Best MLB Player Props September 13 2023

Pitchers are the focus of our MLB prop bets for Wednesday. With a couple of Cy Young contenders on the mound in the National League, there are plenty of chances to cash in on high-level hurlers in Wednesday’s slate. Below are our top three prop picks for the day on the diamond.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Mets

My Pick: Zac Gallen Under 5.5 hits allowed (EVEN at DraftKings Sportsbook)

Zac Gallen is still in the race for the NL Cy Young, and he has a chance to boost his profile for that award against the New York Mets on Wednesday. The Mets are very close to being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for the season. Expect them to put up little resistance against Gallen, and for the Diamondbacks ace to give up fewer than 5.5 hits on the day.

There are some concerns about whether or not Gallen can deliver as a pitcher on the road at this point in time. However, Gallen has done some work to address those concerns, as he threw a complete game shutout in his last outing on the road against the Chicago Cubs. Here, he faces a team much worse offensively than that Chicago lineup that he shut out, and that should help Gallen to put forth another strong performance away from Chase Field.

This is a huge game for the Diamondbacks, who enter this contest holding onto the third and final Wild Card spot in the National League. They are just one game clear of the Cincinnati Reds for that final spot, making this the perfect time for Gallen to take the mound and throw another gem to help his team.

Oakland Athletics vs Houston Astros

My Pick: Hunter Brown to record the win (+150 at PointsBet)

Next up, we look at a pitcher who is not a Cy Young candidate, as Hunter Brown pitches for the Houston Astros against the Oakland Athletics. The A’s have had the Astros’ number in this series so far, winning two games in a row against the top team in the AL West. But Brown should be able to help put a stop to that, and we like him to come away with the win when this game is in the books.

Oakland has picked up wins against Framber Valdez and Justin Verlander on back-to-back days, something very few would have expected to happen. But Oakland’s wins in those games were related to pitching more than anything else, as the Astros scored a combined two runs in those contests. If the Astros can get anything going offensively, they can turn things around on Wednesday.

Brown has not been great this season, as he enters this game with a 10-11 record and a 4.78 ERA. But against the worst team in all of baseball, he should be able to put something respectable together on the mound in this spot. Look for Brown to hand the A’s their 100th loss of the season here.

San Diego Padres vs Los Angeles Dodgers

My Pick: Dodgers team total under 4.5 runs (-108 at FanDuel Sportsbook)

How We Rate
Affiliate Disclaimer

Our final MLB prop bet for Wednesday features another Cy Young candidate in the National League. Blake Snell leads the San Diego Padres into battle against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, with the Dodgers favored to beat the NL Cy Young favorite. But we think that Snell will shut the Dodgers down in this game, and are happy to take the under on the Dodgers team total for this contest.

Snell has pitched against the Dodgers three times already this season, going 0-1 in those three games so far. But he deserves a ton of credit for holding the Dodgers to an opposing batting average of just .153 in those three games. If he can once again prevent the Dodgers from piling up hits on him, Snell could help the Padres to come away with a win in this contest and further solidify himself as the Cy Young favorite.
