Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday, July 18th, 2014.

LA Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals

The Dodgers had a very good first half of the season, while the St. Louis Cardinals had difficulties dealing with the upstart Milwaukee Brewers. The second half of the season starts now and the Cardinals realize an opening series win against the Dodgers would go a long way. The Cardinals are 8-2 in their last 10 home games with the total set at 6.5 or lower and 20-8 in their last 28 games as a home underdog. The Cards are one of the best teams in the league and they will be ready to go after the break. The line tells the story.

Milwaukee Brewers at Washington Nationals

The Milwaukee Brewers spent the first half of the season surprising the MLB by taking control of their division and looking like a real contender. They start the second half of the season going up against the Washington Nationals and one of the best pitchers in the league in Gio Gonzalez. This is a pure value spot where you can get Matt Garza as an underdog which rarely happens and although no one believes in Milwaukee they are for real. The Brewers are 4-1 in Garzas last 5 starts following a team loss in their previous game and the Nationals are 0-4 in Roarks last 4 starts when going up against the National League Central.

Cincinnati Reds at New York Yankees

The New York Yankees are a very popular team with baseball bettors but don’t look past the Reds. They have had injury issues, but they are still one of the best teams in baseball. Anytime you get a chance to get a team like this at underdog money you should bet on it. The Reds are 6-1 in their last 7 games as an underdog and the Reds are 7-2 in their last 9 overall. On’t miss this value, instead bet the Reds to beat the pinstripes.
