Marlins vs Mets Prediction & Pick

The Marlins need a strong performance from starting pitcher Trevor Rogers if they hope to win. The 6-foot-5 lefty recorded a 6.23 ERA over 4 1/3 innings in a 5-1 loss to the Mets in his 2023 debut last week. He's now allowed 12 runs on 19 hits over his last 18 2/3 innings against New York, picking up a pair of losses over that span.

Meanwhile, Kodai Senga was the winning pitcher in that aforementioned effort. The Japanese rookie only gave up 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 8 Marlins batters over 5 1/3 winnings.

Considering how the Mets are already 4-1 against the Marlins this season, I don't see the home team losing this evening. While Miami is better than it showed yesterday, Rogers' struggles against New York can't be ignored. With strong home crowd support on its side, New York will prevail.

Final Score Prediction: Mets: 5 | Marlins: 2

Marlins vs Mets Best Bet

The Mets are more than capable of winning this evening by a multi-run margin. After all, each of their four victories against the Marlins has been by multiple runs. With New York already outscoring Miami 26-11 so far this season, the Mets have more than proven that they can cover the 1.5-run spread later today.

Bet: New York Mets -1.5 (+118)
