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 while you enjoy the college football games of the day.

Cubs vs. Brewers

Right-hander Kyle Hendricks (7-5, 3.22 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) takes the hill for the Cubs, coming off an impressive win against the Cardinals last Saturday, when he gave up one earned run on six hits (one home run) and one walk with five strikeouts across 7 2/3 innings in a 4-1 victory. Hendricks has held opponents to three or fewer earned runs over his last 11 starts and he has a 3.25 ERA in nine road starts.  

Brent Suter (3-2, 3.41 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) starts for the Brewers after the dominating the Pirates on Monday, when he threw five scoreless innings, surrendering just five hits and no walks with four strikeouts in a 3-0 win. Suter has a 4.32 ERA in three appearances (one start) against the Cubs this season and the current Chicago lineup is hitting .294 against him. Suter is pitching well of late but I like Hendricks and the Cubs at -137 MLB odds.

Royals vs. White Sox

Danny Duffy (8-9, 3.71 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) will start for the Royals, looking to get back on track from a tough loss against the Indians on Sunday, his first appearance since August 22 (knee injury). Duffy allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit (one home run) and no walks with eight strikeouts in five innings and he's 0-3 with an awful 9.56 ERA in three starts against the White Sox this season.   

Dylan Covey (0-6, 8.18 ERA, 1.80 WHIP) will make his 17th appearance (11th start) for the White Sox, still looking for his first win in the majors. Covey gave up five earned runs on seven hits and four walks with three strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings of a 12-0 loss against the Tigers last Sunday and he's just 0-2 with a 6.61 ERA in three starts against the Royals this season. I'm looking at Over 9.5 (-114) for my MLB picks because of the poor track record of Duffy and Covey against their respective opponents.
