Where that run will come from is a true unknown with the limited matchups between the batters and pitchers.
However, Corey Seager seems to be the difference maker.
According to online sportsbooks, Seager is the second most favored to score a run (-130) – behind Marcus Semien at -150 odds – and is also the only player with negative odds to have an RBI.
In a game with an over-under set at 8.5 runs, and the shading toward the over, either runs will be happening from a bunch of people, or Seager will dominate the game.
For those believing in Seager, sportsbooks offer combined player props with longshot odds. Corey Seager to have 5+ total bases (from hits) and 6+ Hits + runs + RBIs comes with +775 odds.
For those believing in a high scoring affair across the board, consider underdog odds to have an RBI.
