Mining the Diamond did the splits yesterday but we are back with our MLB picks for Saturday's baseball betting slate. Let's take a look at which two teams will cash today!

Brewers (78-69, +17.8 Units) at Marlins (68-79, -9.4 Units)

* Miami is 2-12 (-12.2 Units) in September games this season.

* Miami is 50-59 (-20.1 Units) in home games in night games over the last two seasons.

* Miami is 26-39 (-14.7 Units) when the total is 9 to 9.5 this season.

* Milwaukee is 46-33 (+23.4 Units) against left-handed starters over the last two seasons.

* Milwaukee is 50-43 (+12.7 Units) in night games this season.

* Milwaukee is 41-35 (+11.5 Units) after a win this season.

One team is surging while the other is plummeting. Milwaukee has won six of their last seven while the Fish are freefalling into baseball oblivion having lost 11 of their last 12 games. The Brewers' starter Zach Davies takes a 2-1 record over his last three complemented by a 1.83 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. Conversely, Miami's starter Adam Conley is 0-2 with a 5.52 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP over his last three. In addition, Conley is 2-3 with a 7.52 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP in his home starts while Davies is 9-2 with a 2.23 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP on the road this season.

Don't overthink this one - just bet it! Back the Brew Crew in your MLB picks tonight.

Diamondbacks (86-62, +19.6 Units) at Giants (57-92, -38.9 Units)

* San Francisco is 22-41 (-20.4 Units) against division opponents this season.

* San Francisco is  38-60 (-21.8 Units) in night games this season.

* San Francisco is 40-65 (-31.2 Units) against right-handed starters this season.

* Arizona is 7-0 (+8.7 Units) in September road games this season.

* Arizona is 53-32 (+18.2 Units) after a win this season.

* Arizona is  134-91 (+31.6 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record over the last three seasons.

There are so many positives for Arizona and so many negatives for San Francisco in this matchups that it's hard to keep track. The Snakes' starter Zack Greinke is 10-2 when starting against the Giants with an ERA of 2.56 and a WHIP of 1.12 and is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA and an absurd 0.80 WHIP over his last three starts. Compare that to San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner who is a respectable 9-9 when starting against the Diamondbacks with an ERA of 2.61 and a WHIP of 1.08 but is 0-3 with a 6.50 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP over his last three.

The MLB odds are just low enough on Arizona that we will gladly lay the lumber on the road and cash a ticket when the day is done. Back the Snakes on the highway tonight.
