Friday MLB Strikeout Prop Bets: Krothers picks Gerrit Cole, Hyun Jin Ryu, Shohei Otani (traffic permitting)

Yankees @ Detroit, 7:10 pm ET, Blue Jays @ Indians, 7:10 pm ET, Angels @ Athletics, 9:40 pm ET.

Gonna do this rapid-fire style given the upcoming holiday weekend – already some games are being postponed due to inclement weather, but let’s hope these play out:

Yankees @ Detroit, 7:10 pm ET

Gerrit Cole for the Yankees against this Detroit lineup? Yes, please. I’m taking the over 9.5 strikeouts and -125 from Wind Creek.

Blue Jays @ Indians, 7:10 pm ET

The Blue Jays’ Hyun Jin Ryu consistently averages 6-7 K a game and a strikeout an inning. The line at Wind Creek is set at 5 so of course I’m taking the over and -125.

Angels @ Athletics, 9:40 pm ET

Some crazy bus issues forced the Angels’ Shohei Otani to move his start from yesterday to tonight. Unfortunately for me and you, the books changed the line with the date change – maybe because he’s pitching on more rest? They changed the line from 5.5 yesterday to 6.5 today. I still expect him to get 7-8, so I’ll take the over 6.5 at -108 from FanDuel.

Come back again Sunday — same bat-channel — Batman out!
