Best MLB Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks

Walker Buehler Over 5.5 Strikeouts (+115)

Walker Buehler is going to try to save the Dodgers season in a rare NLCS day game. The Dodgers have not played poorly, but Atlanta has gotten all of the clutch hits and now leads the series 2-0. Going down three games would be a disaster to say the least, so Buehler may not be afforded as long a leash as he deserves. However, the Dodgers bullpen has struggled mightily in the first two games, and Dave Roberts may be hesitant to be as trigger happy as he usually is. Atlanta has a great lineup full of speed and power. However, it also strikes out at a high clip. Buehler is one of the best bets today and should be locked in with confidence at plus odds.

Nick Pivetta Over 3.5 Strikeouts (-113)

It is always tough to recommend the over in strikeouts against Houston, but this total just seems too low at even odds. Nick Pivetta has plus strikeout chops at 27%, and Houston should be swinging for the fences to keep up with the red-hot Boston offense taking on Houston’s worst starter in Zack Greinke. All of the above provides a 20% expected ROI on this bet according to Awesemo’s model, and that is fantastic for a short slate.

Kyle Schwarber to Hit a Home Run (+340)

Kyle Schwarber is in a prime spot to go deep tonight, and the odds reflect that. Usually odds are north of +500, but even at +340 this is a fantastic bet. Greinke is not the pitcher he once was and struggled to keep the ball in the yard all season. Although he only gave up 6.5% barrels, his xSLG given up was .426, meaning when the balls were squared up they traveled a long distance. Schwarber has had no trouble destroying baseballs this postseason and should add to his offensive resume tonight at Fenway.
