It’s been a rough and tumble few weeks of our MLB Props, but the holiday is here and while some of you are enjoying time on the lake or BBQ-ing in the backyard, I am trying to find you valuable prop picks from Bovada sportsbook!

 

<p style="text-align:right"><em><strong>Season MLB Props Record: 29-38-2 (-12.1 units)</strong></em></p><h2><strong>More Runs, Hits and RBIs – Avisail Garcia vs. Francisco Lindor</strong></h2><p>One of several afternoon games on <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/mlb-baseball/">Monday is the White Sox and Indians, </a>with Trevor Bauer heading into Chicago to face off against James Shields.  While the White Sox’s right-hander has been solid, but not great lately, Bauer has been finding his groove in the month of August.</p><p>However, now the calendar has turned to September, and one hitter who I think is about to heat up for the Tribe is Francisco Lindor. He homered in his last game and while Jose Ramirez is getting a lot of the credit for the Indians’ success lately, Lindor hitting at the top of the order has a lot to do with it. Plus, Lindor has really hit well in his limited appearances against Shields in his career. Lindor is 3-for-4 with a home run, 2 RBIs and a walk. If he has that kind of success again this afternoon, he is going to beat out Avisail Garcia in this prop.</p><p>Garcia has been a monster at the plate lately, but while he crushed lefties, he comes back down to earth against right-handed pitching. Garcia owns a solid .347 wOBA against right-handers, but his BABIP drops a lot against righties and his slugging percentage drops some as well.</p><p>Bauer has held right-handers to a .319 wOBA this season, and they have a strikeout rate against Bauer of more than 28 percent. If Bauer is on his game this afternoon, I like him to slow down Garcia and get Lindor to win this prop.</p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Free MLB Pick:  </strong>Lindor -140</h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Best Line Offered: <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4496&amp;book=BOVADA" rel="nofollow">Bovada</a></h2>
