Best MLB Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks
Max Scherzer Over 7.5 Strikeouts (-113)
Max Scherzer struggled in his start in the play in game, but he can rebound in a big way tonight. He has a 34% strikeout rate and is going to face a powerful Giants lineup that also has a lot of strikeouts to go with their home run prowess. Other than Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford, everyone in the Giants lineup carries a strikeout rate over 20%. This is a great spot to get back on the Scherzer strikeout train at almost even odds.

Freddie Peralta Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-115)
Freddie Peralta has had a fantastic season and now looks to continue his success in the playoffs. Atlanta has a great lineup full of speed and power. However, it also strikes out at a high clip. This leads to Peralta and his tremendous 34% strikeout rate. Six batters on the Braves strike out more than 20% of the time. There are not many profitable bets on such a short slate, but this one is enticing.
Mike Zunino to Hit a Home Run (+500)
Mike Zunino has one of the most interesting batting profiles in all of baseball. He is a true three-outcomes guy and has the best xSLG on the Rays, even better than the highly touted Wander Franco and Nelson Cruz. His xSLG of .523 and an excellent 23-degree launch angle are great for home runs, and he has a 24% barrel rate that is among the best in the league. This is a great spot to target a home run over the Green Monster at Fenway tonight at +500 odds.
