The MLB betting world heads into the weekend with a huge slate on Friday, Sept. 17. With the help of the Awesemo expert MLB player prop betting tool, below are three of Awesemo’s best MLB bets and odds for betting picks tonight.
Best MLB Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks
Wil Crowe Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-117)
Wil Crowe is the latest pitcher to target against the lowly Marlins. Miami has struck out in bunches to every pitcher they have faced since they went to the youth movement midseason. Even Erick Fedde was able to strike out nine Marlins. Crowe is a mediocre pitcher but even a mediocre pitcher can get five strikeouts in three innings against Miami. This is the lock of the night, as it is every night the Marlins are facing a pitcher with a heartbeat.
Zack Wheeler Over 6.5 Strikeouts (-154)
Zack Wheeler is facing his former team in the Mets tonight. Even though the Met lineup has been stingy with strikeouts, Wheeler is also much improved as a pitcher since he left New York. Featuring increased velocity and pounding the strike zone with various swing-and-miss offerings, Wheeler has had one of the better seasons of any pitchers in the majors. Staying longer in games by limiting walks also gives him more opportunity to face the pitcher at the bottom of the lineup, therefore racking up a couple more strikeouts.
Pete Alonso to Hit a Home Run (+500)
The Awesemo model loves the odds for Juan Soto and Pete Alonso to hit home runs tonight. Alonso has the much better launch angle of the two and has showed more power this season. Wheeler is fantastic, but the odds at +500 for Alonso to go deep are too good. Wheeler has allowed only 29% hard contact this season. He is also barely walking anyone, so Alonso should get plenty of chances to swing at pitches in the zone. Alonso had a forgettable 2020, but he has picked it up this year, with a .525 xSLG. He should not be over +300 to hit a home run against any pitcher in MLB, and he is at very favorable +500 odds tonight.
