Best MLB Prop Bets Today 04 11 2024

On Wednesday, a rainout cost us two of our five MLB prop bets. Fortunately, we won the other three, and if you followed along, you would have more than doubled your money. Obviously, that’s the goal on Thursday as well. With just six games on the schedule, including several day games, this was tricky. But we managed to find prop bets that we like on Thursday. The odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook, which is giving new users $150 in bonus bets for making a $5 bet after signing up.

Best MLB Prop Bets Today: Brewers vs. Reds (1:10 PM, EST)

Sal Frelick Over 0.5 Hits (-185) at DraftKings

Most fans aren’t familiar with Frelick, but that’s okay. He’s batting .289 and has three multiple-hit games in his last four games. He also has a hit in his only at-bat against Cincinnati starter Nick Martinez. That’s not much, but it’s enough to believe in a young hitter who’s in a groove and has relatively good odds to get one measly hit.

William Contreras Over 1.5 Total Bases (-105) at DraftKings) 

Contreras has been Milwaukee’s best hitter this season, batting .364 with an OPS of 1.022. Six of his 16 hits this season have gone for extra bases and he’s collected over 1.5 total bases in five of 11 games. That may not seem that impressive, but he does have a seven-game hitting streak. Contreras is also 2 for 4 with a double in his career against Martinez, who by the way owns a 7.20 ERA. Our read is that the Brewers will have a good day and Contreras will be a big part of it.

Best MLB Prop Bets Today: Astros vs. Royals (2:05 PM, EST)

Brady Singer Under 2.5 ER (-115) at DraftKings

Singer is off to an outstanding start in 2024, as are the Royals. Over 13.1 innings, he’s allowed just one run on five hits. Yet, we’re still getting decent odds on him allowing two earned runs or less. Of course, facing the Astros is a big step up after dominating the White Sox in his last start. However, the trio of Jose Abreu, Jose Altuve, and Yordan Alvarez is a combined 7 for 39 (.179) against Singer, who has contained Houston’s big bats in the past. That’s a good indicator that he’ll be able to limit the Astros to two runs or less.

Bobby Witt Jr. Over 1.5 Total Bases (-110) at DraftKings

With a .313 average and nine extra-base hits in 12 games, we’re going to take a chance on Witt collecting over 1.5 total bases against the Astros. While he’s slumped a little lately, going over 1.5 total bases just twice in his last five games, that trend shouldn’t last. Witt is too good of a hitter and has too much power. Plus, Houston starter Hunter Brown is rocking a 6.43 ERA, so look for Kansas City’s best hitter to do some damage.

Best MLB Prop Bets Today: Orioles vs. Red Sox (7:10 PM, EST)

Grayson Rodriguez Over 6.5 Strikeouts (+105) at DraftKings

If you thought Rodriguez had a breakout season last year, he’s been even better early in 2024. He’s pitched at least six innings in each of his first two starts, which gives him more time to collect strikeouts. As a result, he’s gone over 6.5 strikeouts in each of his first two starts, including nine against the Angels in his first start. Most of Boston’s lineup hasn’t faced him before while the Red Sox rank fourth in the big leagues in strikeouts. That makes this a good bet, especially with plus odds.
