Breaking Down the Matchups | MLB Predictions

Diamondbacks vs Phillies

Kyle Gibson is set to make his 6th start for Philly. The Phillies have won ⅗ of his starts since joining the team at the trade deadline.

Gibson is able to roll through the Dbacks spotty lineup and get the Phillies back on track. Take them on the run line at -1.5 at home.

USA Wager Prediction: Phillies -1.5 (+105)

Reds vs Marlins

Normally we are taking the Reds on the run line without giving it a second thought, but the Marlins have Sandy Alcantara on the bump on Saturday.

Alcantara has been phenomenal in his last 3 starts and will continue his run at home tonight. Take Miami on the moneyline at -110 odds at DraftKings.

USA Wager Prediction: Marlins ML (-110)

Blue Jays vs Tigers

Alek Manoah has become one of the best rookie pitchers in the game this season. He has a 3.18 ERA with a 138 ERA+.

Manoah is facing an abysmal Tigers lineup with Jose Urena on the mound. Expect Manoah to look good and go deep. Take the Jays -1.5.

USA Wager Prediction: Blue Jays -1.5 (-125)

Cardinals vs Pirates

Another game that we would normally stay away from, but there is one attraction here. Adam Wainwright is on the bump for STL.

The 40-year-old veteran has dominated in 2021. Only Zack Wheeler has more innings pitched this season than Waino. Not bad for a guy in his 17th MLB season.

Wainwright will go deep again in this one and should dominate a bad Pirates lineup. The Cards only need to put a couple of runs on the board to get the job done. Take them at -1.5 on the run line.

USA Wager Prediction: Cardinals -1.5 (-115)

Padres vs Angels

Ryan Weathers is on the mound for the Padres. Jose Suarez is on the mound for the Angels. Neither starter has had a very good season, so we are going with the better offense in this one.

The padres can put runs up in droves against bad pitching, and they will do so on Saturday night. Take San Diego at -1.5 on the run line and get great odds at +125.

USA Wager Prediction: Padres -1.5 (+125)
