MLB Props from Las Vegas
The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has just released their 2020 MLB season-long props for the upcoming 60-game sprint. Prop offerings include: Over/under 20 home runs by any player; Over/under 106.5 strikeouts by any pitchers; and over/under 41.5 wins by any team. Keep in mind as you look at some of the hitting props: The National League will also be playing with a designated hitter this year. That will allow teams like the Cubs, who have some great hitters that are limited on defense, to see some more at-bats without being a liability in the field.

Upon first glance, under 4.5 triples seems like a pretty good look. Triples have been on a steady decline for years. The American League has only had one player hit more than ten triples in a season since 2011 (Eddie Rosario in 2015). The National League West dominates the triples scene because of Coors Field, Chase Field, and Oracle Park. Players from the NL West have won the National League triples crown in each of the last six years. But the shortened schedule will take away a lot of those opportunities. I would be surprised to see a player reach 5+ triples this season.
