Philadelphia Phillies @ Tampa Bay Rays – 1.10PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays will be the first game of a two game mini series. It will be the fourth home game in a row for the Tampa Bay Rays, while this will be the Philadelphia Phillies’ fifth away game in a row.

The Philadelphia Phillies are having an okay season so far, they are currently sitting on a 25-26 season record, so a couple more wins will see them improve to a winning record. They are currently the second team in the East Division in the National League, with the New York Mets the only team in front of them. 

The Phillies have only won four out of their last ten games, including a series loss to the Red Sox and a series tie with the Marlins. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are in the bottom third of the league, with an average of 4.1.


The Tampa Bay Rays are having a killer season so far, they are currently sitting on a 32-20 season record. They are at the top of their East Division in the American League, with their closest rivals being the Boston Red Sox. 

The Rays have won an impressive nine of their last ten games, which includes series wins against the Orioles, Blue Jays and the Royals. Unsurprisingly, the Rays are also near the front of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 5.

The Phillies are not currently a good team when playing on the road, they are 12-25 in their previous 37 road games. The Rays are also on fire at the moment, with only one loss in their last ten games, they also love playing on Saturday, they are 14-4 in their previous 18 games played on this day of the week. We like the look of Tampa Bay getting another win here.

Baltimore Orioles @ Chicago White Sox – 2.10PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox will be the second game of a four game mini series (after the second game scheduled in this mini series on Friday was postponed due to weather). The first game was played on Thursday and unsurprisingly, the Chicago White Sox won, 5-1.

The Baltimore Orioles are having a terrible season so far, they are currently sitting on a 17-33 season record. They are currently the last team in the East Division in the American League by a long shot, with their closest rival being the Toronto Blue Jays who are eight wins ahead of them. 

The Orioles have won no games out of their last ten, including series losses to the Rays, Nationals and Twins. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are at the bottom of the league, with an average of 4.

The Chicago White Sox are having a much better season so far compared to the Orioles, they are currently sitting on a 29-20 season record. They are at the top of their Central Division in the American League, with their closest rivals being the Cleveland Indians. 

The White Sox have won five of their last ten games, which includes a series loss against the Yankees as well as a series win against the Cardinals. Unsurprisingly, the White Sox are also near the front of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 5.11.

Eventually the Orioles losing streak will have to come to an end, but we don’t think it will be against a team as good as the White Sox. The White Sox are the kind of team that can take advantage of playing at home, and over the long run, the Orioles are not a team that likes playing away from home. This game will be closer than people think, but the White Sox will still get the win.

Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland Athletics – 4.07PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the Los Angeles Angels and the Oakland Athletics will be the third game of a four game mini series. The first game was played on Thursday where the Athletics drew first blood, winning 5-0. The second game of the mini series was played on Friday and the Athletics made it two from two, winning 3-1.

The Los Angeles Angels are not having a good season of results so far, they are currently sitting on a 22-28 season record. They are currently the second last team in the West Division in the American League, with the Texas Rangers the only team behind them. 

The Angels have won only four games out of their last ten, including a series loss to the Athletics this time last week but most recently a series win against the Rangers. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are near the middle of the league, with an average of 4.6.


The Oakland Athletics are having a much better season so far compared to the Angels, they are currently sitting on a 30-22 season record. They are at the top of their West Division in the American League (same division and league as the Angels), with their closest rivals being the Houston Astros, who are three wins behind. 

The Athletics have won five of their last ten games, which includes a series loss against the Mariners as well as a series win against the Angels. The Athletics are in the middle of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 4.2.

The Athletics just seem to know what it takes to beat the Angels, winning the first two games of this mini series, as well as the mini series against the Angels this time last week. The Athletics are a team that likes playing at home, so don’t expect anything different on Saturday afternoon. We expect the Athletics to extend their current win streak to four.

New York Yankees @ Detroit Tigers – 4.10PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers will be the second game of a three game mini series. The first game was played on Friday night, and boy was it a thriller, going down to the wire in the tenth innings.

The Yankees were up first in the tenth innings and got one additional run on the board, but when the Tigers came up to bat, they shocked fans and bettors alike by scoring two runs, therefore winning 3-2.

The New York Yankees are having a great season so far, they are currently sitting on a 29-21 season record. Despite this awesome season record, they are in a highly competitive East Division in the American League, and they are sitting in third place, behind the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox.

The Yankees have won seven out of their last ten games, but this does include three losses in the last four games. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are in the bottom third of the league, with an average of 4.

The Detroit Tigers are not bringing in the results that would have hoped for so far this season, they are currently sitting on a 19-31 season record. They are at the bottom of their Central Division in the American League, with the Chicago White Sox at the top of the division with ten more wins than the Tigers. 

The Tigers have won five of their last ten games, which includes series losses against the Indians and the Royals. The Tigers are also right near the bottom of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 3.62.

You would think that with Detroit playing at home it would help give them a slight edge over one of the most competitive teams in the league, but when looking at the Tigers recent record at home, it doesn’t inspire much confidence.

They are currently 35-83 in their last 118 games at home. Plus, the Yankees just suffered a humiliating loss against the team, and we don’t think they will let that happen again. Back the Yankees to level the series.

San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers – 7.15PM ET

This Saturday night clash between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will be the third game of a four game mini series. The first game was played on Thursday where the Dodgers drew first blood, winning 4-3. The second game of the mini series was played on Friday and the Giants were able to strike back, winning 8-5 in the tenth innings.

The San Francisco Giants are having a great season of results so far, they are currently sitting on a 31-20 season record. They are currently the third team in the West Division in the National League, with the Padres and Dodgers the teams ahead of them.

The Giants have won six games out of their last ten, including a series win against the Diamondbacks and a series clean sweep loss to the Dodgers, this time last week. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are near the middle of the league, with an average of 4.7.


The Los Angeles Dodgers are also having a great season of results so far and they are actually on the same record as the Giants, 31-20. They are in second in their West Division in the National League (same division and league as the Giants), with their Padres leading the way. 

The Dodgers have won eight of their last ten games, which includes series wins against the Giants and the Diamondbacks. The Dodgers are right at the top of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 5.25.

Two highly competitive teams at the moment, this should be an interesting clash. To make it even more interesting, they are both on the same season record, with this mini series level 1-1. Both the Giants and the Dodgers have momentum going into this game, but the Dodgers have the better team as well as the home advantage. We will be backing the Dodgers.
