MLB Picks and Predictions:
Johnny Kent’s Saturday, July 23rd sports betting preview. My first Saturday Free MLB pick being released is going in this Chicago Cubs Philadelphia Phillies game. This matchup starts at 6:05pm et at the Citizens Bank Park in Philly. The DraftKings MLB Odds have Philadelphia as a -155 favorite with the over/under at 8.5 total runs.
The Cubs will have Marcus Stroman take the mound. In 11 starts this season, Stroman has a 2-5 record with a 4.69 ERA. In his 10 career starts against the Phillies, Stroman has a 4-4 record with an 2.62 ERA.
On the other side of the field, the Phillies will have Zach Wheeler get the start. In 17 matchups this season, Wheeler is 8-5 overall with a 2.89 ERA and 108 strikeouts. In 6 career starts against the Cubs, Wheeler is 2-2 record overall with a 4.54 ERA.
For this Cubs vs Phillies Saturday game, I’m rolling with the Phillies Team Total to go over the 4 runs (-125).
Now, let’s talk about this Padres vs Mets Saturday game that’s set to start at 7:10pm at Citi Field in New York. The MLB betting lines have the Mets as a -150 favorite with the over/under at 7.5 total runs.
San Diego will have Blake Snell get the start. Snell has a 1-5 record with a 5.22 ERA of 5.22 and 66 strikeouts in 10 appearances this season. In Snell’s 5 career games against the Mets, he’s 2-3 overall with a 3.21 ERA.
New York will have Chris Bassett take the mound who has a 7-6 record with a 3.76 ERA so far this season.
Bassitt has faced the Padres twice in his career and currently has an 0-1 record, with a terrible 10.13 ERA, so it’s going to be interesting to see if he can bounce back after that rough initial start against the Padres.
For this Padres vs Mets Saturday game, I’m rolling with the Mets (-145).
