I always say a good way to supplement your pending bets is with the MLB Player Props as the bettor has the edge when being selective. We have found the best ones sportsbooks are offering.

Indians vs. Twins: Will Joe Mauer Score a Run?

Yes +140..No -185
The Minnesota Twins are starting to see the American League Central Division slip away as the Kansas City Royals are starting to run away with the division, leading by double figure games.

Most of the time, this prop would be an easy "no", but Joe Mauer has consistently been getting on base and making things happen. He's hit safely in his last 7 games and has had a run in 5 out of his last 7 games. Mauer is even hitting for power and this is something that we're not used to. I'm going to take the price as Mauer faces a weak Cleveland Indians club and I can see him continue the trend of scroing for the Twins.

MLB Prop Pick- Yes +140

 

Marlins vs. Cardinals: Will Jason Heyward Record an RBI?

Yes +150...No-  -200
Heyward only has 9 HR and 40 in 111 games and I can definitely see why the Braves got rid of him. He has only recorded an RBI in 3 of his last 10 games and is not someone to have a ton of confidence in.

Although the pitching matchup is favorable and Heyward plays on a top-notch team in the St. Louis Cardinals, the MLB odds are favorable for the "no" option considering this is Jason Heyward  that we're talking about. Of course it's also possible that he can pick an RBI, but it's certainly not likely and the "no" option is the easy answer.

MLB Prop Pick- No -200


Nationals vs. Giants: Total Strikeouts For Gio Gonzalez

Over 5.5 +140...Under 5.5 -185
The yes option stands out like a sore thumb. Although the San Francisco Giants contain a deep lineup of contact hitters, Gonzalez has been consistently eclipsing the 5.5 K mark. In his 3 games, Gio has had 6,7, and 6 strikeouts against quality teams. The hook (the .5 strikeout) is the only thing that I'm concerned about , but the Nats are in desparation mode as the Mets are starting to build a large lead on them in the National League East Division. Look for Gonzalez to be competitive tonight and that means striking out 6 San Francisco batters 6 or more times.

MLB Prop Pick- Over 5.5 +140

 

Padres vs. Rockies: Will Nolan Arenado Score a Run?

Yes +115...No -125
Odds makers are showing a major amount of respect for Arenado as he's having a monster season. There's one thing that separates Arenado from other Rockies players and that is that he's a good hitter on the road as well as Coors Field.  He won't have to worry here as he faces the San Diego Padres at home and he's homered in each of his last 2 games. Coors Field is the deciding factor here despite Andrew Cashner pitching. Yes is the MLB pick . Nolan Arenado will score a run against the disappointing San Diego Padres.

MLB Prop Pick- Yes +115
