We browse the early odds board in search of MLB betting value on Saturday's card. Read on for two selections to maximize your profits while the Stanley Cup Final and the NBA Finals start.

Rangers vs. Blue Jays

Yu Darvish will take the hill for the Rangers after allowing two earned runs on five hits and four walks with seven strikeouts in five innings of a 5-2 win over the Tigers last Sunday. Darvish has given up three earned runs or less in nine of his 10 starts this season and he's 2-1 with a 2.59 ERA in four road starts. 

The Blue Jays will go with Marco Estrada (3-2, 3.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP in 10 starts), who threw 7 2/3 innings and gave up one earned run on five hits and one walk while matching his career-high with 12 strikeouts in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Orioles. Estrada is third in the American League with 70 strikeouts and he's 1-0 with a 2.52 ERA in four home starts. Look for a low-scoring game between two solid starters, even with both teams being capable of putting up plenty of runs. I'm taking 'Under' 8.5 at -113 MLB odds.

Free MLB Pick: Under 8.5 (-113)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

Tigers vs. White Sox

Right-hander Buck Farmer will make his first start of the season for the Tigers. This will be Farmer's second stint with the team in a week, last Friday he was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to serve as bullpen insurance but he was sent back down after the game. Farmer posted a 4.12 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP in nine starts with Toledo this season, with 54 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings and he's 0-5 with a 9.68 ERA in nine major league starts.

Derek Holland will get the ball for the White Sox, he is now 4-3 with a 2.47 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP after throwing eight innings of one-run ball against the Mariners last Sunday, striking out six while issuing just two walks. Holland has a 3.18 ERA in three home starts and he's sixth in the American League with a 2.47 ERA, which is why I like the White Sox at home with the better pitcher on the mound as one of my MLB picks.

Free MLB Pick: White Sox +128
