It’s another great day for baseball betting! Here, we’re taking a look and betting on the MLB playoff games on Saturday’s schedule.
Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies – 2:07 PM ET
Our first game of the day is between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. Currently, the Atlanta Braves are down 2-1 in this series and face elimination. On the mound for the Braves tonight is Charlie Morton, one of their best pitchers. Through the regular season, Morton went 9-6 but finished with an ERA of 4.34.
The Philadelphia Phillies need one more win to advance and eliminate the Braves. Getting the start for them tonight is Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard has a 10-10 record with a 3.94 ERA this season. With both pitchers being fairly evenly matched, this game will come down to batting. Because of this, we’ll take the Braves over the Phillies at -125.
Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners – 4:07 PM ET
Houston leads their series against the Seattle Mariners 2-0. One more game and they’ll advance to the next round of the postseason. Lance McCullers Jr., who has a record of 4-2, boasts an ERA of 2.27. McCullers gives the Astros a great chance to win but they’ll need help from their batters too.
The Seattle Mariners have a team batting average of .230, which is part of the problem. They lost the last game 4-2 and the game prior to that 8-7. There’s a lot on the line tonight and we think that with George Kirby on the mound, they can win. Look for the Mariners to earn their first win of the series tonight at -110.
New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Guardians – 7:37 PM ET
The New York Yankees are tied at 1-1 with the Cleveland Guardians. As they head into this game, the Yankees will send out Luis Severino. Severino put together a 7-3 record with a 3.18 ERA during the regular season. As a team, however, they have a batting average of .241, which is far below the Guardians.
The Cleveland Guardians are sending Triston McKenzie out to the mound today. McKenzie has an 11-11 record this season with a 2.96 ERA. As a team, they have an impressive .254 batting average. That being said, we’ll go with the Guardians at +100 to pull off a win at home over the Yankees.
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres – 9:21 PM ET
The final game of the day is likely a shocker to some as the Dodgers are down 2-1. This series has been an entertaining one but the Dodgers are facing elimination. Tyler Anderson, who went 15-5 through the regular season, will take the mound tonight. The Dodgers have only lost by narrow margins so their batters need to step it up.
The San Diego Padres will send out Joe Musgrove, one of their best pitchers. Musgrove went 10-7 with an ERA of 2.93 during the regular season. Although the Dodgers have a .257 batting average, the Padres have shut them down. Still, we don’t see the Dodgers being eliminated today, we’ll take them -125.
