Action Network’s MLB player prop projections are live for the regular season. One of the best picks Monday, May 8, is White Sox starting pitcher Dylan Cease in White Sox vs. Royals.

Projections found a juicy edge on Cease’s strikeout total of 5.5 vs. the Royals Monday.

MLB model projections crunch odds for every player and designate both a grade and edge percentage based on how strong the pick is.

Monday’s Dylan Cease prop is an “A” pick from our model.

In fact, at the time of writing, it’s the best strikeout prop on the entire May 8 MLB board.

Dylan Cease Player Props, Pick

After analyzing our MLB player prop projections, the best bet for Cease vs. the Royals is over his strikeout total.

Model projections have this number almost two full K’s off. The consensus total around the market is 5.5. However, we made the fair strikeout total for Cease vs. the Royals more like 7.5, offering a Grade-A pick and 19% edge for over bettors. 

The Sox right-hander is facing the Royals the first time tonight, after drawing them three times last year. Cease in 2022 posted strikeout totals of 8, 9 and 9 in those respective starts, cashing the over in all three.

Cease’s strikeout total tonight is as expensive as 5.5 -130, but we’ll roll with BetMGM’s odds of 5.5 at -125.
