MLB Props: Pete Alonso, Charlie Blackmon, Mookie Betts, More

The perfect confluence of statistics appear for the best pick on Tuesday's Major League Baseball slate for total bases.

Pete Alonso owns the third-best OPS in the majors over the last seven days, he has a terrific career history against Patrick Corbin and the Washington left-hander has one of the largest hit concessions this season.

The New York Mets first baseman sits at a reasonable price of -105 for his total bases prop, so I'm more than willing to take that in what has the potential to be a high-scoring game.

There are a handful of other matchups on the Tuesday docket that need to be considered, including a Miami Marlins pitcher making his debut at Coors Field.

The Miami-Colorado matchup is intriguing from both sides since German Marquez leads the majors in hits allowed.

MLB Prop Picks

Overall Record: 16-22

Pete Alonso Over 1.5 Total Bases (-105)

Pete Alonso comes into Tuesday with the third-best OPS over the last seven days.

Alonso has a 1.255 OPS in the last five games with two home runs and five RBI.

The New York Mets slugger should extend that successful run at the dish against Patrick Corbin.

Alonso is a .344 hitter in 32 career at-bats against the southpaw. He has four home runs and seven RBI in those at-bats.

Alonso is on a four-game hitting streak and he went yard in Monday's rout of the Nationals. This feels like the right time to take advantage of a power bat in a nice run of form at the plate.

Charlie Blackmon Over 1.5 Total Bases (+135)

Spare a thought for Miami Marlins rookie Edward Cabrera.

Cabrera will make his MLB debut inside Coors Field on Tuesday night.

The Colorado Rockies scored at least five runs in nine of their last 11 home games. Colorado opened the series with Miami with seven runs.

Charlie Blackmon has a 1.047 OPS over the last seven days and two or more total bases in four of his last five games.

The +135 price for his total bases prop seems like a steal in terms of value compared to his recent form at the plate.

Garrett Cooper Over 1.5 Total Bases (+115)

If I'm going to fade Patrick Corbin, I have to fade German Marquez as well.

The two pitchers should be targets for opponents' total bases props until they prove they can limit the hitting output in multiple starts.

Garrett Cooper is an ideal target from the Marlins lineup because he has a 1.139 OPS and seven hits in the last week.

Cooper will face the league leader in opponent batting average and hits on Tuesday night. Do not be surprised if the Marlins slugger goes deep in Denver.

Mookie Betts Over 1.5 Total Bases (-110)

Mookie Betts can't stop hitting right now.

The Los Angeles Dodgers leadoff man has 20 total bases over the last five games. That run includes an 0-for-4 performance against Arizona on Sunday.

Betts got back on track with three hits and seven total bases against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.

Betts has a league-leading 1.508 OPS over the last 15 days, so it's more than worth riding his hot streak until he cools off.

Shohei Ohtani Over 1.5 Total Bases (+110)

This is mostly a narrative-based play.

Shohei Ohtani and the Los Angeles Angels are headed to Yankee Stadium this week before they drop down I-95 to play the Philadelphia Phillies.

Ohtani hit two home runs on Sunday and I would not be shocked if he takes advantage of the short porch in the Bronx not just on Tuesday, but for the duration of the series.
