John Hyslop is here with his play of the day! Check out an MLB player prop bets he’s locking in for the Minnesota Twins vs. St. Luis Cardinals on August 2, 2023.
Twins vs. Cardinals Bets:
Nolan Arenado to hit a Home Run | +430 at FanDuel
Paul Goldschmidt to hit Home Run | +500 at Wynn
We’re at two different books for the bets tonight but that’s just what you have to do in this game we play. Who can pass up a deal? Another thing that’s happening is both of these guys are showing up on the Positive EV page of OddsJam right now. That’s huge. If you don’t have access to that tool, get it now. It’s free for a month with promo code SLOP. I’m telling you right now, once you start using it, you won’t want to stop.
Obviously we’re back to attacking pitchers since we’ve got two guys from the same lineup. It worked the other night with the Rays and honestly, I think it’s the way. Tonight, we’ll go after Joe Ryan who has been giving up dingers like it’s his job. We’re talking 13 in the last 28 innings of work. I can’t put into words how bad that is. It’s awful. We’re talking 2+ in four of his last six games and at least one in all of those six outings. He’s the perfect mark for tonight.
We’re definitely going to want to with a right-handed batter since 16 of the 21 dingers Ryan has given up have been to righties. Ryan likes to throw a four-seamer and that pitch has a 74% hard hit rate against right-handers. Again, that is awful. Both Arenado and Goldschmidt do good work against four-seamers so they feel like the perfect guys to target. Goldschmidt just hit one 417 feet and another one 444 feet last week. Fourteen of Arenado’s 21 dingers on the season have been four-seamers. This all feels too right. We may be looking at the greatest night of our lives.
