Thursday is a busy day across the MLB and there are plenty of MLB props to make your Thursday a winning one. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props and MLB player props to make you money.
Max Scherzer to record a win (+165)
It took extra innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers to get it done on Wednesday, but that won’t be the case in this game. Max Scherzer is going to lock down the Padres, while Yu Darvish is going to get hit hard by the Dodgers bats. Look for Scherzer to record a win and the +165 to cash.
Zac Gallen over 5.5 strikeouts (-120)
Zac Gallen is a strong strikeout pitcher and even when he struggles giving up runs, he still racks up the strikeouts. In Gallen’s last start against the Colorado Rockies he finished with nine strikeouts.
Los Angeles Angels over 5.5 runs (-125)
The Los Angeles Angels are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Keegan Akin gets the start for the Baltimore Orioles and he has been awful this year. In each of Akin’s last two starts he has given up three runs, and three starts ago he gave up six runs. Look for the Angels to finish with over 5.5 runs.
San Francisco Giants to score in the first inning (+195)
The San Francisco Giants are going to find their offensive success early. Carlos Carrasco has had some major issues this season and two starts ago against the Los Angeles Dodgers he went two innings giving up six runs. Look for Carrasco to give up some runs in the first inning.
