Three Starters With Over Value On The Hill Saturday
By Covers.com

Saturday's MLB schedule features three starters on the board that could be worth a look for over wagers. Why? Because their teams provide them with some of the best run support in the bigs.

Clay Buchholz, Boston Red Sox, (6-0, 1.60 ERA)

Buchholz is coming off the least impressive outing of his otherwise unblemished 2013 season. The Texan lasted six innings giving up four earned runs and seven hits versus the Minnesota Twins. His last two starts have gone over the number and the Sox supply the righty with an outstanding six runs of support per game.

Boston hosts the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday. The Red Sox defeated the Jays 10-1 with Buchholz on the mound on May 1.

Jonathon Niese, New York Mets (2-3, 4.66 ERA)

The Mets lefty has been a great over wager this season. He goes into Saturday's start with a 6-1 over/under record. Any $100 bettor would be up $539.02 if they had taken the over on each of Niese's starts this season. His 4.66 ERA, plus the fact that the Mets give him 6.29 runs per start, makes him a solid play on the over.

Niese and the Mets are home to face the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday. He was excellent in his lone start versus the Bucs in 2012, notching the victory with one earned run in 7 2/3 innings of work.

Yu Darvish, Texas Rangers, (5-1, 2.56 ERA)

Darvish gets the second-most run support in the American League with 6.71 runs per game. Two of his previous three starts have gone over the number and he is coming off a deep, 127-pitch effort versus the Red Sox on May 5.

The Rangers continue their series versus the Houston Astros Saturday. Darvish opened the season with a 7-0 victory versus Houston on April 2. He pitched 8 2/3 innings of one-hit ball.

San Diego Padres at Tampa Bay Rays

All signs point to a higher-scoring game when Tampa Bay Rays and San Diego Padres play the second of this three game Inter-league set at Tropicana Field Saturday. Rays' Jeremy Hellickson (1-2, 4.79) unable to get past the fifth inning in each of his last two starts giving up 15 hits, 2 Jacks, 7 runs opens the door for Padres playing solid ball of late (10-4) crossing 4.6 runs/game to inflict damage. Meanwhile, Tampa hitters seeing the ball well plating a whopping 6.3 per/game the past thirteen on the diamond get their share swinging at right hander Burch Smith making his major league debut. Tampa posting thirteen straight 'Over', Rays ridding a 9-1-3 'Over' stretch vs a right-handed starter, Padres 4-2 'Over' after a GM-1 series loss, 9-3-1 'Over' L13 against the A.L. East no need bucking trends here.
