Best MLB player prop for Sunday's slate: Phillies bomb Walker
I search high and low everyday for a MLB player prop we can all be proud of, but I couldn’t find even 1 strikeout prop. DraftKings is all over the place with -130s and higher prices. No thanks. I’m not complaining because it was only when I couldn’t find a K-move that I stumbled onto what could be the greatest bet of our lifetimes. They actually have a home runs allowed market. What a world. Now if you read about my Mets-Phillies same game parlay today, then you know exactly who we are looking at: none other than our boy, Taijuan Walker. This is an unreal MLB player prop.
On top of this article, you should definitely check out our experts’ picks on all of the MLB action today. It’s just a smart thing to do. Also, bets can be added to the card, so why not follow me on Twitter in case we get some last-second action?

We don’t have a ton of places we can play this MLB player prop, so I apologize for that. DraftKings appears to be the only show in town for this market at the moment. Hopefully someday soon we will see FanDuel and BetMGM enter this arena, but it won’t be today.
All Walker has to do is give up a dinger for us to get paid. That’s crazy. Over his last three games, he has given up at least 2 dongs on each occasions. We’re talking 7 moonshots in only 14.2 innings of work, people. By my math he would have to go about 2.0 innings before we see one today. That seems doable.
Obviously the opponent plays a role, and we’re getting a good one today. We need a team that can drop bombs; we have one in Philadelphia. Over the last week, only 1 team in MLB has put more balls on the other side of the fence than the Phillies. Again, we don’t need to see a ton of fireworks today. If Walker hangs just one meatball like he has done 7 times in the last 14.2 innings, we get home on this number. Does this seem like a fun play to you? It does to me!
This is my favorite MLB player prop of the entire Sunday slate.
