The Wolf has you covered with his tips for the MLB action on Saturday. The Houston Astros are the best team in the Majors and face last year’s World Series runners up, the Cleveland Indians..
Cleveland Indians at Houston Astros (10:10am)
The Astros (29-12) and Indians (20-19) start a three game series on Saturday in Houston. The Astros have won 9 of the last 10 games and the Indians are 4-6 in the last 10. Trevor Bauer starts for the Indians in this game. Bauer is ranked second last in MLB for ERA (6.92) and faces the Astros dynamic batting lineup. The Astros are ranked second in the league for hits (385) and fourth in runs scored (211). Four Astros batters have scored over 20 RBIs and George Springer leads the team in home runs with 9. They dominated the Marlins in their last series, scoring 22 runs in three games and conceded just 4. Charlie Morton makes his ninth start of the season and has a 5-2 record, he’s won four straight decisions. His last two starts at home have been solid, allowing just 2 runs in 11.2 innings. The Wolf is tipping another win for the streaking Astros and he’s predicting at least a 2 run win.
Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres (12:10pm)
Arizona (24-18) and San Diego (15-28) kick off a three game series on Saturday at Petco Park. The Diamondbacks are 4-3 against the Padres in 2017. The total runs has reached over 8.5 runs in 4 of 7 games, so the Wolf is expecting another high scoring battle between two inconsistent pitchers. For the Diamondbacks, Taijuan Walker has lost his last two starts and his strikeout has been well below his best. He’s 3-3 this season with a 3.91 ERA. While, the Padres start veteran Jered Weaver in this game. He’s 0-4 from 8 starts and owns a 6.05 ERA. His last start against Arizona was a 5.2 innings outing as he allowed 5 runs from 6 hits. Which included 3 home runs. He’ll need to contain the Diamondbacks fifth ranked offence in terms of run scoring. Jake Lamb has homered in consecutive games and Paul Goldschmidt leads the team with 10 home runs. The Wolf suggests betting on the over total game score in this game.
