Mikey to basecamp...Mikey to basecamp...We are officially ice cold after getting the dreaded 0-3 golden sombrero on Monday night. We're on a 4-day losing streak and obviously it's been painful.

Our strikeout props on Paul Skenes and Cristopher Sanchez lost by the hook and the Braves offense forgot how to hit again. OUCH! During losing streaks, it's important to keep a longterm perspective.

For example, even with the rough 4 days, we're still sitting at 124-95 on the season. If you've stayed the course and played each play, you're up a tidy +20.26 units of profit. Let's get right on Tuesday night, folks!

Triston McKenzie Over 5.5 Ks (-109)

SEA at CLE - 6:40 EST

T-Mac let us down last week, but this is a good get-right opportunity for him against a very poor Seattle lineup. The Mariners strike out more than any other MLB team, no matter who happens to be on the mound against them. They have 8 (yes EIGHT) players with K-rates over 26%!

McKenzie doesn't throw all that hard, but his breaking stuff is world-class when he's in a good groove. He's held these Seattle hitters to an expected batting average of just .222 in his career.

Sure, McKenzie's median K number this season is just 5. However, I made a 30% adjustment to my number just because this M's lineup is so strikeout prone. Let's start the night off with an Over!

Nick Lodolo Over 6.5 Ks (+100)

CIN at PIT - 6:40 EST

This may be my favorite play of the night! Lodolo has owned this Pirates lineup in his young career. His K-rate against Pittsburgh is a whopping 34.3%, which is insanely impressive.

Lodolo shouldn't have much trouble with this light-hitting Pirates lineup tonight. The 26-year-old lefty has been the ace of the Reds staff this season, as he's 7-2 with a nice ERA of only 2.93!

Lodolo has good life on his fastball, but his changeup gets even more swings and misses. Pittsburgh often struggles to put the ball in play against lefties, so let's ride another Over to the pay window!

Aaron Nola Under 4.5 Ks (+112)

SD at PHI - 6:40 EST

Something is just a little off with Nola this season. Sure, he's 8-3 with a good ERA, but his K-rate has gone down significantly. Nola has only struck out 22.2% of the batters he's faced, which only ranks in the 49th percentile.

The veteran righty still has a wicked curveball but his fastball doesn't have the same zip that it did last year. Nola also gets a tough matchup, at least K-wise, against San Diego.

The Padres let us down last night by striking out 5 times against Cristopher Sanchez. I'm betting that hitters like Arraez, Machado, and Profar do a much better job of putting the ball in play tonight. Let's enjoy a plus money Under!

Austin Gomber Under 3.5 Ks (+108)

LAD at COL - 8:40 EST

Last cap off the Tuesday card with another plus money Under, this one at Coors Field in Colorado. Gomber is the epitome of a pitch-to-contact type of starter. His K-rate is only 16.7% this season, which ranks in just the 13the percentile.

The 30-year old southpaw gets good extension, but his fastball only tops out at around 90 mph. That could spell trouble against his LA lineup. The Dodgers have done quite well this season against lefties.

Five of the Dodger hitters have strikeout rates below 20.4%. Gomber's K-rate against these hitters is just 14.1% in his career. Give me a late night Under to wrap things up!
