Thursday has 10 MLB games and there is plenty of value in some of these games in terms of MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props and MLB player props to make your Thursday filled with winners.
Jon Lester over 3.5 strikeouts (+125)
Jon Lester isn’t a strikeout pitcher now, but there is still value with this over-hitting at +125. Three starts ago Lester finished with four strikeouts, and against the Brewers he will find success. The Brewers are coming off a game where they had 13 strikeouts. Look for Lester to finish with at least four strikeouts in this game.
Milwaukee Brewers over 4.5 runs (-125)
Even though I think Lester finishes with at least four strikeouts, I think the Milwaukee Brewers are going to find success in this game with their offense. Lester has given up plenty of runs this season and in two of his last three starts he has given up at least five runs. Look for the Brewers to go over 4.5 runs.
Los Angeles Dodgers to win series (-135)
The Los Angeles Dodgers are the superior team in this game, and I don’t see any way the New York Mets are going to make it better in this game. Look for the Dodgers to use their offense again to win this series against the Mets.
Shane McClanahan to record a win (-105)
Shane McClanahan is going to pick up another win against the Baltimore Orioles. Jorge Lopez gets the start for the Baltimore Orioles and he has been awful this season. Look for McClanahan to slow down the Orioles' offense and he will record a win.
