- There's a plethora of solid options on PrizePicks tonight, but we're focused on the NL West tonight.
- The Dodgers look to keep hitting against the Nationals, while the Diamondbacks have some sneaky value against Carlos Rodon and San Francisco.
- Continue reading for a full breakdown of the top PrizePicks plays from tonight in Major League Baseball.
Tuesday’s MLB slate features 15 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, July 26
Mitch White Pitcher Fantasy Score Over 24.5
After dropping the first game of this series, I expect the Dodgers to rebound and grab a victory as right-hander Mitch White is slated to take the mound.
White is coming off one of the best performances of his career as he took a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the San Francisco Giants. That performance was yet another strong outing from White as he continues to prove to be a valuable asset in the Los Angeles rotation.
His one outlier performance against the Cardinals has hampered White’s numbers this season as he allowed six earned runs on 10 hits through five innings. If you discard that poor outing, White has allowed just seven earned runs on 21 hits in his last 33 1/3 innings.
I expect this strong pitching to continue against a weak Washington lineup. Since June 1, the Nationals rank just 22nd in the league in BA, 25th in SLG, 23rd in OPS and 22nd in wOBA.
Trea Turner Hitter Fantasy Score Over 8
We are also backing a few Los Angeles hitters in this game as they are slated to go against right-hander Josiah Gray. Through 17 starts this season, Gray is 7-6 with a 4.40 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.
Gray has been in particularly poor form recently. Over his last three starts, Gray is 1-2 with a 7.02 ERA and 1.60 WHIP.
In his one start against the Dodgers this year, Gray got shelled as he surrendered seven earned runs on five hits in three innings. Trea Turner soared over this total with one swing of the bat in that game as he hit a two-run homer off Gray in the first inning.
Turner continues to be one of the best hitters in baseball as he boasts a .306 BA, .496 SLG and .848 OPS this season. Over his last seven games, Turner has recorded eight or more fantasy points five times (71%).
Mookie Betts Hitter Fantasy Score Over 8
The other Dodgers hitter that we are backing in this contest is Mookie Betts. While Turner started the game off with a bang in the first inning, Betts followed It up with a three-run homer off Gray in the second inning.
Homering once again in the fourth inning of that game, Betts soared over this fantasy total. Like Turner, Betts has been in good form recently as he has registered eight or more fantasy points in three of his last five games (60%).
This is a matchup where I expect Betts to continue his success. Since 2020, Betts boasts a .274 BA, .360 OBP and .542 SLG when facing right-handed pitchers.
Jordan Luplow Over 0.5 Total Bases
We are staying in the NL West and looking at the Giants/Diamondbacks game for a few more props. We will be backing a few Arizona hitters in this game as they are slated to go against left-hander Carlos Rodon.
We are getting some generous lines on a few Arizona players because of how good Rodon has been this season. That being said, he struggled in his last outing against the Diamondbacks as Rodon surrendered four runs on five hits in five innings.
In that game, Luplow doubled against Rodon. In games that he starts, Luplow has gone over this total in six of his last eight contests (75%). Luplow’s power is on display when facing left-handed pitchers this season as he boasts a .575 SLG and .885 OPS.
Christian Walker Hitter Fantasy Score Over 4.5
The other Arizona hitter we are backing in this game is Christian Walker. Walker has been in good form recently as he has gone over this fantasy total in four of his last seven games (57%).
Like Luplow, Walker has had much more success against left-handed pitchers this season as he boasts a .282 BA, .387 OBP and .564 SLG. All we need from Walker in this game is a single and then any of a walk/run/RBI to get us over this total.
