It’s a full slate of MLB games on Friday 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 Friday a winning one.
Houston Astros over 5.5 runs (-130)
Matt Shoemaker gets the start for the Minnesota Twins and that is going to lead to plenty of scoring by the Houston Astros. In Shoemaker’s last start against the Royals, he only recorded one out giving up six hits and nine runs. Shoemaker might get a little deeper in this game, but I still expect the Astros to have no issue finding the offensive success in this game. I don’t love the odds on this play, and if you can get this number up to six for better odds, that also makes a lot of sense.
Twins/Astros over 1.5 runs in the first inning (+150)
Like stated above, Matt Shoemaker is on the mound for the Twins and that is something the Astros are going to take advantage of early and often. Look for them to tee off on Shoemaker early and the two teams will combine for over 1.5 runs in the first inning.
San Diego Padres under 2.5 runs (-120)
Jacob deGrom’s last start came against the San Diego Padres and he went seven innings giving up only three hits and zero runs while striking out 11. The Padres managed zero runs the entire game and this one should be another shutout. Look for the Padres to finish under 2.5 runs.
Giants/Nationals under 0.5 runs in the first inning (-120)
The Giants and Nationals both send one of their best pitchers on the mound and I expect that is going to lead to both teams struggling to score early in this game. Look for the GIants and Nationals both to fail to score and for the under 0.5 runs to score.
