We did very well with our MLB Player Betting Props yesterday. Let's see if we can continue the trend for Tuesday and a put a little extra cash in our reader's pockets with the picks that are provided.

Athletics vs. Blue Jays
How Many Strikeouts Will Drew Hutchison Record?
Over 4 -190
Under 4 +145
The Drew Hutchison Rule is in full effect. When he plays on the road, he can't get a player out, nearing a 9.00 ERA. When he's at home, it's a different story as he possesses under a 3.00 ERA.

Tonight he's at home and against a weak hitting Athletics team. The MLB odds are high, but for good reason. In the month of June and early July, Hutchison was throwing a tremendous amount of strikeouts. Lately he has simmered down. The deciding factor in this game is his opponent as the prop total is fairly low. Take the over with your MLB picks.

MLB Pick- Over 4 -190

Here you Can Find our MLB Picks of the Day

Rockies vs. Mets 
Total Strikeouts For Matt Harvey
Over 6 -135
Under 6 -105
We might get this Mets game in after all as the sky is sunny and the weather forecaster is incorrect. Harvey has been pitching 7 innings in each of his last 5 games and that should be a sufficient amount of time to throw more than 6 strikeouts as he faces the Colorado Rockies. In his last 2 games, he's averaging 7.5 strikeouts. Although he's not completely back to full form, I see Harvey dominating tonight. Over appears to be the play as 6K is attainable for a player the caliber of Matt Harvey.

MLB Pick- Over 6 -135

Angels vs. White Sox
Will Mike Trout Score A Run? Yes +120... No -160
I'm going to have to agree with the oddsmakers on this one. The Angels got beat up by Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox yesterday and in order to score a run, Trout might need his teammates to cooperate. I don't know if I see that happening as Trout has been held scoreless in his last 3 games. Make this a small bet because we're talking about the best player in the game, but no is the viable option in this prop.

MLB Pick- No -160

Rangers vs. Twins
Will Joe Mauer Record a Hit? Yes -280... No +200
Mauer is an interesting case as I think he's one of those players that might have done PED's and not gotten caught. At this point in his career, the power isn't there. He's strictly a single and doubles hitter.

This is a guy that won a batting title and is more than capable of getting a hit in a game. We look at his most recent statistics and they look good. He homered a couple of games back and has hit safely in his last 3 games. Mauer faces Yovani Gallardo, and although Gallardo is no slouch, neither is Joe Mauer. I like the yes option despite laying a ton of juice. Joe Mauer should manage at least one hit in tonight's game. 

MLB Pick- Yes -280 at Bovada
