Free MLB Picks Analysis: Miami plays poorly on the road with a 12-19 record on the highway. Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton does not hit nearly as well on the road as he does at home which is bad new for a Marlins lineup missing All-Star catcher Jared Saltamacchia. Miami will find runs hard to come by against Rangers ace Yu Darvish (6-2 2.36) who has been lights out in recent outings. Marlins right-hander Jacob Turner (2-3 5.93) has been hit hard all season, allowing four or more runs in six of his eight starts. Marlins vs Rangers Betting Odds Total is at 8.5 Runs.
The Rangers lineup is banged up but some of their big bats are starting to heat up with cleanup hitter Adrian Beltre swinging a hot stick. A Rangers bullpen that was short-handed against Miami in game 1 will have all of their parts in the series finale and should light up Miami starter Jacob Turner. Bet a more talented Rangers bunch at home to beat an overachieving Marlins team.
