The Miami Marlins will visit Truist Park on April 27, 2023, to face off against the Atlanta Braves. As we take a closer look at each team's performance, we can see that the Braves are the clear favorites, with a strong record of 17-8 so far this season, compared to the Marlins' 12-13 record. However, we believe that the Marlins will keep the game close enough to cover the +1.5 run line or even win the game.
The Marlins will be sending out Braxton Garrett to the mound, who has an impressive 2.84 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. While Kyle Wright, who has a 5.93 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP, will be starting for the Braves. With Garrett's strong performance this season, we believe he has the potential to limit the Braves' offense and keep the game close. On the other hand, Wright's performance has not been up to the mark, and the Marlins can take advantage of that.
When it comes to batting, the Braves have a slight edge over the Marlins. They have scored 130 runs this season, while the Marlins have only scored 80 runs. However, the Marlins have been improving their performance lately, scoring 4 runs in each of their last two games against the Braves, even though they lost both. On the other hand, the Braves have been inconsistent, scoring 11 runs in one game and just 2 runs in the next.
The Marlins have a few players on their injury report, but none of them are major contributors to the team's success. Joey Wendle is listed as day-to-day, while Victor Mesa is also listed as day-to-day. For the Braves, Orlando Arcia is on the 10-day IL, and Raisel Iglesias is on the 15-day IL. These injuries are significant, as both Arcia and Iglesias are valuable assets to the team.
While the Braves are undoubtedly the favorites in this matchup, we believe that the Marlins will keep the game close enough to cover the +1.5 run line or even win the game. With Garrett's impressive performance on the mound, the Marlins have a good chance to limit the Braves' offense. Furthermore, the Marlins have been improving their performance at the plate, scoring 4 runs in each of their last two games against the Braves. If they can maintain that level of performance, they could give the Braves a tough time.
Pick: Marlins +1.5
