MLB Best Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks

J.A. Happ OVER 4.5 Strikeouts (+105, BetMGM) — 29% ROI

This is a painful pick. Happ is one of the weakest starting pitchers in baseball over the course of the season. The good news is that he has improved since getting traded. Happ is producing slightly better results with the Cardinals, and his strikeouts prop remains low. He has allowed two runs or fewer in four consecutive starts and draws a good matchup today. The Pirates have an 82 wRC+ against left-handed pitching, and Happ registered eight strikeouts when he faced them last week.

Wade Miley OVER 4.5 Strikeouts (-130, BetMGM) — 24% ROI

Miley is typically a pitch to contact guy. He only has an 18.7% strikeout rate for the season, but it is tough to ignore this matchup. Miley’s prop sits at just 4.5 strikeouts against the Marlins. Miami has a league-worst 28.1% strikeout rate against southpaws. There is not even another team with a strikeout rate against lefties over 26.5%. Miley should also benefit from the park upgrade. This game is in Miami, which is home to one of the most pitcher-friendly parks in baseball.

Franmil Reyes to Hit a Home Run (+490, PointsBet) — 44% ROI

Cleveland went off last night. The team scored 10 runs, powered by three homers. Reyes did not hit a home run, but he did rack up three hits and a double. For the year, his power numbers look great and he has 23 homers. This includes a recent stretch with three homers in his last seven games. The MLB Player Prop Tool likes this power surge to continue since he has the best ROI of any home run prop on the board.
