Mining the Diamond is 3-1 over its last four MLB picks including cashing in on last night’s big underdog, the Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees. Let’s see what’s in store for Saturday baseball betting action. 

<p><a href=""><strong>Phillies (51-83, -18.8 Units) at Marlins (66-68, +1.2 Units)</strong></a></p><ul> <li>Miami is 24-13 (+11.9 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record in the second half of the season this season.</li> <li>Miami is 27-25 (+3.4 Units) when the total is 8 to 8.5 this season.</li> <li>Miami is 41-36 (+4.2 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record this season.</li> <li>Philadelphia is 32-64 (-26.2 Units) against right-handed starters this season.</li> <li>Philadelphia is 28-57 (-21.9 Units) in night games this season.</li> <li>Philadelphia is 6-15 (-8.8 Units) on the road when the money line is +125 to -125 this season.</li></ul><p>The Phillies have taken the first two games from the Marlins in this four-game set but tonight will be different. The Marlins were edged by one run in both games but today we see a decided advantage for the home team as the Fish are sending Daniel Straily to the hill who is 3-1 when starting against the Phillies with an ERA of 3.18 and a WHIP of 1.54. In addition, Straily has these trends working in his favor.</p><ul> <li>Daniel Straily’s team record is 33-25 (+13.3 Units) in all games over the last two seasons.</li> <li>Daniel Straily’s team record is 20-10 (+11.7 Units) in home games over the last two seasons.</li> <li>Daniel Straily’s team record is 17-8 (+11.0 Units) against division opponents over the last two seasons.</li></ul><p>Conversely, the Phillies’ starter today, Aaron Nola brings a 6.38 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP with a 1-2 record over his last three outings. The <a href="">MLB odds </a>are a bit low on the Marlins despite the team being a few games under .500 which is why we consider this not only a sharp play but good value to boot. Back Miami in your <a href="">MLB picks</a> tonight.</p><h2 style="text-align:center;"><strong>Free MLB Pick: Marlins -129</strong></h2><h2 style="text-align:center;"><strong>Best Line Offered: at BetOnline</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3140811, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,180,139,1275,238], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</strong></p><p> </p><h2><a href=""><strong>Red Sox (77-58, +3.8 units) at Yankees (71-63, -8.3 Units)</strong></a></h2><ul> <li>New York is 14-18 (-7.1 Units) when playing against a team with a winning record in the second half of the season.</li> <li>New York is 21-23 (-8.4 Units) in days games this season.</li> <li>New York is 20-20 (2.2 Units) against left-handed starters this season.</li> <li>Boston is 37-18 (+20.2 Units) in September games over the last three seasons.</li> <li>Boston is 41-31 (+4.1 Units) when playing against a team with a winning record this season.</li> <li>Boston is 5-2 (+6.1 Units) as a road underdog of +125 to +175 this season.</li></ul><p>Drew Pomeranz will take the ball for the Red Sox and is looking to continue his streak of impressive performances as he takes a team record of 3-0 and a 1.84 ERA over his last three starts into Yankee Stadium.  Pomeranz’s team has captured six wins over his eight career starts against New York and the Boston offense has to be buoyed by their 4-1 win over the Bombers last night. On the flipside, Masahiro Tanaka’s team record is 6-7 versus Boston and he has allowed a combined eight runs and 13 hits over his last two starts against his AL East rivals. Let’s go back to the well and cash with the Red Sox for the second consecutive day.</p><h2 style="text-align:center;"><strong>Free MLB Pick: Red Sox +125</strong></h2><h2 style="text-align:center;"><strong>Best Line Offered: at JustBet</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3139264, "sportsbooksIds":[1275,180,139,1096,238], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</strong></p>
