The weekend is here, and what better way to kick things off than with five free moneyline picks for today’s MLB action!

Look below to find our free MLB Picks for the five best games on today’s schedule!

Kansas City Royals @ Detroit Tigers – 1.10PM ET

This will be the second of a 4 game mini series between the Kansas City Royals and the Detroit Tigers. The first game was played on Friday, and Kansas City took home the win 6-2. The big question is, will the Tigers have the ability to bounce back, or will the Royals go 2 from 2 in this mini series?

The Kansas City Royals are playing really well as of late, mainly thanks to a solid team effort with a number of players pulling their weight. The Royals are coming off a 2-1 mini series loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, but they do currently have 2 wins on the trot. This mini series loss was actually their first this season, so the Royals will be fighting hard to ensure they don’t lose another.

Detroit isn’t having the best start to the season, but they are hoping that pitcher Matthew Boydcan help them get out of trouble. They have only had one win in the last eight games. They have lost a number of the mini series’ before this one against the Royals, and going down in the first game of this current series means they are going to have to do it the hard way. But we don’t think they will be able to in this game.

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Minnesota Twins – 2.10PM ET

This Saturday game will be the second game in a three game mini series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Minnesota Twins. The first game was won by the Minnesota Twins, 2-0, with the Twins scoring 1 run in the third and 1 run in the fifth innings to draw first blood.

The Pirates have been pretty hot and cold recently with their previous results making a win-loss-win-loss pattern, and with the loss against the Twins in the first game, they are looking to bounce back (like they know they can) to level things up in the series. They have seen a number of players put in key performances to help them in their victories so far this month.

Minnesota’s win in the first game of this series was their first in 4 games. They haven’t had a really good month so far, some close losses as well as a few games being postponed. The Twins are in last place in AL Central Division, much to the surprise of experts and fans alike.

Many thought they would be at the top of the division fighting with the White Sox! Nelson Cruz, however, has been a stand up and we need to see more of him to keep the wins coming. While Minnesota will give it their all, we like the look of the Pirates to bounce back and snap up the win.

Los Angeles Angels @ Houston Astros – 4.10PM ET

This Saturday afternoon game will be the third out of four in a mini series between the Los Angeles Angels and the Houston Astros. The first game was won by the Astros in a blow out, 8-2. The game on Friday was a lot closer, in fact it had to go to the 10th innings, where the Astros were victorious once again.

The Los Angeles Angels have lost 4 out of their last 5, so they are really struggling to get any sort of momentum. The Friday game would have been hard to watch for the Angels fans, as their team got so close, yet so far for a win. The Angels started off the season strong but the form has started to plateau and now go on the decline, they need their star players to step up to get more wins on the board.

The Astros started off the month very strong, winning 6 of their first 7 games of April, then came a little bit of a slump, losing 6 games in a row. But they are back on the winning train and they have two wins in a row, both against the Angels in this series. Houston really needed those two wins to give themselves back some belief. While they have won two of the first 4 games in this series, we like the look of the Los Angeles Angels to bounce back.

Texas Rangers @ Chicago White Sox – 7.10PM ET

This Saturday game will be the second of a three game mini series. The first game was won by the Chicago White Sox in a high scoring affair, 9-7. It seemed all over by the third innings where the White Sox managed to get 5 runs. But the Rangers did fight back in the next two innings, although it wasn’t enough to get them across the line. 

The Texas Rangers have won 6 of their last 10. The Rangers seem to be struggling offensively this season so far, and they are sitting in the bottom third in the league with runs scored per game. If you are a Rangers fan and you are looking for some good news, then you’ll like this: the Rangers are actually better on the road this season!

The Chicago White Sox have also won 6 of their last 10, including the win against the Rangers on Friday. Left of the field seems to be an issue for the White Sox at the moment and they can’t settle on a player to field in this area. With a good win against the Rangers  already under their belt, we like the look of the White Sox to take home another win on Saturday night.

Philadelphia Phillies @ Colorado Rockies – 8.10PM ET

This is the second game in a three game mini series with the Philadelphia Phillies up against the Colorado Rockies. The first game was a narrow win to the Rockies, 5-4. The scores were tied 4-4 going into the final 9th inning, but the Rockies were able to get one more run in the 9th to steal victory.

The Philadelphia Phillies started off the month with 5 wins from the first 6 games. Since then there has been a bit of inconsistency with the team and results. The Phillies will be on the road for a while now and are bound to get tired. So, these first few road games are important to get some wins in your back pocket.

The Colorado Rockies have won 4 of their last 5 games, but are just coming off a 7 game losing streak. Throughout those 7 games, they lost a series to the Giants as well as the Dodgers. Most of the losses however, were quite narrow, with only one being a real blow out, which was a loss to the Dodgers, 7-0. With a win in this series already in the books, we like the Colorado Rockies to back it up again on Saturday with another win.

If it's sport, Katherine has got you covered. She doesn't discriminate, and loves all sport equally, from baseball to darts, if there's a competition going on, she is all over it. Her days are filled with watching as much sport, and reading as much as she can.The biggest problem Katherine faces is that she doesn't have enough screens for all the different games she wants to watch (oh and also the lack of sleep...but that doesn't count!). She loves sport so much, she made it her career and now she can do the things she loves day in and day out.
