The Boston Red Sox are a .500 team, but it’s always a big game when they face the Yankees in the AL East. Carlos Rodon will pitch against Cooper Criswell, and Boston is a hefty underdog at home. 

New York quickly took game one of the series and has a great chance to win against a Red Sox team that’s 16-20 at home. While this game has valuable traditional markets, we’re looking at props here and across the Saturday slate. Many bonuses are available on FanDuel through our exclusive link for new customers.

Best MLB Prop Bets This Weekend: Yankees vs. Red Sox (7:15 PM, EST)

Alex Verdugo 2+ Total Bases Total Bases (-110) at FanDuel

Alex Verdugo is a former Red Sox player who showed up big against his old team on Friday night. Verdugo is having a great season with the Yankees and continued to dominate in the season opener against Boston. 

Verdugo was 3-5 with a homer and four RBI. Aaron Judge typically leads the charge, but it was Verdugo at Fenway Park. We target players who are hot at the dish, and Verdugo is batting .302 in June. 

Verdugo thrives off right-handed pitching and will face a righty on Saturday night. Cooper Criswell will pitch for Boston and has been inconsistent over the past month. 

In his last start, he went 4.1 innings, allowing five hits and four runs to the White Sox. Chicago has the worst offense in baseball, so this isn’t a start to be proud of watching the tape.

Verdugo off RHP has a .281/.321/.469 slash line. His slash line off lefties is .219/.316/344, and he has five more homers and 27 extra RBI off righties compared to lefties.

Best MLB Prop Bets This Weekend: Royals vs. Dodgers (9:10 PM, EST)

Yoshinobu Yamamoto Under 6.5 Strikeouts (-138) at FanDuel

Yoshinobu Yamamoto has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season and is a Cy Young candidate. The Dodgers have gotten value from the big contract through the season's first few months. 

Yamamoto is 6-2 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. The pitcher has recorded 83 strikeouts in 72 innings of work. He has limited his walks this season and kept the ball in the yard. 

As good as Yamamoto has been this season, we’re leaning under on his strikeout prop against the Royals. Kansas City played Los Angeles hard on Friday, losing by a run in a low-scoring game. 

The Royals' offense has been competitive, and they’re very hard to strike out at the plate. Kansas City ranks third in least strikeouts per game, and they have been pesky at the dish.

Best MLB Prop Bets This Weekend: Phillies vs. Orioles 4:05 PM, EST)

Grayson Rodriguez Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-140) at FanDuel

Grayson Rodriguez has been hunting strikeouts in his recent starts. He has recorded at least six strikeouts in four of his last five games. His one miss came against the Blue Jays on a night when it was clear he didn’t have his best stuff.

Rodriguez’s strikeout line is listed at 5.5, and the over is -140. He has a strong fastball and excellent breaking pitches, so we give him a slight edge over the Phillies lineup. 

Philadelphia is an average strikeout team. Some nights, they give pitchers trouble. Our one fear about the over is that if Philadelphia has offensive success, it could cause Rodriguez to have a short night. However, we trust the pitcher to do what he has done over the past month.
