MLB Player Props for Tuesday, July 5

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.
