MLB Player Props: Brandon Drury, Owen Miller, Elvis Andrus

Four of Major League Baseball's top pitchers in home runs allowed take the hill on Friday night.

Nathan Eovaldi, Josiah Gray, Elieser Hernandez and Bruce Zimmerman combined to give up 56 home runs over the first two months of the season.

Gray, Hernandez and Zimmerman have been average throughout the season, while Eovaldi has been a strikeout machine in certain starts.

Three of the four pitchers on that list have matchups worth taking advantage of not just for home run props, but for total bases as well because of how often they have been hit this season.

MLB Player Props

Overall Record: 21-30

Brandon Drury Over 1.5 Total Bases (+115)

Brandon Drury has two or more total bases in four of his last seven games.

Drury and his Cincinnati Reds teammates go up against Washington's Josiah Gray, who gave up 26 hits, 20 earned runs and 10 home runs in May.

Drury reached base safely through a hit in seven of his last eight home games and he started June off with two hits inside Fenway Park on Wednesday.

The Reds and Nationals could have a field day inside Great American Ball Park, which is second to Coors Field in home runs per game with 1.562. It is also third in doubles per game at 1.258. Detroit and Colorado are the only ball parks with more doubles per game.

Owen Miller Over 1.5 Total Bases (+105)

Owen Miller has the second most hits against left-handed pitchers on the Cleveland Guardians roster.

Miller has 10 hits and two doubles against left-handed pitching and he is better suited to pick up two total bases than Myles Straw, who leads the team in those categories.

Straw is the prototypical leadoff man that draws walks and steals bases. He may not be best for total bases props.

Miller had two total bases in two of his last four games and his bat contains more power than Straw, which is a good asset to have against Zimmerman and his high home run concession.

Elvis Andrus Over 0.5 Total Bases (-155)

The total bases props across Oakland's roster are low because of the matchup against Nathan Eovaldi.

Eovaldi has 17 strikeouts in his last two starts and he went the distance in his last appearance, but he allowed 31 hits in May.

Oakland's large ballpark is better to attack from a total bases perspective because long drives into the gaps could result in doubles or triples instead of home runs.

Elvis Andrus leads the Athletics with nine doubles inside the Oakland Coliseum. He had four total bases in each of his last two games at home against the Houston Astros.

Andrus' hot bat at home combined with Eovaldi's propensity to give up hits and homers could be the perfect mix for this low total bases prop.
