We browse the early MLB odds board in search of betting value on Saturday's card. Read on and find two picks that will maximize your profits while you enjoy incredible college football games.

Athletics vs. Mariners

Right-hander Jharel Cotton (7-10, 5.40 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) takes the hill for the Athletics, trying to win his third straight start. Cotton pitched well against the Rangers last Sunday, giving up just two runs (one earned) on four hits (one home run) with zero walks and nine strikeouts over six innings of an 8-3 victory and now he's surrendered just three earned runs over his last 12 2/3 innings of work. 

Yovani Gallardo (5-10, 5.78 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) starts for the Mariners looking to avoid losing his fourth straight start. Gallardo allowed four earned runs on four hits (one home run) with five walks and four strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings of a 6-3 loss against the Yankees last Sunday to fall to 0-3 with a 7.46 ERA over his last five starts. The Mariners are the better team and they have a lot to play for but I'm taking the A's  at +127 MLB odds because Cotton has momentum on his side. 

Free MLB Pick: Athletics +127

Dodgers vs. Padres

Yu Darvish (8-10, 3.88 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) will start for the Dodgers after suffering his first loss with them last Sunday, when he gave up three earned runs on six hits (one home run) with three walks and seven strikeouts in five innings of a 3-2 setback against the Brewers. Darvish is 2-1 with a 3.13 ERA in four starts with the Dodgers and Wil Myers is just 1-for-7 against him.

Jhoulys Chacin (11-10, 4.03 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) will make his 28th start of the season, hoping to avoid losing his fourth straight decision. Chacin did pitch well against the Giants on Monday, allowing just one earned run on two hits (one home run) with four walks and three strikeouts in five innings of a 3-0 loss, falling to 1-3 with a 3.31 ERA over his last six starts. The current Dodgers lineup is hitting .304 against him, with Cody Bellinger going 3-for-7 with a home run. I like the Dodgers for my MLB picks here.
