Gary Sanchez ($4,300 FD & $5,400 DK): Right-handed power batters typically fare well in the Rogers Centre. I don’t know what it is about the stadium because it’s a dome, so there are no environmental factors but year after year right-handed power bats kill at the Rogers Centre. The Yankees are also favored at – 185 with a 9 under/over. Sanchez should be a solid part of this offensive effort as they’ll be facing the left-handed Clayton Richard. Richard has started only twice so far this season and has yet to make it past the fifth inning. Toronto’s bullpen is sporting a 4.21 season ERA, which is ranked 12th in the Majors. But you have to remember, the Blue Jays are in the midst of a six game losing streak and have an extremely depleted bullpen. The Yankees catcher is slightly pricey but 100% worth it tonight.
Edwin Encarnacion ($3,700 FD & $4,100 DK): Encarnacion owns a .389 BA with three homers against Wade Miley. Although I do think Miley tosses a solid game, I also think Encarnacion continues his success against Houston’s left-hander.
Whit Merrifield ($3,800 FD & $4,700 DK): Every one likes going against E-Rod today and for good reason. Kansas City has been striking out at a massive rate and on top of that producing minimal runs over a two week span. This has occurred in K.C. before, and they usually have a go-to remedy. That remedy is small ball. Merrifield is likely the man to benefit off some solid Kansas City small ball. Stolen Bases, Runs, maybe even an RBI off of a well executed hit and run. Don’t expect the long ball but there are still fantasy points to be had. Merrifield is currently 5-6 against E-Rod with one stolen base.
Kris Bryant ($4,200 FD & $5,200 DK): Bryant has two homers in seven at-bats against Jeff Hoffman. The Cubs are at -200 with a 10.5 under/over. Hoffman is currently allowing a .375 BA with two homers to opposing right-handed batters in 32 at-bats. Kris Bryant? Lock him in please.
Corey Seager ($3,500 FD & $4,700 DK): The Los Angeles Dodger left-handed batters: I love all of them. Joc, Muncy, Bellinger etc. I don’t know where to start. How about the fact that opposing pitcher Taylor Clarke has a 7.56 ERA over his past two starts, or that opposing lefties are hitting .297 with two dingers in 37 at-bats. How about this one: In his last start he allowed five earned over two innings pitched to the Colorado Rockies. Corey Seager and the Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed batters, one of my most confident plays of the day.
Cody Bellinger ($4,600 FD & $5,800 DK):
Everything that I mentioned for Corey Seager applies to Cody Bellinger. Except there is one more advantage for Bellinger which is, he is expected to be in that cleanup spot. This could be huge for potential RBI opportunities. Los Angeles is favored at -220 with a 9.5 under/over.
Joc Pederson ($3,800 FD & $5,600 DK): Do I have to say all of this again. I’ll add one prediction here, leadoff home run for Joc Pederson. Los Angeles left-handed batters, love them tonight.
David Dahl ($3,500 FD & $4,300 DK): has two home runs in six at-bats against Kyle Hendricks. Similar to the Edwin call, I do think Hendricks performs well tonight. With that said, Dahl could hit another home run against Hendricks on a long ball kind of day in Chicago.
Let’s go big or go home! I’ve made it pretty clear that I like Wade Miley tonight, with Seattle striking out the way they have over the past week. We’re going to be locking the OVER in for the first section. The next prop including Encarnacion is easy to me, 1.5 runs + RBI should definitely be OVER as well.
Encarnacion is batting .389 with three homers in 25 at-bats against Miley. For the third and fourth picks including Bregman and Brantley, I will be updating this article when the confirmed pitcher is announced for Seattle. With that said, the last pick including Mallex Smith, is an easy UNDER for me. Mallex should be going L/L for most of the game and if he’s not leading off, this prop is a definite under to me. Smith is currently batting .220 against lefties and is even worse against right-handed pitchers with a .186 BA. Three of these five plays are easily locked in for me, Play MLB Prop Games NOW and get 100 percent bonus.

Seattle will be starting Andrew Moore, and by every indication he is NOT ready for this start. In Triple-A this season he was rocking a 12.98 ERA in four starts. Prior, he allowed massive number in limited starts in Double-A. Not quite sure what they see here but we are going to take the over on both the Brantley and Bregman props. So, to be clear from left to right; Over, over, over, over and Mallex Smith’s parlay I predict the under.
