Tuesday MLB Prop: Kyle Harrison 6+ Hits Allowed (+125)

Facing the Dodgers, whose lineup includes heavy hitters like Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani and Freddie Freeman, Giants lefty Kyle Harrison is anticipated to have a challenging game to say. After surrendering six hits to the Padres recently, the bad news might continue against the Dodgers’ robust offense, which has performed exceptionally well this season.

With just eight career starts under his belt, this is a big spot for Harrison, who had a 4.15 ERA across seven starts in 2023 as a rookie. Though Harrison posted solid numbers in this matchup last season, this Dodgers’ offense is crushing almost every category with 80 hits and 52 runs through eight games while posting an absurd .293 team batting average.

Considering Harrison’s limited experience and past performance, MLB betting on him to allow over six hits against the Dodgers, who have been on a hitting spree, feels like a rewarding wager.

 

MLB Prop: Kyle Tucker 2+ Total Bases from Hits (+118)

Tonight, Blue Jays‘ pitcher Chris Bassitt, steps onto the field against the Astros following a challenging outing against Tampa Bay, where he surrendered four runs off six hits in five innings. His track record shows susceptibility to left-handed hitters, conceding a .363 wOBA to left-handers since the start of last season.

Conversely, Houston’s Kyle Tucker, known for his prowess against right-handed pitching, has shown promise with a .362 wOBA, maintaining a low strikeout rate against right-handers. Despite his poor historical underperformance against Bassitt, with a .100 average over 20 at-bats, Tucker’s strong analytics against righties set the stage for a potential turnaround.

Given Bassett’s difficulties with left-handers and Tucker’s consistent contact against righties, the matchup could favor Tucker making significant plays and beating the MLB odds for his total bases from hits. This is one of my top MLB bets today, and I look forward to Tucker going ham on Bassitt and the Blue Jays.
