Summer is for hotdogs, beer and baseball. As you settle in to watch you favorite club over the month of June keep these prop bets in mind.

Will there be a triple play?
- Yes +205
- No -285
The odds suggest there is less than a 1-in-3 chance of a team turning a triple play. There was a triple play in every month of baseball last season, except for June.
Will there be an unassisted triple play?
- Yes +1500
- No -4500
An unassisted triple play is when a defensive player makes all three outs by himself in one continuous play without help from his teammates. There have only been 15 unassisted triple plays in MLB history, fewer than the number of perfect games.
Will a pitcher throw a perfect game?
- Yes +1200
- No -2600
There have been 23 perfect games, the last pitcher to toss one was Felix Hernandez in 2012.
Will a pitcher throw a no hitter?
- Yes +115
- No -155
This is the prop most likely to happen according to the oddsmakers. You get nearly even money to bet that a pitcher (or multiple pitchers combine) for a no hitter.
Will a player hit for the cycle?
- Yes +190
- No -270
Three players, Will Myers, Trea Turner and Carlos Gomez, have already hit for the cycle (single, double, triple and home run) this year.
Will a batter have 4 or more home runs in a game?
- Yes +1400
- No -3600
Four home runs are the most dingers any player has ever hit in a single game. Josh Hamilton was the last player to smash four long balls in one game back in 2012.
