Here are our favorite MLB prop bets for Tuesday, April 25:
If you’re looking for some great value on the Tuesday card, look no further than Eloy Jimenez to go over 1.5 total bases at +140 odds. Jimenez is batting just .196 with two homers and seven RBIs this season, but he has really enjoyed his matchup with Jose Berrios in the past. Jimenez is 9 for 23 with a double, a homer and three RBIs against Berrios in his career. That’s a .391 batting average in a decent sample size, and that makes it hard not to go to this one tonight.
Jimenez also seems like he is on the verge of busting out of his slump. He was on a six-game hitting streak before going 0 for 3 in Monday’s 5-2 loss to Toronto. Now, Jimenez will just be looking for his first multi-hit game since March. We’ll take either that or an extra base hit here.
Bet: Jimenez Over 1.5 Total Bases (+140)
Charlie Morton’s swing-and-miss stuff isn’t what it once was, as the 39-year-old has only had one game in which he struck out six batters this season. However, Morton now gets to go up against the Marlins, who are tied for ninth in the league in strikeout rate this year (24.7%). Miami’s strikeout rate also happens to go up against righties, as it’s 25.2% and the seventh-highest mark in the league in these matchups.
The Marlins are also coming off a game in which Spencer Strider made them look silly. He struck out 13 batters over 8.0 innings in that one, and that makes it difficult to lay off Morton to come away with six strikeouts. He did his best work when pitching in Atlanta last year, so he likes this ballpark.
Bet: Morton Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-132)
The Twins are favored in a game with a total of 6.5 tonight, which means it’s probably a good idea to back the starting pitcher in some capacity. And when looking at ways to bet on Joe Ryan tonight, the one that stands out is his outs recorded total. Ryan has pitched at least 6.0 innings in all four of his starts this season, yet you can bet him at reasonable odds to pitch six innings again.
Ryan also happened to pitch 7.0 innings of one-run ball in a road start against the Yankees on Thursday, April 13th, and he struck out 10 batters in that game. The righty clearly isn’t intimidated by this matchup, and he should be comfortable heading back to Minnesota. Ryan was significantly better at Target Field than he was on the road last year.
Bet: Ryan Over 17.5 Outs Recorded (-155)
