Last pick: Mets vs. Braves under 7 runs = PUSH (4-3 final score)       Record: 1-1

Marlins (Sanchez) vs. Phillies (Halladay) UNDER 7 RUNS

Anibal Sanchez is 6-1 with a 3.06 ERA on the season. His ERA is even better on the road, sitting at 2.93. In his last 10 starts, 4 of them have been shutouts, including a complete game shutout at home vs. the Rockies and one in San Francisco. With Josh Johnson on the disabled list, he is the Marlins best starting pitcher. While doing research, I found an article describing how Sanchez asked his coach if he could pitch against Halladay because he is up for the challenge. I believe this could provide him with some extra motivation also. Roy Halladay, on the other hand has been of the best pitchers the past few years. He is 9-3 with a 2.39 ERA this season. He has a 2.34 ERA at home and 9 out of his last 10 starts, he has allowed 3 runs or less. Halladay also has an excellent 2.13 ERA in 55 innings pitched against the Marlins. Another thing to mention is that this is the second game in the doubleheader and I believe the hitters might be a little tired from playing earlier, giving the pitchers an advantage. BET UNDER 7.
