MLB Top 3: Hot "under" pitchers on the mound Saturday

Saturday's Major League Baseball action features three road aces that have trended heavily toward under totals.

Here is a look at three pitchers to consider if you're looking to play totals.

Hiroki Kuroda, New York Yankees (11-7, 2.33 ERA)


Kuroda has been the hottest pitcher in the American League over the past month and a half, surrendering just five earned runs over 48 innings in that span. Five of those outings have seen the 38-year-old leave without giving up a run, and he's on a streak of nine consecutive 'unders' dating back to the end of June.

The Yankees visit the Boston Red Sox on Saturday.

Stephen Strasburg, Washington Nationals (6-9, 2.83 ERA)

Wins continue to elude the former No. 1 pick, but he remains a boon for 'under' bettors. The 25-year-old is on a five-game 'under' streak, having surrendered just 10 runs in that span. His last outing was the best of all, as he went the distance on a four-hit shutout while striking out 10 in a win over Philadelphia.

The Nationals face the Braves in Atlanta on Saturday.

Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers (11-7, 1.88 ERA)

When you sport the major leagues' lowest ERA among qualified starters, you're going to be in plenty of low-scoring games. Such is the case for Kershaw, who has gone 'under' in seven of his last nine outings - registering a quality start in each of them, and going eight or more innings six times in that span.

The Dodgers travel to Philadelphia for a date with the Phillies on Saturday.

These guys are only half the equation. Remember, the other team pitches too. Go ahead and load up on Stras at 6.5 if you may.
