The 2013 MLB betting season is off and running here at Cappers Info, and we are set to make more of our patented MLB picks for one of our favorite times of year. On Saturday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be led onto the field by Chris Capuano, as they play host to the Chicago Cubs, who will be countering with Jeff Samardzija. The first pitch from Wrigley Field is set to be thrown out at 4:05 p.m. ET

Dodgers vs. Cubs On TV: FOX


MLB Odds & Probable Starting Pitchers
Los Angeles Dodgers (Chris Capuano) -110
Chicago Cubs (Jeff Samardzija) +103
Total: Off

The square thing to do on Saturday would be to look at the Dodgers at -110 and think that they are a steal, knowing that they have won 29-of-36 games and have stormed to the head of the class in the NL West. We know that the Cubs don’t have the best home record in the game by any stretch of the imagination, and we know that RHP Jeff Samardzija has only led his team to a 10-12 record this year in his 22 starts, but he still could have the goods to get the job done in this one. Samardzija is still striking out over a man an inning, and the Dodgers, for all of what they have done right, still don’t give us a lot of confidence at the back end of their rotation. LHP Chris Capuano has led the team to three straight wins, but we aren’t sold. Samardzija has led the Cubs to a 4-1 record in his last five starts against NL West teams. LA is also just 1-4 in Capuano’s last five starts on more than just four days of rest, as he will have in this one. The Cubs are good enough to win this game at least half the time, and that’s good enough to give us the confidence to want to play them on Saturday afternoon.
