MLB betting odds on Saturday favor the Florida Marlins as they host the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Marlins have been just an average team at home this season versus the MLB betting odds but gamblers really don’t like taking the Pirates very often when making a MLB bet.
MLB betting trends actually show that Pittsburgh and Florida had split their last 20 games before this series began. The Marlins had won 6 of the last 10 at home against the Pirates as MLB betting results show. Andrew Miller could be getting the call for the Marlins in this game. He gave up five runs in a loss to Tampa Bay in his last outing. He should be better against the Pirates though. In fact the entire Florida team is happy to see Interleague play end. Florida matches up a lot better with the National League. Miller is 2-3 with a 3.91 ERA since coming off the DL as MLB bet statistics tell us. Last season the Marlins hosted the Pirates in a three-game series and won two of the three games in MLB betting.
There are not many strong MLB betting trends for the total in this game as the teams have split in over/unders in the last 10 meetings in Florida.
Pittsburgh has been a solid team at home this season in MLB betting but they have struggled on the road. The Pirates have similar offensive and defensive numbers to the Marlins but overall not many gamblers like to take them when making a MLB bet. The Pirates have a young team that can struggle on the road in MLB betting.
The Marlins have started to slip in recent weeks in terms of their overall MLB betting numbers. In the National League East they are still very much in the race but that is mainly because Philadelphia and the Mets have struggled. Florida now has below average hitting and pitching numbers as MLB betting statistics show and it is starting to catch up with them. Florida’s lineup is simply too inconsistent which means the Marlins are a streaky team. When they are hitting the ball the Marlins can be a great MLB bet at the online sportsbook but when they are not they can lose to anyone.
