MLB player prop bets: Friday, August 25th
Spencer Strider, over 8.5 strikeouts (-140)
Strider will face a familiar foe in the San Francisco Giants. He faced them a week ago and pitched seven shutout innings while allowing just one hit and striking out 10. Strider has become inconsistent with his punch-out numbers, but he should be able to tally at least 9 strikeouts on Friday.
Josh Rojas, over 0.5 hits (-160)
Rojas faced Kansas City starter Brady Singer on Monday, August 14. He finished with two hits in the game. Rojas heads into Friday’s matchup riding a four-game hitting streak. Given the matchup, he should be able to tally at least one base knock on Friday.
Sonny Gray, over 5.5 strikeouts (-135)
Gray will take on a struggling Texas Rangers team. They have lost seven consecutive games and are struggling to stay consistent at the plate. Gray has also struggled to stay consistent on the mound, but he has had a great month when it comes to striking out hitters. He has at least seven punchouts in four straight starts and should make it a fifth on Friday.
