2017 MLB Regular Season Player Prop Bet Odds Part 1
With less than 2 months until the regular season begins, we are starting to see some prop bets show up online and in Las Vegas.
Come back by the start of March to see Over/Under wins for all 30 MLB clubs, and also when they decide to implement individual player prop bets.
With so many MVP candidates and Cy Young type pitchers, we are favoring Over a lot more than Under yet again in 2017.
We compiled a 6 – 0 individual player bet prop record, and were not so hot on these props listed, but we still managed a .500 record even for those.
part 2 will be at the end of February..
2017 MLB REGULAR SEASON Player PROPS
MOST HR’s By: Any Player
Over 46½ (-110)
Under 46½ (-110)
Mark Trumbo also belted 47 bombs in 2016 to led the Major Leagues.
Kris Bryant also will challenge 50 HRs pretty soon here.
Nolan Arenado is fresh off back to back 40+ HRs years. I think there is another level for this guy, and with Ian Desmond in his lineup, and a full year of Trevor Story (who was on pace for 46 HRs himself during his rookie season before injury sidelined him for the rest of the campaign right after the ALL – Star Break).
Give me the over. Someone should hit 47 – 50 HRs out of that crew.
MOST RUNS By: Any Player
Over 122½ (-110)
Under 122½ (-110)
MOST STOLEN BASES By: Any Player
Over 63½ (-110)
Under 63½ (-110)
Again pick the over. Billy Hamilton would have easily stolen well over 70 Bags with Cincinnati if he hadn’t of been hurt. I fully expect the Reds to givehim a chance to bat all year with no worry about the Reds losing at all.
Dee Gordon thieved 58 bags in 2015 – and is capable of going over 63 himself with a full year (had 30 SB in 78 GP for 2017) that doesn’t include the PED suspension.
Jonathan Villar led the Majors in 2016 with 62 Bags, but I think he will recede a bit this season.
MOST TRIPLES By : Any Player
Over 12½ (-120)
Under 12½ (+100)
With predicting breakout years for Trea Turner and Billy Hamilton in 2017, I like the over. No one has stolen 100 Bags since Vince Coleman swiped that many 30 years ago. In his last 49 Games of 2016, Hamilton had 36 SB. Please chase 100 in your career Billy!
MOST LOSSES By: Any Pitcher
Over 17.5 (-120)
Under 17 .5(+100)
James Shields and Chris Archer both had 19 Losses, although Shields escaped this wrath with splitting the feat between the two leagues. I fully expect someone to be headed to the Mike Maroth, Jeremy Bonderman 2003 status
MOST STRIKEOUTS By: Any Pitcher
Over 276½ (-110)
Under 276½ (-110)
Max Scherzer crossed this mark last year with 284, and I think he may challenge 300 in the next year or 2. Clayton kershaw should not try to challenge this mark, as his best bullets should be held off for the Playoffs.
Still pick the over. Chris Sale is going to fan a ton of Orioles, Rays, Yankees and Blue Jays in 2017 with 76 Games against those windmill clubs.
MOST RBI’s By: Any Player
Over 127½ (-110)
Under 127½ (-110)
Over. Over. Over. Nolan Arenado should reel in 130+ RBI with that lineup, and Kris Bryant may put one of those 40 HRs and 135 RBI seasons. I am not sure the American League has a guy to pull it off. Edwin Encarnacion has 127 RBI to lead the AL in 2016.
MOST HITS By: Any Player
Over 213½ (-120)
Under 213½ (+100)
MOST DOUBLES y: Any Player
Over 50½ (-120)
Under 50½ (+100)
David Ortiz led the Majors last year – which is super shocking. With speed demons like Trea Turner, Carlos Correa, Mike Trout or Jose Altuve hanging around. I believe one of those guys will best the mark. Pick the over.
MOST WINS By: Any Pitcher
Over 21.5 (+120)
Under 21.5 (-140)
If given just one player to choose, it would be Scherzer without a great Closer in Washington yet.
MOST SAVES By: Any Pitcher
Over 49½ (-110)
Under 49½ (-110)
Actually this is a perfect total. I have Aroldis Chapman leading the Majors with 51 Saves on the campaign. The total is too close to wager on.
MOST COMPLETE GAMES By: Any Pitcher
Over 5.5 (-110)
Under 5.5 (-110)
Triple Plays In The Season
Over 1.5 (-140)
Under 1.5 (+120)
There are definitely enough boneheaded baserunners for this to happen. Having said that, I will pick the Under here. The feat is rare.
No Hitters for the Year (Includes Perfect Games)
Over 3.5 (-140)
Under 3.5 (+120)
A paltry number of one was dealt last season (Jake Arrieta) despite plenty of guys taking bids late into games. I am going to take the under again, and hope I am wrong, so we can update our list at the MLB Reports several times.
Will There Be a Pitcher with 17 Strikeouts In A Game?
Last Season, Max Scherzer K’d 20 guys to tie the record, and even Danny Duffy got into the act to whiff 17. Look for this to happen again. Instead of saying whom, let’s go with favorite teams to do it against.
- Houston Astros
- Milwaukee Brewers
- Atlanta Braves
- SD Padres
- Baltimore Orioles
- Tampa Bay Rays
# Of Cycles For The Year
Over 2.5 (-110)
Under 2.5 (-110)
Count me in for Mike Trout, Trea Turner, Xander Bogaerts, Paul Goldschmidt, Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy, Corey Seager, Carlos Correa and lets go rogue with a guy that is speedy, with a little bit of pop like Starling Marte or Jonathan Villar.
Will There Be A Batter With 6 Base Hits in A Game?
Yes. With the thought process that one of the 2 selections of a 4 HR Game or this category, I like it to happen. Favorites to accomplish the feat: Trea Turner, Jose Altuve, Mookie Betts or even a Rougned Odor.
It will take a gut that likes to “Swing it like Hellen Keller at a Pinata (or however you spell it) Party” – Billy Bob Thronton in the remake of the Bad News Bears.
Will There Be A Batter With 4 HRs In A Game?
Again.. The last 4 HR game was by Josh Hamilton in 2012 for the Rangers. There were many times with players having 3 HRs games.
Will There be A Perfect Game Thrown This Year?
Odds Subject To Change.
