Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday May 31, 2014.
Cincinnati Reds at Arizona Diamondbacks
Often finding the right game on the schedule will include finding the best value in the latest lines posted on the starting pitchers. Johnny Cueto goes for the Reds and he has been the ace for this team this season. He has a WHIP of just .082 on the season and the Reds have won six of his last seven starts against Arizona. The Reds are 8-2 in Cuetos last 10 starts when he takes the mound against the National League West and 41-15 in Cuetos last 56 starts as a favorite. The Diamondbacks are 3-12 in their last 15 games as a home underdog and they will struggle to score runs as they lose this game on Saturday.

Texas Rangers at Washington Nationals
If you read this pick article on a regular basis you realize that I think the Texas Rangers are overrated. They have a decent offense but the pitching is lackluster at best. Doug Fister goes for the Nationals and he has been a God send for this team as one of the best starters on the hill. Fister is 2-0 in his last two starts with the Nationals winning all three of his last starts. With an ERS below two and an average of six runs per game in support, Fister is on a serious role. I usually don’t suggest this high of a chalk, but it is the right side in this game.
Free MLB Pick: Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins Over 9 -105
Colorado Rockies at Cleveland Indians
The Rockies are a vastly underrated team. The Indians are 0-4 in their last 4 interleague games and the Rockies are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The Rockies have the edge in the pitching matchup and they are a value pick at an underdog against a team that they are clearly better than. Take the Rockies to get the win.
