Free MLB Player Props
MLB Games on Wednesday, May 5th
It’s a full slate of MLB games on Wednesday, 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.
John Means Over 6.5 strikeouts (-114)
John Means still isn’t getting enough attention for what he has done this season for the Baltimore Orioles. In two of Means last three starts he has had nine strikeouts. In the last game against the Oakland Athletics, he went seven innings giving up three hits, two runs, and he had nine strikeouts. Means will get at least seven strikeouts, and he should finish closer to that nine number.
Martin Perez Under 5.5 strikeouts (-134)
I don’t love this -134 number, but this is still one of the safest bets on the board. In five of Perez’s last six starts he has had less than 5.5 strikeouts, and he is going to get hit around hard in this game. In two of his last three starts he went 3.2 innings and going that deep won’t get him above that 5.5 strikeouts. Back Martin Perez to finish with under 5.5 strikeouts.
Buster Posey Over 0.5 Runs Batted In (+155)
Getting this big of plus money with Buster Posey is honestly a bit confusing to me. In four of Posey’s last five games he hs at least one runs batted in, and there should be plenty of scoring by both teams in this game. Look for Posey to be one of those guys who drives in at least one run, and +155 is so much value.
Jordan Montgomery Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-103)
Jordan Montgomery only had one strikeout in his last start, but the two previous games he had at least five strikeouts. I still don’t think Montgomery goes all that deep but two games ago he only went 4.2 innings but had five strikeouts. Back Jordan Montgomery to finish with over 4.5 strikeouts against the Houston Astros.
