MLB player prop bets for Saturday, April 9

Mark Canha, OVER 0.5 total bases (-155)

New York Mets leftfielder Mark Canha is seeing the ball well early on. He has just 6 official at-bats over the first two games of the season, and he has 4 hits with 3 walks. Canha should find a way to get on base going up against Washington Nationals pitcher Joan Adon, who has just one start in his career.

Brandon Woodruff, Under 6.5 strikeouts (-145)

The Milwaukee Brewers have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball, and Brandon Woodruff is a big reason for that, but he will not reach 7 strikeouts against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday afternoon. He typically will not throw more than 6 innings in a start especially with everybody available in the bullpen early on in the season. Woodruff will get close to this number, but he may not face enough batters for a great chance at a big strikeout total.

Freddie Freeman, OVER 0.5 RBIs (+105)

The Los Angeles Dodgers prized free agent signing should be in a solid position to drive in at least a run. The Dodgers will play in the high elevation of Coors Field with a matchup with the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. He should be able to take advantage of where he’s playing and hitting behind Mookie Betts.
