How To Bet On Braves Marlins – Surprising Marlins Look To Show Off New Digs

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/31/2012 3:40:19 PM

With a new name, a new logo, a new manager and a brand-new state-of-the-art stadium complete with a nightclub beyond the right outfield wall, the Miami Marlins had everything in place for a fresh start this season, but there were still question marks about the roster. Fast-forward two months later and the Marlins are right there near the top of the National League East challenging for the division lead, as they prepare to show off their new digs in a three-game sports bet series against a team they were expected to be trailing at this point in time, the Atlanta Braves.

Miami’s new manager is Ozzie Guillen, and the truth is that he has gotten the most out of his roster so far this season, playing a big role in the team’s success despite a run differential that is bordering on even. The pitching staff has undoubtedly helped Guillen out with the most quality starts in the majors, and a combined 3.60 ERA that ranks eighth, but the offense has struggled mightily and will need better production if the Marlins are going to contend for a division title. The perfect illustration of the offense’s struggles is reflected in the record of Anibal Sanchez, who will start the series opener. Sanchez is just 3-3 on the year despite a solid 2.57 ERA, the best mark among Miami’s starters. Sanchez will look to get back above .500 when he makes his first start against the Braves this season, and he should get enough help if he can hold his own with Randall Delgado and his 4.58 ERA on the mound for Atlanta.

Perhaps one of the biggest surprises on the Marlins’ roster so far this season is that the team’s ace Josh Johnson has the worst ERA or all five starters through 11 appearances, with a 4.83 mark. Still, Miami has somehow won the last six games that he has started, with Johnson going 3-0 along the way. Braves’ starter Tim Hudson has really struggled of late with 12 runs allowed in his last 12.1 innings pitched, and at 36-years old it could be a case where his condition worsens as the sports betting season goes on.

Atlanta won’t get much help in terms of pitching support in this online sportsbook series, with Mike Minor set to close out the series with his 6.98 ERA, having not allowed less than four earned runs in any of his last five starts. The Braves continue to stick it out with the 24-year old, and that is good news for Miami as it goes for the sweep. The Marlins have won the last five games that Mark Buehrle has started, and will look to make it six-in-a-row as they continue to challenge for the division lead.
