We got back on track somewhat in our Friday night prop betting picks and on Sunday Night Baseball I’m continuing my quest to get back in the black with one big play from Bovada sportsbook tonight.
Corey Seager has been very good against lefties this season, but he is up against a different monster this evening against Madison Bumgarner. Mad Bum has been fantastic this season since coming back from messing himself up doing some offseason motor sporting, but lefties have especially felt his wrath.
Lefties own a .235 wOBA against Bumgarner this season, and while that’s just 30 batters faced, over his career lefty hitters only own a .244 wOBA against him.
Seager has had some success against Bumgarner. He is 3-for-11 lifetime against the Giants’ southpaw, but he hasn’t done much with it. Part of Bumgarner’s success is his power and ability to prevent home runs.
Seager’s 18 bombs this season have been impressive, and even though his ISO goes up against left-handed pitching this season, his higher strikeout rate and lower walk rate against southpaws is going to hurt him against one of the game’s best lefties tonight.Free MLB Prop Pick: UNDER 2 ½ (-150)Best Line Offered: at Bovada
