It’s a full slate of MLB games on Saturday and there's plenty of value in terms of player props that can make you money. Let’s take a look at some of the best MLB player prop bets and their odds.

Max Scherzer over 8.5 strikeouts (+100)

Max Scherzer has had at least nine strikeouts in three of his last four starts including the last game against the Miami Marlins. The one start that he didn’t have nine strikeouts, he only had five strikeouts. I expect Scherzer to go deep in this game and Scherzer will finish with at least nine strikeouts.

Carlos Martinez under 4.5 strikeouts (-101)

Carlos Martinez has been finding success this season, but he isn’t the strikeout pitcher that he once was. In his last start against the Pittsburgh Pirates he went eight innings but only had three strikeouts total. Only one start this season has Martinez gone over 4.5 strikeouts and this isn’t the game that it’s going to happen again. Look for Martinez to finish with under 4.5 strikeouts. 

Aaron Judge Under 0.5 Hits (+115)

Aaron Judge has a tough matchup going against Max Scherzer in this game, and getting plus money is worth a look. Each of the last three games, Aaron Judge has failed to get a hit and it’s not going to change in this game. Look for Aaron Judge to be held hitless again and for this bet to cash at plus money. 

Jonathan Schoop Under 0.5 hits (+130)

Jonathan Schoop is going to struggle to get a hit against Jose Berrios. In 32.2 innings so far this season, Berrios in 32.2 innings so far this year has given up only 24 hits. Schoop couldn’t manage a hit on Friday and he will be held hitless again on Saturday. 

Jose Urena over 4.5 strikeouts (-134)

The Twins team strikeouts a lot and Jose Urena is going to feast with the strikeouts in this game. In Urena’s last game against the New York Yankees, he had seven strikeouts and he is going to lock down again in this game. Look for Urena to finish with over 4.5 strikeouts.
