4* MLB *Mound Mismatch* on Marlins -142
Miami has the edge on the mound with Josh Johnson, who has been living up to his "ace" title after some early struggles. The Marlins are 6-0 in his last 6 starts and he has only given up more than 3 earned runs in one of those outings. The Marlins are also 5-0 in his last 5 starts as a favorite, 7-0 in his last 7 starts as a home favorite of -110 to -150 and 4-0 in his last 4 starts vs. a team with a winning record.
Atlanta's Delgado has been struggling (6.75 ERA L3 starts. The Braves are 0-5 in his last 5 starts as an underdog, 0-4 in his last 4 starts as an underdog of +110 to +150 and 0-4 in his last 4 starts as a road underdog.
Besides the obvious advantage on the mound, this is also a strong situational spot for Miami. Home teams that are out for revenge for an upset loss at home to an opponent and are coming off a loss by 10 runs or more to a division rival are 72-28 since 1997. Take the Marlins.
