Prop Bets

Prop BetOdds
Yonny Chirinos OVER 3.5 Ks
Yonny Chirinos UNDER 3.5 Ks

Prediction:

Yonny Chirinos has been a solid piece of Tampa Bay’s dominant rotation this year. After missing 2021 and most of 2022 due to injuries, Chirinos has finally claimed some key playing time. That being said, he got hammered in his last start against the Royals, allowing 8 ER in 5.1 IP. Chirinos has yet to strike out more than 4 batters in one outing, limited by shortened games as a result of his injury history. Take the under.

Pick:


Prop BetOdds
Yandy Diaz OVER 0.5 Hits
Yandy Diaz UNDER 0.5 Hits

Prediction:

Yandy Diaz has been one of the most consistent players at the plate this season. He hit .326 in April, .300 in May, and .325 in June. He had an especially strong past week, going 10 for 20 (.500) at the plate, despite Tampa Bay’s recent struggles as a team. Diaz ranks 5th in the entire MLB in batting average and should be a good bet to get at least one hit once again. He had 3 multi-hit games last week. Take the over.

Prop BetOdds
Christian Walker OVER 0.5 RBIs
Christian Walker UNDER 0.5 RBIs

Prediction:

Christian Walker has been one of the MLB’s best players in the month of June, hitting .367 with a 1.070 OPS. He currently has an 11-game hitting streak, of which he’s gone 18 for 43 (.419) during, and has a hit in 19 of 23 games this month. During his hitting streak, he’s also driven in 11 runs, averaging 1 per game. It’s no guarantee that Walker will get a RBI every single game, but with how he’s been playing, I’d take the over.
