It’s a full slate of games across the MLB on Saturday with every team in action and even a few teams playing doubleheaders. Let’s take a look at the best MLB player props to help make your Saturday filled with winners.
Luis Castillo Under 5.5 strikeouts (-118)
Luis Castillo has not been good this season and he isn’t going to last long against the Chicago Cubs in this game. Only once over his last seven starts has he had more than five strikeouts, and in this game he is going to have issues against the Cubs. Look for Luis Castillo to finish with under 5.5 strikeouts.
Yu Darvish over 6.5 strikeouts (+100)
Yu Darvish going over 6.5 strikeouts is the play in this game. Two games ago against the Colorado Rockies, Darvish finished with 10 strikeouts, and he is going to find success against the Houston Astros offense. Back Darvish to finish with at least 6.5 strikeouts.
Brandon Lowe Under 0.5 hits (+126)
Brandon Lowe is going to have issues having good at-bats on Saturday. On the mound for the Phillies is Zack Wheeler who currently sits with an ERA of 2.38 and Lowe isn’t going to get on base. Look for Lowe to finish with zero hits and for the +126 to cash.
Kris Bryant Over 0.5 runs batted in (+220)
This is the best play on the board because of the value that the +220 offers. Luis Castillo has been lit up so far this season, and Kris Bryant is going to continue that damage on Saturday. Bryant only has one RBI against Castillo in 18 at bats, but he is facing a much different Castillo in this game. Look for Bryant to finish with at least one RBI.
Javier Baez to hit a home run (+1000)
Javier Baez is also getting that great matchup against Castillo and he will be another one of those players that will find success in this game. On the season, Baez has had 11 home runs and he will add to that total on Saturday.
