MLB Player Props July 3

Ronald Acuna Jr. Over 1.5 Hits (+150 at DraftKings)

Nowadays, there’s nothing wrong with taking a shot on any bet involving Acuna, especially if there are plus odds. Packaging Acuna to get a hit into a parlay is usually a good idea. But as a solo bet, over 1.5 hits at +150 at DraftKings Sportsbook makes sense too. Check out other MLB sportsbooks before placing your bets! Acuna is in the midst of a 13-game hitting streak. During that streak, he’s had six multi-hit games, so he’s always a threat to get more than one hit. 

Acuna and the Braves will face Cleveland rookie Gavin Williams on Monday. Williams is coming off an impressive outing against the Royals last time out. However, his first two starts in the big leagues have come against the A’s and Royals. On Monday, he’ll have to face an Atlanta lineup that is sending six players to the All-Star Game. Among those six all-stars, Acuna is the safest bet to have a big day against a young pitcher.

Spencer Steer Over 0.5 Hits (-120 at DraftKings), Over 1.5 Total Bases (+135 at DraftKings)

Steer is one of the young hitters that’s helping to fuel Cincinnati’s turnaround this season. He’s been particularly hot lately and has plenty of power, which is why getting a hit or multiple bases are both on the table on Monday. Over his last eight games, Steer has had at least one hit in six of those games. He also has five extra-base hits in those eight games, so going over 1.5 total bases is a good possibility.

On Monday, Steer and the Reds will be facing Washington’s Jake Irvin. Nobody on the Reds has ever faced Irvin before. However, the young righty has a 4.72 ERA this season with the Nationals losing seven of the last eight games he’s started. Irvin has been a little better lately, but he's not exactly setting the world on fire, so a hot hitter like Steer should be able to stay hot against him.

Braxton Garrett Under 2.5 ER (-160 at DraftKings), Under 4.5 Hits (+115 at DraftKings)

Garrett is yet to receive enough credit for his role in Miami’s success this season. However, the lefty has a 3.53 ERA and is fresh off a month of June in which he posted a 2.22 ERA. The Marlins have also won six in a row and eight of their last nine games that Garrett has started, which is no coincidence. That’s another reason why there are multiple prop bets to consider with him on Monday.

In his last four starts, Garrett has allowed one run or less and four hits or less. If those trends continue, both of these bets will hit. To be fair, Garrett hasn’t faced any elite teams during that stretch. But the Cardinals don’t exactly fit that description either. Even if we go back further, Garrett has limited teams to four hits or less in seven of his last nine starts and two runs or less in eight of his last nine starts. His consistency over the last two months makes both of these bets worth considering.

Bryce Elder to Record Win (+110 at DraftKings), Under 2.5 ER (-120 at DraftKings), Under 6.5 Hits (-175 at DraftKings)

Fresh off his first all-star selection, Elder is a great option for multiple bets on Monday with the Braves visiting the Guardians. For starters, the Braves have won eight in a row and only lost four games during the entire month of June. Atlanta was 4-1 in Elder’s five starts last month with the young righty picking up the win in three of those games. The Braves have a good chance of winning again on Monday, and with plus odds, Elder to be the winning pitcher is a great bet.

Meanwhile, Elder has allowed five hits or less in five of his last six starts and 10 of his last 12 starts. The Guardians can be offensively challenged at times, so there is no reason to think that Elder won’t hold Cleveland’s lineup to six hits or less. Finally, Elder has looked extra sharp in his last three starts, conceding just three total runs on 11 hits over 19 innings of work. Again, a lackluster Cleveland lineup may not be able to change that. In fact, in his 16 starts this year, Elder has allowed two earned runs or less 12 times.

Logan Webb vs Mariners Over 5.5 Hits (-135 at DraftKings), Over 2.5 ER (+115 at DraftKings)

Unfortunately for the Giants, Monday is a good opportunity to face Webb. He and San Francisco are getting the Mariners at a bad time. Seattle just took two of three games against the Rays, scoring 19 runs over those three games. The Mariners are heating up offensively and full of confidence. Meanwhile, Webb posted a 4.70 ERA in June, so he’s had some rocky moments over his last few starts after he was brilliant in May, pitching to a 1.30 ERA.

In his last five starts, Webb has allowed at least seven hits four times. Even with the Giants winning four of those five starts, he hasn’t been at his best. Likewise, Webb has allowed at least three earned runs in five of his last six starts. While he’s faced some talented lineups during that stretch, the Mariners have some talent in their lineup. After knocking around Tampa’s staff over the weekend, the Mariners have a chance to get the better of Webb on Monday.
