MLB PrizePicks – Hendricks, Fried, and Tucker

Kyle Hendrick Under 3.5 Strikeouts

Kyle Hendricks has a tall order today, as he faces Max Fried and the Atlanta Braves. Hendricks is having a solid season, a 3.49 ERA over 13 starts. However, he’s bound to find himself in trouble early against this high-power Atlanta offense. Hendricks is not one to sit down many batters on strikes, and Atlanta hasn’t been sitting down too much. While Hendricks typically struggles to hit 4+ Ks in a game, he likely won’t see the innings necessary to take care of that many Atlanta batters.

Max Fried Over 5 Strikeouts

PrizePicks has given us a real treat, with Max Fried making his first start returning from injury. He will likely be on a short leash today, but he faces a Chicago team that ranks in the top ten for strikeouts. So Fried will only need to pitch four innings to hit this number. That prop will skyrocket within the next couple of weeks, so grab it now.

Kyle Tucker Over 1.5 Total Bases

Kyle Tucker is one of the most consistent hitters in baseball, and he enters play today on a five-game hit streak. While he’ll want to keep that alive today, he has the added incentive that a strong day at the plate would bring his batting average up over .300.

He’s enjoying his time in Yankee Stadium, as he has taken full advantage of the short porch in left field, don’t be surprised to see him put one over there tonight to keep the streak alive and cash this bet.

Bonus Play: Robbie Grossman Under 0.5 Total Bases

It’s hard watching the Rangers continue to play Robbie Grossman. He’ll enter play today with a .224 batting average and seven home runs. He had just nine hits over the last month, and fadin him night in and night out continues to remain profitable.
