Most teams are in action on Thursday across the MLB and there are plenty of winners with MLB prop bets. Let’s take a look at the best MLB prop bets to make this a winning night.
Odd number of runs in the first inning - Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs +160
The Cubs aren’t going to score in the first inning of this game, but the Colorado Rockies are going to jump out to a fast start in this game. Look for the Rockies to score a run in the first inning against Jake Arrieta, and there will be an odd number of runs in the first inning
Chicago Cubs under 4.5 runs (-105)
The Chicago Cubs are going to struggle to score runs in this game. Antonio Senzatela has been pitching better as of late, and over his last three starts he has given up eight runs total. The Cubs traded away most of their good players at the trade deadline, and they will finish under 4.5 runs in this game. Back the Cubs under 4.5 runs.
Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays over 14 runs (+375)
The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays are both going to find offensive success in this game. Triston McKenzie gets the start for the Cleveland Indians and he has been awful this year. The Blue Jays should get close to this number by themselves, and the alternate total runs makes a lot of sense.
Houston Astros under 5.5 runs (-115)
There is no doubt that the Houston Astros are talented, but this team total is too high for them. Griffin Jax gets the start for the Minnesota Twins and he showed some real flashes of being good in his last start. This is a tougher offense for Jax, but this is too much runs for the Astros. Look for the Astros to finish under 5.5 runs.
