Best MLB Prop Bets Today

  • Justin Verlander to record a win
  • Freddy Peralta OVER 15.5 outs recorded
  • Julio Urias OVER 2.5 earned runs allowed

Justin Verlander to record a win

Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander has dominated the New York Yankees this season, and in previous seasons, and I expect him to do so again tonight. 

New York has really struggled at the dish this season, and Verlander has held the Yankees to just two runs over 13.0 innings of work. 

The Yankees have Carlos Rodon on the mound, and the team is just 1-7 in his eight starts, including an outing where he allowed five runs in 2.2 innings to the Astros. 

I expect Houston to jump all over Rodon, setting Verlander up to notch another win. His teams (Houston and the New York Mets) are a combined 9-2 in his last 11 starts, and he’s posted a sub-3.00 ERA over that stretch.

Freddy Peralta OVER 15.5 outs recorded

Milwaukee Brewers starter Freddy Peralta is undervalued in the betting market on Friday – even though he’s facing a tough Philadelphia Phillies offense. 

Peralta is 11-8 with a 3.95 ERA and 3.86 FIP this season, and he had a great month of August. In five starts, Peralta cleared this outs recorded prop in each matchup, racking up five wins and 46 punch outs while posting a 2.10 ERA. 

That’s pretty dominant, and I think he’ll be able to get through 5.1 innings to clear this prop on Friday. In 25 starts, Peralta has recorded at least 16 outs 19 times.

Julio Urias OVER 2.5 earned runs allowed

I have to fade Julio Urias and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. 

Urias allowed six runs in his last outing, and the Dodgers are now taking on the No. 1 offense against left-handed pitchers in the Atlanta Braves. 

This season, Urias has a 4.41 ERA and 4.43 FIP, pitching much worse than he did in 2022. I think he will struggle with an elite Atlanta offense that put up eight runs on the Dodgers last night.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
