Aaron Nola (PHI) Under 7.5 Total Strikeouts
Aaron Nola and the Philadelphia Phillies will be facing the Atlanta Braves. Nola has a 3.25 ERA and 29.1% strikeout rate. Nola has been averaging 1.1 strikeouts per inning, which would require him to go at least 7.3 innings which seems unlikely in this game. The Braves have a 24.6% strikeout rate and 13.0% swinging strike rate as well as a 19.0 ISO.
Nestor Cortes (NYY) Over 4.5 Total Strikeouts
Nestor Cortes and the New York Yankees will be facing the Cleveland Guardians. Nestor Cortes has a 2.44 ERA and 26.5% strikeout rate. Cortes has been averaging 1.0 strikeouts per inning, which would require him to go at least 5.0 innings. The Guardians have a 18.2% strikeout rate and 9.1% swinging strike rate as well as a 12.9 ISO. Nestor is just awesome to watch. This game was also originally scheduled for last night but was postponed due to weather, so it’s a getaway game. The Yankees will likely give him a little extra run to preserve the bullpen in the series.
Blake Snell (SD) Under 6.5 Total Strikeouts
Blake Snell and the San Diego Padres will be facing the Los Angeles Dodgers. Snell has a 3.38 ERA and 32.0% strikeout rate. The Dodgers have a 22.0% strikeout rate and 10.8% swinging strike rate as well as a 18.5 ISO. The Dodgers are looking to stay in this series so I expect them to come out looking to battle at the plate.
Mookie Betts (LAD) Over 0.5 Total Hits
Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers will be facing the San Diego Padres. Betts has a 34.0% on base percentage, 0.533 SLG, and 0.269 batting average. Betts also has a 144 wRC+. Blake Snell will be pitching for The Padres and has a 3.38 ERA, 32.0% strikeout rate, 3.21 xFIP and 0.77 HR/9.
