San Francisco Giants (33-34 SU 34-30 O/U) at Miami Marlins (25-42 SU 33-34 O/U)

MLB: Wednesday June 11, 2018 at 7:10 p.m. ET

The Giants have lost three of their last four games and with their last loss they fell below .500 on the season. However, even with a losing record they are only 4.5 games out of first place in the NL: West. The lineup ranks in the middle of the pack in terms of runs scored, but they do not rank in the top 20 in team ERA.

After losing two in a row the Marlins have won the first two games of this series outscoring the Giants 10-6. They are still in the basement of the NL East 13.5 games back of the Atlanta Braves and they have the 2nd fewest wins in the NL. Miami has issues on the season at the dish and on the hill not ranking in the top 25 in the bigs in runs scored and team ERA.

The Marlins are 7-1 in their last eight games facing the Giants.

One and done

In the 2nd game of this series the Giants lost to the Marlins 3-1 where they scored one run in the first innings and were shut out the rest of the game. They only had three hits in the game and Chris Stratton took the loss giving up three earned runs in seven innings. Andrew Suarez (2-4 5.06 ERA) gets the start in Game 3 of this series and in his last outing he gave up four earned runs on six hits in only four innings in a 9-5 win over the Washington Nationals. After losing four in a row with him on the hill the Giants have won his last two starts and the one previous to his last one was his best on the season pitching six scoreless innings and only giving up three hits in a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Suarez has struggled on the road this season with an ERA of 6.75 and opponents are hitting .340 facing him. While Brandon Crawford is 0 for his last 6 he has two RBI in this series and in his last eight games has eight RBI. He leads the Giants batting .329 and in June he is hitting a scorching .485. On the season San Francisco is 14-23 on the road.

Richards notches first win

In Game 2 of this series Miami starter Trevor Richards picked up his first Major League win after three losses and three no decisions in his first six starts this season. He only gave up one earned run and only allowed two hits in six innings of work. The Marlins scored three runs on six hits and Starlin Castro was 2 for 4 with a RBI. Caleb Smith (5-6 3.70 ERA) gets the nod in this Game 3 and in his last start he did not give up any runs and gave up four hits in five innings in a 4-0 win over the San Diego Padres. The Marlins have won three of his last four outings where he only gave up two earned runs, but in the start previous to his last one he gave up five earned runs in only four innings in a 6-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. This will be Smith’s first career start facing the Giants and at home this season he has a respectable ERA of 2.90. Brian Anderson leads Miami in both batting average and RBI and in this series he is 4 for 7 with four runs scored. This season the Marlins are only 13-20 at home.

Trends

The San Francisco Giants are:

  • 3-7 in their last 10 road games vs. a left-handed starter
  • 0-5 in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400
  • 0-4 in their last 4 games vs. a left-handed starter

The Miami Marlins are:

  • 9-4 in their last 13 home games vs. a team with a losing record

Both starters in this game are lefties and the Giants have lost their last four road games facing a left-hand starter. That trend will continue, as Smith will have his 2nd straight solid start leading the fish to a win and Miami will go for the sweep on Thursday.

PICK: Marlins

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
