All four 2022 MLB Division Series continue on Saturday with three series possibly coming to an end. The day starts with the Braves (-125) and Phillies from Philadelphia. They will be followed by the Astros versus the Mariners (-110) in Seattle, and the Guardians then host the Yankees in Cleveland. Luis Severino (7-3, 3.18 ERA) will take the mound for New York, while Cleveland will send Triston McKenzie (11-11, 2.96 ERA) to the hill. The day ends in San Diego with the Dodgers and Padres battling it out. The only series guaranteed to see Sunday is the Yankees and Guardians, although all four could.
New York is a -120 favorite in the latest MLB odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Cleveland is a +100 underdog. The over/under for runs scored is 6.5. Each series is a best-of-five, with the winners advancing to the league championship series. Before making any MLB picks or parlays, be sure to see the predictions and betting advice from SportsLine’s proven computer model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it entered the divisional round on a 20-11 roll on top-rated MLB money-line picks, returning more than $600. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, the model has locked in four confident MLB best bets for Saturday. If you successfully parlay the picks, you’d be looking at a payout of well over 5-1. You can only see the model’s MLB picks at SportsLine.
Top MLB playoff picks for Saturday
The model, which ran 10,000 simulations on each of Saturday’s Division Series games, likes San Diego (-170) to cover the +1.5 run line against Los Angeles. The Padres entered the series with a 2-1 Wild Card Series win over the heavily-favored New York Mets, and now have a stunning 2-1 series lead over the Dodgers. They had struggled against Los Angeles this year and are just 7-15 against them in 2022.
Since Sept. 2, The Dodgers have gone 7-5 against the Padres, but San Diego is on the verge of advancing to the NLCS. Despite the loss of Daniel Hudson and Walker Buehler to season-ending injuries, the Dodgers starting rotation is among the best in baseball with their top three starters sporting ERAs at 2.28 or better this season.
But the model likes the value of San Diego at least keeping this one competitive with Joe Musgrove on the hill, making the Padres the value side here. See who else to back right here.
