The Marlins will send Edward Cabrera to the mound, sporting a 6.052 ERA, while the Dodgers will counter with Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who brings a formidable 2.912 ERA.

Looking at their current standings in the 2024 season, the Marlins are at the bottom of the NL East with a 6-24 record, signaling a trying season with only a 20% win rate. Their performance in the division is also lackluster, only managing a single win against nine losses. Despite their struggles, the Marlins have managed to score 104 runs but have given up a significant 168 runs.

Conversely, the Dodgers are faring much better in the NL West, claiming the third spot with a 19-12 record and a solid 61% winning ratio. They top their division matchups with a 6-3 record and have scored 166 runs while conceding 124.

In terms of betting, the odds heavily favor Los Angeles. The point spread stands at -1.5 in favor of the Dodgers, with an Over/Under of 8.0 runs expected in the game. For money line bets, the odds are set at -335 for the Dodgers and +265 for the Marlins, indicating strong confidence in a Dodgers victory. Bettors eyeing potential upsets might find value in backing the underdog Marlins, especially with higher returns on the money line, though the Dodgers’ recent form suggests they’re the safer bet.
