MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Marlins at Philadephia Phillies

Miami (Chen) -131 at Philadelphia O/U 8.5 
Recommendation: Miami

The Philadelphia Phillies host the Miami Marlins for the third game of a four game series. This is a classic case of ride the hot and fade the cold. The Phillies managed just five hits Tuesday, and over their past three games -- all losses -- they have generated just three runs and 10 hits while striking out 34 times. They fanned 11 times against five Marlins pitchers yesterday. On the exact opposite side, the Marlins have won seven of their past eight games, taking each of the first two games in this four-game series.

Philly's Jeremy Hellickson continues to be the subject of trade speculation, with the August 1 non-waiver deadline approaching. The 29-year-old righty’s stuff has been in decline for years and I doubt the uncertainty of his future will help. A suspect pitcher backed by an even more suspenct offer. "We're in that hitting funk again," manager Pete Mackanin said. "We're just not swinging the bats. Too many bad at-bats. We're not grinding out at-bats, and we need to do that. ... Too many called third strikes with men in scoring position. That's a pet peeve of mine, and we're going to address that."

Marlins starter Wei-Yin Chen went through a rough patch in June but has bounced back with four straight solid outings against the likes of Chicago, St. Louis, and New York. He's a farily middling National League starter but will be supported by the far superior offense. If he keeps the ball in the park this evening, the Marlins get the victory.
