Why you should back the Marlins

Miami’s run prevention is its strength on Thursday. The Marlins have a bullpen with an ERA under 4.00 this season, and Miami’s relievers combine for more than a strikeout per inning in 2022. Philadelphia’s offense is filled with power, but the Phillies are below the NL average in doubles, walks, and on-base percentage. 

Miami starting pitcher Edward Cabrera is also enjoying success in 2022, and the 24-year-old right-hander has a 2.61 ERA this season. Cabrera maintains a 1.065 WHIP with 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings, and opponents are scuffling to the tune of a .544 OPS against him. In his last outing, Cabrera threw five shutout innings, and he is capable of slowing Philadelphia’s offense, even on the road.

Why you should back the Phillies

Philadelphia has the better offense in this matchup by a considerable margin. Miami ranks dead-last in the National League in walks, and the Marlins are in the bottom three of the league in several major categories, including runs scored, hits, home runs, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS, and total bases. In contrast, Philadelphia is in the top three of the NL in home runs and slugging percentage, with top-five marks in runs scored, batting average, OPS, and total bases. 

Two-time All-Star Kyle Schwarber has produced at a high level for Philadelphia, leading the NL in home runs and posting top-10 marks in walks and extra-base hits. From there, the Phillies also have a top-five bullpen in the National League, and starting pitcher Kyle Gibson owns a 2.87 ERA in his last five starts and a 2.89 ERA across three outings against the Marlins this season.
