A few weeks ago I profiled the Marlins success pitching. In the article I stated you can capitalize on overs and playing betting against the Marlins over the course of the next few weeks. The obvious glaring statistic that everyone is on is the Marlins home vs away record. They’ve been dominant at home and awful on the road.

Though they’ve been losing on the road it has not prevented them from hitting the ball well. They have a solid nucleus of young players that can hit. The first few games in their current series against the Giants has seen runs galore from both teams. Facing Tim Lincecum tonight figures to be a reversal of their hot bats.

Finding value in baseball is how you make money over the course of the season. Lincecum is coming off of a gem game of two hit baseball in his last outing. Certainly people will be on the Giants and the under. I’ll stay away from a team pick in this one and go with the current trend and play the over.

Value currently is at +105 on this total. Tom Koehler is coming off a shaky outing against the Dodgers in which he lasted just 3 1/3. Base hits have been plentiful in the series. Both teams hit in double digits for base hits last night, and the night before saw the Giants hit twelve and the Marlins six.

Play the over early before it shifts to a non plus payout.
