3 units on Miami PICK runs +130 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Florida Marlins have gotten some help in their rotation with the return of Anibel Sanchez, who has made five starts and pitched to a respectable 3.99 ERA. Sanchez is no stranger to Turner Field and the Braves as he has fared brilliantly there. He has posted a 1.80 ERA here against the Braves. Charlie Morton is in the throws of a deep slump, and the Braves have now lost six of his last seven starts. Morton lasted just 1.1 innings in his last start, walking five hitters in the process. The last three starts show Morton yielding 11 runs and 11 walks in less than 10 innings of work. The walks killed him against the Marlins earlier in the season as all four of his free passes resulted in runs. We will take the Marlins on the runline here.
