MLB PrizePicks: Brandon Marsh One of Best Entry Options on 6-Pick Card (April 28)

With all the action going on in the sports world this weekend, it may be hard for bettors to find some of the best value on the board. But the packed 14-game MLB slate offers plenty of opportunities for value in MLB PrizePicks. Using OddsShopper’s PrizePicks builder, let’s take a look at six top MLB plays for readers to capitalize on, including one Brandon Marsh pick.

Top MLB PrizePicks Plays: Brandon Marsh to Stay Hot

Brandon Marsh Over 0.5 Total Bases

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh is getting off to a hot start to his 2023 campaign, ranking seventh in the entire league with a .338 batting average and third with a 1.096 OPS. Marsh had a five-game hitting streak snapped in the 1-0 win over the Settle Mariners on Thursday, but it was just the fifth time all season long that he failed to record a hit.

Although the Phillies have a tough test against Houston Astros ace Framber Valdez on Friday, OddsShopper models are high on Marsh to pull through with a hit.

Patrick Wisdom Over 0.5 Total Bases

Chicago Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom is already proving to be one of the more dangerous power hitters in the league, belting nine with a few games still to play in the first month. While Wisdom also swings and misses at a high clip, he has been significantly better against left-handers over the course of his career. Widom will face off against Marlins lefty Jesus Luzardo Friday, making his over a high-value on the board.

Jack Flaherty Under 5.5 Strikeouts

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitchers have struggled mightily out of the gates, but Jack Flaherty has been a diamond in the rough for the rotation, pitching to a respectable 3.29 ERA in 27.1 innings. However, Flaherty’s 5.18 FIP suggests regression is coming, and he has a tough matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday.

Models give Flaherty a 56% chance of coming in under 5.5 strikeouts, making this play among the best MLB PrizePicks for Friday night.

Mike Trout Under 1.5 Bases

It is never an easy thing to do to fade Mike Trout, but PrizePicks has this line set too high for the future Hall of Famer. Trout enters Friday night’s showdown with the Milwaukee Brewers after going just 4-19 at the dish in a four-game series against the lowly Oakland A’s.

Trout will now be going up against a Brewers team that excels in the pitching department. Friday night’s Brewers starter, Wade Miley, has been especially impressive thus far, going 3-1 with a 1.96 ERA in his first five starts with his new team. Look for Trout to continue his struggles, making the under an unexpectedly strong play.

Jose Barrero Over 0.5 Bases

Cincinnati Reds infield prospect Jose Barrero has been a big name in the team’s organization but has yet to really find his footing in the bigs. Barrero is currently slashing just .217/.304/.300 this season, but he has a solid chance of breaking through against a terrible Oakland A’s team this weekend.

The A’s have yet to name a starting pitcher for Friday night’s tilt but should lean on their bullpen (that has a league-worst. 6.75 ERA). Simply put: if Barrero can’t find a way to get a knock in this one, when will he? OddsShopper models give Barrero a 54% chance of getting over 0.5 bases, making the over a solid leg to add on PrizePicks.

Shane Bieber Over 4.5 Strikeouts

The Guardians will hand the ball to star pitcher Shane Bieber on Friday night to kick off their series against the Boston Red Sox. Although Bieber has just 22 strikeouts in his five starts this year, there is plenty of reason to believe he will be back to missing bats at the elite clip he was doing so last year.

Bieber finished 12th in the MLB with 198 strikeouts last season and still possesses the stuff that gives him a solid chance of putting away even the best contact hitters in the game. OddsShopper models expect Bieber to cruise over this total, making it a solid last leg to throw in our Prizepicks play.

Putting together these six legs to create an MLB Prizepicks play gives readers a 25X payout if it hits. The PrizePicks builder gives this just a 2% chance of hitting, but the value makes for a high ROI of 9%.
