MLB Saturday

5-4 +1,790

Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins
The Marlins at 2-9 looks like they're in for another long season, but before you write them off they will send young Jose Fernandez to the mound. This kid can pitch. He came up on the fast track from 2011 amateur draft and prior to this season ranked #7 MLB prospect. He is a Cuban defector 220lbs at 6'4" who has hit 99mph on the radar gun and major league level breaking pitch. His debut was impressive against the Mets and economical, 3 hits 1 run, 8 K's, 1 BB in 5 innings at 80 pitches for no decision, was in line for the win, but Mets rallied in the 9th.  He'll definitely go more than 80 pitches.  Philadelphia started on the wrong foot but, on the way to recovery winning last 3 and now the record stands at 5-5. Cole Hamels going for the Phillies is also trying to recover.  Both of his starts were dismal, but Hamels is a proven quality pitcher and he will likely get back on track. Phillies have been crushing the ball at Citizens Ballpark, 5 Over's out of 6 home games but, offensive production drops on the road and today's pitchers will not help the Over.  Miami is suffering power outage and have only scored more than 3 runs once. Obviously Miami is playing Under. I like this game to go Under 7.5

Game Total UNDER 7.5 at -107 for 1 unit(W)
