Wednesday is a full slate of MLB games and there is some great value with some MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props to make your Wednesday a winning one.
Detroit Tigers -1.5 (+220)
The Detroit Tigers are going to get the job done in this game against Shohei Ohtani. The Tigers send Tarik Skubal to the mound and in each of his last two starts he has given up zero runs total. Look for the Tigers to give Skubal enough run support to win this game on the run line.
Los Angeles Dodgers over 5.5 runs (+105)
The Los Angeles Dodgers offense is going to be strong early in this game. JT Brubaker gets the start for the Pittsburgh Pirates, and he is going to be lit up in this game. Brubaker currently sits with an ERA of 5.13. Two starts ago against the Cincinnati Reds, Brubaker gave up seven hits and nine runs.
Jose Berrios under 5.5 strikeouts (+100)
Jose Berrios struggled in his last start against the Los Angeles Angels on the road, and I don’t see him finding a whole lot of success in this game. In Berrios last start he had only three strikeouts, and he is going to finish with under 5.5 strikeouts.
San Diego Padres over 7.5 strikeouts (-115)
The San Diego Padres are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Chi Chi Gonzalez currently sits with an ERA of 6.06 and that will lead to the Padres offense running up the score. Back the Padres to finish over 7.5 strikeouts.
