New York Mets vs Miami Marlins
The Marlins, after blitzing their roster in pre-season, can have a limited (if any) serious ambitions for this year. With a mixture of a very young and veteran line-up, they are paying for players at the lower end of the market - this can bring success, but it often doesn't. Losing star-men Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle (of White Sox perfect game fame) may have done wonders for the payroll, but it will have done little for improving the starting line-up. The Marlins are a team in transition and against any decent opposition are unlikely to make waves - although this is baseball and anything can happen on any given day.
With an 0-3 start against the Nationals and failing to even score a run until the 20th inning of the season (scoreless twice to open the campaign) this is unlikely to be an away win for the Marlins.
It is all well and good trash-talking Miami but the Mets were not exactly expected to do much this year either. However, they opened with 2 solid wins (11-2; 8-4) against the Padres in New York and should expect to beat the travelling Marlins.
With pretty much the whole line-up pitching in with scores (9 players already have at least 1 RBI to their name) the Mets shouldn't find it difficult to score against pitcher Alex Sanabia who has MLB career stats of 10 games played, 0 wins, 3 losses, 7.07 ERA.
Pretty long-winded review for a 1.61 bet but the evidence is fairly compelling. Go Mets!
