Every team is in action on Saturday across the MLB which means there are plenty of solid MLB picks to make you money. Let’s take a look at a free MLB pick on each of the games to make your Saturday a winning one.
Oakland Athletics +105 at New York Yankees -125 Total: 9
The one thing the Athletics know they are getting with Chris Bassitt is a guy who isn’t going to blow up games for them. Although he usually gives up a few runs, he hasn't allowed more than four runs this season. Bassitt is going to have a strong game, and the A’s will give him enough run support. Back the Athletics.
Play: Oakland ML
New York Mets at Washington Nationals
Runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. David Peterson is coming off a strong start, and Joe Ross has been someone who has been counted on this season. Look for both teams to struggle to score, especially the Mets, and the under is going to score.
Philadelphia Phillies -105 at San Francisco Giants -105 Total: 7.5
The Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants have both played well the last couple of weeks. These two teams are very similar but the Giants do have an advantage on the mound. Alex Wood sits with a 6-3 record and he has gotten strong run support. Back the Giants at a nice price to get the job done.
Play: Giants ML
Miami Marlins +101 at Chicago Cubs -121 Total:: 9
The Marlins shouldn’t be the underdog, even if they are the visiting team in this game. Jake Arrieta gets the start for the Cubs and he hasn’t had a win in each of his last five starts. Pablo Lopez won’t need much run support, as the Marlins will win this game.
Play: Marlins ML
Toronto Blue Jays -177 at Baltimore Orioles +148 Total: 10
Dean Kramer shouldn’t even be in the major leagues anymore, but the Orioles really don’t have anywhere else to turn. Kramer sits with an ERA of 6,05 and the Blue Jays offense is going to take advantage. Back the Blue Jays to win this game on the run line.
Play: Blue Jays -1.5
Minnesota Twins at Texas Rangers
The Minnesota Twins pitching staff has been an issue this season, and in this game, it’s going to let them down again. Randy Dobnak sits with an ERA of 8.38 and the Rangers are going to run up the score in this game. The Rangers are going to win this game by at least two runs and betting -2.5 is even worth a look.
Play: Rangers -1.5
Boston Red Sox -125 at Kansas City Royals +115 Total: 11
The Boston Red Sox have plenty of players who can hit the long ball, and that’s what Kris Bubic has struggled with the last few starts. In this game, the Red Sox will run up the score, and win this game on the run line.
Play: Red Sox -1.5
Cleveland Indians -142 at Pittsburgh Pirates +118 Total: 9
This is a game that is going to feature a lot of bullpen work by both teams. Wil Crowe doesn’t usually go deep in games, but even in short starts, he struggles to keep batters off the basepaths. Cal Quantrill is working on short rest, and he also shouldn’t go deep in this game. I don’t really trust either team in this matchup, but the Pirates offer the value as the underdogs.
Play: Pirates ML
Cincinnati Reds +155 at San Diego Padres -190 Total: 8.5
The Reds shouldn’t be this big of underdogs in this game. Vladimir Gutierrez sits with a 3-1 record and an ERA of 2.74. I don’t trust the Padres offense as they have struggled, and the Reds are going to take advantage. Back the Reds.
Play: Reds ML
New York Mets at Washington Nationals
Jon Lester still doesn’t have a win this year, but that is going to change in this game against the New York Mets. Lester has a 7-1 career record and an ERA of 3,20 against the Mets. The Mets bats are going to be cold again in this game, and Washington will come away with the victory.
Play: Washington ML
St. Louis Cardinals +100 at Atlanta Braves -120 Total: 9.5
The Braves offense was hot on Friday, and the bats aren’t going to cool down in this game. Drew Smyly is coming off a strong start for the Braves, and that will be the difference as the home team wins this one on the run line.
Play: Braves -1.5
Chicago White Sox +108 at Houston Astros -128 Total: 8
Both of these offenses are good, but this game is going to be all about the pitching staff. Lance Lynn is coming off a loss, but he is still one of the best pitchers in the American League. Framber Valdez currently sits with a 1.42 ERA, and he will shut down the White Sox.
Detroit Tigers +168 at Los Angeles Angels -201 Total: 9.5
There are plenty of better games across the board, but if you want to bet this game, take the value with the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers have been a surprise so far this season. Wily Peralta gets the start for the Tigers and he has been strong in the minors this season. Look for the Tigers to win at plus money.
Play Tigers ML
Milwaukee Brewers -120 at Colorado Rockies +110 Total: 10.5
This game is at Coors Field, but both teams are going to struggle to score in this one. Adrian Houser sits with an ERA of 1.71 over his last four games. Austin Gomber also sits with an ERA of 3.54. In this game, both offenses are going to struggle and the under is going to cash.
Tampa Bay Rays -132 at Seattle Mariners +110 Total: 8
Logan Gilbert looks like he is going to be a strong MLB pitcher, and he is coming off his best start. Over the last ten games, the Mariners sit with a 5-5 record, and Gilbert is going to lock down the Rays. Back the Mariners to win this game on the money line.
Play: Mariners ML +110
Los Angeles Dodgers -208 at Arizona Diamondbacks +189 Total: 9
The Diamondbacks are the worst team in all of baseball, and there is no reason to believe they are going to be competitive in this game. The Dodgers offense is going to run up the score, against Matt Peacock and this game is going to be over early. Back the Dodgers on the run line.
P,lay: Dodgers -1.5
