Top MLB Player Props for Thursday, July 14th (2022)

There is plenty of money to be made in today’s MLB contests, so here are some of our favorite player props.


Tristan McKenzie: o/u 5.5 Strikeouts

McKenzie has hit this number in five of his last eight starts and is really starting to pitch well. The Guardians face a Tigers team with the 9th highest K-Rate and the 4th highest swing and miss rate. 

The Pick: o5.5 K’s (-105 DraftKings)

Tristan McKenzie: o/u 17.5 Outs 

Sticking with Tristan McKenzie here, his o/u prop of outs is only 17.5, meaning he only has to get to the 6th inning to hit that over. He has only failed to reach the sixth inning once over his last 12 starts. I have no problem laying the -155 for that kind of value.

The Pick: o17.5 outs (-155 DraftKings)

Dakota Hudson o/u 5.5 Hits Allowed  

Dakota Hudson has given up more than five hits in four of his last six starts. Given the collapse of the Cardinals bullpen last night, Cardinals Manager Oliver Marmo may have to leave Hudson in longer than he wants.

The Picks: o5.5 Hits (+105 DraftKings)

Cody Bellinger: o/u .5 Hits

Since the beginning of June, Bellinger has only recorded hits in back-to-back games five times. Last night Bellinger recorded two hits, and I’m betting this trend continues, even against a weaker pitcher like Dakota Hudson.

The Pick: u.5 Hits (+135 DraftKings)

Jose Altuve: o/u 1.5 Total Bases 

Jose Altuve is one of the best hitters in baseball against lefties. 

Altuve vs. Lefties (MLB Ranks)
HR: 7 (T-3)
AVG: .313 (26th)
wOBA: .464 (4th)
wRC+: 212 (2nd)
ISO: .464 (1st)
Hard HIT %: 53.8% (1st)

With those numbers, take the over on total bases against Marco Gonzales every chance you get.

The Pick: o1.5 Bases (+105 DraftKings)

Jose Altuve: o/u .5 HR 

As I mentioned above, Altuve dominates left-handed pitching. He has already hit a dinger against Detmer in his career and is worth a little sprinkle on his HR prop.

The Pick: Altuve To Hit a HR (+280 DraftKings)
