Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins Prediction

Heading into Friday’s NL East showdown between Philadelphia and Miami, the Marlins have the edge on the moneyline. Even though Kyle Gibson is coming off an outstanding start vs the Cardinals, I don’t see the Phillies producing enough offense vs Sandy Alcantara and his WHIP of .91. I like Miami on the moneyline.
