New York at Miami Game Preview

After getting swept in last week’s four-game road series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Mets turned things around this past weekend with three-straight victories against the Giants in San Francisco. With a day to recover from any lingering West Coast jet lag, New York will head to Miami with an overall record of 34-41 that includes a 17-18 record on the road. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing nine-run line in Sunday’s 8-2 victory as a +146 underdog and it has gone OVER in 11 of its last 13 contests.

New York is expected to kick off this series with Robert Gsellman as its starter for Tuesday night. The right-hander has gotten bounced around pretty good in his last two outings with a combined 14 earned runs allowed on 20 hits including six home runs. His ERA through 13 previous starts has shot up to 6.04 with a 1.62 WHIP. He is now an even 5-5 on the year.

The Marlins hosted the Chicago Cubs for an extended four-game set at home this past weekend and with Sunday’s 4-2 win as +131 home underdogs they were able to salvage a 2-2 split. The total stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ closing line in the last three games of that matchup. Miami is now 34-40 overall with a 20-19 record at Marlins Park.

It appears that Dan Straily will be on the mound this Tuesday night as Miami’s starter. The right-hander went a full six innings in his last start and he held Washington to just one earned run on three hits. His ERA on the year stands at 3.43 with a 1.10 WHIP. When it comes to scoring runs this season, the Marlins are ranked 10th in the National League with an average of 4.6 runs per game.

I like Miami’s chances to get this series started on a positive note with a victory on Tuesday night. Straily’s current form is a plus and New York could have its issues with its starter if Gsellman cannot quickly turn things around.
