It’s a full slate of MLB games on Tuesday, and there's still plenty of value in terms of player people that can make you money. Let’s take a look at some of the best MLB player prop bets and their odds.
Aaron Judge Under 0.5 Hits (+175)
When betting on player props, finding value is always the most important and that is the case with this Aaron Judge bet. Zack Greinke has no doubt struggled at times this year, but he has just the type of stuff that Aaron Judge struggles to hit against. Judge didn’t get a hit in his last game, and that will happen again. With the value sitting at +175, it’s just too much to pass up. Look for Aaron Judge to fail to get a hit and for the +175 to cash.
Kyle Hendricks Under 4.5 strikeouts (-115)
Kyle Hendricks will get the start for the Chicago Cubs in Game One of the doubleheader,and I expect he is going to get chased early. In Hendricks last start he went 3.2 innings giving up 11 hits and seven runs. I don’t expect against a lineup like the Dodgers, it’s going to get any better and he is going to be chased early. Look for Hendricks to finish under 4.5 strikeouts.
Aaron Nola Under 7.5 strikeouts (+106)
Like stated above, finding the value is most important with props and getting plus money on Aaron Nola’s strikeouts makes a whole lot of sense. Aaron Nola has only gone above seven strikeouts one this season, and that was in the game that he threw a complete game. In his last start against the Cardinals, he had seven strikeouts. It seems a high probability that Nola finishes with seven strikeouts, which means your bet at plus money will cash.
Domingo German over 4.5 strikeouts (-135)
German has made three starts this year for the new York Yankees and had six strikeouts in each of the last two starts. I don’t love the price sitting at -135, but this one of the safest bets on the entire board.
