Wednesday has every team in action across the MLB which means plenty of different MLB props to choose from. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props and MLB player props to make your night a winning one.
Gerrit Cole under 8.5 strikeouts (+110)
Gerrit Cole is going to have another strong start on Wednesday, but this strikeout total is just a little too high. The Angels only struck out a total of ten times on Tuesday night against the Yankees. Two starts ago, Cole finished with only six strikeouts, and I expect he will finish right around that number in this game.
Toronto Blue Jays to score in the first inning (+135)
When Matt Harvey has issues in games it usually includes giving up runs in the first inning. I expect Harvey is going to have issues and that is going to mean the Blue Jays are going to get the offense going early. It wouldn’t be all that shocking if Blue Jays scored four or five runs in the first inning.
Texas Rangers under 3.5 runs (+105)
Runs are going to be very hard to come by for the Texas Rangers. In each of the last two starts, Kyle Freeland has given up two runs, and once he leaves the game, the Rockies bullpen will come in and lockdown. I think the Rangers will finish right at two runs in this game.
Tampa Bay Rays under 3.5 runs (-130)
Chris Sale has been a welcome addition for the Boston Red Sox. Over Chris Sale’s last three starts he has given up only four runs total, and the runs are going to be a big issue in this game. Look for the Rays to struggle to get good at bats, and the under will cash.
