What Sports Bettors Should Know for Sunday, May 4th

1. MLB

– For the first time in many years, there is legitimate interest surrounding the Miami Marlins which is mainly due to the performance of stud RHP Jose Fernandez (2.08 ERA in 34 career starts). In fact, the Marlins have opened as -195 favorites for Sunday’s game against the Dodgers. They have not been this large of a favorite since July 22, 2010.

Indians 2B Jason Kipnis, Oblique, DL
