One of the biggest opportunities to earn some significant winnings comes in the thrilling four-game series between the Toronto Blue Jays vs the Tampa Bay Rays. Outside of the monster 20-1 win over the Rays on Tuesday, May 23rd, the batting for the Blue Jays has struggled.

In nine of the last ten games for Toronto (not counting the 20-1 win), the Blue Jays have averaged 2.3 runs per game. They have really struggled to get their batting team in a solid rhythm.

In two of the three games in the series, the starting pitchers for Tamp Bay, Shane McClanahan and Taj Bradley, have delivered seven strikeouts. Zach Elfin (3.45 ERA in 47 innings pitched) is set to start in the final game of the home series for the Rays. Eflin has delivered 52 strikeouts in eight games played this season for an average of 6.5 strikeouts per game. Elfin should have a productive game on Thursday.

Miami Marlins vs Colorado Rockies

My Pick – Ezequiel Tovar Prop To Record Over 0.5 Hits (-270)

The Colorado Rockies have not the most promising team in the NL West despite having the talent and potential to come away with a more convincing playoffs chase. The Rockies have won two of the previous three games over the Miami Marlins in their four-game home series. It is thanks to the efficient performance of players like Rockies shortstop Ezequiel Tover, who has created efficient performances on both sides of the field.

Tover is not the most prominent batter for the Rockies, but he is able to read the pitches efficiently to create a good hit and get on base. In the last five games, Tover has accounted for five hits and only struck out twice. Two of those hits were double-base hits.

The Rockies should not expect another standout performance at the plate to win the series 3-1 over the Marlins, but they will have a solid shot. Tover’s efficiency at the plate within the past few games is too good not to pass up.

San Diego Padres vs Washington Nationals

My Pick – Juan Soto Prop To Record Over 0.5 Hits (-225)

The San Diego Padres have been shockingly one of the most disappointing teams in the MLB due to their high expectations and star level. The Padres went Thursday’s matchup with the Washington Nationals with an overall record of 22-27. Thursday’s game will break the tie between the two teams in the three-game series at Washington.

If there is one player on the Padres to trust in the month of May is star outfielder Juan Soto. In the month of May, Soto has accounted for a batting average of .333, an on-base percentage of .461 and 24 hits during a span of 20 games. He has accounted for a hit in 14 of the 20 games for the Padres in May.

Soto is looking to redeem himself from his no-hitting performance in Wednesday’s 5-3 loss to the Nationals. With Manny Machado on the IL and Fernando Tatis Jr. struggling, it will be smart to believe in the abilities of Soto at the plate.

Baltimore Orioles vs New York Yankees

My Pick – Cedric Mullins Prop To Record Over 0.5 RBIs (+195)

The Baltimore Orioles have become a reliable team to contend for the ALCS with an overall record of 32-17. The three-game series between the New York Yankees and the Orioles has been as good as advertised with both teams taking one game each.

The Yankees come into this game as the favorite to take the series as each win and loss is critical in a tight AL East. Baltimore is looking to continue their efficiency at the plate thanks to a series of reliable batters including centerfielder Cedric Mullins.

Mullins comes into this game with high odds of accounting for an RBI, which is surprising since he leads the team in RBIs with 39. Mullins has accounted for an RBI in three of the last four games for the Orioles by a total of five. With high odds going into the last game of an important divisional series, you can expect Mullins to be ready.

Oakland Athletics vs Seattle Mariners

My Pick – Logan Gilbert Prop To Allow Under 4.5 Strikeouts (-110)

The 2023 MLB Season has a lot of uncertainty with May nearing completed. Two things are for certain, however. The Seattle Mariners are starting to find their rhythm back at over .500% and the Oakland Athletics are easily the worst team in baseball. The Athletics are off to their worst start in franchise history since 1932.

The Mariners have taken advantage of the incredibly poor play by the Athletics by winning the last three games as they try to take the sweep on Thursday. Logan Gilbert (3.81 ERA in 52 innings pitched) will get the start for Seattle.

In two of the last three games for the Mariners, their starting pitchers have only allowed four or fewer hits from the Athletics in six innings pitched. The only exception was Marco Gonzalez, who allowed five hits in six innings. Gilbert has been a more reliable pitcher for the Mariners this season and has a great chance of holding Oakland to under 4.5 hits like Bryce Miller and Luis Castillo.
