Underdogs bit hard on Friday with the Mets and Cubs coming through for Vegas dog bettors. The Cubs remain the biggest dog on the board again Saturday.

The Cubs were +181 road underdogs at St. Louis, but come off a win Friday against the Cards. Five of the past six meetings have played UNDER the total.

Rookie Yu Darvish takes the hill for Texas, and the Rangers are the biggest road favorite (-162 at Minnesota).

Detroit is also a tempting underdog Saturday, as the Tigers visit the White Sox.

And Tampa Bay is an underdog at Boston, despite dominating the Red Sox recently with an 8-2 mark in the last 10 meetings.
