Miami Marlins at Oakland Athletics Prediction

Heading into Tuesday’s interleague matchup between Miami and Oakland, the Marlins have the slight edge on the moneyline. However, the best bet for the game comes on the run-total, as I expect the two teams to surpass 7 runs. Even though Miami doesn’t have a powerful offense, everyone has been hitting well of Zach Logue. In addition, Pablo Lopez seems to be slowing down to finish the year.

Free MLB Pick: Over 7 Runs.
