You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

We are officially living the dream. College football is off the ground. NFL begins tonight. I even heard guys rumbling about NBA and NHL futures. But here’s the thing: people are forgetting about MLB. These are the guys that were playing when nobody else was (except soccer players). We shouldn’t just dump them just because something better came along. I can’t do it. I’m just going to find an MLB player prop everyday and slam it like it’s still July. It’s the right thing to do.

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? Once lineups are announced for some of these games, there is a chance for opportunity to knock.

Antonio Senzatela over 16.5 outs (-115)

Line available at BetMGM at time of publishing.

I went BetMGM on this one because nobody else has these. Why? Your guess is as good as mine because they are pretty sweet. We get to relax a little and not freak out every time our guys don’t strike someone out. It’s a refreshing way to get down on MLB player props. You should try it.

Antonio Senzatela is a guy I don’t bet a lot because he doesn’t strike anyone out. He is consistently slapped with a 3.5 and the price is never enticing enough to get me to bite. It’s sad really. But his outs numbers are a different story. He’s gone at least 6.0 innings in 7 of his last 8 starts. That’s enough to get me to at least see who he’s pitching against tonight.

The Rockies will be in Philadelphia tonight taking on the Phillies which makes this a bet. Over the last week, Philadelphia is only hitting .230. They are scoring runs by hitting dingers, and guess what Senzatela is good at. Not giving up dingers! He’s only yielded 10 in 132.0 innings pitched this season. Keep in mind this dude pitches at Coors Field half the time. I bet he hangs around for at least 17 outs tonight.
