VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Monday’s matchup between the Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies.

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Miami Marlins Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Phillies had their nine-game winning streak snapped on Sunday, and they look to start a new one on Monday with the Miami Marlins in town.

Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies (-135, 7.5)

Getting the start for the Phillies will be Aaron Nola, who has done his best pitching at home throughout his career. He has a 3.20 ERA and 4.5 strikeout-to-walk rate in Philadelphia compared to a 4.16 ERA and 3.5 strikeout-to-walk rate on the road.

Nola leads all qualified National League starters this season with an 8.5 strikeout-to-walk rate and 1.2 walks per nine innings, helping generate to a 0.884 WHIP, which also leads the National League.

The Marlins counter with Sandy Alcantara, whose 5.9 hits per nine innings allowed leads qualifying National League starters. He has allowed three earned runs in his last six starts, a stretch in which he’s logged 48 innings.

The Phillies have allowed three runs or fewer in six of their last nine games and will be in for a low-scoring pitchers’ duel on Monday.
