Prop Betting Expert
Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for MLB action on Tuesday, July 5. Check out his top play for the diamond action below.
- Jose Ramirez (CLE) Over 0.5 Hits/Seiya Suzuki (CHC) Over 0.5 Hits (-111)
- Rhys Hoskins (PHI) Over 0.5 Doubles (+340)
- Rhys Hoskins (PHI) Over 0.5 HRs (+280)
Jose Ramirez (CLE) Over 0.5 Hits/Seiya Suzuki (CHC) Over 0.5 Hits (-111)
While Jose Ramirez isn't going through his strongest stretch over his last couple games, he’s still recorded 1+ hit in 20 of his last 25 games. Ramirez has faced Hutchinson six times recording three hits, with a HR & a double. Ramirez is batting .308 against RHP this season, .309 on the road, and .321 during night games. After hitting an inside the park HR last night, I think Suzuki comes out with another strong game.
Despite missing over a month with Injury, Suzuki looked back in form going 2-4 in his first game back. His matchup is great, going against Jason Alexander who currently holds a .322 OBA. Alexander throws his sinker over 55% of the time, and that happens to be Suzuki’s best pitch batting .464 against it this year.
Rhys Hoskins (PHI) Over 0.5 Doubles (+340)/Rhys Hoskins (PHI) Over 0.5 HRs (+280
Since June 3rd, Rhys Hoskins is slashing .320/.432/.680 with nine HRs and 18 XBHs with a 16% Barrel%. Hoskins has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball, and before yesterday's day off he had four HRs in his last five games. Today he gets a favorable matchup against Paolo Espino, who he’s 3-8 against with a home run and a double. Espino has been a reliable starter for the Nationals, but with a 45% flyball rate, a .273% xOBA, and only one pitch with above a 14% putaway percentage.
Espino lives on attacking the strike zone and generating weak contact, tossing very hittable pitches towards one of the hottest hitters in baseball is definitely a risky strategy. There is some rain in Philadelphia today, but I think we will see multiple Phillies go yard today. Over 1.5 Total Bases is definitely a safer play, but at -125 i'll take my chances with the longer odds.
