Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 9/30/2020

Miami will look to do good during the playoffs as they had a pretty rough start to the season. A lot of the teams’ players were out due to COVID-19 but this make-shift team was able to claw their way into the postseason. The team’s pitching ranks 21st in the majors with a team ERA of 4.86 while they don’t have the best offense but remain consistent to make it this far. They have a team BAA of .244 which is in 17th place while making 263 total points this season. Jesus Aguilar has 52 hits for the team at .277 BAA while Brian Anderson has a team-high of 38 RBIs and 11 homers. The Marlins are 7th in the National League with a 31-29 record and are 2nd in the NL East Division. The squad split their last 10 games played. Sandy Alcantara will be on the mound in game 1. He recorded 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA with 39 strikeouts in the regular season. 

Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs. MLB’s pick for the game is the Chicago Cubs -190. Chicago doesn’t have a deadly mix of strong offense and pitching but they are still topping the NL Central. Their pitching is on point with somewhat of an inconsistent offense but still pull through in their games. Alcantara is doing well for the Marlins with 4 earned runs in 19.1 innings while allowed 4 earned runs in 16 innings. Chicago is the better team and they will get through Miami. The Marlins record 1-9 in their last 10 games against the Cubs. Chicago fishes out the Marlins to a predicted score of 6-3.
