MLB Total Hits Betting Odds: Arraez, Freeman With Highest Totals

Health Plays a Big Role in Season-Long Bets

With the start of the Major League Baseball season just around the corner, more prop bets are being offered by the sportsbooks. One of the more intriguing is always the MLB total hits betting odds. For the cost of one wager, bettors can have rooting interest all season long.

Or at least until a player goes over the total or misses any time. Odds aren’t offered on all players, as MLB injuries play a big part of the equation. A healthy Mike Trout is a definite contender to lead the league in hits, but Trout has had a tough time staying in the lineup.

The MLB standings also play a factor in deciding the bets for some players. A team battling for an MLB playoff spot will keep its regular starters in the lineup as much as possible. A team that has been eliminated or clinched a spot may rest the regulars and see what the minor leaguers can do.

There’s plenty to think about in season-long prop bets. Those who have been betting for years or those wanting to know how does sports betting work, will have to look at lineups, previous stats and previous health. We’ll look at some of the odds offered on season-long hit totals here.

Marlins logo Luis Arraez, Miami Marlins

  • 176.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Arraez had 203 hits last season despite missing 15 games, but he had just 173 in 2022. It’s unlikely that he’s going to hit .354 against next season, but if he can stay in the lineup, he has a pretty decent chance of going over the total.

Dodgers logo Freddie Freeman, Los Angeles Dodgers

  • 176.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Freeman has had more than 177 hits for three seasons in a row, and there’s no reason why he can’t do so again. The Dodgers’ lineup is formidable, so he should see some decent pitches to hit. Freeman has been healthy the last couple of seasons, so he looks like a decent bet to get there again.

Phillies logo Trea Turner, Philadelphia Phillies

  • 175.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Turner slumped a little bit last season and, as a result, finished with just 170 hits. His .266 batting average is .30 points below his lifetime mark, but he may not see the same pitches he did when he was with the Dodgers. Turner is a tough call one way or the other.

Blue Jays logo Bo Bichette, Toronto Blue Jays

  • 175.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Bichette missed a lot of time last season and still finished with 175 hits. He played in only 135 games, but hit a career-high .306. He played in 159 MLB games in both 2021 and 2022, so there’s a pretty good chance he’ll be on the diamond a little more this season.

Royals logo Bobby Witt Jr., Kansas City Royals

  • 169.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

The MLB totals hits betting odds on Witt reflect a strong season last year, during which he played in 158 games. Witt hit .276 and collected 177 hits a year ago, but he could have a tough time replicating that feat this season.

Braves logo Austin Riley, Atlanta Braves

  • 168.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Riley is another player who has stayed healthy, enabling him to record 179 hits in two of the last three seasons and 168 hits the other season. He does strike out a little too much to want to use for one of your primary MLB betting picks here, but he has a decent chance to land over the total.

Mariners logo Julio Rodriguez, Seattle Mariners

  • 168.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Rodriguez is another who strikes out a fair amount of the time but manages to collect base hits when he puts the ball in play. He’s shown pretty solid power, although he may start seeing fewer good pitches to hit.

Angels logo Vladimir Guerrero, Los Angeles Angels

  • 164.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Guerrero missed a few games last season and also saw a decline in his batting average. That’s why he only collected 159 hits for the season. It was the second straight year with a decline in batting average. That makes him a tough one to take to go over the number.

Dodgers logo Mookie Betts, Los Angeles Dodgers

  • 160.5 Hits
  • Over -115, Under -115

Betts had 179 hits last season but also played in 152 games—something he didn’t do in 2021 or 2022. He’s another MLB player whose MLB total hits betting odds will be determined by his health. If he stays in the lineup, he’s a good wager to go over the total.

Braves logo Michael Harris, Atlanta Braves

  • 154.5 Hits
  • Over -120, Under -110

Harris played 138 games last season and finished with 148 base hits. He’s a good candidate to go over the total with more playing time. Atlanta’s lineup is solid enough, so Harris should see decent pitches to hit.

Best Bet

Strictly from a value standpoint, Freeman over 176.5 hits seems like an above average wager. The Dodgers have power hitters surrounding him in the lineup, so he should get some decent pitches to hit. Freeman has hit at least .295 every season since 2016 and doesn’t look to be slowing down quite yet.
