Game 1 of the World Series was the first that needed extra innings this postseason, and the Arizona Diamondbacks will look to even the series with the Texas Rangers on Saturday, as we share our top Diamondbacks vs. Rangers player props for Game 2 based on the best MLB odds from our best sports betting apps.

Just seven players between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers combined had logged World Series experience prior to Game 1, and only one had appeared in more than five World Series games (Corey Seager, 13).

But you sure wouldn't know it based on the number of players who stepped up during the Game 1 thriller that featured five stolen bases and three home runs, including Seager’s ninth-inning, game-tying home run and Adolis Garcia's 11th-inning, walk-off bomb.

Here are our best Diamondbacks-Rangers MLB player prop picks for World Series Game 2 (odds via our best MLB betting sites; Pick confidence is based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Diamondbacks vs. Rangers MLB player props: World Series Game 2

Adolis Garcia Over 0.5 RBIs (+105 via DraftKings, BetMGM) ⭐⭐⭐

We're enthusiastic about supporting the favorable odds for a player who has achieved a record-breaking 22 RBIs in the current playoffs, marking the highest tally ever recorded in a single postseason, which makes the bet especially enticing.

Garcia followed up a .934 OPS in September with a 1.102 OPS and a .354/.400/.804 slash line through 13 postseason games. He's absolutely on fire with eight hits across his last 10 postseason at-bats while reaching base in 10 of 12 plate appearances and logging four home runs, 11 RBIs, and four runs scored.

Garcia picked up right where he left off in the ALCS when he cranked five home runs, produced 15 RBIs (the most in MLB history for a single postseason series), and amassed a 1.293 OPS en route to MVP honors. The only thing keeping this from being a more confident four-star play is that the Diamondbacks might be wise to pitch around him and not allow Garcia to do much damage after Friday night's heroics.

DraftKings and BetMGM offer the best value for Garcia to drive in a run, as FanDuel, Caesars, and bet365 are lower at +100 odds.

Jordan Montgomery to record a win (+210 via bet365) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

One always needs to be cautious of backing starting pitchers to earn victories during the postseason, as managers tend to get more trigger-happy while pulling their starters earlier. However, Bruce Bochy is more of an old-school manager in that regard, and Montgomery is averaging 88.2 pitches per postseason start while registering two quality outings and three wins over four appearances.

Montgomery has posted a 2.62 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in his 92 2/3 innings as a Ranger. He faces a Diamondbacks lineup that ranked 21st or worse in wRC+ (92), BABIP (.292), and OPS (.710) during the regular season.

This is a four-star play, as an offense with a regular-season OPS that was 107 points higher at Globe Life Field than on the road while hitting 53 more home runs in the Rangers' home park backs Montgomery. Additionally, Texas is 32-13 (.711, 15.7% ROI) after a home win in 2023, the best mark in MLB, according to Inside Edge. We therefore like Montgomery’s chances of recording a win, and not making this game turn into a battle of the bullpens.

The +210 odds at bet365 offer much better value than the +184 and +200 prices at Caesars and DraftKings, respectively.

Corbin Carroll Over 0.5 stolen bases (+300 via bet365) ⭐⭐⭐

Corbin Carroll became the first rookie with 25 home runs and 50 stolen bases in 2023. And in the team’s most important outing of the season to date (Game 7 of the NLCS), he became the second-youngest in playoff history with three-plus hits and two-plus stolen bases in a game. That feat also made Carroll the sixth player with three-plus hits in a winner-take-all game and the fifth to steal two-plus bases in a playoff contest.

The Diamondbacks have now swiped four bases in three consecutive games. Expect the track meet to continue against Montgomery, as base-stealers were successful on 13 of 14 attempts against him in 2023. The southpaw has posted a 24% caught-stealing percentage in his career, and we expect Carroll to be on base often in this game after batting .283 against lefties (only slightly worse than his .286 average against right-handed pitching).

FanDuel is the lowest of our best sportsbooks for this prop at +225 odds, making the +300 found at bet365 all the more enticing.
