- Tony Sartori sees value on two pitchers and three hitters, including Freddie Freeman.
- Check out his PrizePicks props below.
Tuesday’s MLB slate features 16 games, which means there are plenty of player props to take advantage of across the board.
Player props have become among the most popular bets in the industry, but while the amount of states with legalized gambling is growing, some may feel left out.
With PrizePicks, you get the opportunity to essentially parlay game prop over/unders with cash payouts depending on how many you get correct on that day’s slate.
Therefore, let’s take a look at some of the options on Tuesday’s Major League Baseball slate and see where we can find some value to turn a profit.
A quick refresher if you aren’t familiar with PrizePicks: you can combine up to five different O/U player props to payout up to 10x your wager.
You can do a Flex Play or a Power Play. A Flex Play gives you lesser odds, but you can win money even if you don’t nail every pick. Meanwhile, a Power Play is similar to a parlay — it’s all or nothing.
Here’s how I would approach today’s MLB slate.
What is PrizePicks? A daily fantasy operator — meaning they’re available in more states (30) than sports betting is! — PrizePicks offers a unique opportunity for action on player props in which you parlay two or more plays together.
MLB PrizePicks Plays for Tuesday, June 14
Tony Gonsolin Pitcher Fantasy Score Over 33.5
We have the first matchup of this two-game interstate series as the NL West’s Los Angeles Dodgers host the AL West’s Los Angeles Angels. Right-hander Tony Gonsolin is slated to take the mound for the Dodgers and should be a good candidate to back in this contest.
Through 11 starts this season, Gonsolin is 7-0 with a 1.58 ERA and 0.86 WHIP. His metrics are just as outstanding as Gonsolin boasts a .268 xwOBA, .205 xBA, and .328 xSLG.
The Angels have also struggled mightily against right-handed pitchers. Since May 1, the Angels rank just 29th in the league in BA, 27th in SLG, 27th in OPS, and 27th in wOBA when facing right-handed pitchers on the road.
Freddie Freeman Over 1.5 Hits + Walks
I am also backing a few Dodgers hitters in this game as they are slated to go against right-hander Noah Syndergaard. Through nine starts this season, Syndergaard is 4-4 with a 3.69 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.
His metrics are even worse as he possesses a .349 xwOBA, .279 xBA, and .449 xSLG. Over 24 career plate appearances against Syndergaard, Freeman boasts a .435 BA, .783 SLG, and .515 wOBA.
When facing right-handed pitchers this season, Freeman possesses a .288 BA, .363 OBP, .444 SLG, and .806 OPS.
Trea Turner Hitter Fantasy Score Over 8
The other Dodgers hitter I am backing in this game is Trea Turner. Turner has had great success against right-handed pitchers this season as he boasts a .308 BA, .356 OBP, .471 SLG, and .827 OPS.
Turner’s strong metrics suggest that he should not regress anytime soon as he possesses a .362 xwOBA, .302 xBA, and .474 xSLG. Going over this total in four of his last seven games (57%), Turner should be a good candidate to back once again in this contest.
Logan Gilbert Pitcher Fantasy Score Over 33.5
We have the second matchup of this three-game series as the AL West’s Seattle Mariners host the AL Central’s Minnesota Twins. Right-hander Logan Gilbert is slated to take the mound for Seattle and has been outstanding this season.
Through 12 starts, Gilbert is 6-2 with a 2.41 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. In his lone appearance against the Twins this season, Gilbert allowed just one run on three hits through five innings while racking up seven strikeouts.
Gilbert usually goes deep into games and is a strikeout specialist, so at the very least he will give us a shot at getting over this figure.
Ty France Hitter Fantasy Score Over 8
I am also backing a Mariners hitter in this contest as Ty France has had a great year and is slated to go against right-hander Joe Ryan. When facing right-handed pitchers this season, France boasts a .335 BA, .410 OBP, .497 SLG, and .907 OPS.
France’s metrics are also outstanding this season as he boasts a .376 xwOBA, .304 xBA, .488 xSLG. At home, France has been one of the best players in baseball as he possesses a .396 BA, .479 OBP, .614 SLG, and 1.092 OPS when playing at T-Mobile Park.
