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 to identify a few picks that are ready to explode in the prop market.
There is no bigger stan of Brandon Woodruff than me. Period. But there are some warning signs here between two of the best teams in the National League. The Giants have been one of the league's best offenses, and in the last week, they have stayed hot at the dish, posting a .336 wOBA and .221 ISO mark. Woodruff has also gotten hit hard lately — he's allowed five or more hits in three of his last four starts.
This one is a bit mind-boggling to me. Despite trading away Trea Turner and losing Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña Jr. to injury, these teams are straight cookin’ at the dish. They both rank inside the top 15 in the league in wOBA over the last two weeks, and both are striking out at a clip under 18%. And Atlanta's home park has been a hitting monster this season, ranking seventh in park factor. With rookie Josiah Gray taking the mound, expect some scoring.
