Looking at MLB player stats from the regular season can help out for this type of bet, but things also change in the postseason.
The best players tend to step up and rise to the occasion, and looking for the best players is a key on October 7. Here is a good MLB player prop to focus on for both a position player and a starting pitcher.
The New York Mets blew a huge lead in the NL East Division, and they now have to start the playoffs much earlier than expected. New York will host the San Diego Padres to face a team that struggled in the second half.
New York is the betting favorite to win this series, and they remain a solid pick to win the World Series as well. San Diego should have been a threat to win the NL West Division this season, but they were a mess after the All-Star Break.
The Mets are the betting favorites at -140 in Game 1, but this should be a great pitching matchup. Max Scherzer starts for the Mets, and Yu Darvish will be on the mound for the Padres.
