My name is Matt Williams, and I am going to be covering weekend MLB best bets and props all season long. Be sure to follow me on Twitter/X @MattWi77iams.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Colorado Rockies 

9:10 pm ET

Aaron Nola’s strikeout line seems suspiciously low for this match versus Colorado. 

For starters, Nola already collected nine strikeouts against this lineup earlier in the season. The Phillies right-hander boasts a 31.1% chase rate, while the Rockies carry the second-worst chase rate in baseball.

In addition, Colorado has a 25.9% strikeout rate this year against RHP and struggles against curveballs, which Nola throws over 30% of the time.

I absolutely love Nola to cruise past 5.5 K on Saturday. In fact, I am going to ladder this prop up to eight punchouts.

MLB Best Bet: Aaron Nola o5.5 K (-135)

Seattle Mariners vs Washington Nationals

4:05 pm ET

Logan Gilbert is one of the most dependable starting pitchers this season for Outs props. 

The Mariners right-hander is Over 17.5 Outs in eight of his 10 outings and averages the 13th-lowest pitches per plate appearance (3.7).

On Saturday Gilbert will square off against the Nationals. Over the past two weeks, Washington is batting .206 with a .288 on-base percentage and 3% barrel per plate appearance versus RHP.

I expect Gilbert to pitch deep into this game, making his Outs prop a solid investment.

MLB Best Bet: Logan Gilbert o17.5 Outs (-135)

Seattle Mariners vs Washington Nationals

4:05 pm ET

While the Nationals may rank near the bottom of the league in pitches per plate appearance, the Mariners actually lead the league (4.05).

This is bad news for Trevor Williams, who has thrown 81 pitches or less in seven of his nine starts this season.

Add in a well-rested Nationals bullpen and you have a rock-solid recipe to cook up the Under.

MLB Best Bet: Trevor Williams u15.5 Outs (-120)
