With the 2020 MLB season limited to just 60 games, bettors have tough choices to make. When it comes to MLB prop bets, it’s anybody’s guess who will get hot in this year’s all-out sprint of a season. FanDuel’s prop bets are out and they are listing most home runs, hits, runs, saves, and strikeouts. It’s an opportunity for betters to take advantage of this year’s wacky season.

 

Most Home Runs

Pete Alonso +1000
Joey Gallo +1100
Mike Trout +1100
Giancarlo Stanton +1400
Cody Bellinger +1700
Yordan Alvarez +1700
Nolan Arenado +1800
Bryce Harper +2100
Christian Yelich +2100
Ronald Acuna Jr. +2100

Every guy on this list has enough power to take the home run crown. New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso is currently the slight favorite after mashing a rookie-record 53 home runs and winning the Home Run Derby.

Most Hits

Nolan Arenado +1200
Whit Merrifield +1200
DJ LeMahieu +1300
Jose Altuve +1400
Francisco Lindor +1500
Rafael Devers +1500
Ketel Marte +1800
Tim Anderson +2000
Freddie Freeman +2200
Ozzie Albies +2200

Take your pick. Nolan Arenado is a strong choice given the thin air in Colorado and the hitter’s paradise that is Coors Field. However, Whit Merrifield and DJ LeMahieu are pure contact hitters who will get a ton of at-bats this year. Merrifield has led the American League in hits for two straight seasons and LeMahieu was right behind him in 2019.

 

Most Runs

Mookie Betts +700
Mike Trout +850
Francisco Lindor +1100
Ronald Acuna Jr. +1100
Juan Soto +1200
Alex Bregman +1300
Christian Yelich +1500
Nolan Arenado +1600
Bryce Harper +1800
Charlie Blackmon +1800
Cody Bellinger +1800
George Springer +1800

Mookie Betts and Mike Trout are safe bets in almost any MLB prop bet, but none more so than most runs. Betts led the A.L. in runs the last two seasons and Trout has done so four different times in his career. Betts and Trout are on-base machines that give their teammates tons of opportunities for RBIs.

Furthermore, Betts will have the protection of guys like Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy behind him while Anthony Rendon will likely bat behind Trout. It’s impossible to ignore those two guys at the top.

 

 

Most Saves

Aroldis Chapman +650
Robert Osuna +650
Kenley Jansen +750
Alex Colome +1000
Brad Hand +1000
Josh Hader +1000
Kirby Yates +1000
Liam Hendriks +1000
Taylor Rogers +1000

Saves might be the toughest prop to bet here. On one hand, guys like Aroldis Chapman, Robert Osuna, and Kenley Jansen are on winning squads and should have their fair share of save opportunities.

On the other hand, if any of these teams jump out to a lead in the standings, they may be more hesitant to overwork their closer. If a team like the Milwaukee Brewers is scratching and clawing for a postseason berth, Josh Hader could see a ton of work.

 

Most Strikeouts

Gerrit Cole +210
Max Scherzer +550
Jacob deGrom +700
Justin Verlander +850
Shane Bieber +1200
Jack Flaherty +1600
Luis Castillo +1600
Stephen Strasburg +1600
Trevor Bauer +1600
Walker Buehler +1600

Gerrit Cole is the heavy favorite here for a reason. The newest New York Yankee is a fireballer who strikes out batters at will. In 2019, he led MLB in strikeouts and strikeouts per nine innings, edging out his then-Astros teammate Justin Verlander. Cole’s dominant stuff should play up as hitters adjust to the altered regular season.
