Glenn Otto (TEX) Over 3.5 Total Strikeouts
Glenn Otto and the Texas Rangers will be facing the Baltimore Orioles. Glenn Otto has a 5.63 ERA and 17.1% strikeout rate. Otto has been averaging 0.8 strikeouts per inning, which although his efficiency has been lacking, I think it’s likely he’ll go at least 5 innings. The Orioles have a 23.9% strikeout rate and 12.3% swinging strike rate as well as a 15.5 ISO. Available at DraftKings for -130 and FanDuel for -135.
Shohei Ohtani (LAA) Under 7.5 Total Strikeouts
Shohei Ohtani and the Los Angeles Angels will be facing the Miami Marlins. Ohtani has a 2.68 ERA and 34.1% strikeout rate. The Marlins have a 23.5% strikeout rate and 11.9% swinging strike rate as well as a 15.4 ISO. Although Ohtani has exceeded this line in his last two starts, it’s a bit unsustainable to believe he’ll be able to keep the pace he’s been setting for himself. Available at FanDuel for -140 and DraftKings for -150.
Jose Berrios (TOR) Over 4.5 Total Strikeouts
Jose Berrios and the Toronto Blue Jays will be facing the Oakland Athletics. Jose Berrios has a 5.72 ERA and 18.3% strikeout rate.
