Mets vs Angels Sunday Night Baseball Props
With Shohei Ohtani out of the lineup tonight, we're turning to Jared Walsh, fresh off his cycle night,
to punish Mets starter Taijuan Walker in our favorite Sunday Night Baseball player prop picks. It'll be a hit parade for the Angels once more.
The Los Angeles Angels have won two of their previous four games, putting an end to their 14-game losing streak coming into Sunday Night Baseball versus the New York Mets.
Last night's 11-6 win over the Mets included 15 hits, and the Halos will face a starting tonight that is prone to allowing a lot of base hits.
As a result, we're focusing on Taijuan Walker's hits allowed prop, while also expecting Jared Walsh to be one of the big hitters.
In our favourite player prop picks for Sunday Night Baseball on June 12, we don't like Angels starter Patrick Sandoval's chances of avoiding the dreaded base on balls with consistency.
Mets starter Taijuan Walker has generally gotten solid results this season, owning a 3.28 ERA over his nine starts.
Dependable though he is, his peripherals don't exactly inspire confidence.
Walker's lack of, er, walks is excellent, but that also means he's in and around the strike zone with regularity and when opponents swing, they don't miss.
He hasn't thrown enough innings to rank as a qualified starter, but only two hurlers with at least 40 innings under their belts this season have a lower strikeout rate than Walker's 12.9%.
In that same cohort, Walker has a hard-hit rate of 42.9% and ranks in the Bottom 25% of pitchers in terms of average exit velocity.
