Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday May 10, 2014.
Miami Marlins at San Diego Padres
The Miami Marlins are playing better than expected on the diamond as they have jumped into the race for first place in their division. However, on Saturday they get a tough matchup on the diamond as they take to the field on the west coast to take on the Padres. Of San Diego's 37 games this season, 25 have been decided by two runs or fewer, with the Padres winning 13. That shows that this team knows how to win the close games. The Marlins are 0-6 in their last 6 games as a road favorite and the Padres get the home win at a nice price.
Free Pick: San Diego Padres -103
New York Yankees at Milwaukee Brewers
The Bronx Bombers make a visit to Milwaukee to take on the Brewers and it is time to take a look at the total in this game. This game will have a very good pitching matchup featuring two pitchers that have the potential to toss a shutout on any given day. Kyle Lohse has posted five straight quality starts while striking out 30 and walking only five. The veteran yielded two runs in 6 1/3 innings at Cincinnati and is on a good run. The under is 36-16-1 in Yankees last 53 interleague games and the under is is 17-5-1 in Brewers last 23 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150. C.C. Sabathia, who looks nothing like the pitcher who put the Brewers on his shoulders six years ago, is coming off his worst start of the season and will be focused and ready to rebound in this game. Look for a low scoring game in this interleague affair.
Free Pick: New York Yankees at Milwaukee Brewers Under 8
Kansas City Royals vs. Seattle Mariners
Two of the most underrated teams this season have to be the Royals and the Mariners. Chris Young has recorded back-to-back victories, allowing three earned runs and six hits in 11 2/3 innings during the stretch. He has allowed four or fewer hits in four of his five starts after landing a rotation spot due to Seattle’s injury issues. He is a great pitcher to be getting as an underdog. The Mariners are 7-2 in their last 9 games as an underdog and 9-3 in the last 12 overall. Take the Mariners to get the win over the Royals.
Free Pick: Seattle Mariners +105
