With some bad pitchers on the mound in Major League Baseball today, I’m loving quite a few MLB player props that involve some of the game’s best hitters. NL MVP Contenders Paul Goldschmidt and Austin Riley top my list today, and while those two are my favorite MLB player props, Underdog Fantasy has ample props that you can add in to increase your multiplier today. Christian Walker finds himself in a good spot, and taking the under on some props involving Triston McKenzie and Mike Minor seem to be in play today. I love using the data on our lineups page, along with our daily projections and MLB vegas odds to construct my slips for today’s action. Here are my favorite MLB player props and plays of the day over on Underdog Fantasy for Wednesday, August 31.


Underdog Fantasy MLB Player Props August 31

Paul Goldschmidt OVER 1.5 Total Bases

It feels like cheating picking Goldschmidt all the time, but the numbers don’t lie! He’s 8-for-14 with three home runs in his career against Mike Minor, and he’s hitting southpaws at a .414 clip with a 1.333 OPS and .414 ISO this season. Minor has allowed a 6.37 ERA, .554 SLG, and 2.41 HR/9 at home this season, and he has a 5.97 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over his last seven starts. On the best side of his splits, there’s no reason not to target Goldschmidt today.

Austin Riley OVER 1.5 Total Bases

Colorado’s Ryan Feltner has allowed a 6.19 ERA, .369 wOBA, and .308 batting average on the road this season, and over his last five starts, he’s served up a 6.29 ERA and a 1.85 HR/9. How do you get to Feltner? Right-handed hitters. Righties are hitting Feltner at a .291 clip with a .367 wOBA and an .859 OPS. Riley’s numbers look better against lefties, but he’s still posted an .817 OPS against right-handed pitching this season, alongside a .353 wOBA and .225 ISO. Riley has a .959 OPS at home this season, and he’s hitting .381 with a .476 SLG, and .429 wOBA over his last six games.

Other MLB Player Prop Leans:

  • Mike Minor UNDER 17.5 Pitching Outs (STL has .866 OPS vs. LHP over last 14 days, and Minor has completed 6 IP in just one of his last eight starts)
  • Christian Walker OVER 1.5 Total Bases (1.123 OPS over L15, .928 OPS vs LHP in 2022)
