You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

We don’t know if this will be the last MLB game of the season but instead of being sad, I think we should be happy. Not that the season is over, but for the fact that the books are giving us an MLB player prop at +130. All we need Max Fried to do is go under 15.5 outs recorded. That’s it. The books don’t make mistakes like this all the time so when they do, we need to be ready. I’m ready, are you?

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.

DraftKings is the only show in town when it comes to this one and I’m sorry about that. It’s my belief that everyone should have access to bets that have a 0% chance of losing but that’s clearly not the case here. The MLB player prop market is tough at times and this is one of those times. There is a slight chance BetMGM joins the fray in this market at some point so there is hope.

I am a big Max Fried guy so you have to know how hard this is for me to write. On the other hand, it shows my dedication to you, the reader. Not all heroes wear capes people. The Braves have had paper hands when it comes to their starters so even if Max pitches well tonight, we don’t know that he will go into the sixth. Remember when they pulled Ian Anderson with a no-no after 5?

Even if the Braves don’t have paper hands with Max, will he even pitch well enough? He hasn’t made it 16 outs in a game in his last 2 starts and you could even argue that he shouldn’t have made it as far as he did in Game 2. Fried gave up 6 runs that night which won’t cut it tonight. In fact, he’s given up at least 7 hits in each of his last 3 starts. My guess is he gets pulled at the first sign of trouble tonight and that will come before the 6th inning.

This feels easy and it’s my favorite MLB player prop of the night.
