MLB player prop bets for Friday, June 3

Tyler Anderson, Under 4.5 strikeouts (-115)

The Los Angeles Dodgers starter has seen a higher-than-usual strikeout rate this season compared to previous years of his career, and his stretch of high-strikeout totals should come to an end Friday night. He will get a matchup with the New York Mets lineup that averages the fifth-fewest K’s per game.

Albert Pujols, Under 0.5 hits (+115)

The St. Louis Cardinals first baseman has a .210 batting average in his first year back with the organization, but he has been especially bad against right-handed pitchers in 2022. He will get a matchup against Chicago Cubs starter Marcus Stroman, who has a 3.95 ERA this season, and Pujols is hitting .132 against righties this season.

Austin Riley, Over 1.5 total bases (-150)

The Atlanta Braves third baseman has been fantastic at the plate recently as he goes into Friday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies with an 11-game hitting streak, recording multiple hits in three consecutive games. Austin Riley gets the advantage of playing at higher elevation and has recorded at least two total bases in five straight matchups.
