Until the football season kicks off, more specifically the college football season, Saturday will belong to Major League Baseball. For the avid baseball bettor, this is the day to sit back and take a break from the day to day grind of work and to focus on betting on baseball. With early games that start around noon, the baseball bettor will have action all day long. The buzz word that all gamblers like to use when betting on baseball is value. The problem is trying to find it, but we have found three games loaded with value for Saturday afternoon.
Make sure to check back on a regular basis as we will post our MLB Picks of the Day!
Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday, June 28th, 2014.
Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies
The value in this game is with the home team. The Phillies are not the best team this season and Roberto Hernandez has had a decent season. The Braves are 5-12 in their last 17 road games when they face a team with a losing record and 2-5 in the last seven games when they go up against a team in the National League East. Hernandez is 2-1 in his last three starts and will be ready to get the big win against the Braves in this Saturday afternoon tilt.
Free MLB Pick: Philadelphia Phillies +111
St. Louis Cardinals at LA Dodgers
The St. Louis Cardinals take on the LA Dodgers as two of the best teams in the National League will face off. Although the Dodgers have the better pitcher on the hill with Zack Greinke the value lays in the red birds with the big price tag. Lance Lynn is going for the Cardinals and he is no slouch as the Cards do well when he hits the mound. The Cardinals are 17-5 in Lynns last 22 starts during game 3 of a series and 7-3 in Lynns last 10 road starts. The Dodgers are 1-4 in Greinkes last 5 starts and the Cardinals are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games with Mike Everitt behind home plate and the Cards win big as an underdog.

Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees
The Red Sox and the Yankees have a heated rivalry so betting on the under in this series always will have some value. It gets even better with value when the Red Sox have Jon Lester on the mound. He is 2-0 in his last three starts with an ERA of just 1.66. He is also 2-1 in his last three starts against the pinstripes. The Red Sox are 5-1 in Lesters last 6 starts as an underdog and they get a win in game two of this series.
