The Rangers haven't been able to hit the southpaw well at all this year, and they rank eighth in strikeout rate in the MLB. Look for Valdez to notch seven or more in this in-state matchup.

Kris Bubic takes the mound against Cleveland tonight. On the year, the lefty is averaging 2.3 walks per start, which is one of the higher marks around.

When Bubic faced the Guardians back in April, he surrendered two walks in just two-thirds of an inning. He's given out two free passes in four of his last five starts. Expect Cleveland to draw two walks off the lefty on Tuesday.

MLB Player Prop #3: Austin Riley Over 1.5 Total Bases (-125)

Oakland Athletics vs. Atlanta Braves Match Details

Fixture: Atlanta Braves @ Oakland Athletics

Date & Time: Tuesday, September 6, 9:40 p.m. EDT

Austin Riley, the Braves third baseman, has been excellent this year, and he has a good chance to finish with 40+ homers and 100+ RBIs.

Riley will be facing A's lefty, Cole Irvin. This is an excellent matchup. Since 2021, Riley is slugging .750 against southpaws who rely heavily on the changeup. Irvin throws his changeup just under 20% of the time, well above league average, so look for Riley to take advantage.

Also, over the past two weeks, Riley has clobbered four homers, and on the year, he has a .582 SLG off of lefties.
