This is a Free play on the Miami Marlins +1.5.

The Marlins (22-47) are the worst team in the Major Leagues, so why would anyone want to bet on them? Well they have won six of their last nine games overall, including a 3-2 win in last night's series opener in Arizona. It's no coincidence that the Marlin's improved play just so happens to have come at the same time as Giancarlo Stanton returned to the lineup.

It was a solo home run (his second of the game) from Stanton that put the Fish in front in the top of the ninth, in last night's 3-2 win at Chase Field. He has recorded at least one hit in each of his seven games back from the DL, and he's batting .393 with four home runs and 10 RBIs during that span. He sure likes playing in Arizona, he's hit .349 with six homers and 13 RBIs in 12 visits to Phoenix.

The Diamondbacks have called up Randall Delgado from Triple-A to make his first start of the season tonight. He pitched his way out of the starting lineup during spring training, posting an ERA of 7.45 in six appearances. He also struggled in his only appearance at Chase Field this season, allowing a pair of runs in two innings as a reliever.

The Marlins will hand the ball to Nate Eovaldi, who is also making his season debut as a starter for the Fish. Eovaldi doesn't have a ton of major league experience, but he has been successful in previous trips to Arizona. He's 2-0 with a 3.97 ERA in two prior starts at Chase Field.

The Diamondbacks are mired in a four game losing skid, and they are in a tough spot against a red hot Marlins team. The Fish should be able to hang with Arizona tonight.

Take Miami +1.5
