Expert MLB Picks, Player Props Predictions & Vegas Odds

Huascar Ynoa Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-141, PointsBet)

Ynoa showed great strikeout chops before going on the IL earlier in the year. He will be facing a depleted Marlins lineup that was busy trading away their best players at the deadline. Ynoa is striking out 28% of the batters, and the Marlins are bottom of the league in strikeouts this year. The game will also take place in Miami where the park mitigates power and lets the pitcher go deeper in games. This is a great spot to lock in the over on a meager 5.5 strikeouts, even at -141 odds, according to the Awesemo MLB player prop betting tool.

Pete Alonso to Hit a Home Run (+500, BetMGM)

Alonso takes on Logan Webb in San Francisco. The park does not really matter for a power threat of Alonso’s caliber. Webb mitigates power by allowing a very low launch angle, but Alonso’s swing is perfect for lifting balls low in the zone over fences. He is one of the best power hitters in the majors, and locking him in at +500 odds even against a good pitcher is a good long-term bet.

Reynaldo Lopez Under 3.5 Strikeouts (-130, FanDuel)

Lopez is in a brutal spot facing an Athletics team that only has three batters with a strikeout rate over 20%. Lopez has had the stuff to dominate the majors but has never really put it together. This is not a spot to think that he should have any success. Oakland does not strike out and also has prodigious power up and down the lineup, even with the suspension of Ramon Laureano. The A’s have four batters in the middle of the lineup with barrel rates of over 10%. This should be a spot where this roster thrives against Lopez, and the under is one of the top picks from Awesemo’s MLB player prop betting tool.
