MLB Player Prop Bets for Saturday June 11
Ty France over 1.5 total bases (+115)
It’s always fun to go through each day’s batter-pitcher matchups and see what weird stuff comes up. Here’s something strange: France has seven hits in just nine plate appearances against Red Sox starter Michael Wacha. That includes three doubles.
Clayton Kershaw less than 4.5 strikeouts (-105)
Kershaw will make his first MLB start since early May after missing more than a month with a pelvic injury. He threw 59 pitches in a rehab start last week, and it’s fair to wonder if the Dodgers will let him throw more than 70-80 today against the Giants. They will no doubt handle the future Hall of Famer with kid gloves in an effort to keep him healthy. Although the Giants fail quite frequently, Kershaw may not be around long enough to get what he needs to clear the number here. Before going on the disabled list, Kershaw finished under five strikeouts in two of his last three starts.
Garrett Cooper over 0.5 RBIs (+255)
Who has been the best hitter in baseball since May 20, and how many people would guess it’s Cooper? Since the start of the game on May 20, Cooper’s .455 batting average and .507 on-base percentage are the best in the majors among players with at least 75 plate appearances. Cooper also has a .682 slugging percentage, 10 extra-base hits and 14 RBIs during that 18-game span. Lastly, Cooper has a hit in eight of his previous 14 at-bats with runners in scoring position. Although he today faces a difficult client in Framber Valdez of the Astros, this red-hot run producer is worth a bet.
