We have baseball all day on Wednesday so let’s roll into our MLB Best Bets and Props Bets for today! The slow grind of getting back to where we want to be continues. While we’ve added some volume to our betting, we have not changed the process regarding how we are breaking down games and analyzing the individual matchups. 




Yesterday’s MLB picks article missed out on a couple of bets due to some of the randomness we see in the game – remember, baseball is a game where a 30-percent success rate is considered Hall of Fame. So, while we went 4-4 on our bets, we did lose slightly under one unit as our plus-money was where we were victimized. 

All good. MLB props can be tough as we missed an outs prop by one out and a total bases prop by a half-base. But we were right there in the mix. The balls will start to bounce in our favor and once it does, it will be glorious! So, let’s not dwell on the past. Let’s get to today’s action with my favorite MLB predictions for today!

MLB Best Bets & Prop Bets For Today, Wednesday, April 10 

Diamondbacks vs. Rockies Prediction Today, 4/10

I just can’t quit this series, especially with two of the worst pitchers we’ve seen from either side. DBacks starter, Tommy Henry, looked better in his second start which came against the Braves, but I’m not buying that his pitch-mix is going to continue inducing a 60% ground ball rate. And definitely not in Coors Field. 

And Austin Gomber – well, he’s just not efficient and the Diamondbacks hitters are going to force him to throw strikes or they’re going to take a carousel ride around the bases a la the free passes. Gomber has walked six in 8.2 innings thus far. Arizona is posting a .367 wOBA against lefthanded pitching this season while the Rockies are posting a .329 mark. 

I’m not saying this is going to be a huge barnburner which is why I’m backing away from the over-11 on the game total. However, I’m banking on Arizona to at least walk away with the win in today’s MLB picks and for neither starter to go deep into this game.  




Rays vs. Angels Prediction Today, 4/10 

Zack Littell is one of the more underrated pitchers right now and he highlights the next contest in our MLB predictions. He’s been sharp in his first two outings, blanking the Blue Jays for six innings his first time out and then allowing just one run in five innings against the Rockies in Coors. The Angels have posted a dismal .297 wOBA against righties, they’re striking out 24.1% of the time and outside of Mike Trout, no one is hitting for power. 

On the other side, the Angels are throwing Jose Soriano who is more lined up as a reliever than he is a starter. He showed some good strikeout numbers in the minors, but that hasn’t translated to the big leagues just yet and the Rays have posted solid numbers against righties, a .319 wOBA with a .320 BABIP, so they keep the ball in play. 




Marlins vs. Yankees Prediction Today, 4/10 

We’ll round out our MLB picks today quick and dirty here as the Yankees are throwing Marcus Stroman who looks great thus far and has been inducing a heavy dose of ground ball outs. The Marlins are one of the softest-hitting teams in the game right now and Stroman can go a full six and then turn things over to the bullpen. 

On the other side, it’s the Yankees with their .359 wOBA against southpaws taking on Ryan Weathers and his middling totals. Not only do I expect a win, but by a fairly large margin as well.




Best MLB Props Today, 4/10 

**Personally, I’m throwing a full unit on Albies’ HR prop, but if you’re down and nervous about doing it, a half-unit is the way to go. I just have to include him in my MLB predictions today as I love Albies vs. a lefty, plus he’s got strong numbers against Jose Quintana.
