This is a great matchup for the MVP candidate who's coming off of two multi-hit games. Look for the first baseman, who typically bats third, to have a solid day at the plate.

MLB Player Prop #2: Shane McClanahan Under 8.5 Strikeouts (-138)

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Kansas City Royals Match Details

Fixture: Kansas City Royals @ Tampa Bay Rays

Date & Time: Friday, August 19, 7:10 p.m. EDT

Venue: Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida

Shane McClanahan is one of the Cy Young favorites in the American League this year, although recently, he's dipped a bit. Still, his 2.28 ERA and 0.87 WHIP are amazing stats to be carrying in mid-August.

Tonight he'll be facing a contact-heavy Royals team that doesn't strike out very often. Kansas City's lineup isn't great, but they will put the ball in play. Also, McClanahan's last six starts have all been under 9 Ks. Look for the lefty to stay under the strikeout prop for tonight's game as well.

MLB Player Prop #3: Triston McKenzie Over 18.5 Outs Recorded (+130)

Cleveland Guardians vs. Chicago White Sox Match Details

Fixture: Chicago White Sox @ Cleveland Guardians

Date & Time: Friday, August 19, 7:10 p.m. EDT

Venue: Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio

Triston McKenzie gets the ball against the Chicago White Sox, the Guardian's division rivals. McKenzie has recorded 20 or more outs in three of his last four starts entering Friday's game.

The White Sox put the ball in play much more than league average, ranking in the bottom 10 in strikeout rate. Look for McKenzie to be efficient and work into the seventh tonight.
