On the surface, it makes sense that only 33 percent of the public are backing the Blue Jays. Marcus Storman is winless at 0-5 with an embarrassing 7.71 ERA. Despite his early struggles, Stroman has dominated the Angels as of late. Last April, he pitched a complete game while allowing one earned run against the Halos. Since they're a healthy underdog on Saturday, I have no problem laying close to even money with the run line.
6-2 IN LAST 8 MLB ATS PICKS | +307
We are siding with the Over in the most ideal situation for both clubs on Saturday. The total is set at 6.5 for several reasons: two of baseball's best starters will be on the mound in Clayton Kershaw and Jacob deGrom and the Under has cashed in eight straight Dodgers games. influencing the deflated total is that the Under has hit in the previous five Mets' home games. Kershaw is fresh off the DL, so don't expect to see him for more than five innings. DeGrom is due for regression as he's on pace for the lowest ERA in Mets history. On top of that, the wind is blowing out to center at 10 mph. Let's hope for a 3-3, stress-free game, so we can turn off the TV early.
2-1 IN LAST 3 N.Y. METS O/U PICKS | +91
On Friday, the Cubs and Reds barely shot over 8.5 runs. Saturday, expect both sides to hit better at an earlier start time. The Cubs should be able to take advantage of Anthony DeSclafani, who remains susceptible to allowing many runs, and an untrustworthy Chicago bullpen. Grab the Over.

3-0 IN LAST 3 CINCINNATI O/U PICKS | +300
Sonny Gray has stayed Under the total in his last four starts, which is in line with the entire Yankees' rotation and bullpen. They've stayed Under in 16 of their last 17 games. Wilmer Font has done a good job in his three starts for the Rays, in which he pitches for only about four innings. All three of his starts stayed Under, and the Rays have remained Under in nine of their last 10. You get the gist, Under again.

The Mets' bats, which were frightfully silent for a good three-week period, finally began to boom in the final half of their recent 10-game road trip. Unfortunately, their pitching couldn't keep up, dropping the Amazin's to 10 games below .500. On Saturday, it's a great matchup of Clayton Kershaw vs. Jacob deGrom. While both starters are projected to have excellent outings, Kershaw gets the better of deGrom as the Mets' bats are muffled yet again. The simulations reveal the Dodgers winning this contest 67 percent of the time by nearly a run and a half. Back the underdog Dodgers.
