It’s a lighter slate of games across the MLB and that means there is plenty of value in terms of MLB prop bets. Let’s take a look at the best MLB prop bets to make your Thursday night a winning one.
Framber Valdez to record a win (-120)
Framber Valdez is the better pitcher in this game and he is going to come away with the victory. Glenn Otto gets the start for the Texas Rangers and in the last game, he went 3.1 innings giving up eight hits and eight runs. Valdez is going to have plenty of run support and the Astros will cruise to the victory.
Oakland Athletics, Kansas City Royals over 0.5 runs in the first inning (-125)
There was a run scored in the first inning on Wednesday night, and that will happen again in this game. Both of the starting pitchers have an ERA over five, and the bats will get going early in this game. Back the over 0.5 runs in the first inning.

San Diego Padres over 4.5 runs (+115)
Kevin Gausman is having a strong season, but he hasn’t been as dominant the last couple of starts. In each of the last two starts, Gausman has given up three runs. The Padres scored nine runs on Wednesday. I like the +115 value and the over will cash.
New York Yankees under 6.5 runs (-140)
The New York Yankees are going to score runs in this game, but these 6.5 runs are too many. Chris Ellis has pitched well this season sitting with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 2.08. The Yankees scored only four runs on Wednesday, and they will get close to that number again in this game.
