Bookies.com MLB handicapper Dan Kilbridge has scoured the top online sportsbooks around the country to find the best MLB prop bets and MLB bets for today’s games.
1. Cubs over Braves (-132, DraftKings)
The Chicago offense finally woke up with six home runs Saturday in a 13-4 win over the Braves. Now the Cubs get ace Kyle Hendricks on the mound after he missed his last start due to illness. He looked great in his most recent assignment, tossing six shutout innings against the Brewers with six strikeouts and one walk. Atlanta’s Bryse Wilson was just recalled after failing to crack the starting rotation earlier this season. He’ll make his first start of the year against a lineup including Cubs catcher Wilson Contreras – he’s been the hottest hitter in the league all week with a 1.815 OPS and four home runs in the last four games. We think Chicago gets it done again tonight to secure a series victory. Cubs moneyline is the play.

2. Manny Machado to Hit a Home Run (+400, DraftKings)
We hit on a Nolan Arenado +330 home run prop Saturday and like another long ball wager today. Dodgers starter Trevor Bauer has been lights out this season, but San Diego’s Manny Machado has his number. Machado has four home runs and 10 hits in 17 lifetime appearances against Bauer, slugging a ridiculous 1.412. He’s also seeing the ball well with three hits over the last two games, and a homer three nights ago against Pittsburgh. We like him to go yard again this afternoon at +400 at DraftKings.
