It’s a lighter slate of games across the MLB on Monday, but there is still plenty of value across the board in terms of MLB player props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB player props for Monday for you to cash on.
Spencer Turnbull over 4.5 strikeouts (-162)
I don’t love the odds for this play, but it’s still a very safe bet. Each of Spencer Burnbull’s last two starts he has had at least seven strikeouts. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he had nine strikeouts, and against the Cleveland Indians he is going to mow them down. Back Turnbull to finish with at least seven strikeouts again.
Fernando Tatis Jr under 0.5 hits (+140)
Betting Fernando Tatis Jr to finish with under a hit wouldn’t be a smart bet most nights, but in this game it is. Brandon Woodruff has a 2-2 record and an ERA of 1.58. The only reason that he is 2-2 is that he hasn’t gotten run support this season. Woodruff is going to shut down the entire Padres offense and taking the value at +140 is a good play with Fernando Tatis Jr finishing without a hit.
Kevin Kiermaier to hit a home run (+980)
Kevin Kiermaier has been cleared to play in this game and he is going to hit a home run. Ross Stripling comes into this game sitting with an 0-3 record and an ERA of 7.00. Kiermaier hasn’t hit a home run yet this season, but that is going to change in this game. Throw a few dollars for a low risk high reward type of play.
David Peterson over 6.5 strikeouts (+105)
This is another bet that is based on value. Two games ago against the Tampa Bay Rays he went 7,1 innings and nine strikeouts. Look for Peterson to go up and down the Rockies lineup and he will finish with at least seven or eight strikeouts in this game.
