Marlins vs Diamondbacks: MLB National League Betting Preview
Playing above their expectations, Miami was posted with a +5000 MLB World Series money line price in the preseason, the Marlins are 32-29 and sit 5.5 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East Division. Miami has been surprisingly good on the road this season as they are sporting an 18-13 record as visitors – compared to their 14-16 mark they have posted at Marlins Park.
Following a busy offseason, during which the Diamondbacks landed prize free agent pitcher Zack Greinke, bigger things were expected in Arizona this year. The plans haven’t worked out though as Arizona is 26-37 overall and they have slid 10.5 games behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West Division. The DBacks have been brutal at home as they are 10-23 on the turf at Chase Field.

MLB Betting Tip: Jose Fernandez vs Zack Godley Gives Miami a Pitching Advantage
Somewhat overshadowed by the likes of aces Clayton Kershaw and Jake Arrieta, Miami RHP Jose Fernandez (9-2 ERA 2.29) is one of the best pitchers in baseball. Looking to earn a Marlins franchise record ninth straight victory Fernandez has allowed just eight runs, while recording 78 strikeouts, during his last eight starts. Fernandez struck out 14 and shutout the Mets 1-0 during his last start.
Pitching has been a major problem in the desert this season as Arizona sits 27th overall with a 4.76 team ERA and that number jumps to 5.62 in games at home. Sophomore RHP Zack Godly has been called up from Triple-A Reno and will make his first start of the 2016 MLB season tonight. Godly posted a solid 5-1 record with a 3.19 ERA during nine appearances last year. Back the Marlins here.
