It’s a full slate of games across the MLB and there is plenty of value in terms of MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props to make your night a winning one.
Tampa Bay Rays to score first and win (-135)
The Tampa Bay Rays are going to have no issue getting the job done on Friday night. The Rays get to face off with Matt Harvey which means their scoring should start in the first inning. The Rays are also going to have no issue running up the score and they will cruise to an easy victory. Back the Rays to score first and win.
Nelson Cruz to hit a home run and the Rays to win (+275)
We have already established the Rays should have no issue winning this game, and there should be plenty of home runs hit against Matt Harvey. Each of his last two starts, Harvey has given up two home runs. Look for Nelson Cruz to hit one of those home runs and for the Rays to come away with the victory.
Pittsburgh Pirates ML first five innings (+125)
J.A, Happ has been pitching better as of late but he has still been inconsistent this season, and the Pittsburgh Pirates can score some runs off of him. I don’t trust either of these bullpens but this bet should take them out of it. Back the Pirates to win on the money line in the first five innings.
Texas Rangers over 3.5 runs (-110)
The Texas Rangers are going to find enough success to go over 3.5 runs in this game. Jake Odorizzi has been a bit inconsistent this year, and the Rangers will get three runs against him. That means they will only need to find another run against the bullpen.
