MLB player prop bets for Monday, July 4

Yordan Álvarez, over 1.5 total bases (-110)

Álvarez is coming off a productive performance against the Los Angeles Angels with a homer and a double in four appearances at the plate. The team leader in home runs and hits should be in for another efficient day as the Houston Astros face the Kansas City Royals and their 27th-ranked ERA (4.90).

Pete Alonso, over 1.5 total bases (-115)

Alonso went the distance with a homer in the New York Mets’ 4-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday and should be set to carry that momentum into the holiday matchup against the Cincinnati Reds. Cincinnati is 30th in ERA (5.50) and 27th in WHIP (1.44), setting up Alonso for a productive day at the plate.

Dane Dunning, over 3.5 strikeouts (-160)

The Baltimore Orioles’ 26th-ranked batting average (.228) sets up Dunning for a favorable situation as the Texas Rangers travel on the road for Monday’s matchup. Dunning is coming off back-to-back outings with three or more strikeouts and should make it three-straight when facing Baltimore’s struggling hitters.
