There are a ton of player props for this Wednesday as this day is jam-packed with MLB games all day long. This is great for the prop bettor as prop betting gives the bettor the edge if the bettor is selective. Let's proceed in pounding out some winners for the nightly games for the betting public.

Mariners vs. Tigers
Total Strikeouts For Anibal Sanchez
Over 6.5 EV
Under 6.5 -130
Sanchez is a good pitcher that has been very inconsistent this season. Although the Tigers have underperformed this season, it has nothing to do with Sanchez underperforming.

One thing about Sanchez is that he will give the Tigers innings each and every start. That would lead me to believe that his strikeout total would be high, but lately it hasn't. In his last 3 starts, he's failed to eclipse the 5 strikeout mark. If you go past that period of time, the games in which he throws more than 6.5 strikeouts, he barely eclipses the mark at 7. Take the under.

MLB Pick- Under 6.5 -130

Here you can find our MLB Picks of the Day

Red Sox vs. Astros
Most Hits, Runs, and RBI's
Colby Rasmus -115
Dustin Pedroia -115
I totally look at Pedroia as a leader. His statistics will never tell the story. If you look at his stats lately, you'll hop aboard the Rasmus Train as Pedroia is 0 for his last 21. He's as cold as ice and on a lousy team,

Rasmus, who is on a much better team and that could have an effect on this prop, is 2 for his last 9 at-bats, but has homered within that period of time. Off of Pedroia's poor play alone, the bettor is FORCED to take Colby Rasmus and if they don't they have money to burn.

MLB Pick- Colby Rasmus -115

Pirates vs. Royals
Total Strikeouts For Charlie Morton

Over 3 +120
Under 3 -150

This is a super low number and although Morton isn't a strikeout pitcher, he's capable of eclipsing the 3 mark or at least pushing where this prop is concerned. In his last 4 starts, Morton has reached 3 strikeouts with his last game going under the total at 2. I'm going to take a small risk and look for him to eclipse or push the prop total. 3 is a very low number and not asking much as Morton is a Major League pitcher.

MLB Pick- Over 3 +120


Total Strikeouts For Edinson Volquez
Over 4.5 -140
Under 4.5 +110
Volquez has had some low strikeout totals as of late, but he's on a great team and has pitched well. This means that he'll be in the game for a longer period of time and that will enable him to strike out more players.

For the season, he's pitched 112 innings and has 83 strikeouts. That's more than 4.5 strikeouts per 9 innings. This prop comes down to how many innings that he pitches and can he bounce back from 2 low performances where "K's" are concerned? This is a toss up but I dislike the MLB odds on the over. Take the under, but make this a small bet.

MLB Pick- Under 4.5 +110

Marlins vs. Diamondbacks
Will Jake Lamb Record a Hit? Yes -150... No +120
Lamb is a 50/50 proposition to record a hit as he's recorded a hit in 5 out of his last 10 games. The opposing pitcher could come into play as Jose Fernandez is a top-flight pitcher. I'm willing to take my chances on the "no" option as Lamb is far from a good Major League hitter.

MLB Pick- No +120 at Bovada
