Our MLB consultant has two MLB picks on Saturday which possess money line underdog prices. Go inside to read this conclusive betting article that unerringly specifies why he’s opting for these MLB bets.

Royals (Duffy) vs Red Sox (Price) 7:10 PM ET
Kansas City is showing why they've been the American League champions in each of the last two seasons, and won a world title last year. After seemingly being dead in the water just a few weeks ago, Kansas City is 16-3 over its last nineteen, and 11-1 during their previous twelve games. As a result of that torrid run, they've gone from being 10.0 games back in the AL wild-card race, and now trail Baltimore by just 3.0 for that final playoff berth.

Speaking of being hot, Saturday's Kansas City starting pitcher Daniel Duffy is 11-0 during his last eleven team starts. Duffy has been especially sharp over his previous five starts, evidenced by a minuscule 1.18 ERA and 0.82 WHIP through that course of time.

By virtue of last night's loss to Kansas City, the Red Sox have now dropped three straight. David Price has exhibited very good form over his last three starts. However, since 5/8/2015, Price made four starts against Kansas City and had a somewhat lofty 4.67 ERA during those outings. Additionally, Price has been shaky in each of his last two starts at Fenway Park while facing Minnesota (49-79) and Arizona (54-75), proven by a sizable 5.27 ERA in addition to a hefty 1.76 WHIP.

Considering all aforementioned data, there's ample betting value on the money line underdog, and I'll be making them one of my Saturday MLB picks.

Rays (Snell) vs Astros (Keuchel) 7:10 PM ET
Although his ERA through his last three starts doesn't indicate it, Tampa Bay's Blake Snell has displayed less than stellar form through that period of time. Snell's control issues have been rather obvious during that trio of appearances, verified by him walking 13 in only 10 1/3 innings pitched. Furthermore, Tampa Bay has gone an abysmal 6-20 over its preceding twenty-six away games.

After a disappointing first half of the year, Dallas Keuchel is beginning to show flashes of his 2015 CY Young Award winning season. Keuchel has compiled a superb 0.82 WHIP for the period of his last three starts. Houston has won six of its last seven overall while averaged 6.6 runs scored per game, smacking 14 homers, and collecting a very impressive .859 OPS. Their bullpen has been lights out over that identical seven-game stretch, demonstrated by an excellent 0.97 WHIP as a staff.

I like Houston to win this game by a convincing margin. As a result, I'll be searching for the best MLB betting odds pertaining to a run line wager.
