Washington Nationals vs Miami Marlins 5/16/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Washington Nationals will meet with the Miami Marlins in MLB action in loanDepot park, FL, on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 6:40 PM ET. The Washington Nationals, who are 5-15 at home this year, may enjoy this road trip as they strive to rise out of the NL East Division bottom.


Over the weekend, Washington dropped two of three matches to the Houston Astros, including an 8-0 thrashing on Sunday. In six innings, Nationals starter Patrick Corbin gave up 6 hits and 5 runs, including three home runs.


Washington’s bats were kept quiet throughout the game, with only four singles. The Nationals will aim to rebound against a Marlins club that swept them two weeks ago in Washington.


To begin the 2022 season, the Nationals’ starting pitching was among the worst in baseball. With only 5 quality starts so far this season, they are in 27th place.


The pitching staff ranks 29th in earned runs and 28th in earned run average. In the first match of the series, Washington will rely on Sanchez. He made four starts thus far, going 2-2 with 19 innings pitched and 24 hits allowed. So far, Sanchez allowed 16 earned runs while striking out only 10 hitters.


  • The Washington Nationals are 3-8 SU in their last 11 matches.
  • Washington is 1-4 SU in their previous 5 matches on the road.
  • The Nationals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches in the National League.

Washington Nationals vs Miami Marlins Predictions 5/16/2022


After Sunday’s defeat to the Brewers, the Marlins are now 15-19. The Marlins sank in recent weeks after a fast start that put them just behind the Mets in the NL East rankings. The club lost two of three games versus the Brewers, including a 7-3 setback on Sunday.


The Marlins led 3-1 before the Brewers scored four runs in the fifth inning to put the game out of reach. On the day, Miami recorded only five hits, including Jorge Solar’s seventh home run and second in two days.


Elieser Hernandez of Miami gave up five runs on three hits with three walks and two strikeouts. In the fifth inning, Hernandez let up back-to-back Milwaukee home drives, giving him a season total of 10 home runs.


Over the weekend, the Marlins received some terrible news as left-hander Jess Luzardo (left forearm strain) was put on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 12.


The Marlins will look to righty Poteet to make his first appearance of the year on Monday with Luzaro out of the rotation. Poteet pitched in eight games out of the bullpen, allowing only nine hits in 16 innings. In his eight outings, he has 14 strikeouts and 7 walks. Expect a bullpen game from the Marlins’ staff with Poteet getting the spot start.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Miami’s previous 5 matches.
  • The Miami Marlins are 3-11 SU in their last 14 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Miami’s last 7 matches at home.

Washington Nationals vs Miami Marlins. The MLB pick for this game is the Washington Nationals. Get in early on this wager since you’ll have a decent chance of getting a solid line in a game that would have shifted substantially in Miami’s favor if Luzardo was able to start.


The Marlins have the best ERA in the majors, but they’ll have to start with a bullpen game. While Sanchez was not spectacular this season, he should be able to get the Nationals into the sixth inning, as he did against the Mets in his last start.


The Marlins’ lineup is in the center of the pack, as indicated by their 16th-place finish in runs scored this season. The Nationals’ bats scored 28 runs in each of their past three victories, and I anticipate them to do it again in this game. The Washington Nationals will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
