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 Cincinnati Reds will be led onto the field by Mike Leake, as they play host to the Texas Rangers, who will be countering with Nick Tepesch. The first pitch from Rangers Ballpark is set to be thrown out at 7:15 p.m. ET

MLB Odds & Probable Starting Pitchers
Cincinnati Reds (Mike Leake) +112
Texas Rangers (Nick Tepesch) -117
Total: 9.5

The oddsmakers set this ‘total’ of 9.5 on Friday night as well, and the number just wasn’t nearly low enough to be threatened. On Saturday though, we think there is going to be a totally different story written. Just look at how frustrating it was to be wearing a Reds uniform and batting on Friday night. There were 15 runners left on base and six runners left in scoring position with two outs. Of course, there were 15 runners stranded, four of which were in scoring position with two outs for the Rangers as well. Rule of thumb suggests that on Saturday, fortunes will be better for both offenses. The Cincinnati bullpen was overworked on Friday night, needing to throw seven innings to finish the game, and that is going to put a lot of pressure on Manager Dusty Baker to throw RHP Mike Leake for as long as possible. Leake isn’t the man that we are counting on to give up all of the runs, though. RHP Nick Tepesch did pitch well in his last start, but prior to that one, he had allowed a whopping 17 earned runs in just 15.2 innings of work over three starts. If that’s what he is going to do on Saturday – and we think that he is in line for a dud such as that – this game should fly past the number and well into the double digits.

Reds @ Rangers Pick 6/29/13: Over 9.5
Reds @ Rangers Score Prediction: Cincinnati 7 – Texas 4
