Saturday is a full slate across the MLB and that means there is plenty of value with the MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props to make your Saturday a winning one.
Wil Crowe under 3.5 strikeouts (+110)
Wil Crowe is going to finish under 3.5 strikeouts. Crowe has had at least four strikeouts in each of the last two games, but in the previous two games, he had finished with only two. I expect the Mets are going to be more disciplined in this game, and chase Crowe from the game early. Back Crowe to finish under 3.5 strikeouts.
Gerrit Cole over 6.5 strikeouts (-120)
I don’t think Gerrit Cole is going to find as much as success he did in his last start against the Houston Astros, but he is still going to strike out plenty. Cole should finish with at least eight strikeouts.
Boston Red Sox / New York Yankees under 0.5 runs in the first inning (-105)
I expect both teams are going to struggle to score early in this game. Cole is going to be strong early, and the Yankees offense has zero confidence right now. Both pitchers are going to be the difference early in this game, and neither team will finish with a run in the first inning.
Los Angeles Dodgers over 7.5 runs (+100)
This is a high number to lay for a team total, but there is still a lot of value in this game. Kyle Freeland showed some regression in his last start against the San Diego Padres, and the Dodgers are going to make him look really bad. The Dodgers will finish with closer to ten runs, and the over will be cashed.
