Our Best MLB, NBA and NHL Prop Today - Friday, May 3

If you've been following us on Twitter/X, you've seen that we recently began rolling out our favorite prop of the day for NBA, NHL and MLB. We've had strong success since started, hitting a full sweep with a parlay cash and four-straight NHL goalscorer props, including a +500 winner.

To give a little extra advantage to our users who come to the site each day, we'll be incorporating our three picks into this daily feature, as long as we have the data to support one bet from each game.

While we have hundreds of bets available each and every day across the major sports, these will be three picks that our excellent content team have identified as the "Props of the Day."

Best MLB Prop of the Day

Brady Singer (KC) Over 4.5 Strikeouts vs. TEX (+120 BetMGM)

The Royals starter to go over his strikeouts line was the highest prop edge available on site this morning, clocking in at a significant 17.6% edge. That's calculated by measuring our 63.1% probability against his +120 odds on BetMGM, which imply a 45.5% chance.

Singer has gone over in 4 of 6 starts this season and opposing starters have gone over this number in 7 of the last 10 games for the Rangers, despite them having the 8th-fewest strikeouts as a lineup this season. singer doesn't have elite strikeout material, but is in the 62nd percentile for K%.

Best NBA Prop of the Day

Luka Doncic (DAL) Over 3.5 Three-Pointers Made vs. LAC (-120 DraftKings)

Luka has come through for us several times this past week and we're looking at him to do it again, this time with the three-ball. Prior to his last three games, Doncic cleared this mark in ten straight contests, including the first two games of this series.

He's been stymied by accuracy the past three games, as well as shooting 8 and 9 attempts in his past two, after chucking up at least 12 shots from behind the arc in the first three games of this series.

Tonight, he gets a projection of 5.7 threes made with a substantial 69.7% probability to go over. At a 15.1% edge, this is a top value on the board according to our model.

The Mavs will want to close this series out so we're hoping to see some Luka daggers tonight.

Best NHL Prop of the Day

Jason Zucker (NSH) Anytime Goal (+380 FD)

We've been using three main criteria to pick our daily anytime goalscorers - high probability, an edge and shot volume. Tonight, we have a guy who fits all three.

Jason Zucker is our fourth-most likely goalscorer in this game and the second highest on the Predators. His 25.8% probability suggests he should be +280, giving us a 5% edge against the books' odds.

Zucker has 13 shots on goal through this series, tied for the second-most between both Nashville and Vancouver's squads, and is one behind the leader Filip Forsberg. With strong volume, we just need one to find a gap.
