Starting pitchers

Aaron Nola vs. Jesus Luzardo

Luzardo has been on a roll as of late. He has not allowed a single earned run in any of his last three starts, all of which lasted between six and seven innings. He also recorded at least eight strikeouts in each of those three starts. In April, he went six innings against the Phillies and conceded three earned runs.

Nola didn’t look great against the Cubs to close out June, but he bounced back with a 7.1-inning start against the Rays on the road. He recorded a whopping 12 strikeouts and conceded just one earned run. Earlier this season, he let up four earned runs in five innings to the Marlins.

Over/Under pick

The totals of the first two games were 7 and 8, and we bring two very excellent pitchers to the mound here. Neither team ranks above 15th in runs per game in MLB, so it’s safe to say we can expect this to be a defensive battle.

Pick: Under 7

Moneyline pick

The teams have split the series thus far in close games, and we have an exciting pitching matchup on our hands here. I think it will be a close one, but I have to go with the Marlins and Luzardo here. He hasn’t allowed a run in weeks, and the Marlins have home field advantage and are coming off yesterday’s win.

Pick: Marlins -120
