Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday April 26, 2014.
Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays
The defending champions are off to a difficult start to the season and their big problem has been on offense. Their bats have gone silent and the starting pitchers are not getting any run support. Because of this the Red Sox have been a good fade for baseball bettors. The best part of betting against the Red Sox is that the odds makers are still overvaluing this team. The Red Sox are 0-4 in their last 4 road games when they go up against a right-handed starter and the Blue Jays are 4-1 in Morrows last 5 starts against the Red Sox. The Jays get a win at home against the Sos for Saturday afternoon.

Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals
When betting on baseball, it is no secret that the starting pitcher will move the line and they are a very important component to betting to win. One of the ways to make money is to look for value on a starting pitcher that you will not always get in certain situations. On Saturday the Pittsburgh Pirates are in that situation. Francisco Liriano is a very good pitcher and the ace of this pitching staff but since this game is in St. Louis, the odds are in his favor. The Pirates are 6-2 in Lirianos last 8 starts when they play against a team with a winning record and 7-2 in their last 9 games when they go up against a left-handed starter. The Pirates are 4-1 in Lirianos last 5 starts against the Cardinals and that makes this play loaded with value.

Detroit Tigers at Minnesota Twins
The last pick of the article is always reserved for a big underdog and today is no different. The Twins have been playing some good baseball of late. In fact if you bet on the Twins in every game this season you would be up +458 units on the season. The Twins are just one game behind the Tigers in the series making this a huge series. The Twins have returned home after winning two of the last three games and are poised to do well against the Tigers. The Tigers are 2-5 in their last 7 against a team with a winning record and just 2-5 on the road this season. The Twins are a live underdog and worth a shot in this game.
