We have a decent slate of major league baseball tonight and that means Underdog Fantasy props! We are now deep into September and have an entire season of MLB data to pore through so let’s check out the MLB props board at Underdog Fantasy. Tonight, we are looking at two pitchers with fairly low strikeout props- Framber Valdez, who is in the middle of a record-breaking quality starts streak and Logan Gilbert, a pitcher that has been lights out over the second half of the MLB season. We also take you to Coors where Manny Machado faces a pitcher that he has owned throughout his career. Check our MLB Weather center to make sure that all games will be dry and that there are no surprising pop-up storms during roster lock. To get all the confirmed starting lineups make sure to go to the MLB Lineups page. We also have an MLB DFS Lineup Generator and MLB Player Projections to make all of your fantasy baseball lineups plus an MLB Tools page that features batter vs. pitcher and advanced metrics. Now let’s take a look at my three favorite props on Underdog Fantasy for Saturday’s baseball action.

 

Framber Valdez OVER 6.5 Strikeouts

The talk about Framber Valdez has been his lack of strikeouts- they say that it is the one thing that keeps from being a dominant pitcher? Well, I would say that he has been incredibly consistent this season and just set a major-league record last weekend by posting his 25th consecutive quality start. That isn’t dominating? Plus, the strikeouts. In the second half of the season, he has recorded seven or more in eight of 10 starts while going 8-1 with a 2.42 ERA/2.71 xFIP.  Not too shabby and tonight he gets a plus matchup against the Orioles who strikeout 24.7% to left-handed pitching with a team .292wOBA. Take the over.

Logan Gilbert OVER 5.5 Strikeouts

The Mariners are in a playoff fight, and they need Logan Gilbert. The good news is that he has been awesome Gilbert has been phenomenal down the stretch allowing just six earned runs over his last six starts with a 1.57 ERA and has struck out nine or more batters in three of his last four. Over his last five he has a 1.33 FIP with a 1.23 ERA/0.95 WHIP and a big boy 31% K rate (11.0 K/9).  He gets a plus matchup tonight against the Royals who strikeout 24% to right-handed pitching with a team .303wOBA. This should be another easy over strikeout prop as Gilbert should have a long leash with nine plus strikeouts in three of his last four starts.

Manny Machado OVER 8.5 Fantasy Points 

Manny Machado enters tonight’s game in Coors with hits in six of his last seven games to up his batting average up to .296 for the season. Over the last week he has 2 HR/5 RBI with a .415wOBA and over his last 20 games he has 6 HR/13 RBI with a .240 ISO. On the season Machado has been elite with 30 home runs and 95 RBI for a .235 ISO/.385 wOBA and now gets a big-time matchup in the #1 hitters park in baseball against a pitcher that he owns. Machado is 7-for-14 (.500) lifetime against Chad Kuhl with two bombs. Kuhl has posted an ugly 6.75 ERA/1.46 WHIP and 54.75 WHIP over his last five starts.  Lock the Macho Man in tonight.
