Florida at Philadelphia -145 (9 UNDER): The Marlins hope their bats wake up; they were silent while being swept by the hapless Nationals. Pitcher Ricky Nolasco has shown improvement after his stint in the minors with Florida winning eight of his last 10 starts. Philadelphia’s Joe Blanton has allowed just six earned runs in his last five trips to the mound, so don’t expect a scoring fest here. Thus, the best play in this match-up is UNDER 9, with a slight lean to the Phillies to prevail.
