*Odds via BetMGM as of Monday afternoon.
The San Diego Padres open a three-game series with the division-rival San Francisco Giants on Monday night at Oracle Park.
The Padres have struggled to meet lofty expectations this season as they currently sit fourth in the NL West. But San Diego has shown positive signs of late, winning seven of its last 10 games.
This trip to San Francisco won't be easy as the Giants have won eight of their last 10.
One reason for the Padres' subpar play is the struggles of superstar Juan Soto.
Our algorithm has identified an edge on a Soto player prop at BetMGM — it is expecting the outfielder to turn the corner against the Giants.
Our models consider quantitative and qualitative factors for every angle of the game — including rest, matchups, stylistic differences, lingering injuries, history and more — to come up with a fair value line for every MLB player prop on the market.
Juan Soto Player Prop Prediction, Projection
Soto has been struggling. There's no doubt about that.
He is batting .252 and slugging .459. Those numbers are a fry cry from what we have become accustomed to in Soto's young career. To make matters worse, he has been awful in the month of June, batting .214 with just one home run.
But this could be the night Soto flips the switch.
The model indicates Soto's RBI total for Padres vs. Giants is way too low. BetMGM has set his RBI total tonight at 0.5, with +190 to the over and -250 to the under. That is the best price on the over in the market.
A +190 line gives Soto implied odds of 34.48% to record an RBI. While Soto has been struggling, he's had an RBI in three of his last seven games (43%).
This will be the first start of the season for Giants pitcher Ryan Walker.
The model predicts Soto will have 0.6 RBI against the Giants. That's good enough for a 9% 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.
Pick: Juan Soto Over 0.5 RBI (+190)
