3 PrizePicks MLB Props for Wednesday, April 5

Baseball fans have been blessed with a packed slate of day games on Wednesday as 20 teams will take the field before 2:15 PM Eastern. Cy Young candidates in both leagues will be on the bump, from Dylan Cease, Jacob deGrom, and Gerrit Cole in the AL, to Corbin Burnes and Aaron Nola in the National League.

If you’re looking for something to do on a warm Wednesday afternoon, nine of the 13 games scheduled have tickets available for less than $10. Most fans would still make it home for dinner, with the average pace of MLB games hovering close to two and a half hours.

Whether you’ll be in the bleachers or monitoring scores from the office, there are player prop wagering opportunities with enticing value to be aware of before the first pitch. Our best bets for a crowded midweek schedule are just ahead.

Logan Webb OVER 4.5 Strikeouts

While this play could look prisoner of the moment on the heels of Webb’s career-high 12 strikeouts on Opening Day, there is data to support it. Including last week’s outing, the leader of the Giants’ staff has 60 starts dating back to the beginning of the 2021 season.

Webb has struck out five or more batters in 42 games, including his only appearance against Chicago’s Southside team. The White Sox were the seventh-best team in 2022 at avoiding strikeouts, but their ability to do so has changed slightly through an early sample of this season.

Their strikeout rate has jumped nearly 1.5% from 2022’s number, giving us more confidence Webb will cash this bet. Take the Over with confidence!

Randy Arozarena OVER 1.5 Total Bases

The Rays’ left fielder has played a significant part in Tampa’s 5-0 start to the 2023 season. Arozarena has a five-game hitting streak to begin the campaign, including three doubles and a home run, and has racked up 12 total bases since Opening Day.

Arozarena’s career splits indicate he’s much more dangerous against left-handed pitching, and he’ll face Washington’s Patrick Corbin on Wednesday. Poor Corbin doesn't have the same dynamic stuff that he used to.

In just under 500 career games, Arozarena's OPS against lefties is 205 points higher than when facing right-handers. We intend to capitalize on his affinity for knocking around southpaws in the nation’s capital this afternoon.

Eugenio Suarez OVER 0.5 Total Bases

Seattle’s cleanup hitter has also put together a productive start to the season. Suarez has three straight multi-hit games and has reached base safely in five of six to begin the year.

The Mariners hung 11 runs on the Angels yesterday, which marked the first time that Los Angeles had allowed more than three runs in a game. Shohei Ohtani takes the mound tonight for LA in the rubber match; the two-way phenom won his only start at Safeco Field last season by striking out six across six scoreless innings.

Suarez went 2-for-3 against the Cy Young and MVP candidate in their only meeting last season and will look to extend his hitting streak to four on Wednesday. We’ll play the third baseman to get at least one base hit in this matchup.
