Best MLB Prop Bets Today 04 12 2024

Saturday guarantees us a full MLB schedule, which makes it ideal for putting together parlays. Instead of putting together one parlay, we decided to do two for today’s games. One parlay involves a couple of teams who we think are locks to win. The other is a same-game parlay for a primetime matchup. The odds for both parlays are from DraftKings Sportsbook, which is offering new users $200 worth of bonus bets for signing up and placing an initial $5 bet.

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Guardians vs. White Sox (7:10 PM, EST)

Guardians -1.5 (+100) at DraftKings

The White Sox have actually won a couple of games this week, but they still have the worst record in the American League. That makes them an easy team to bet against. Veteran Mike Clevinger lasted just two innings in his first start of the season, which doesn’t bode well for Chicago’s chances. Even if he pitches better, the White Sox will need to get a lot of innings from their bullpen. On the other hand, Triston McKenzie has lowered his ERA from 6.00 to 3.97 over his last four starts, all of which have been Cleveland wins. It’s hard to find a member of the White Sox with good career numbers against McKenzie. He should continue to perform, opening the door for a comfortable win by the Guardians.

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Athletics vs. Mariners (9:40 PM, EST)

Mariners -1.5 (+100) at DraftKings

In fairness, the A’s aren’t the pushover we expected them to be this season. But with Bryce Miller starting for Seattle, Oakland faces an uphill battle. Despite only having a 3-2 record, Miller is rocking a 2.61 ERA with the Mariners winning five of the last six games he's started. During his three home starts during that stretch, Miller has allowed just two runs on nine hits across 17.1 innings. He’s been electric in home games and should have no problem against an Oakland lineup that ranks closer to the bottom than the top in most offensive categories. That’s enough to convince us that Seattle will have an easy time winning on Saturday night.

Total Parlay Odds: +300 at DraftKings Sportsbook

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Cardinals vs. Brewers (7:15 PM, EST)

Kyle Gibson 2+ Walks (-270) at DraftKings

At age 36, Gibson knows he has to work the perimeter of the strike zone. That's led to an inconsistent number of strikeouts this year, as well as a high walk total. In six of his seven starts this year, Gibson has issued at least two walks. The Brewers rank top 10 in the majors in drawing walks. They should show enough patience to draw at least two walks against Gibson.

Freddy Peralta 6+ Strikeouts (-240) at DraftKings

When he faced the Cardinals in April, Peralta tossed six scoreless innings, striking out seven. He’s reached five strikeouts in all seven of his starts this year and a minimum of seven strikeouts in five of those seven starts. That should put him on track to reach at least six strikeouts in his rematch with St. Louis.

Christian Yelich Hit (-270) at DraftKings

While Yelich getting a hit doesn’t move the needle that much, it’s a safe bet to include in our parlay. He’s batting .346 and has five hits in his last two games, so he’s come back strong from a stint on the IL. The former MVP has been on fire lately. Yelich is also 4 for 11 (.364) with a pair of doubles in his career against Gibson. That’s more than enough to make us think that Yelich is going to manage at least one base hit on Saturday.

Nolan Arenado Hit (-170) at DraftKings

Arenado doesn’t have the same power he’s had in the past, but he’s still a productive part of the St. Louis order. Despite going hitless on Friday, Arenado had a hit in three straight games before that and has a hit in six of eight games this month. He’s also 10 for 28 (.357) with four home runs in his career against Peralta. That makes us feel confident including him in our parlay. 

Total Parlay Odds: +390 at DraftKings Sportsbook
