Best MLB player prop for Saturday's slate: Albies gets home

Ozzie Albies MLB player prop

I’m always on the lookout for new ways to gamble. Always. It’s just a fact that if you don’t pay attention, you could miss something. And there’s no chance any of us want to miss new ways to gamble. I was at FanDuel checking to see if they had MLB player props up yet and not only did they, but they had a new market I’ve never seen before. There’s a small chance BetMGM has this market but I’m not 100%. Point is, it’s new to me so it’s new. That’s how “new” works.

If you’re on Twitter, you need to follow me right now. That’s the best advice I can give you and probably the smartest thing you will do all day. Once lineups are announced for some of this game, there is a chance for opportunity to knock. You should be there to answer it.

Ozzie Albies to record a run (+140)

People were saying I don’t give FanDuel enough shine and while I don’t agree, I still don’t want people thinking that. I love all sports books that post MLB player props. That’s why I went to FanDuel for this bet. Well, that and because I’m pretty sure they’re the only book with this market.

Here’s how my brain added this one up. In baseball, you need more runs than the other team to win a game. On top of that the ultimate goal is to win enough games to go to the World Series and win that. Well if the Braves win tonight, they get to go to the World Series. They’re going to need runs people.

Basically all we have to do is take Ozzie Albies to score a run. Why Albies? Because we don’t know who is pitching for the Dodgers yet but we do know that it doesn’t matter for Albies. He’s scored a run in every single game of this series. One game he scored 2 runs. It’s easy when you get a hit every game (Albies has in this series) and you parlay that with batting in front of Freddie Freeman. That’s how you score runs.

This feels easy and it’s my favorite MLB player prop of the night.
