We split a pair of MLB Picks on Friday night, but we hit the one that mattered with +120 MLB Odds. So, after a modest profit on Friday night, let’s turn that into a bigger one here for Sunday Night Baseball. Player props are courtesy of Bovada sportsbook.

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

As talented and as dangerous of a hitter Kris Bryant is, he is up against another young fire-baller tonight in Michael Wacha (Cardinals vs Cubs). The Cardinals’ young righty has been turning up the heat on his pitching with the heat rising in St. Louis. He has won his last four starts in a row and has allowed only three earned runs over his last 26.2 innings.

Bryant, on the other hand, has been amazing all season and he’s been great this month. Plus, the sportsbooks are probably betting on the public looking at Wacha’s career splits against Bryant and then them taking the bait with a bet on the over at betting odds of +130.

However, with how well Wacha has pitched lately, the batter versus pitcher splits kind of go out the window. However, if you’re one who subscribes to the BvP theory, Wacha has struck out Bryant twice this season and he is 0-for-3 this year against Wacha. I could see that continuing on Sunday Night Baseball.

My MLB Prop Pick: UNDER 2 ½ (-160) @ Bovada


Will Addison Russell record a hit?

This is where we are going to make our money tonight. Addison Russell has been atrocious at Wrigley Field this season. He is hitting .162 at home over 142 plate appearances and going against Wacha is not going to help things.

Even though Russell has been better over the second half, his matchup and splits are working too hard against him. Even though it’s somewhat of a long shot play to bet him to go hitless tonight, it’s a calculated one. With +185 MLB Odds on the no for Russell, it is too good to pass up.

Russell and Wacha have 13 career appearances against one another, and Russell has collected three hits during that stretch. He has walked twice and struck out three times, but the best part is he doesn’t have a home run or an RBI in his lifetime against Wacha.

So, hopefully, Russell is in the lineup tonight and can go hitless for what would be a huge profit-boosting MLB pick for Sunday night.

My MLB Prop Pick: No (+185) @ Bovada
