MLB Jock MKT Pick ‘Em – April 19th – Los Angeles Angels at New York Yankees

Griffin Canning  Over 4.5 Hits allowed

If you’re looking for a daily player prop bet that’s sure to pay out, look no further than Griffin Canning allowing more than 4 hits tonight against the Yankees. While Canning is a talented young pitcher, it’s worth noting that he spent an entire year out from a back injury. The injury prone 26 year old still is not in the normal 5-man rotation after starting this season on the IL with a hamstring injury. 

Canning made his 2023 debut last Wednesday against Washington, allowing two runs on five hits and striking out four batters over five innings. However, it’s important to remember that he’s still getting back into the swing of things after his time off. Going up against the mighty Yankee lineup in the hitter-friendly confines of Yankee Stadium is a tall order for any pitcher, let alone one who’s still working his way back to full strength.

The Yankees are a team that thrives playing in the Bronx, and their lineup is stacked with hitters who can take advantage of the short porch and the hitter-friendly ballpark.

So if you’re thinking about placing a bet on this game, take the over on Canning allowing more than 4 hits. The odds are in your favor, and with the Yankees’ bats heating up, it’s looking like an easy win.

DJ LeMahieu Over 3 Earned Runs

Looking at tonight’s game between the Yankees and the Angels, it’s hard to ignore the offensive firepower that DJ LeMahieu brings to the plate. Since returning to the lineup last Saturday, LeMahieu has been on an absolute tear, morphing into an offensive juggernaut.

So far this season, LeMahieu has been hitting .283/.353/.543 with two home runs, six RBIs, and 10 runs scored. He’s been particularly hot lately, collecting five hits over his last three games in just 12 at-bats with a home run and three RBIs.

Against the Angels tonight, LeMahieu will be facing off against Griffin Canning, a young pitcher who has shown promise in the past but is still working his way back from a back injury that kept him out for an entire year. While Canning did have a decent outing in his 2023 debut last Wednesday against the Nationals, it’s important to note that he is not even a regular starter in the Angels’ rotation. With Giancarlo Stanton on the injured list, LeMahieu has been stepping up in a big way, and he’s shown that he can handle the pressure of being a key offensive contributor for the Yankees.

Hammer the overon LeMahieu’s hit total.

Shoehi Ohtani Over 1 Hit

Perhaps the easiest pick of the day is the over for hits for Shohei Ohtani against the Yankees. The line is set at 1, which seems low given his hot start this April. In the 10 games he has played this month, Ohtani has recorded at least one hit in nine of them. And let’s not forget about his impressive performance last night against the Yankees, where he went 1/3 with a home run, two RBIs, and a stolen base.

Tonight, he will be facing the young Yankee pitcher Johnny Brito, who has only made two starts in his MLB career and currently has a 6.75 ERA. This could be the perfect opportunity for Ohtani to continue his hitting streak and rack up a few more hits. 

The Angels’ two-way star has been on fire at the plate this season, hitting .317 with four home runs, 12 RBIs, and a stolen base. With his power and speed, he is a constant threat to get on base and do some damage against opposing pitchers. Ohtani’s hot streak combined with Brito’s lack of experience on the mound makes the over on hits for Ohtani easy money tonight.
