Let’s dive into these detailed analyses and uncover why these MLB picks are your go-to bets for Thursday night.


1. Giants DH Jorge Soler Over 0.5 Home Runs (+300)

If you’re looking for a solid bet in Thursday’s games, placing your money on Jorge Soler to hit a home run against Ryne Nelson of the Arizona Diamondbacks at +300 MLB odds could be a very profitable move.

Nelson, who is starting for the D-Backs, gave up 15 homers to right-handers last season, posting a high 1.79 HR/9 ratio. Though he’s kept the ball in the yard against righties this season, statistics suggest a shift might be on the horizon. As we all know, bad habits die hard, so here’s hoping that Nelson’s pop back up on Thursday.

Enter Jorge Soler, a right-handed powerhouse who’s had a slow start with just three homers, but the matchup tonight is ripe for him to add to that total. Nelson heavily favors his four-seam fastball, which he throws over half the time. This plays directly into Soler’s strengths — he boasts a 61.5% hard-hit rate and a .655 xSLG against four-seam fastballs this year. Even though Soler hasn’t faced Nelson before, his proficiency against this type of pitching makes tonight’s game an ideal scenario for a home run.

This prop bet stands out as one of the most promising MLB Thursday parlay prop bets on the board, making it an enticing option for anyone looking to capitalize on favorable MLB odds.



2. Marlins LHP A.J. Puk 3+ Earned Runs (+114)

The Miami Marlins stink, and a major part of the issue has been their pitching. A.J. Puk (0-3, 5.91) is a big part of that problem, and I’m betting his life gets a little bit worse tonight when he takes on the Chicago Cubs on the road.

The MLB odds for this prop are fantastic considering Puk has allowed seven runs in 10 ⅓ innings. The only thing holding him back from being a superstar in regards to betting against him is he doesn’t stick in games long enough to really rack up the earned runs. He’s yet to pitch more than 4 ⅔ innings, but I’m hoping that changes tonight.

It’s not as if the Marlins need to save him for anything, and Puk is probably stretched out enough now to go five or six frames.

With more hits allowed than innings pitched, this is a prime spot to fade a poop pitcher with our MLB picks.
