After a weekend break following two losses on Thursday, we’re diving back into action with an 11-game Monday slate of MLB matchups. We may have overreached a bit last week, but we’re resetting to kick off this new week.

Our focus today is on Alec Bohm of the Philadelphia Phillies and Brice Turang of the Milwaukee Brewers. We’ve identified some favorable matchups and the odds are too enticing to overlook.

Our first play revolves around Bohm’s potential to drive in a run. Over the past week, Bohm has been on fire, tied for the league lead with 8 RBIs. He’s not just producing with sacrifice flies; Bohm boasts a fifth-ranked 1.342 OPS during this timeframe.

Batting .421 over the past week with eight hits, Bohm has been particularly clutch this season, batting .429 with runners in scoring position. Facing Hunter Greene of the Cincinnati Reds, Bohm stands out as he ranks second on the team in Run Value against both four-seam fastballs and sliders. We’re banking on Bohm to deliver at least one run today.

For our second pick, we’re eyeing Turang to secure at least 0.5 stolen bases. Currently tied for the league lead with 10 stolen bases, Turang has nabbed three over the past week, despite a slight dip in batting performance. He boasts a .367 average against right-handed pitchers, with all 10 of his stolen bases coming against righties.

Taking on the Pittsburgh Pirates and rookie pitcher Jared Jones, Turang faces an opportunity against catcher Henry Davis, who has allowed all 10 stolen bases attempted against him this year. Turang’s speed is unmatched, and if he gets on base once, we expect him to capitalize on the opportunity to swipe a bag.
