It’s a nice slate of games across the MLB on Thursday and there is plenty of value across the board in terms of MLB game props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB game props to make your Thursday a winning one.
New York Yankees first team to score and win (+123)
The New York Yankees get a nice matchup getting to go against J.A. Happ who has been terrible as of late. In his last five appearances, Happ sits with an ERA of 10.17 and in this game, the Yankees are going to run up the score with ease. Happ is going to give up a few runs in the first inning, and the Yankees will have no issue winning this game. Back the Yankees to score first and to come away with a victory.
New York Yankees/Minnesota Twins over 1.5 first-inning runs (+195)
This is already broken down a little above, but the New York Yankees should be able to get those two runs in the first inning by themselves. Getting the start for the New York Yankees is Michael King and he is not as good as a start and the Twins could also pick up a run or two in the first inning.
San Francisco Giants under 3.5 runs (-135)
The Giants offense only scored three runs going against Kyle Gibson on Wednesday night and now they have a tougher matchup in this game. Max Scherzer over his last three starts has given up only five runs total. In the last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went 7.2 innings giving up five hits and one run. Look for the Giants to finish under 3.5 runs.
Atlanta Braves under 3.5 runs (-120)
The Atlanta Braves are going to struggle to score against Zack Wheeler who comes into this game sitting with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 2.51. Wheeler is going to lock down the Braves offense and that will lead to them scoring under 3.5 runs.
