All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

MLB player prop bets for Thursday, May 19

Aaron Judge, Over 1.5 total bases (-110)

If he continues playing the way he has been, Judge has a legitimate shot at winning the AL MVP this year. He’s currently hitting .306 with 14 home runs and 30 runs batted in. In his career against Bruce Zimmerman, Judge is 4-9 with two home runs and three runs batted in. Coming off a hitless night, look for Judge to have a few hits today.

Eugenio Suarez, Over 1.5 Total Bases (+135)

This season, Suarez has been a big power guy like usual. While he leads the Mariners with seven home runs, he’s also hitting just .209. The main reason I love this play today is because of what he's done against Rich Hill in his career. In nine at-bats against Hill, Suarez has four hits including two home runs and five runs batted in. Look for Suarez to have an extra base hit tonight and there’s a decent chance he puts one out at Fenway Park.

Jordan Montgomery, Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-130)

While he’s not the biggest strikeout pitcher, Montgomery will be facing a struggling Orioles lineup today. In every start this season, Montgomery has been right around 4-5 strikeouts including the last time he faces the Orioles back in April. With a chance to finish the series with a sweep, look for Montgomery to go six innings and finish with 5+ strikeouts.
