Our best gamer accessories, including picks for Logan Gilbert and Julio Rodriguez

Saturday’s MLB slate features 17 games, which means there are plenty of props for players to enjoy at all levels.

Player paraphernalia has become some of the most popular bets in the industry, but as the number of states with legalized gambling grows, some may feel left behind.

Enter PrizePicks.

With PrizePicks, you have the option of essentially betting over/under game fixtures with cash payouts based on the number of vouchers you get on the slate of the day.

So, let’s take a look at some of the options on Saturday’s Major League Baseball slate and see where we can find value to turn a profit.

A quick refresher if you’re unfamiliar with PrizePicks: you can combine up to five different O/U player accessories to pay out up to 10x your stake.

You can do a Flex Play or a Power Play. Flexible play gives you fewer chances, but you can win money even if you don’t get all the picks right. Meanwhile, a Power Play is similar to a parlay – it’s all or nothing.

Here’s how I would approach today’s MLB slate.

MLB PrizePicks plays for Saturday, May 28

We have Game 2 of this three-game AL West series as the Seattle Mariners host the Houston Astros.

Right-hander Logan Gilbert has been an emerging star for the Mariners this season, going 4-2 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in nine starts.

Gilbert has now surpassed that fantastic total in eight of his nine starts this season (89%), as he racks up strikeouts while rarely giving up more than three earned runs. I believe we get great value in that number due to the fact that Gilbert was rocked in his only outing against the Astros last season.

That being said, Gilbert has improved tremendously since then and should be supported until he shows signs of regression.

I’m also supporting a few Mariners hitters in this game, as they’re expected to face right-hander Jose Urquidy. With eight starts this season, Urquidy boasts a 4.24 ERA and 1.41 WHIP.

His metrics are even worse, as Urquidy has a .401 xwOBA, .315 xBA, and .622 xSLG. In his only start against the Mariners this season, Urquidy got bombed, allowing six runs on eight hits in four innings pitched.

France homered in that game and added a single as they passed that total.

The other Mariners hitter I’m supporting in this game is Julio Rodriguez. Going back to the game against Urquidy earlier this season, Rodriguez also surpassed his fantastic scoring total, going 1-4 with a single, a run scored and an RBI.

We could see an even better performance from Rodriguez this time around as he generated a .653 xBA, .865 xSLG and .650 xwOBA in this game. Rodriguez has been on fire lately, making three of his last four games and should be a strong candidate for continued success in this outing.

In Game 2 of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Washington Nationals, right-hander Chad Kuhl is expected to take the mound for the Colorado Rockies.

This total is too high for a pitcher who usually doesn’t go far in plays and isn’t a batting artist.

Kuhl has failed to surpass that total in each of his last three starts and could be a good candidate for a fade again. The Nationals have been much better against right-handed pitchers this season, as 11 of their 16 wins have come against right-handers and they rank third in the league in BA against right-handers.

In his last two starts against Washington, Kuhl is 0-2 and allowed 10 earned runs.

As I obliterate the starting pitcher from Colorado in Game 2 of Saturday’s doubleheader, I’m also supporting the starting pitcher from Washington. I think we’re getting great value in that number because of Adon’s poor stats at box level this season.

After nine starts, Adon boasts a 6.97 ERA and a 1.718 WHIP. While those numbers are obviously terrible, they’re significantly inflated due to his last start against the Dodgers in which he allowed six runs on seven hits in 4.2 innings.

Plus, the Rockies have never faced Adon before, and it might take a few rounds to figure that out.
