Best MLB Strikeout Bets: Lock In This Expert's Best MLB Player Prop Bets for Friday

With a full slate of games on tonight's MLB board, I've added my favorite three strikeout props below.

Let's have a huge start to the weekend!

June 14 Best MLB Strikeout Props

Chris Sale Over 7.5 Ks (+102) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

The Atlanta Braves will pitch Chris Sale against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight.

The left-handed ace has already struck out 31.1% of batters this season and has added 30.7% of strikeouts against batters over the last 30 days.

He'll face off against a Rays projected lineup that has struck out 27% of the time against lefties. In the projected lineup, there will be all nine lefties, which also plays into Sale's favor.

After all, Sale has added 32.2% of strikeouts against righties and just 21.4% of strikeouts against lefties. He dominates righties and will face a Rays lineup that has seven righties that have struck out at a very high rate over the last 30 days.

Take Sale to earn at least eight strikeouts. He could potentially reach 10+.

Tarik Skubal Under 6.5 Ks (-140) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

I'm a huge fan of Tarik Skubal. I think he's one of the best pitchers in the MLB. But this matchup against the Astros is not it.

While Skubal has struck out 31% of batters this season, he'll face an Astros lineup that has struck out only 12.2% against lefties in the last 30 days.

The Houston lineup iterally has one batter that has struck out more than 17.2% of the time against lefties.

Instead, the Astros have only walked 3.8%. They're aggressive at the plate and looking to put the ball in play against lefties. Give me Skubal's Under.

Luis Castillo Under 5.5 Ks (+126) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Luis Castillo has struck out nearly 25% of batters this season. That's a solid rate. However, over the last 30 days, Castillo has only struck out 17.4% of batters. He's added just 11.1% of strikeouts against lefties and has earned just 22.4% of strikeouts against righties.

That's not ideal, especially going up against the Texas Rangers. While the Rangers haven't hit for power, the projected lineup has still struck out just 16.9% of the time against righties over the last month.

There's not a single batter in the Texas lineup that has struck out more than 21.3%.

Additionally, Castillo has alloweed a .171 ISO and wOBA of .315 to his last 121 batters. He's been far from perfect. At +126, I'll absolutely grab Castillo's Under.
