We browse the early odds board in search of betting value on Saturday's card. Read on and find two MLB picks that will maximize your profits before the Crawford vs. Indongo fight.

Diamondbacks vs. Twins 

Right-hander Zack Greinke (14-5, 3.01 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) takes the hill for the Diamondbacks after a dominant performance against the Astros last Monday, when he threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings, conceding five hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in a 2-0 win. Greinke has an impressive 10.1 strikeout-to-walk ratio (K/9) this season and he ranks second in the American League with 14 wins, third with 174 strikeouts and a 1.03 WHIP and fourth with a 3.01 ERA and 155 2/3 innings pitched.

Jose Berrios (10-5, 4.27 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) will get the ball for the Twins, looking to get back on track after one of his worst starts of the season last Saturday, when he allowed six earned runs on six hits (one home run) with two walks and no strikeouts in just 3 1/3 innings to get a no-decision in a 12-11 loss against the Tigers. Berrios has an awful 12.22 ERA over his last two starts so I'm backing Greinke and the Diamodbacks at -140 MLB odds.

Marlins vs. Mets

Vance Worley (2-2, 4.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) will start for the Marlins after giving up three earned runs on eight hits with two walks and one strikeout in just four innings to get a no-decision in a 5-3 win against the Rockies last Sunday. Worley has won his last two decisions but he has a 4.24 ERA in five road appearances (three starts). 

Rafael Montero (1-8, 5.80 ERA, 1.75 WHIP) will make his 25th appearance (11th start) for the Mets, looking for his first win since June 25. Montero pitched well on Monday though, allowing just two earned runs on five hits (one home run) with two walks and six strikeouts in six innings to get a no-decision in a 4-2 loss against the Yankees. The right-hander has lost his last four decisions and he's 0-7 with a 6.53 ERA in 13 home appearances (six starts). I'm going Over 9.5 (-114) with my MLB picks here.
