Today’s Best MLB Props

Luis Castillo Over 4.5 K’s

(-125, Caesars)

Luis Castillo has been solid this season, especially from a strikeout perspective – he has a 28% K% on the year. This Red Sox team has been hot, but the back of this order features 5 hitters with a 21% K% or better this season, with four of those five striking out at least 24% of the time against RHPs. Look for Castillo to take advantage of this stretch of hitters on his way to at least 5 K’s. 

Diamondbacks Over 5.5 Team Total

(+110, DraftKings Sportsbook)

This is a big number for the Dbacks, but Kyle Muller and this A’s bullpen is very bad, and this Arizona lineup has hit LHPs well since the start of last season as five hitters in this lineup have at least a .190 ISO against soputhpaws. 


Jarred Kelenic to Hit a HR

(+425, DraftKings Sportsbook)

Jarred Kelenic has been crushing RHPs this season to a tune of .257 ISO and a .356 wOBA. He now gets a matchup in a hitter-friendly ballpark against Nick Pivetta who has struggled mightily with power this year, especially against LHHs where he is allowing a .317 ISO this season.
