Best MLB Player Props Today

1. Rangers SP Jon Gray Over 5½ Hits Allowed

I’m heading to the City of Brotherly Love for our first MLB bet tonight. This price is a bit juiced at -139, but I love the number we’re getting on Jon Gray here. Gray has posted solid numbers through his first nine outings, but he is a candidate for regression against this scorching-hot Phillies lineup on the road. Gray has topped five hits allowed in three of his previous five starts. He has an excellent ERA of just 2.08, but his xERA is 3.73. He has been getting lucky and out of jams even with his hard contact allowed peaking.

The Phillies lineup has been tremendous through the first quarter of the season. Philadelphia owns the third-highest batting average in baseball at (.258). Over the last month, the Phils have a terrific 131 wRC+ against right-handed pitchers. They have put together the second-most hits in the league over the previous month. Notably, Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, and J.T. Realmuto are hitting over .300 in their careers against Gray. Count on the Phillies bats to smack Gray around early.

 

 

 

2. Angels SP Griffin Canning Over 3½ Earned Runs

Last night, we faded Angels starting pitcher Reid Detmers, and I’m going right back to it tonight against the dangerous Astros bats. The Los Angeles Angels continue their road trip against American League West opponents. After trailing early, they stole the opening game of the series at Minute Maid Park against the Houston Astros. Houston’s record (21-27) doesn’t tell us the whole story. The Astros have one of the most talented lineups in MLB and are dangerous at home. The ‘Stros have won nine of their last 11 and appear to be heating up–or at least their bats are!

Los Angeles will send right-hander Griffin Canning to the rubber tonight. Canning has made nine starts this season and allowed more than three earned runs in four. He owns a 5.21 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in his fifth MLB season. I would have sipped the juice at 2½, but I’m happy to take the plus-money here.

Canning is coming off three consecutive strong outings, allowing two runs or less. He allowed at least three earned runs in five of six straight starts to begin his season but has since settled down in May. Houston has the highest overall batting average in MLB (.265). The Astros are hitting an MLB-best .274 as a team at home and have the second-most runs scored at home among American League teams.

Canning has made four starts against Houston since 2020 and allowed at least 4 Earned Runs in three of them. Houston’s projected lineup has mashed him in the past with a combined .333 batting average in 48 plate appearances. We can trust the Astros to continue to put up runs at home.

3. Mariners SP Bryan Woo Over 4½ Hits Allowed

The Seattle Mariners stole the opening game of their four-game set in the Bronx after scoring four runs in the ninth inning. It was an uncharacteristic event for the Yankees who had won seven straight entering last night’s game. I expect the Bronx Bombers to bounce back tonight. Seattle sends 24-year-old right-hander Bryan Woo to the bump tonight. Woo has made two starts this season after dealing with some elbow inflammation. He faced the Athletics and Royals at home. In his rookie year in 2023, he owned a 4.82 ERA on the road compared to just 3.31 at home.

Many people will point to Woo’s first career start against the Yankees last June, in which he allowed just two hits in over five innings of work. This Yankees lineup is a different beast, though. New York has had at least five hits against seven consecutive right-handed starting pitchers. The lineup is much more balanced this season with the additions of left-handed bats. Juan Soto and Alex Verdugo added an element New York had been missing for years. The Yankees have the third-highest batting average at home among American League teams (.256). The Bombers have the highest overall batting average in May (.272). Aaron Judge has been on a tear after a slow start.

Woo leans on his 4-seam fastball, throwing it over 50% of the time through his first two starts this season. Last season, he threw it 46.9% of the time. This Yankees lineup will do significant damage if Woo refuses to mix it up. The Yankees have six batters inside the top 65 hitters in MLB in batting average against 4-seamers this season (Soto 6th, Verdugo 22nd, Volpe 46th, Judge 47th, Rizzo 48th, and Stanton 64th). The Bronx Bombers will bounce back tonight early.
