The Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies are locked in a pivotal series between two teams who are battling for a National League wild card round.

The Marlins dropped the first two games, but with it being a four-game set, they have a chance to even the score.

Let's dive into the betting odds for Wednesday's action and then I'll give you my best bet.

Phillies vs. Marlins prediction and pick

Instead of a side or total in this game, I'm eyeing a player prop instead. I think Braxton Garrett is in for a big game in the strikeout department.

Braxton Garrett and the Miami Marlins will take on the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday and the Phillies have had major strikeout issues lately. Over the last 30 days, the Phillies have the fourth highest strikeout rate against left-handed pitchers, striking out on 28% of their plate appearances.

Garrett's strikeout rate also goes up when playing at home. He averages 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings on the road and 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings at home. I like him to go over his total tonight.
