There's not a ton of player props available with the split schedule today, but there's still enough available to put some money in your pockets. Let's get to it with our MLB picks.

Yankees vs. Rangers
Will Alex Rodriguez Record and RBI? Yes -EV... No -140
We've went over the mathematics of this already. The odds are against the bettor as an RBI per game would be 162 RBI's in a season and there's nobody reaching that level this season.

However, if you get a hot team such as the New York Yankees, the odds become lesser. Just as the Yankees have been tearing the cover off the baseball, so has A-Rod. Alex has been very productive lately. In his last 7 games, he has an RBI or more in 5 of them. In his last 3 games, he's had an RBI in each game. This can be attributed to the Yankees offense. I'm going to take the appealing odds and say that A-Rod does some more damage.

MLB Pick- Yes -EV

Here you can find our Top MLB Over/Unders of the Day

Reds vs. Cardinals
Total Strikeouts For John Lackey

Over 4.5 -140
Under 4.5 EV
Lackey has been a major contributor in the Cardinals being a division leader, but he's not overpowering where strikeouts are concerned. This is a prop that can go either way. In cases like this, I look at the odds and the opponent and weigh my options. Lackey plays the Reds and he consistently goes deep into games. The more innings pitched, the more opportunity for K's. Something is telling me to fade the over and take the price on this hot summer day with hitters such as Joey Votto facing Lackey.

MLB Pick- Under 4.5 -EV

 

Will Jhonny Peralta Record a Hit? Yes -275... No +190
Peralta not getting the respect by odds makers and I'm actually surprised that he got this much respect as he's 0 for his last 12. It's very possible that he might get a hit, but he's facing decent pitching and it's too much of a risk to lay this amount of juice on a player that hasn't picked up a hit in his last 4 games.

MLB Pick- No +190

Athletics vs. Dodgers
Will Howie Kendrick Record a Hit? Yes -300... No +235
Kendrick has tailed off a bit as of late, going 3 for his last 21 at bats. He did however pick up 2 hits yesterday against the A's and with the announcement that Clayton Kershaw is scratched, the Dodgers will certainly need more offense. The MLB odds are steep and the deciding factor here. No way I can lay -300 on a player that's 3 for 21.

MLB Pick- No +235 - (Make this a small bet as Kendrick is certainly capable of producing a hit) at Bovada
