Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins Prediction

Heading into Sunday’s NL East matchup between Philadelphia and Miami, the over-under line is set at 7 runs. In his first start vs the Marlins, Aaron Nola allowed just 2 runs across 7 innings. In that game, the teams combined for just 5 runs. With Philadelphia dealing with injuries in their lineup, I see this being a low-scoring game. I recommend taking the under.
