Ranger Suarez has been great as a reliever for the Phillies this year but Philadelphia is turning to him to start on Monday against the Nationals. Can Suarez maintain his impact from the jump? Check out our picks and predictions.
The trade deadline fallout is the theme of our MLB props today: we like an AL East slugger, whose team made a big splash, to stay hot, the other side of a massive blockbuster to have a blah debut, and a big addition keeping the MLB's top team surging.
Heisman Trophy favorite — and possible first-overall pick — Spencer Rattler leads an OU squad that is the odds-on favorite to win the Big 12 for a seventh straight year. But is there another program that could give the Sooners a run for their money?
The Colorado Rockies have been dreadful on the road this season... but have won two of their last six away games. They face a struggling Padres starter tonight and have a great price to keep it close early on, highlighting our best MLB props for Thursday.
Alabama is the betting favorite in the SEC, despite bringing in new starters at several key positions including quarterback. Is this the year Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide get knocked off their conference perch? Check out our SEC betting preview.
The Yankees traded for a big bat Wednesday night but the theme of Thursday's game will be pitching. We expect Cy Young favorite Gerrit Cole to keep the Rays in check as we're backing New York to complete a three-game sweep in our MLB picks for today.
After back-to-back 11-run games that went Over, we're expecting the offense to cool down in the third contest of this NL Central series. Find out who we like in this Tyler Mahle and Zach Davies pitching matchup in our Reds vs. Cubs picks and predictions.
Zack Wheeler leads MLB in innings pitched and we expect him to go deep tonight against a depleted Nats lineup. We're also fading J.A. Happ, who has been repeatedly pounded. Check out all our MLB prop bet picks for July 28.
Pitching is the theme of our MLB prop bets for today, highlighted by Julio Urias getting a rematch against Logan Webb, plus St. Louis and Cleveland sending tough righties to the mound and Kenta Maeda finally finding his groove.
Shane McClanahan has allowed just five runs over his last three starts, holding foes to a .200 batting average. He faces a floundering Yankees offense today, putting good value in the Rays to win and the Under.
Boston has gotten the better of Toronto this season, winning seven of 11 meetings. However, the Blue Jays have had plenty of success against tonight’s starter, Nick Pivetta. So, who has the edge tonight? See our thoughts below in our MLB betting picks.
Astros rookie Luis Garcia has given up two earned runs or fewer in 14 of 18 starts this year. He's facing a Seattle team that struggles against righties, making him a good bet to pitch well again tonight — and highlighting today's best MLB prop bets.
The Mets took the opener of their interleague series against the Blue Jays, but are home 'dogs today with an All-Star pitcher on the mound. Considering Toronto has struggled against non-Texas opponents lately, we like the MLB betting value with New York.
A familiar face returns to Flushing tonight when former Met Steven Matz takes the mound as a member of the Blue Jays. Matz is wildly unpredictable, but Toronto's offense is too good for us to pass on them at plus money tonight.
The Angels are second in the MLB in OPS against lefties and are facing a struggling J.A. Happ and a Twins team that appears to be waving the white flag on the season. LAA should jump on Minnesota early, highlighting our best MLB prop bets for today.
Central division leaders clash when the Brewers host the White Sox tonight. Both teams have strong starters going — and dynamite bullpens — but we're giving the edge to the better Chicago lineup, which has great MLB betting value as an underdog.
The Giants are the first team to 60 wins, after taking two of the first three on the road from the Dodgers. But L.A. has its ace on the mound tonight, so we're expecting the home team to deliver as a big MLB betting favorite.
We're Flexen' our prop bet muscles in the MLB today, by looking at some former KBO stars! We're looking at Chris Flexen to stay hot in Seattle and Kwang-Hyun Kim to keep dealing — plus Charlie Morton (no-KBO ties) to continue tormenting a division rival.
The Red Sox dropped two of three in New York last weekend, but after thumping the Blue Jays twice are favored against the Yankees at Fenway Park. We like Boston to get some revenge on the Bronx tonight in our MLB picks and predictions.
The Giants are big underdogs in the rubber match between NL West titans. San Fran is unlucky to not be going for the sweep, however, and their MLB betting value is too good to pass up tonight against the Dodgers.
