Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants Saturday Free MLB Pick: Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park should be a great day for some baseball betting action on the MLB Network. This 4:05 p.m. ET first pitch features the San Francisco Giants and the Atlanta Braves, as they duke it out in the third game of this four-game set in the Bay Area. Join us at TCPS, as we have your winning MLB picks and baseball predictions for this excellent game.

We think that it is a travesty that the Braves are underdogs in this game. San Francisco has done a nice job this season, but it has hit a bit of a lull at 1-3 in its last four games going into play on Friday night. In this stretch, the starting pitchers haven’t gone particularly deep into games, and LHP Madison Bumgarner started this mess when he gave up five runs in 6.0 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies. Bumgarner is going to be back on the bump in this one, and he is going to hope to get back on the horse, but he has a great pitcher on the other side as well in LHP Paul Maholm. Maholm’s numbers don’t scream those of a fantastic pitcher, but when you take away that terrible start against the Detroit Tigers, what’s left is a man that has been flat out dominating. The southpaw hasn’t allowed more than seven base runners in any other game this season that he has started aside from the one in Motown. If that keeps up once again on Saturday, Maholm should knock off the Giants at least half the time. Braves vs. Giants Free Pick for May 11th: Take the Atlanta Braves +121
