Some Saturday MLB Helpful Information

Three Starters with 'OVER' Value on the Hill Saturday

Saturday's MLB schedule features three starters on the board that could be worth a look for over wagers. Why? Because their teams provide them with some of the best run support in the bigs.

Clay Buchholz, Boston Red Sox, (6-0, 1.60 ERA)

Buchholz is coming off the least impressive outing of his otherwise unblemished 2013 season. The Texan lasted six innings giving up four earned runs and seven hits versus the Minnesota Twins. His last two starts have gone over the number and the Sox supply the righty with an outstanding six runs of support per game.

Boston hosts the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday. The Red Sox defeated the Jays 10-1 with Buchholz on the mound on May 1.

Jonathon Niese, New York Mets (2-3, 4.66 ERA)

The Mets lefty has been a great over wager this season. He goes into Saturday's start with a 6-1 over/under record. Any $100 bettor would be up $539.02 if they had taken the over on each of Niese's starts this season. His 4.66 ERA, plus the fact that the Mets give him 6.29 runs per start, makes him a solid play on the over.

Niese and the Mets are home to face the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday. He was excellent in his lone start versus the Bucs in 2012, notching the victory with one earned run in 7 2/3 innings of work.

Yu Darvish, Texas Rangers, (5-1, 2.56 ERA)

Darvish gets the second-most run support in the American League with 6.71 runs per game. Two of his previous three starts have gone over the number and he is coming off a deep, 127-pitch effort versus the Red Sox on May 5.

The Rangers continue their series versus the Houston Astros Saturday. Darvish opened the season with a 7-0 victory versus Houston on April 2. He pitched 8 2/3 innings of one-hit ball.

Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Allen Eastman

Take Seattle over Oakland (10 p.m., Saturday, May 11)

I am going with the visitors in this game. We should be able to get a nice underdog price on the Mariners, and I think that they will come through for me once again. The Mariners will be going with young Brandon Maurer in this game. The kid got off to a rocky start this year. But before his last start he has earned three straight quality starts against the Angels and Rangers. Maurer has a score to settle with the A's. They knocked him around for six runs in six innings in his MLB debut back on April 4. He is going to make adjustments. This series is in Seattle, and this is the final series of a long road trip for the A's. They played in New York and Cleveland and now they will be tired when they take on a division rival this weekend. Seattle has a day off on Friday. They will be well-rested and will take advantage. Go with the home team here. I think the line will be somewhere between Seattle (+110) and! Seattle (-115). Play the small number either way.

Free Pick on Kansas City Royals

The Kansas City Royals have quietly compiled an 18-13 record on the season so it is no surprise to see them favored on their home field today. The Yankees have been playing poorly over their past 7 games averaging just 2.7 runs per game. They have a .216 batting average and .278 on base percentage over that same span.

The Royals on the other hand have a .270 batting average over the past 7 games. Kansas City has won five of their last eight games and they have a very favorable advantage when facing a struggling Andy Pettitte. Pettitte is 0-2 in his last three starts with a 7.05 ERA. For Kansas City James Shields will take the mound. Shields has a 1.96 ERA in his last 3 starts so it is safe to say Kansas City is the hot team from every angle coming into this game.
