Best MLB player prop for Friday's slate: Garcia bombs again
We don’t have many MLB player props left in our future so we need to act fast. In terms of pitcher props, I don’t even know where our next 1 is coming from after today. That’s crazy. But instead of worrying, I say we get focused on the here and now and get down on the Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros tonight. It’s Friday night, let loose and see if we can’t take home some cash on our old friend Luis Garcia.
If you’re on Twitter, you need to follow me right now. That’s the best advice I can give you and probably the smartest thing you will do all day. Once lineups are announced for some of this game, there is a chance for opportunity to knock. You should be there to answer it.
Luis Garcia under 4.5 strikeouts (-110)
Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.
We don’t have many options on this MLB player prop people as DraftKings came to the market first on this. Neither FanDuel or BetMGM have a number yet but I am sure they will be along shortly. I can’t believe I’m looking at a -110 for under 4.5 strikeouts right now but I am so we can pull the trigger now.
I don’t like going under on anything but if you remember we did it last Saturday on this same guy. Now I like Garcia as a pitcher and this kid has a future but if we’re being honest, this kid is a walk machine right now. The worst part for him is the Red Sox know it, the Astros know it, the fans know it. It’s just not a great secret.
Garcia has only pitched twice in this postseason and neither time went well. He didn’t make it out of the third inning against the Chicago White Sox and he didn’t get out of the second against the Red Sox. In both starts, he gave up 5 earned runs and walked 3 guys. He could easily pitch a gem tonight but given the way things went in his last 2 starts, his leash is going to be short. I think it is way more likely that he doesn’t go far enough into this one to whiff 5 guys.
This is my favorite MLB player prop of the night.
