Baseball rolls on for Memorial Day Weekend and there is plenty of action this afternoon! There are a few stellar matchups today throughout the day. I am firing at 60% for the MLB Player Props this season and look to continue that momentum today! Below are my three MLB player prop best bets for the action. Let me dive right into it!
MLB Player Props Best Bets – Sunday, May 29th, 2022
Yuli Gurriel Over 1.5 Total Bases
The Houston Astros finish up their series against the Seattle Mariner this afternoon. Marco Gonzales will get the start for the Mariners and the Astros have had plenty of success against Gonzales. One Astros hitter who has plenty of success against Gonzales is Yuli Gurriel. In fact, in his career against Gonzales, Gurriel is batting .292/.320/.542. This season the Astros have faced Gonzales in two different games and Gurriel has two doubles and a single. The Astros offense has been struggling this weekend against the Mariners and I expect them to break out against Gonzales. I love this MLB Player Prop to get over the total bases.
Tyler Anderson Over 4.5 Strikeouts
Tyler Anderson gets the start this afternoon for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Anderson has been on a tear for the Dodgers in the month of May. In fact, Anderson has struck out at least five batters in all four starts this month. Furthermore, Anderson faced the Diamondbacks on May 17th, where he struck out seven batters. Tyler Anderson has a 9.6 strikeouts per nine innings rate this season in away games. The Arizona Diamondbacks rank #29 in team strikeouts at 9.25 per game. Last night, the Diamondback struck out 16 times against Dodger pitchers.
Zach Davies Under 14.5 Outs Issued
Zach Davies gets the start on the mound against the Dodgers in the series finale. Davies has struggled against the Dodgers this season to say the least. In fact, in two starts this season against the Dodgers, Davies has not made it past the fourth inning. Further, he has allowed at least three earned runs in that span against the Dodgers. Furthermore, the Dodgers’ offense has been on fire this weekend against the Diamondbacks’ pitching. I expect Davies to continue to struggle against the Dodgers. Take the Under on this MLB Player Prop.
