It’s a full slate of games across the MLB on Friday and there is plenty of value across the league in terms of MLB player props and game props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB player people for Friday.
Anthony Rizzo to hit a home run (+550)
To say Tarik Skubal has struggled on the mound this season might actually be an understatement. It seems every start the ball is flying out of the ballpark, In 27 innings this year. Skubal has given up 11 home runs and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. The Cubs are going to hit at least a few home runs in this game, and Anthony Rizzo has a juicy matchup. Rizzo hasn’t had a strong season hitting only five home runs total, but that is going to change in this game. Look for Rizzo to finish with at least one home run.
Oakland Athletics to score first and win (+135)
Fading the Minnesota Twins has been profitable and there is no reason to believe it won’t continue on Friday night. The A’s get the first at bat’s on Friday and going against Matt Shoemaker means they should score in the first inning. That only leaves having to win the game for this to cash, something that should happen. Back the A’s to score first and come away with the victory.
Oakland Athletics over 4.5 Runs (+106)
The Oakland Athletics very well could have these five runs by the time that Shoemaker leaves the court. The A’s are going to also have a chance to tee off on the Twins bullpen and they will win this game with ease.
Philadelphia Phillies first team to score (-135)
The Philadelphia Phillies get to face off against Steven Matz and that is good news for the Phillies. In his last three starts, he sits with a 9.22 ERA and the long ball has been a big problem for him. The Phillies are going to take advantage of that and they will score the first run in this game. Back the Phillies to score the first run in this game.
