Saturday sees some enticing MLB match-ups that will capture the imaginations of fans across the world. Take a look at Sports.net’s MLB betting preview for Saturday 10th June.

In the American League, leaders Houston Astros host the mid-table Los Angeles Angels at Minute Maid Park, with the Astros hoping to get back to winning ways and are strong favourites to do so. The New York Yankees sit second ahead of their home fixture with the Baltimore Orioles, but with the visitors in decent form after two straight wins, there is little to pick between them in the market.

National League leaders Washington Nationals welcome Texas Rangers to Nationals Park, with the home side strong favourites. Washington are odds on to beat the Rangers. With the Colorado Rockies who sit second not playing on Saturday, the Milwaukee Brewers in third can make progress at the top of the table, but face a stern test at fourth placed Arizona Diamondbacks.

How the Bookies See it

  • Angels at Astros: Astros 1/2, Angels 17/10 – William Hill
  • Orioles at Yankees: Yankees 5/7, Orioles 6/5 – Bet365
  • Rangers at Nationals: Nationals 10/19, Rangers 33/20 – William Hill
  • Brewers at Diamondbacks: Diamondbacks 4/6, Brewers 13/10 - Boylesports

Form

The Houston Astros are clear leaders of the American League, but have suffered narrow defeats in their last two games against the Kansas City Royals. They face a third game against the Royals on Friday, before facing an inconsistent Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, where the Astros can get back to winning ways.  

The New York Yankees welcome a Baltimore Orioles side, with both teams in decent form. After a narrow 4-5 defeat against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees bounced back to secure an 8-0 win next time. Those two sides meet again on Friday, but the Yankees then host the Orioles who have beaten the Pittsburgh Pirates in their last two games. This one is too close to call.      

The Washington Nationals have faced three very close games with the LA Dodgers, winning two before a defeat in their last encounter. They now face a Texas Rangers side who have won just once in their last five games. The Nationals are strong favourites and should be able to hit enough runs to secure another victory.    

Sports.net's View

The Seattle Mariners have won their last five games in a row and look a decent bet to make it six victories on the bounce by beating the Toronto Blue Jays. The Mariners have won four of those games comfortably and can out hit the Blue Jays who have struggled to score their home runs. At odds of Evens, the Mariners look a safe bet.  

The Cincinnati Reds travel to the LA Dodgers off the back of four straight wins. The Reds are the third biggest hitters in the National League and can outscore their hosts, despite the Dodgers being very tight in the field. The Dodgers had lost three in a row before a 2-1 success over an in-form Washington Nationals, but the Reds arrive in confidence and look too good to pass up at odds of 17/10 for the win with BetVictor.
