Welcome to our newest series of the Player Props of the day! I will wind you through the afternoon prop odds from Bovada sportsbook in search of the best MLB Odds to cash you some winning tickets on Monday night. 

Cardinals O/U 4 ½ runs

So far this season Asher Wojciechowski has not looked good against big league hitters. He gave up four earned runs in four innings in his last start against the Blue Jays and now he faces a pissed off Cardinals team that should have avoided being swept last night on national television.

Great American Ball Park is notoriously a hitters’ park and despite this the sportsbooks have the Cardinals at 4 ½ runs with the over at -140. There has already been some betting on this end and I am following it too.

The Cards’ offense destroyed Kyle Hendricks last night and while they have been slumping some, heading to Cincinnati for the first time this year should help the bats after a big offensive night on Sunday.

Last season the Cardinals averaged 4.33 runs per game in nine contests in Cincinnati last year and they have a better offense this season even with Dexter Fowler not playing well. However, playing against a young pitcher and motivated after getting swept by their rivals should keep the Redbirds’ bats going tonight.

Kris Bryant O/U 2 ½ runs, hits and RBI’s

Dan Straily has been a monster this season in his first season in Miami. However, Kris Bryant is a blue-chip stud and while he hasn’t hit as well at home this season, he has hit a bunch of home runs at Wrigley Field.

In fact he has nine of them over just 126 plate appearances at home this season. He has 60 runs, hits and RBI’s at home this season and that is an average of almost one out of every two at bats at home.

Following that trend, we have a very good floor for Bryant tonight assuming he is in the middle of the order as usual.

It’s also nice to know that although the sample size is small and it was when Straily was struggling some as a younger pitcher,  Bryant has owned the 28 year-old righty. In seven career plate appearances against the righty, Bryant has a double, two home runs and six RBI’s.

I like out chances of making Straily our bitch tonight through Bryant. Even though 2 ½ runs, hits and RBI’s would mark a banner day for Bryant, the best part about this play is the payoff from Bovada. You can get MLB Odds of +120 on the over, making this one a play of the day.
