Our MLB handicapping professional went 4-0 with his money line underdog picks last weekend. There are two more MLB Picks for this Saturday, so go inside and find out which ones they are.

Dodgers (Hill) vs Marlins (Koehler) 7:10 PM ET
The Dodgers southpaw Rich Hill has posted an excellent 1.94 ERA this year in 16 starts. Nevertheless, he can’t seem to stay healthy, and has been on the disabled list twice in 2016 due to ongoing blister issues to his throwing hand. Hill will be facing a Marlins team on Saturday that’s gone a superb 22-10 (.688) this season when facing southpaw starting pitchers.

The Dodgers are a terrific 47-27 at home this year. However, they’re an average at best 32-34 on the road. Los Angeles enters today having won 5 of its previous 7 games. That’s a noteworthy piece of data and let me tell you why. Los Angeles is a dismal 11-21 (.344) throughout this 2016 MLB campaign, following a stretch in which they won 5 or 6 of their preceding 7 games.

Current MLB betting odds at 5Dimes clearly provides me with the best price for this money line underdog wager. Hence, I’m going to take full advantage of that when making my Saturday MLB picks.

Free MLB Pick: Marlins +179

Orioles (Jimenez) vs Tigers (Zimmerman) 7:10 PM ET
Ubaldo Jimenez has struggled for the better part of this season. Nonetheless, that hasn’t been the case during his previous 3 starts. Through that period of time, Jimenez collected a stellar 2.91 ERA and brilliant 0.69 WHIP. The Orioles right-handed hurler is also coming off a complete game 3-hit win at Tampa Bay. Despite their 4-3 loss last night at Detroit, Baltimore is an extremely profitable 21-9 (.700) this year against AL Central teams.

Jordan Zimmerman will make just his third start since 6/30, and first since 8/4. It remains to be seen if the talented right-hander is fully recovered from a neck strain. That pain in the neck (no pun intended) has kept him sidelined for a better part of the last 11 weeks. Zimmerman has compiled an atrocious 13.49 ERA over his prior 3 starts, and it’s been clear he’s not been the same pitcher who went 5-0 with a 0.55 ERA in April.

The MLB money line board at Heritage is displaying Detroit as a -121 favorite. Since 2015, Detroit is a terrible 32-49 (.395) at home when they’re +125 to -125 on the money line. Speaking of Heritage, they’re on my short list of best sportsbooks to deal with.

Free MLB Pick: Orioles +115
Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes
