Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins MLB Betting Lines Update
As expected in the preseason, the Miami Marlins are one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball this year. That’s not good news for the South Beach Boys as the white-hot Atlanta Braves roll in town tonight.
Atlanta is looking to build on their overall best record in the National League while Miami is searching for their second win of the season. First pitch is slated for April 10, 2013, at 7:10 PM EDT from Marlins Park.
Atlanta Braves: Cruising along in the National League
Count us in the crowd who thought Atlanta would have a decent, though not spectacular, ball club this season. You can also count in the crowd that’s surprised by their torrid 7-1 start as they have rolled through the Philadelphia Phillies, the Chicago Cubs and are now picking on the lowly Miami Marlins. LHP Mike Minor gets the call for the Braves tonight as he looks to build on his solid five hit and one run seven inning performance against the Cubs in a 4-1 Braves win last Friday.
Miami Marlins: New Stadium, new name, same old fight less Marlins
When you hold a fire sale during the off season every year, one would expect that the team selling would be able to stockpile some young talent. That’s not the case with Marlins who shipped away all of their star players during the 2012 off-season. The result has been a disastrous 1-7 start as Miami has been outscored 32-16 through their first eight contests. Things won’t get any better any time soon in South Beach. RHP Alex Sanabia who has the lone Marlins win gets the call for Miami.
