MLB Games on Friday May 1st
With 15 games to choose from, there will be plenty of player props to wager on Saturday May 1, 2021. Check out our top three picks below before you place your bets today!
DJ LeMahieu to record 2+ hits
Detroits Spencer Turnbell has a 0.82 WHIP through 2 starts this season, but both were at home and he allowed a hit per inning over 6 road starts in 2020. DJ LeMahieu is 2-3 with a double and an RBI against Turnbell in his career. DJ has had 2 hits in 2 of the last 4 games and will also face a Detroit bullpen that has the second-worst opponents’ batting average in the majors, at .278.
Patrick Corbin Under 6.5 Strikeouts
Washington’s Patrick Corbin has not recorded more than 5 strikeouts in a start this season. Corbin has a 7.7 K/9 in 2021. He has only made it past the 5th inning once in four starts and has allowed a .279 career average to this Marlins lineup. Miami has struck out in 29% of their at bats this season, so the averages indicate the under is the play.
Yermin Mercedes Over 0.5 hits
You may have to lay a little juice with this one, but it’s as close to a sure thing as you can get. The White Sox’ Mercedes has a hit in 6 straight, and 12 of the last 13 games. Chicago will face the Indians, who will start Triston Mckenzie. He has allowed just under a hit per inning in 4 starts this season, and Mercedes will have some reps under his belt after going 0-2 the last time they faced. With a scorching .415 average to start the year, I like Yermin to keep the streak going on Saturday.
