Miami at Philadelphia

1.5 units on Philadelphia +105 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.08) RESULT: LOSS
The Miami Marlins and the Philadelphia Phillies have both struggled in the early going this season. The Phillies were expected to struggle, but this Miami team appeared to have turned the corner last season with some nice young talent. The Marlins will go with former Yankee David Phelps, but he was disappointing for the most part in Pinstripes, and has thus far been worse as a Marlin as he has started the season at 0-0 with a 7.94 ERA. Dustin McGowan has not pitched a whole lot over the past several years, but so far he appears to be getting it done with a 2.57 ERA in seven innings out of the bullpen. The Marlins have struggled in their last 28 games vs. a right-handed pitcher at an ugly 7-21. Play on Philadelphia.
