Best MLB Prop Bets
Monday, August 3rd
There is always the over/under and money line plays that can offer great value in the MLB, but there are many other ways to bet a game to make money. Let's take some of the best prop bets for Monday's game that will make you some money.
Aaron Judge to hit a home run +245
Getting +245 on a player to hit a home run isn’t great value, but New York Yankees star Aaron Judge is a great play. Aaron Judge has hit a home run in five straight games, and there really isn’t any reason to think he won’t do it again.
Aaron Judge over 0.5 RBI’s -134
We already broke down why we love Aaron Judge, but even if he didn’t hit a home run, he will have enough success to at least drive in one run. The -134 isn’t a terrible number to lay on a bet that has a high probability of hitting.
Sonny Gray over 6.5 strikeouts -134
The Cleveland Indians offense is struggling coming into this game, and Sonny Gray should go deep enough into this game to go over this total. In Gray’s first start of the season he had nine strikeouts, and in the second game he had 11 strikeouts. Getting this number at 6.5 is a gift and I would bet it all the way up to 8.5 strikeouts.
San Diego Padres over 3.5 Runs -110
The San Diego Padres get to face off against Walker Buehler who will get the start for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Buehler struggled in his first start of the season against the Houston Astros going 3.2 innings giving up two runs. The Padres offense might not be as strong as the Astros, but they will still find enough success scoring to get over 3.5 runs.
Pittsburgh Pirates Under 3.5 Runs -104
The Minnesota Twins pitching staff has been lights out this season, and the Pirates are going to have issues scoring in this game. The Twins used a starter on Sunday and gave up zero runs. Lewis Thorpe will get the start for the Pirates and he has gone 4 2/3rd of an inning giving up zero runs. The Twins have one of the best bullpens in baseball, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Pirates be shutout in this game.
