Our MLB handicapping professional has gone an outstanding 27-17 (61%) with his last 44 underdog picks. Go inside to find out what teams he’s opted to go with on Saturday.

Rockies (Chatwood) vs. Marlins (Chen) 4:10 PM ET
Like many pitchers have encountered over the years, Tyler Chatwood has struggled at Coors Field in 2016. However, he’s been nothing short of dominant on the road. Chatwood is a perfect 6-0 during his team starts in away games with a microscopic 0.65 ERA.

Colorado is 6-0 this season in day games when Chatwood is their starting pitcher, and his 1.76 ERA during those outings is a major contributor as to why. Despite losing the series opener last night, Colorado is a stellar 8-3 over its last eleven games.

Miami will go with Wei-Yen Chen on the mound this afternoon. Chen has allowed 17 home runs in 15 starts this season. That’s certainly not good news for Miami, and especially so against a Colorado team which has gone 18-7 (.720) since 2015 versus starting pitchers allowing 1 or more home runs per start. Chen has posted a lofty 5.71 ERA during his previous three starts, and allowed a whopping 7 home runs in 17 1/3 innings of work.

Miami is a dismal 6-14 (.300) during days games this year, and Colorado is a very good 15-9 (.625) in its matinee affairs. The underdog value in this matchup is plentiful, and one of my Saturday MLB Picks will indicate just that.

Brewers (Anderson) vs. Dodgers (Bolsinger) 10:10 PM ET
Chase Anderson has displayed terrific form during his previous four starts, compiling a 2.42 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in those outings. Anderson has made four career starts at Dodger Stadium, all have came since 2014, and he posted an impressive 1.96 ERA and 0.78 WHIP.

Mike Bolsinger is 0-3 in his last three starts with a sizable 6.60 ERA. The Dodgers right-hander has made three career starts versus Milwaukee, each of those took place since 2014, and he had a somewhat lofty 4.76 ERA during those appearances. The Dodgers have been brutal in terms of offensive production at home in 2016, evidenced by a horrible .217 team batting average, and paltry .632 OPS.
