Sunday Night Baseball is a prime matchup between the Tigers and Indians, and I am back to release by two best prop betting picks from Bovada sportsbook to try and get back in the black heading into the All Star Break.

Corey Kluber O/U 9 ½ strikeouts

Corey Kluber has been a monster over the last month and a half. He has posted double-digit strikeouts in five straight starts and in six of his last seven as well.

However, now he is up against the Tigers, a team he has struggled against this season. He gave up 11 runs in those two starts and in neither did he have huge strikeout numbers. I don’t thin the Tigers are going to plant five runs on Kluber tonight by any means, but I do think Detroit will limit their strikeouts and keep Kluber under 10.

The Tigers rank right in the middle of the league in strikeout rate this season, as just under 22 percent. However, with talented right-handed hitters that don’t strikeout a lot, I think the under is secure here. The number has been inflated so much over the last month of his starts because of his high strikeout totals.

Even though Kluber posts better numbers at home, I think the Tigers are his kryptonite so far this season. Even though I doubt they get more than a couple of runs, look for only eight or nine strikeouts from Kluber for your prop picks tonight.

My MLB Props Pick: UNDER 9 ½ (-115) Prop Lines @ Bovada


Jose Ramirez O/U 2 runs, hits, and RBI

Jose Ramirez is the hero of the Indians’ lineup this season and he is about to win over you all as well. He is hitting a smooth .406 in the month of July so far and right now he only has a total of 2 runs, hits and RBI from Bovada tonight.

I am all over the over for this one and it’s simply because the juice is reasonable and I’m tailing a red-hot hitter into a national stage on Sunday. Ramirez is also coming off an 0-for-3 night on Saturday, which ruined what could have been a 10-game hitting streak.

You know Ramirez will want to come back from that tonight against righty Michael Fulmer. Even with Fulmer pitching very well, Ramirez has been so good this season, it’s hard to see him not getting 3 runs, hits and RBI tonight. As long as guys are getting on base ahead of Ramirez, and Kluber is taking care if business on his end, I like Ramirez’s chances in this one and the betting lines are at a nice price.

My MLB Props Pick:  OVER 2 (-130) Prop Lines @ Bovada
