  • Bryce Harper, Brandon Crawford and three others highlight PrizePicks plays for Tuesday in MLB.
  • Three plays come from the Phillies-Brewers matchup.
  • Read below to try to formulate your parlays.

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.

Enter PrizePicks.

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 7

Ranger Suarez Pitcher Fantasy Score Under 24.5

Phillies vs. Brewers 8:10 p.m. ET

Tuesday night features first matchup of a three-game series as the Milwaukee Brewers host the Philadelphia Phillies. Left-hander Ranger Suarez is projected to take the mound for Philadelphia and should be a good fade candidate in this contest.

Through 10 starts this season, Suarez possesses a 4.69 ERA and 1.563 WHIP. His metrics are not much better as Suarez possesses a .345 xwOBA, .272 xBA, and .450 xSLG.

In 20 career plate appearances against Suarez, this current Brewers lineup boasts a .378 xBA, .526 xSLG, and .433 xwOBA. Suarez has now gone under this fantasy score total in each of his last three starts.

Bryce Harper Under 1.5 Hits + Walks

Phillies vs. Brewers 8:10 p.m. ET

I am also fading a few Philadelphia hitters in this game as the Phillies are slated to go against right-hander Jason Alexander. In his one start this season, Alexander allowed just two runs on seven hits over seven innings.

Alexander’s metrics back up his strong performance as he posted a .286 xwOBA, .252 xBA, and .295 xSLG. This game will be Bryce Harper’s first career outing against Alexander, so it could take him a few times through the batting order to figure out how he throws.

Harper has now gone under this total in eight of his last 14 games (57%).

Nick Castellanos Hitter Fantasy Score Under 7.5

Phillies vs. Brewers 8:10 p.m. ET

The other Phillies hitter I am fading in this matchup is Nick Castellanos. Like Harper, Castellanos has never faced Alexander before, and it could take him a few times through the batting order to figure out how he throws.

Castellanos’ numbers take a big dip when facing right-handed pitchers this season as he possesses a mere .236 BA. Castellanos has gone under this fantasy score total in each of his last five games.

Brandon Crawford Over 0.5 Runs + RBIs

Rockies vs. Giants 9:45 p.m. ET

Tuesday night also features the first matchup of a three-game NL West series as the San Francisco Giants host the Colorado Rockies. I am backing a few Giants hitters in this game as right-hander German Marquez is slated to take the mound for the Rockies.

There is no way to sugarcoat this, but German Marquez has been absolutely terrible this season. Through 10 starts, Marquez possesses a 6.71 ERA and 1.618 WHIP.

Marquez has now allowed four or more earned runs in seven of his last nine outings. Meanwhile, Brandon Crawford has registered at least one run/RBI in each of his last two games.

In 35 career plate appearances against Marquez, Crawford boasts a .344 BA, .531 SLG, and .396 wOBA.

Joc Pederson Hitter Fantasy Score Over 7.5

Rockies vs. Giants 9:45 p.m. ET

The other Giants batter I am backing in this game is Joc Pederson. In 25 career at-bats against Marquez, Pederson boasts a .480 SLG as he has homered and doubled twice.

Pederson is a completely different player when batting against right-handed pitchers this season. In 132 plate appearances against right-handers this season, Pederson boasts a .278 BA, .356 OBP, .600 SLG, and .956 OPS.
