Welcome to the prop bet tracker. As MLB season gets into high gear, another way to get in on the action is to analyze the day’s best prop bets – from strikeouts to home runs, first to five runs to total bases logged.
Each day, we will try and identify a few picks that are ready to explode in the prop market.
Bundy has not been quite as strong as 2020, but that's OK — he's still a very good pitcher, as he's shown with 43 strikeouts this year. The problem with Bundy is that wipeout slider has been very hittable — and he faces a Red Sox offense that's arguably the best in the league. They rock a .332 team wOBA and only a 22.4% strikeout rate.
The Dodgers, and Clayton Kershaw, showcased the swing-and-miss prowess of the Marlins Friday. If you are a bettor, that's a good thing. If you are a Marlins fan, maybe not so much. The Marlins struck out 15 times Friday, and they rank sixth in baseball with a 26.3% strikeout rate. Expect Bauer to try and match Kershaw's feat.
Folks, he faces Martín Pérez. Yes, the veteran southpaw is still throwing baseballs, and he still isn't that good. He's sporting a 1.40 WHIP this season, and he was popped for a .416 slugging percentages against batters with the platoon advantage a season ago. Trout can't get 0-fer again, can he?
