Friday MLB Strikeout Prop Bets: Krothers picks Zac Gallen, Trevor Rogers, Charlie Morton
Diamondbacks @ Mets, 7:10 pm ET, Brewers @ Marlins, 7:10 pm ET, Phillies @ Braves, 7:20 pm ET.
Side note – a few have asked me why I don’t stick with just one book – it’s because if you’re looking to make some money, you need to find the best numbers – and I’m trying to help you out! Soon, when BettorsInsider.com teams with a sportsbook, I’ll be quoting them every … single … day.
Looks like we have some good matchups in store, so let’s do this.
Diamondbacks @ Mets, 7:10 pm ET
Not sure how long the Mets fans will go before calling for Francisco Lindor’s head on a pike, but facing Zac Gallen isn’t going to make them feel any better. Gallen has prime stuff and has been averaging 6+ strikeouts a game this year, so seeing a few books putting the line at 5.5 is a bit surprising. I like taking advantage of these surprises, so I’ll take the over 5.5 at -110 from my friends at Barstool Sportsbook.
Brewers @ Marlins, 7:10 pm ET
Trevor Rogers has 44 K in 33 IP this season and shut out these same Brewers for 6 innings, striking out 7 a couple of starts ago in Milwaukee. Now he’s at home with a good home-cooked meal, which should give him another K or 2 tonight. FanDuel has the line set at 7.5 and I’ll take the over with the juicy +122.
Phillies @ Braves, 7:20 pm ET
Charlie Morton is the bet in this game. I think the Phillies have a good chance to win, but not without Morton getting 8 to 9 Ks IMHO. DraftKings has the over at 6.5 and -108 and that’s where I’m putting my hard-earned cash.
See you Sunday — Batman out!
