Cincinnati Reds vs Pittsburgh Pirates

My Pick – Ben Gamel Batter Prop Hits O 0.5 (-165)

Our first prop bet of the day involves a player that gets very little attention. That player is Pittsburgh’s Ben Gamel.

Ben Gamel is having a mediocre season for the Pirates, which is why he is not getting much attention. The left fielder has a .231 average, eight home runs, and 42 RBIs in 109 games. However, Gamel performs better against the Reds than most teams. In 14 games, he has 20 hits, three doubles, two home runs, and seven RBIs.

Gamel will face Pittsburgh’s Roansy Contreras. Contreras is having a solid season but Gamel is 2-4 against him in his career. Gamel will get a hit off Contreras. Bet on the over.

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals

My Pick – Austin Riley Batter Prop RBIs O 0.5 (+110)

Austin Riley continues to be a stud for Atlanta. The third baseman signed a ten-year, $212 million extension with the Braves after being named to his first All-Star team this year. Riley will hit at least one RBI today. Bet on the over.

Austin Riley comes into this game with a .278 average, 37 home runs, 92 RBIs. He also leads his team with his WAR of 6.1 (tied for tenth-highest in baseball). Riley struggled in his last two games against Philadelphia but will face easier pitching from this inferior Nationals rotation.

Riley will face Washington’s Cory Abbott today. Abbott made his season debut on June 19 and has had limited appearances since then. Even though he has a small sample size, I have been unimpressed by the second-year pitcher. Abbott is yet to receive his first win and has a 4.85 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. Riley should have some success against Abbott and will probably get an RBI off him. Bet on the over.

New York Yankees vs Toronto Blue Jays

My Pick – Aaron Judge Batter Prop Runs Scored O 0.5 (-165)

It is unclear whether Aaron Judge will be the AL MVP or not, but he is the best hitter in baseball. The 30-year-old center fielder leads the Yankees in most major statistical categories and has been largely responsible for their success this season. Judge will score a run today. Bet on the over.

Aaron Judge has a .314 average, .421 on-base percentage, 60 home runs, 128 RBIs, 125 runs, and 9.9 WAR. The 6’7” monster is having one of the best offensive seasons we have seen in a long time. Judge will face Toronto’s Kevin Gausman today. Gausman is a really impressive pitcher, but Judge has his number. Judge has eight hits, three home runs, and six RBIs against Gausman in his career. I do not make a habit of betting against Aaron Judge and do not plan on doing so today. Bet on the over.

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals

My Pick – Bryce Elder Pitcher Props To Record a Win Yes (-115)

Bryce Elder is not having an impressive season for the Atlanta Braves. However, I would still bet on him to record a win against the Washington Nationals today.

Bryce Elder was drafted to the Braves in 2020 and made his debut on April 12 for a spot start. He was sent back down at the end of August and recalled on August 6 for another start. Elder has only made three starts since August, but it looks like he is turning a corner. In his previous two starts, Elder has thrown 11⅔ innings and only given up one earned run.

Elder will face a weak Nationals squad today. The Nationals are the worst team in baseball and going through a rebuild. Since they are rebuilding, they have essentially no offensive weapons. If you pair the Nationals lack of offensive weapons with the bevy of offensive weapons the Braves possess, it is easy to see why Elder will get the win.

Cincinnati Reds vs Pittsburgh Pirates

My Pick – Roansy Contreras Pitcher Props Walks U 1.5 (-125)

Roansy Contreas is having an efficient season for Pittsburgh this year and has exhibited effective control. Bet on him to have one walk or less today.

After an initial look at Contreras’ numbers, I was inclined to pick the over. However, after I looked closer, I chose the under. Contreras has given up 37 walks in 16 starts and 19 overall appearances, but he has only walked one Reds’ hitter in two starts. The pitcher has performed quite well against Cincinnati and does not throw many balls. I expect Contreras to have similarly good control today. Bet on the under.

What Is a Prop Bet?

Prop betting is an awesome way to make money from your favorite sports. It allows you to bet on any outcome during the event itself using props. Props are wagers which are not directly related to the final outcome of a game or match.

Where to Bet on MLB Props?

There are a few places you can bet on MLB prop bets. I would recommend betting on Draftkings, but you can also use FanDuel or Caesars Sportbook to name a few places.
