Gamblers Expect 2024 Miami Marlins to Fall Back

Gamblers are not optimistic about Miami’s baseball betting odds prospects. Following an offseason that was among the worst of any team. The Marlins are being virtually ignored in the future market. And when you consider the alternatives in the National League East, Miami is up against it as usual. Last year was a rare playoff season for the Miami Marlins. Manager Skip Schumaker had a tremendous rookie season, producing just the second playoff appearance by Miami since 2003. And the first one in a full season since that 2003 World Series championship campaign.

2024 Miami Marlins Key Players

Last year, CF Jazz Chisholm Jr produced 50 runs, 12 doubles, 19 home runs, and 51 runs batted in with a .250 average and .761 OPS in 2023.

LHP Jesus Luzardo is the number-one starter for Miami. Last year, Luzardo was 10-10 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. It was his best MLB odds
season as a big-league starter.

Overall, in 2023, 3B Jake Burger produced 71 runs, 28 doubles, 34 home runs, and 80 runs batted in with a .250 average and .827 OPS.

2024 Miami Marlins Offseason Moves

Key offseason acquisitions:  C Christian Bethancourt, INF/OF Vidal Bruján, INF Jonah Bride, RHP Calvin Faucher

Key offseason departures: DH Jorge Soler, SS Joey Wendle, C Jacob Stallings, 1B Yuli Gurriel, RHP David Robertson

At the onset, the Marlins had several options entering the offseason. Miami entered the offseason, coming off an 84-win playoff season. But with significant questions to answer about its chances of replicating that success. Especially with Sandy Alcantara out for the season. Then Kim Ng left rather than be demoted, and the Marlins hired Peter Bendix away from the Rays. Overall, that was pretty much the only addition they’d made all winter.

Following the hiring of Peter Bendix to be the organization’s president of baseball operations, Miami has prioritized bolstering various departments. Including those in scouting and player development. Bendix has brought in Gabe Kapler, Rachel Balkovec, Frankie Piliere and Vinesh Kanthan to lead the front office.

Of great concern are the gambling doubts of if the Marlins ran it back to prove 2023 wasn’t a fluke. It won’t be easy with ace Sandy Alcantara (Tommy John surgery rehab) and All-Star slugger Soler (who went to the Giants in free agency) not available in 2024. In sum, Miami ranks 28th for MLB payroll.

2024 Miami Marlins Recap

To summarize, the 2023, the Miami Marlins had a record of 84-78 and finished 3rd in the National League East Division. Offensively, Miami ranked 26th for runs scored, 4th for batting average, 19th for OPS, 23rd for home runs, and 23rd for stolen bases. While defensively, Miami ranked 16th for earned run average, 16th for WHIP, 5th for strikeouts, 17th for quality starts, 26th for fewest errors, and 21st for bullpen ERA. Miami was +281 on the moneyline and -2284 on the run line.

Last season, the Marlins were one of the big surprises on the moneyline but gave gamblers a bath of red ink on the run line. Many observers see the Marlins as a fluke in 2023 and expect a return to their traditional losing ways in 2024. Still, Miami had enough to offer surprise value. The Marlins can be a danger to those laying expensive prices on overlay name-brand favorites.
