It’s another big slate of MLB games across the league on Sunday and there is plenty of value in terms of MLB prop bets. Let’s take a look at the best MLB prop bets and MLB player prop bets to make your Sunday a winning one.
Pittsburgh Pirates. St. Louis Cardinals, Neither team to reach three runs (+800)
I expect runs are going to be very hard to come by for both teams in this Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals game. Both Steven Brault and Adam Wainwright have been pitching some good baseball coming into this game. Look for both pitchers to be strong, both teams bat to be cold, and neither team to reach three runs.
Logan Webb over 4.5 strikeouts (-130)
This Logan Webb strikeout prop only being 4.5 strikeouts is a steal. This is my favorite bet on the entire board. Logan Webb has had at least eight strikeouts in each of his last three starts and he is going to be strong again in this game. Look for Webb to finish over 4.5 strikeouts.
Chicago White Sox over 4.5 runs (+105)
Archer is coming into this game after being activated, and I don’t trust him to go that deep in this game. The White Sox should be able to get some runs off him early, and they will finish with at least five runs in this game.
New York Mets over 3.5 runs (-110)
David Price hasn’t been going deep in games and it seems most games he gives up two or three runs. This is a Mets team that should be able to piece together a run or two against the Dodgers bullpen.
