Best MLB prop bets today: SuperDraft player prop picks for Wednesday 8/23

*10x potential payout if users parlay all four correct picks

Freddie Freeman, 1B, Dodgers @ Guardians – OVER 6.5 fantasy points 

For Freeman’s standards, he’s amid an ice-cold stretch at the plate over the past week, recording just five hits in his past 25 at-bats with a .200/.259/.280 slash line. Although he draws a semi-challenging matchup against Guardians’ righthander Xzavion Curry, who’s held lefties to a .211 opponent batting average with a .555 OPS over 128 at-bats, Freeman’s too complete of a hitter to get held in check by a starter who sits in just the ninth percentile in hard-hit rate (45.7 percent).

Freeman remains one of the toughest outs, posting a respectable 16.8-percent K rate, so his ability to grind out at-bats and put the ball in play likely leads to the superstar first baseman totaling a couple of hits tonight. It also doesn’t hurt that winds are blowing out 10 miles per hour to dead center, potentially leading to Freeman depositing one into the outfield seats.


Aaron Judge, RF, Yankees vs. Nationals – OVER 7 fantasy points

While the Yankees’ playoff hopes are all but dead, it’s not a result of a down season from the reigning AL MVP, as Judge has done his part at the plate, leading all hitters in barrels per plate appearance. A plus matchup against Nationals’ southpaw MacKenzie Gore tonight could result in Judge recording his 25th long ball of the season.

Gore’s allowed seven home runs over his past six starts, owning a subpar 1.53 HR/9 rate this season. Gore also sits in just the fifth percentile in barrel rate in 2023 (11.9 percent), which isn’t a good sign for his chances of limiting Judge’s offensive production tonight.

Vaughn Grissom, SS, Braves vs. Mets – UNDER 0.5 singles

Grissom’s penciled in as the Braves No. 9 hitter tonight, and despite notching two hits in his last start, we think Mets’ starter Jose Quintana gets the better of Grissom in their head-to-head bouts. Grissom’s career-long chase rate of 34.5 percent is six percent above the league average, as his swing-heavy nature could come back to bite him against a steady hurler in Quintana. 

Chris Sale, SP, Red Sox @ Astros – UNDER 5.5 strikeouts

Sale makes his second start since returning from the IL, drawing a challenging matchup against an Astros’ offense posting the fourth-lowest strikeout rate this season (20.6 percent). In 84 career plate appearances against current Houston hitters, Sale’s allowed a subpar strong xSLG of .524 and a .301 opponent average.

If the Astros’ offense continues to rake against him, we could see Sale’s outing cut short, leading to the veteran lefthander failing to reach six-plus strikeouts.
