Today, one interleague matchup catches my attention as the Cubs head to Toronto against the Blue Jays and the Brewers take on the White Sox in a game started by Javier Assad and Jose Berrios. There may be fireworks with a powerful attacker. In this regard, I will support Cody Bellinger.
Michael Kopech will be starting for the White Sox and he may have trouble finding a collision zone against the stoic Brewers.
One of the biggest acquisitions as the trade deadline approaches is once again the Astros acquiring Justin Verlander. The angel has moved many times. But has struggled hard since then. Will Verlander be able to take advantage?

MLB Player Props for Friday, August 11
In the final game of the Cubs series against the Mets, Cody Bellinger streaked a futile 10-game hitting streak. However, Bellinger has hit 13 of his last 15 games. In August, Bellinger hit .441 home run. Two runs and 10 hits, he increased his batting average to .327 in the process.
With his hot start to the month, Bellinger has had an RBI in seven of his last nine games. The Cubs are 6-3 this month and average seven runs per game.
Tonight Bellinger faces Jose Berrios, who is strong this season with a 3.38 ERA. Bellinger has a single and walks him in at two plates.
Bellinger is likely to hit third or fourth on the Cubs. If any of his teammates base and table, Bellinger will be in a position to push him in.
Pick: Bellinger over 0.5 RBI (+100)
When it comes to walking props, I tend to like 1.5 in line with the expectation that the pitcher will have five or six innings in double outs. Then there’s pitchers like Michael Kopech, whose line isn’t that important.
According to Statcast, Kopech ranks third in walk rate. He put out 67 walks in just 107 2/3 innings, which came after he had 57 walks in 119 1/3 innings last year.
Kopech has lost the ball three times in seven of his last eight starts. In the sixth of that beginning He walked four or more. His last two starts were against Cleveland’s lineup, which ranked 24th in walk-per-right-hander ratio. However, Kopech still had nine walks in 10 1/3 innings against them.
Tonight, he faces the Brewers lineup, who rank fifth in walks per right-handed pitcher. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 55 walks and a draw in five of his last seven games. will hit the ball in front And if he could walk in the first innings, it would make Kopech uncomfortable at first.
If Kopech fights his order early It won’t take long for him to walk three o’clock. He’s averaging more than five innings per start if Kopech pitches at least five innings tonight. It would be a surprise if he didn’t walk at least three times.
Pick: Michael Kopech over 2.5 rounds (-140)
Tonight Justin Verlander Will make his first start in Houston since being traded. In his first start with the club He lost to the Yankees. He was defeated by Nestor Cortes Jr., who hit eight of the four innings in the Yankees’ return to the rotation.
Verlander wasn’t too shabby, however, as he allowed seven hits and two earned in seven innings.
Seven chances are important here. Because he must have rolled at least five times to qualify for a win. That shouldn’t be a problem, as he has thrown five innings in 16 of 17 appearances this season.
The only exception occurred in Atlanta in June. And that start was the last time Verlander had allowed four or more runs other than Houston. This is a team that he no longer has to worry about as an opponent this season.
Verlander is 4-2 with a 1.82 ERA in his last seven starts. If he’s pitched five innings, I’d expect the Astros to be ahead since Reid Detmers started for the Angels.
Detmers has an ERA of 8.60 in his last five starts, allowing two seven runs in that span. He also allowed eight runs in 11 innings in two starts against the Astros this season. One of those games was the Angels’ wild 13-12 comeback victory after the All-Star break.
When Verlander is against him tonight I didn’t expect the angel to explode in displeasure. Especially if he kept Shohei. Otani on the field That should help Verlander win tonight.
Pick: Justin Verlander Saves Victory (+135)
