MLB Expert Picks for Saturday, May 25

Our VI baseball betting experts have compiled their MLB picks for Saturday, May 25 and they're focusing on the matchups below:

Mariners vs Nationals Free Picks

Washington Nationals +1.5 (-110)

MacKenzie Gore pitched seven strong innings in a 6-1 victory against the visiting Seattle Mariners last night and I'm betting on the Nationals to have an edge against a Seattle team that has lost 3 straight and that sends a struggling pitcher in Logan Gilbert to the hill.

The righty owns an 0-2 record along with a 7.56 ERA in his L/3 starts.

Meanwhile, the Nats send Trevor Williams to the hill. He has performed admirably this season and owns a 4-0 record along with a stingy 2.35 ERA. My early season power rankings suggest he matches up well here and gets the nod to help us cover the run line offering.

Mariners have failed to cover the RUN LINE as an away chalk vs the NL EAST in 10 straight Games.

MLB Home teams against a run line. (+1.5, -130) to (-1.5, +160) (WASHINGTON) - after having lost 5 or 6 of their last 7 games, playing on Saturday are 49-92 L/5 seasons for a go against 65% conversion rate for bettors.

Yankees vs Padres Free Picks

Yankees @ Padres Under 7.5 Total Runs (-105)

The New York Yankees have held opponents to two runs or fewer in 7 of their last 9 games. The Yankees have good starting pitching as well as a deep bullpen.

The San Diego Padres offense is very streaky. They have struggled in a lot of games of late. The Padres have been held scoreless in 4 of their last 9 contests.

Dylan Cease has elite stuff and is capable of shutting down good lineups. He does have some blowup potential, but it is a big plus for him that Doug Eddings is the home plate umpire here.

Marcus Stroman has been consistently pitching well this season, and the bullpen is in good shape heading into this one.

Doug Eddings has the highest strikes called percentage of any umpire in my umpire database over the last five years. Eddings has a ridiculously high strikeout/walk ratio of 3.96 so far this season. He's a clear positive for the under.

Take the under here.

Free MLB Money Line Picks

Looking for a straight up winner? The Vegas Insider MLB Money Line Picks focuses on just picking the winner. It's as simple as that and knowing that there's no clock in baseball, your wagers are never losers until the final out is punched. Our Free MLB Money Line Picks are known for their value, especially when our stable of experts lay into some live underdogs. 

Free MLB Run-Line Picks

Run-Line Picks is MLB can be viewed as ATS or Against the Spread Picks since a spread or in this case, a run-line is involved. Oddsmakers always open run-line spreads as -1.5 or +1.5 and then there is money associated with each run-line spread. Instead of backing a heavy money-line favorite, bettors have the option to back that team to win by two or more runs at a lower price. When taking the underdog at the +1.5 price, your wager can still lose the game outright but if it stays within the spread (1.5) then you'll be okay. Our MLB Run Line Free Picks will feature a selection either on the favorite or the underdog and will include betting analysis on how to lay or take the points. 

Free MLB Over Under Totals Picks

If you’re undecided on MLB ML or MLB Run Line Free Picks, you must be a Totals bettor and our Free MLB Over Under Totals Picks allow you to cheer for either a slugfest at the ballpark or a great pitching battle. Everybody loves the longball and cheering for an Over is much more fun but that doesn’t prevent our experts from playing the Under in our Free MLB Picks page and look for strikeouts. All selections featured in the MLB Over Under Totals Picks include betting analysis and tips on how to find the best markets.
