Best MLB player prop for Thursday's MLB slate: Keller to beach Mariners
We’re staying up late tonight, people. Why? Because the Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners are getting it on at 10:10pm ET. The man, the myth, the legend, Brad Keller, is on the bump and I don’t miss a Brad Keller game. He’s my guy. He’s always an electric MLB player prop and lately there is only one way to play this guy. I think you all know where I’m going with this.

Brad Keller over 4.5 strikeouts (-125)
Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.
The books never really agree on MLB player props and that hasn’t changed today. We can go two ways with Keller tonight. Over at DraftKings he’s at 4.5 for the low, low price of -125. That’s priced to move if I’ve ever seen it. If it’s a plus moneyline you want, head over to FanDuel and get him at 5.5 for +124. I’m going with DraftKings but you do you.
I can’t say enough good things about our boy Brad. Over his last 3 starts, he has hit this number every time. In the last 2, he fanned 8 in each. He looks like a man on a mission lately and I’m here for it. He’s highly likely to flirt with 100 pitches thrown tonight and given his opponent, that means whiffs.
The Seattle Mariners have emerged recently as a team to target in the strikeout market. These guys look like they’re blindfolded at times. Over the last week, only two teams have struck out more than they have. Both of those teams have played one more game. In that span the Mariners have fanned at a 30+% clip and if they do that tonight, Keller will feast. This is my favorite MLB player prop for Thursday.
