Please note that Vegas lines and our game projections may change throughout the day after this article is published.
Khris Davis OVER 2.5 Runs, Hits, and RBI (+120)
Davis owns a .355 wOBA and a .277 isolated power against right-handers this season, and Bartolo Colon could present a soft target for Davis to hit one out of the park. Our models are projecting him for a combined 3.17 runs, hits, and RBI. Davis is also tops all hitters in home run odds, according to our Wednesday projections.
Jose Abreu OVER 2.5 Runs, Hits, and RBI (+140)
Jose Abreu is hitting 7-for-21 (.333) this month, and he is fresh off swatting his first home run in June. The Chicago White Sox are up against right-hander Jake Odorizzi on Wednesday, and our models think Abreu could have another big night.
Abreu is averaging a run, hit, or RBI every 1.89 plate appearances against right-handers this season, and with right-handers owning a .304 BABIP against Odorizzi this year, our models are projecting Abreu for 3.15 runs, hits, and RBI in this matchup.
Justin Bour OVER 2 Runs, Hits, and RBI (+110)
Bour has been excellent against right-handed pitching this season with a .358 wOBA and .258 isolated power. Our models really like the first baseman's chances of hitting a home run, and we're projecting him for a combined 2.51 runs, hits, and RBI against Flaherty.
