Today’s PrizePicks Flex Play of the Day – Webb, Howard, and Olson

Here are my three favorite PrizePicks plays for the day.

Matt Olson Over 1.5 Total Bases

Matt Olson has sixteen hits over his last fifteen games, and eleven of those hits have been for extra bases. He has been a PrizePicks hero for us of late.

Olson’s .234 average leaves something to be desired, but he’s currently on a heater. He’s second in the majors in home runs, with eight of the aforementioned eleven hits being home runs. All this to say, as long as Olson has at least one hit tonight, he’ll clear this prop.

Rhyne Howard Under 17 Points

Rhyne Howard and the Atlanta Dream are in Washington today to take on the Mystics.

The Dream rank 7th in the WNBA despite their 5-7 record. So taking on the Mystics, they’re a (+5.5) underdog. Rhyne Howard is a large reason this Atlanta squad has had any success this season. She’s averaging 17/5/3 and is coming off a game against New York, where she put up a season-high 24 points.

So while she’s been feeling it of late, her play will take a step back taking on this Washington team. Howard scored 17+ in three of her last four but only thrice this month. She’s had some great games, but this defense will have no trouble keeping her to sixteen or less.

Logan Webb Under 5 Pitcher Strikeouts

Logan Webb is a stud, and he’s been flying under the radar this season. He enters play with a 3.16 ERA, allowing 2.3 runs per start. Webb has been a consistent piece of the Giants’ rotation for several seasons now.

He’s an effective pitcher, who works for a contract, so his K totals are always low. He’s in Toronto today, facing a Blue Jays team that ranks just outside the top five for the least strikeouts in the league. So they hit the ball well, and Webb pitches to be hit.

PrizePicks gave us the perfect number for this prop, as the worst-case scenario should be a push. There is no way Webb is sitting down six batters on strikes.
