Matt Olson has recorded a hit in 17 of his last 19 games and has 26 total hits in that stretch. He’s quite possibly the hottest hitter in baseball, leading the league in home runs. The Braves just stream rolled the Mets, taking three of four games, outscoring them 40-10. This team is on a roll, and now they welcome the Yankees to the A.

We should see a similar storyline in this series, so grab Braves hitters and pitchers for some easy money.

Endy Rodriguez Over 1.5 Hits+Runs+RBIs

Everybody is running over the Mets right now, and today it’s the Pirate’s turn. New York is trying to forget their series with the Braves, but Pittsburgh will bring some trouble to town.

Endy is hot and should have no problem landing a run or an RBI on a hit. This number is incredibly low, and considering how easy the Mets are to score on, this should be an easy bet.

Tyler Glasnow Over 7.5 Strikeouts

Tyler Glasnow has been an untouchable force in the second half of this season. He’s allowed ten total runs over his last seven starts, and his strikeout numbers have been even more impressive. Glasnow has retired 8+ batters on strikes in six of his last seven starts; in the one game, he failed to reach eight, he stuck out 7.

What really brings this pick home is the team he’s pitching against. The Giants rank in the top five this season for strikeouts — 9.42 a game. Glasnow should be cashing all his props tonight.

Yu Darvish Under 6 Strikeouts

Bit of a dicey move here, but bettors should stick with the trend of fading Darvish’s K prop. The under has cashed in three of his last four starts. In his previous game, he only managed four strikeouts in six innings against the Mariners, who rank 29th in Ks — only the Twins strikeout more.

Today, he faces a Baltimore squad that has been solid at avoiding Ks for most of the season, but they have been in a bit of a slump. The Orioles are averaging 9.2 Ks a game over their last five games but are averaging 8.36 over the full season. This play could turn ugly, but the under remains the smart move.
