Miami +125 over Atlanta
6:10 PM. The Marlins are a team we have discussed frequently this season. A team on the verge of contending, the Marlins are a fraction away from posting a top-5 record in the majors. The Marlins are an insane 4-13 in one-run games this year. As a result of its weak recent form on paper (caused by extreme poor fortune) the Marlins remain without question one of the most undervalued teams in the league. It is for that reason that we’ll put them on our radar and play them every game for the next 15 games. We started this on May 20th and it will end on June 5th after the final game of four against San Francisco. This is Game 2 of 15. So far we are 0-1.
Here are today’s starting pitchers:
Prior to 2022, Kyle Wright (RHP - ATL) had amassed a 6.56 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 70 MLB innings, spread over four seasons. The Braves allowed him to spend virtually the entire 2021 season at Triple-A Gwinnett where he posted a 3.02 ERA in 137 IP, and he has carried that momentum into 2022 with a sparkling 2.79 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 42 innings with 50 K’s and just 12 walks issued. No question he has looked every bit the top flight prospect the Braves pegged him to be when they selected him fifth overall in 2017.
Elieser Hernandez (RHP - MIA) battled injuries in 2021, which contributed to his mediocre 4.18 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. When he pitched, his skills were really good: 24% K%, 6% BB%, 17% K-BB%, 38% grounders and a 3.99 xERA. His bugaboo was gopheritis (2.3 HR/9), as batters had no problem squaring him up. Gopheritis is once again phishing him this year (2.7 HR/9) but at this park, his chances of keeping the ball in the yard increases. He is in no way the superior starter here but we’re not playing starters. We’re playing Miami to beat Atlanta and we also find it a little curious that the Braves are p[riced this low.
Miami +125 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.50)
