Where To Bet MLB Player Props?

Graeme

One of the great things about sports is individual performances. How many touchdowns will one guy throw? How many points will a basketball player score? A lot of people don’t think of these types of things when it comes to baseball, but MLB Player Props are actually a lot of fun and a great way to bet on a game.

The types of props for a baseball player are much different than a football or basketball player though. The odds are about the same, but the categories are different. We’ll explain this shortly.

MLB Player Props are an exciting way to bet so in this article we’re going to tell you how they work, where to bet them, how to bet them and our strategy for picking winners. Let’s jump right into it.

Where To Bet MLB Player Props:

America: Bovada offers MLB Player Props on the top baseball games each day of the regular season.

Canada: A great book for MLB Player Props is Sports Interaction.

Everywhere Else: I like to bet MLB props at Bet365 Sportsbook.

What are MLB Player Props?

MLB Player Props are when you bet on a player’s individual performance in a game. There are a few different types of these MLB Player Props so we’ll lay those out for you here.

Total Hits, Runs and RBIs (over/under): A number will be set for a player in a game about the total of all these categories combined. You will then pick if the player will go over that number or under it.

Will a player hit a homerun?: Also, listed as an over/under at 0.5. This is a pretty simple bet on whether or not a particular player will hit a homerun in a game. A tough bet as a “good” total is around 40 homeruns in a season and there are 162 games.

Most Hits, Runs and RBIs: Similar to the above play, but this will be between two players on different teams. You choose the player that you think will have the best day in these categories. If he does, you win.

Total Strikeouts (over/under): This is perhaps the most popular and is given to that day’s starting pitchers. A total will be set for the amount of strikeouts that a player might have and you have to bet whether they will go over or under that number.

Most Strikeouts: This will be a match-up between the game’s two starting pitchers where you pick which one will have the most strikeouts. The numbers will be weighted towards the favorite so Clayton Kershaw might be -200 against a lesser pitcher who would be favored +150 or more.

Common MLB Player Props Questions:

What is a typical line on Total Hits, Runs and RBIs?

While strikeouts are more based on the individual player’s season performance, the hitting props are far more static. The line is typically over/under 2.5 total hits, runs and RBIs.

It’s a great line and really intriguing based on the match-up. It almost seems too easy – one homerun and it’s done, but it is never that easy. Walks can ruin your day and a player hitting behind your player that doesn’t do his job can end up costing you money. Sometimes you will go over – WAY over – while other times you will be frustrated by an 0-4. You just never know which makes this so much fun to bet on.

Sportsbooks will adjust the moneyline section of this bet at times as well when they think it is more or less likely. So Bryce Harper at Coors Field against a bad pitcher might be Over 2.5 (-150) or something like that.

How To Bet MLB Player Props:

Bovada: From the sportsbook, select “Baseball” from the menu, then “MLB”. Find the game you like and click it to see all the props offered for the game.

Sports Interaction:: From the left side of the website find “Baseball” and click that. Underneath there you should find “MLB” and an option for “Props” will be listed within.

Bet365 Sportsbook: Right from the homepage find “Baseball” under the list of sports on the right. When you click that, scroll to find “MLB” and the “Props” section will be listed with all the options for that day.

MLB Player Props Betting Strategy:

Hitting streaks are real and if there is a player that has been particularly hot lately, I’d go with him if the match-up is right. I tend to only go with the “over” on the players when the total is high. More runs equals more at-bats and more opportunities to rack up hits, runs and RBIs.

I also like to look at the handedness of the pitchers and the offense that they are going against, as well as the strikeout percentage of both the pitcher and offenses when deciding on a strikeout over/under. Strikeouts are up across the league, but I also want to make sure I am taking a pitcher who will pitch deep into the game.
