Alex Bregman Player Prop Prediction, Projection
Bregman has struggled to get his bat going this season. The two-time All-Star is batting just .247 this season with 13 home runs and 59 RBI.
However, Bregman has sneakily been heating up. His batting average has risen close to 10 points since the All-Star break and he has three RBI in his last three games.
The model indicates the likelihood of Bregman tallying at least one RBI is higher than what the sportsbooks believe. BetMGM has set the total for over 0.5 RBI at +145, while the under is -190. That's the best price on the over in the market.
The model predicts Bregman will have 0.8 RBI tonight, good enough for about a 12% betting edge on the over.
Do keep in mind that these algorithms work best when you wager with the same size unit for each individual bet.
