Alek Manoah (TOR) Under 6.5 Total Strikeouts
Alek Manoah and the Toronto Blue Jays will be facing the Seattle Mariners. Manoah has a 2.24 ERA and 22.9% strikeout rate. Manoah has been averaging 0.9 strikeouts per inning, which would require him to go nearly 8.0 innings which seems very unlikely, especially in a wildcard game. The Mariners have a 22.8% strikeout rate and 10.6% swinging strike rate as well as a 16.0 ISO.
Luis Castillo (SEA) Under 5.5 Total Strikeouts
Luis Castillo and the Seattle Mariners will be facing the Toronto Blue Jays. Castillo has a 2.99 ERA and 27.2% strikeout rate. Not only do I not think he’ll go super deep into the game, I think this matchup will be tough to find strikeouts. The Blue Jays have a 20.2% strikeout rate and 10.6% swinging strike rate as well as a 16.8 ISO.
Max Scherzer (NYM) Over 5.5 Total Strikeouts
Max Scherzer and the New York Mets will be facing the San Diego Padres. Max Scherzer has a 2.29 ERA and 30.6% strikeout rate.
