Why you should back the Marlins
Miami has a great deal of team speed, ranking in the top five of the National League in both stolen bases and triples. The Marlins are also above-average in the NL with 68 home runs, and Miami is led by two intriguing bats. Jazz Chisholm is Miami’s most exciting player, and he hit a game-tying home run on Tuesday. Chisholm boasts a .546 slugging percentage in 2022 with 13 home runs, 10 stolen bases, and four triples.
Elsewhere, Garrett Cooper has a .311 batting average and a .382 on-base percentage, making a considerable impact. Miami should also benefit from Philadelphia’s shortcomings. Phillies starter Kyle Gibson has a 6.07 ERA in his last six outings and a 10.80 career ERA against Miami. The Phillies are also in the bottom tier of MLB in defensive metrics, and Philadelphia’s bullpen has the highest walk rate (4.64 per nine innings) in the National League this season.
Why you should back the Phillies
Philadelphia should be able to take advantage of Miami’s lackluster lineup. The Marlins are below the National League average in runs scored, hits, on-base percentage and myriad additional categories. From there, Miami has the third-fewest doubles and the third-fewest walks in the NL this season.
Gibson should benefit, and he has a 3.63 ERA in home starts and a 3.54 in day games this season. Gibson also effectively slows left-handed hitters, holding them to a .589 combined OPS. The Phillies also land in the top five of the NL in runs scored, greatly outpacing Miami in overall offensive firepower. The Phillies are in the top three of the NL in home runs (80), slugging percentage (.426) and OPS (.745) this season, and Philadelphia also has 38 stolen bases, a top-five mark in the league.
