- An MLB Daily Special bet of Byron Buxton, Jose Abreu, Matt Olson, Ronald Acuna Jr., and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to combine for 5+ RBIs has +200 odds on Bovada.
- This prop’s value at +200 comes from each player’s favorable matchup.
ATLANTA – The best Bovada MLB Daily Special bet for May 22 requires Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Matt Olson, Ronald Acuna Jr., Jose Abreu, and Byron Buxton to record five or more combined RBIs.
Ronald Acuna Jr. has 16 hits across his 11-game hitting streak, making him a valuable piece of this MLB daily special prop. With Acuna being the lead-off hitter for the Atlanta Braves, he is less likely to record an RBI unless he hits a home run.
However, his presence on the bases allows Matt Olson to have more RBI chances, giving value to his +130 odds on legal MLB betting sites to record an RBI for a fourth straight game. After Ronald Acuna Jr. gets on base in the first inning, Matt Olson hit a double or home run to score him in each of Atlanta’s last three games.
The duo faces Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Gavin Stone, who will make his second career MLB start. Stone allowed four earned runs in four innings pitched last outing, bringing value for Olson and Acuna’s RBI chances.
RBI Opportunities Outside of Atlanta for Bovada Special
Byron Buxton is slugging .220-points higher against right-handed pitching despite recording over 80 more plate appearances facing righties than lefties. 19 of his 21 RBIs on the season come against righties, and Buxton is the most likely player to record an RBI in the contest with +135 odds.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has struggled in his last three games (1-13, 6 strikeouts), but gets a favorable matchup against Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Trevor Kelley. Guerrero has two hits in three at-bats against Kelley and is slugging 1.000 against him.
Jose Abreu of the Houston Astros also gets a great matchup with Corbin Burnes. Despite Burnes being one of the league’s best pitchers, Abreu has a home run and a 1.250 career slugging percentage in their five at-bats head-to-head.
Abreu has +165 odds at legal online betting sites to record an RBI on Monday night, the shortest odds of any batter from either team. Oddsmakers are expecting Abreu to continue his success against Burnes despite a small sample size.
Considering each player’s matchup, the +200 odds for this Bovada MLB Daily Special are valuable. The first game starts at 6:40 p.m. ET.
