White Sox Try to Take Advantage of Series with Lowly Marlins

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 5/24/2013 9:09:37 PM

The Miami Marlins have been one of, if not the worst, teams in the majors this season. The Marlins are at the bottom of the NL East standings with a 13-34 record, and show no signs of improvement happening anytime soon, especially while Giancarlo Stanton remains on the disable list.

The Chicago White Sox have had a more successful season than the Marlins, yet find themselves in fourth place in a tightly contested AL Central with a 21-24 record. The White Sox will have Jake Peavy on the mound for this match-up, further improving their chances of closing the ground between them and the first place Cleveland Indians.

The Marlins have been the sports book decided underdog in almost every one of their games this season, and they will be once again for this game. The Marlins will be sending one of their few promising pitchers Ricky Nolasco to the mound, and although going up against the tough Jake Peavy, Nolasco gives fans some hope of an upset with his 3.96 ERA, which was improved thanks to his last start when he went eight innings and gave up just a single run. The good news for Marlins fans ends their however as one look at their lineup and it's easy to conclude their chances of winning are slim. The Marlins have a few young hitters performing well so far this year, but as a team they rank dead last in the majors in most batting statistics.

Jake Peavy should be able to make quick work of the Marlins as he has shown he is getting back to his old self this year with a 5-2 record and 3.31 ERA through his first eight starts of the year. Although he has been roughed up a couple of times this year, those gambling on this game shouldn't be worried as it was against two tough hitting teams the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Angels. Even if Peavy were to surrender a few runs to the Marlins, he would be backed up by one of the better power hitting teams in the league thanks to Adam Dunn and Alex Rios who have both reached double figures in home runs already.

MLB Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Predicting the outcome of this game is relatively simple when taking into account how bad the Marlins have been this year. They aren't a team that could surprise you and go for double digit runs in a game, and they very easily could be kept off the scoreboard all together if Peavy is dealing on the mound like he has in the past. For those reasons, the Chicago White Sox are my sports betting pick for this Saturday match-up with the Marlins.
