MLB Player Props – Best Bets
Mitch Keller Over 6.5 Strikeouts -126 (FanDuel)
Mitch Keller has been amazing this season, and he has a dream matchup tonight at home against the Athletics. Oakland has the 2nd highest K rate against right-handed pitching this season and the 7th highest K rate on the road in the last two weeks. Keller has gone over this number in his last seven starts and in 10/12 starts this season. Also, he is in the 87th percentile for K rate, the 30th for whiff%, and the 46th for chase rate.
Zach Eflin Over 5.5 Strikeouts -120 (FanDuel)
Eflin has had a great season in Tampa Bay so far, and he has a great matchup tonight against the Twins. Eflin has gone over this number just twice this season, but this is the best matchup he has had in a while. Minnesota strikes out at the highest rate vs. right-handed pitching, they have a 30.3% K rate over the last two weeks, and they chase and whiff above the league average. Eflin is in the 57th percentile for K rate and the 90th for chase rate. He should be able to ring up six strikeouts tonight.
