Tuesday’s slate is filled with opportunity as we dive into the best MLB props today. There are plenty of games to bet on and three players have caught my eye in the prop market. Let’s cash out together! 

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees

Tuesday, June 14, 2022 – 07:05 PM EDT at Yankee Stadium

MLB Prop Bet on Gerrit Cole

To say that Gerrit Cole had a terrible start against the Twins last Thursday would be a massive understatement. Cole was lit up, he allowed seven earned runs on eight hits (five home runs) and two walks over 2 1/3 innings to get a no-decision in a 10-7 win but he still recorded three strikeouts.

I'm not fading Cole tonight. He rarely has those kinds of games, it was by far his worst start of the season and it's a good thing that he already got it out of his system. Now he will pitch at home, looking to make up for that poor effort and he's recorded at least nine strikeouts in four of his last six starts, including 10 over six innings in his last start against the Rays on May 28.

Gerrit Cole is just 1-6 with a 4.21 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 12 career starts against the Rays, they have given him trouble before but he does have 113 strikeouts in 72 2/3 innings of work. In the last 30 days, the Rays have a .126 ISO (Isolated Power) and a .254 wOBA (Weighted On-base Average) with 25.6 percent of strikeouts and just 6.6 percent of walks.

Cole, on the other hand, has had a 3.31 xFIP (Expected Fielding Independent Pitching) with 31.1 percent of strikeouts and 4.1 percent of walks in that span.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees

MLB Prop Bet on Aaron Judge

All Rise! We will stay in the Bronx for more best bets! Aaron Judge is having an unbelievable season, leading the majors with 24 home runs and a 1.077 OPS (On-base Plus Slugging) and playing at home favors him. Judge is hitting .338 with 14 home runs and 24 RBIs in 34 games at Yankee Stadium this season.

The 2017 American League Rookie of the Year is on a mission to secure more hardware and a ring this year. Aaron Judge's 24 home runs are tied for third-most in franchise history through the first 59 games of a season, trailing only Babe Ruth (26 in 1928) and Mickey Mantle (25 in 1956). Ruth had 24 home runs through 59 games in both 1921 and 1930.

Corey Kluber is just 1-1 with a 5.09 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in five road starts, giving up four home runs over 23 innings and while Judge is just 2-for-6 (.333) with a double against him, he's hit him hard.

Aaron Judge has just two home runs in his last five games (both on Saturday against the Cubs) so you can say that he's due. I will add Judge to my MLB picks. You can't go wrong with him hitting at least one home run, it's worth a shot at this price.

Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers

MLB Prop Pick on Dylan Cease

Dylan Cease has a whopping 89 strikeouts in 63 innings this season and he is 2-1 with a 2.10 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings over five road starts. Cease struggled in his last start, giving up six runs (zero earned) on six hits with three walks over 4 2/3 innings in an 11-9 loss against the Dodgers last Thursday but he still recorded eight strikeouts.

I anticipate him to last more against the Tigers, a team that he owns. Cease is 9-0 with a 2.08 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 10 career starts against the Tigers and in his last start against them he allowed just one earned run on two hits with eight strikeouts and two walks over five innings in a 5-2 win on April 9.

The current Tigers roster is just 34-for-110 (.271) against Cease with 31 strikeouts. Jonathan Schoop has four strikeouts in 17 at-bats against him while Javier Baez has two strikeouts in just seven at-bats and he loves facing Miguel Cabrera, who is just 3-for-15 (.200) against him with six strikeouts.
