It’s a full slate of games across the MLB on Saturday and there is plenty of value across the board in terms of betting. Let’s take a look at a free MLB pick for each of the games.
Los Angeles Dodgers -200 at Pittsburgh Pirates +180 Total: 7.5
The Dodgers have played a tough schedule heading into this game, and they have struggled. The Pirates sed J.T Brubaker to the mound and he has pitched well this season sitting with an ERA of 3.74. The Pirates might not win this game, but they will keep it close.
Play: Pirates +1.5
New York Mets -126 at Baltimore Orioles +105 Total: 9
The Mets offense hasn’t been great this season, but they are going to find success against Bruce Zimmerman who hasn’t been great. Look for the Orioles to also give Zimmerman some run support and this is going to be a high-scoring affair. Back the over.
Atlanta Braves +134 at Philadelphia Phillies -161 Total: 8.5
The Phillies have been inconsistent this season, but this is a great chance to back them. Drew Smyly struggled against the Phillies earlier this season and he is going to struggle again in this game. Back the Phillies to get the job done on the money line.
Play: Phillies ML
Seattle Mariners +102 at Detroit Tigers -112 Total: 8
The Mariners as underdogs is the play here. The Tigers have been a good surprise this season, but they have still been way too inconsistent and that is going to haunt them again in this game. Marco Gonzales is coming off a strong start and he is going to slow down the Tigers. Look for the Mariners to win this game at a very nice price.
Play: Mariners ML +102
Colorado Rockies +154 at Miami Marlins -168 Total: 7.5
Both starting pitchers in this game have been good, and both of these offenses have been inconsistent. On Monday, the Marlins had a chance to tie the game late but could only manage three runs and their offense is going to struggle again in this one. Look for a very low-scoring game and for the under to cash with ease.
Play: Under 7.5
Milwaukee Brewers +115 at Cincinnati Reds -125 Total: 8.5
It doesn’t seem to matter how good Sonny Gray is in his starts, the Reds offense gives him no run support and that will happen again in this game. Look for the Brewers to score just enough to win this game. Back the Brewers ML
Play: Brewers ML
Washington Nationals +175 at Tampa Bay Rays -200 Total: 7.5
The Rays are 7-3 in their last ten games and they are going to have no issue getting the job done in this game. Jon Lester hasn’t been a great signing for the Nationals and the offense isn’t going to give him any run support. Back the Rays on the run line.
Play: Rays -1.5
Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox won another game on Monday and they are going to open up this series on the right foot. Martin Perez has been strong as of late winning each of his last four games and he is going to get run support in this game.
Play: Red Sox ML
San Francisco Giants -139 at Texas Rangers +116 Total: 8.5
The Giants offense has confidence heading into this game, and the Rangers have only one win in their last ten games. The Giants are going to get another good start out of Alex Wood and that will lead to the Giants winning on the run line.
Play: Giants -1.5
Toronto Blue Jays +120 at Chicago White Sox -140 Total: 8.5
This is my least favorite game on the board. Robbie Ray has pitched better this season and Carlos Rodon has been inconsistent. I am going to bank on this being one of Rodon’s bad starts and the Blue Jays will get the job done as underdogs.
Play Blue Jays ML +120
New York Yankees -115 at Minnesota Twins -105 Total: 8.5
I haven’t trusted the Twins a whole lot this season and there is no reason for that to change in this game. Michael Pineda didn’t look great in his last start and he is going to get chased early in this game. Back the Yankees at a nice price.
Play: Yankees ML
Cleveland Indians -177 at St. Louis Cardinals +148 Total: 7.5
This is one of the best plays on the board. The Cardinals have not been playing as well as of late, and now they send out Carlos Martinez to the mound and he has been awful as of late. The Indians are going to take advantage with their offense and win on the run line.
Play: Cardinals -1.5
Kansas City Royals +120 at Los Angeles Angels -140 Total: 9
I would like this game more if the Royals were close to +140 or +150 but at this price, they still have some value. The Royals have success against left-handed pitchers, and this is a game where they can give Kris Bubic some run support. Back the Royals ML +120
Play: Royals ML
Arizona Diamondbacks at Oakland Athletics
The Athletics are way too big of a favorite in this game for something I feel comfortable betting, but there is no other way to attack this game. The Diamondbacks only have two wins in their last ten games, and their pitching has been the issue. The A’s are going to find the offensive success.
Play: A’s -1.5
Chicago Cubs +139 at San Diego Padres -167
Dinelson Lamet’s last start was against the Cubs and he shut them down, something that is going to happen again in this game. The Cubs are going to have all kinds of issues scoring in this game and the Padres will come out on top.
Play: Padres ML
