Every MLB team is in action on Saturday night and that means there is plenty of value across the board in terms of MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB prop bets and MLB player props to make your Saturday a winning one.
Colorado Rockies to score first and win (+175)
The Colorado Rockies send Kyle Freeland to the mound and he is going to lockdown in the first inning. Freeland not giving up any runs in the first inning is going to be all the Rockies need to score first because they will be scoring runs in the bottom of the first. Look for the Rockies to score first and win.
Gerrit Cole over 7.5 strikeouts (-120)
The Twins are a strikeout prone team and now they face off against an elite strikeout pitcher. In Cole’s last start against the Los Angeles Angels he had nine strikeouts, and he is going to mow them down in this game. Look for Cole to finish over 7.5 strikeouts.
Miami Marlins, Cincinnati Reds under 0.5 runs in the first inning (+100)
The Miami Marlins and Cincinnati Reds are going to get off to slow starts with their bats in this game. Wade Miley and Zach Thompson have both found a lot of success this year. The pitchers are both going to lock down early in this game and the under will cash.
San Diego Padres to score first and lose (+700)
This a longer shot parlay but I like the +700 on the bet. The Padres bullpen has been a bit shaky this season and that could really hurt them in this game. Look for the Padres to get the offense scoring first, but late in the game they will blow the game and lose.
