Capper Catalano's MLB picks on the Money Line are already in, but let's supplement our incomes with some MLB Betting Props. There are several nice opportunities to make some fast cash. Let's get to it!
Nationals vs. Phillies Player Props: Total Strikeouts For Steven Strasburg
Over 5.5 -130...Under 5.5 -EV
Thus far, due to injuries and lack of quality pitching, Strasburg has not lived up to expectations. That said, he get's a favorable matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies to pad his statistics.Strasburg is a very inconsistent pitcher where the strikeout is concern, therefore we're going to follow the odds makers lead and look at who he's playing. Over is the bet.
MLB Baseball Proposition Bet- Over 5.5 -130
Rangers vs. Blue Jays: Most Hits, Runs, and RBI's
Edwin Enacarnacion -115...Adrian Beltre -115
This is a slam dunk for EE as he's on a four game hitting streak and more important than that, has been producing the power numbers. In his last 4 games, Encarancion is 6 for 14 with 3 HR and 6 RBI. I can't even remember the last time that Beltre knocked in a run. Power is very important in this prop where RBI's are concerned and Encarnacion has simply been the better player as of late.This is an easy MLB pick in favor of EE.
MLB Baseball Proposition Bet: Edwin Encarancion -115
Will Edwin Encarancion Record a Hit?
Yes -200...No - +160
He's not a great hitter for average, but Encarnacion has been on point as of late with the statistics that I previously had mentioned. I've noticed one thing with him when watching Blue Jays game. A lot of power is generated from the time that the ball hits his bat to it's destination. Let's stop beating around the bush. Yes is the answer for the prop.
MLB Baseball Proposition Bet: Yes -200
Indians vs. Orioles: Will Michael Brantley Record a Hit?
Yes -250...No +195
While the MLB odds for no are certainly tempting, I wouldn't bet against Brantley, who get's a matchup against a struggling pitcher in Chris Tillman. Brantley also has gotten an extra day off due to the rain and has hit safely in 7 of his last 10 games. While odds makers have taken the betting odds to the extreme, yes is the play, but make it a very light play.
MLB Baseball Proposition Bet: Yes -250
Yankees vs. Astros: Total Hits, Runs, and RBI's For Brian McCann
Over 2 -115... Under 2 -115
Due to the fact that there's no hook (where the number is a half- example : 2.5), I like this prop as it's a safer player. Let's also not forget that the Yankees offense has been on fire as of late. They outscored Houston 9-6 yesterday thanks to a McCann grand slam. Brian McCann is really starting to feel comfortable in pinstripes as he's hit 3 HR and 9 RBI in his last 7 games. These are numbers that can't be ignored. While he had a poor introductory season as a Yankee last season, this season, he's been spectacular. 2 isn't a high number considering that McCann is a power catcher. Over is the play.
