Miami Marlins vs New York Mets: MLB NL East Prediction

New York Mets: Aiming to maul Miami again

Having steamrolled to the top of the NL East standings, thanks to an 8-2 recent run, New York looks to keep the good times rolling down in South Beach. Fresh of a sweep of the Washington Nationals this past weekend, the Mets cruised into Florida and have mauled Miami by 12-1 and 5-1 scores. While series sweeps are not an easy task, the Mets are in good hands as RHP Matt Harvey (9-7 ERA 2.91) heads to the bump for New York tonight. Harvey is getting stronger as the season moves along.

Miami Marlins: Suddenly in a battle for the Major League Baseball cellar

While it’s not something to write home about, Miami had a 38-52 record and they were nine games clear of the MLB cellar at the All-Star break. Fast-forward to today and the Marlins are just one loss away from falling into a tie with the Philadelphia Phillies for the worst mark in the Majors. Miami has posted a 5-14 record since returning from the Midsummer Classic – good for the worst mark in the Majors. RHP David Phelps (4-7 ERA 3.93) will toe the rubber for the Marlins in this contest.

New York vs Miami MLB Prediction: Harvey has been on a roll as he’s allowed eleven earned runs (15 total) over 53.1 innings pitched during his last eight starts. Despite allowing just nine earned runs, Phelps has failed to register a win over his last six starts as the Marlins have been outscored by a 24-7 margin in those contests. The Mets added some much needed punch to their batting order at the trade deadline and they will be a force during the playoff stretch drive. Give us New York with a 500 unit wager on the money line odds posted at the Sportsbook.ag online wagering website.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
