After a nice 3-0 sweep yesterday with our baseball props, we're ready to stay HOT! Bailey Ober cashed our Over prop in the 3rd inning last night. The young righty mowed down the Tigers lineup like a knife through warm butter.
Both of our under selections got home as well. Logan Allen only ended up with 3 Ks and Bobby Miller finished with 4. It's always a great feeling to sweep the board!
Thursday brings us one of our most favorite things in sports: daytime baseball! Here are 3 PrizePicks MLB Player Props for Thursday, August 10. LFG! Good luck today, fellow sports investors!
You just can't help but feel sorry for Manoah. He went from an elite All-Star last year to struggling to get hitters out this year. His strikeout is down to 18.4%, which is 4.5% lower than last year.
Manoah's main issue though, has been his command. The big righty has a walk rate of 14.1%, which is one of the worst in the league. Cleveland's offense has been struggling, to say the least, but we think they can make this a short outing for Manoah today.
Sure, Manoah has gone over this total in 4 of his last 5 starts, but you have to consider who he was up against. In 3 of those starts he was pitching against DET, LAA, and SEA (3 of the highest strikeout temas in MLB). The Guardians have the lowest K-rate in MLB. Take the Under!
Here's another good one! Maeda has one of the highest K-rates in MLB at 29.6%. His Whiff Rate is also pretty impressive, as it sits in the 77th percentile.
Maeda has also done quite well against Detroit, as he struck out 8 against them back on June 23rd. His lifetime K-rate against the Tigers is 36.7%. There's no reason to think he can't get at least 7 Ks in this early tilt.
Detroit has 5 hitters with strikeout rates above 24%. Look for Maeda to dominate this Tigers lineup today, much how Bailey Ober did last night. Let's ride the Over!
This number is at least 0.5 too low! I know that Olson doesn't have elite stuff, but he's got a pretty good slider when he's on his game. Olson fanned 9 of the Twins hitters back on June 24th.
Why is this play a little scary? Well, Olson's K-rate is fairly low at 21.9% and his Whiff rate is only in the 45th percentile. That being said, this Twins lineup strikes out a ton.
Minnesota has 4 hitters with K-rates above 24%. The Twins have the worst overall strikeout rate in baseball, as they fan a little more than 10 times per game. The over is the play!
