MLB player prop bets: Monday, April 17
Jesus Luzardo, Over 7.5 strikeouts (-110)
The Miami Marlins starter Jesus Luzardo has a great matchup to rack up a high number of Ks as the San Francisco Giants are striking out a ton this season. San Francisco is striking out 11.1 times per game early on, and that is at least one more K than every team in the league. Luzardo has a 9.9 career K/9, and there’s a great chance he hits the over in this spot.
Esteury Ruiz, Over 0.5 hits (-130)
The Oakland Athletics centerfielder has 16 hits in 16 games this season with a .308 batting average, and he’s getting a good matchup against the Chicago Cubs on Monday night. Ruiz has a hit in seven consecutive games and will face starter Hayden Wesneski, who struggled through two starts this season. He’s allowed 11 hits over six innings so far, and Ruiz has a good chance to extend this hitting streak.
Corbin Burnes, Over 6.5 strikeouts (-160)
The Milwaukee Brewers ace returned to his dominant self in his last start after a couple of duds to open the season. Burnes struck out eight batters in eight shutout innings in last week’s win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, and now he’ll face a Seattle Mariners lineup that strikes out 9.3 times per game, which is the eighth-most in MLB.
