The MLB playoffs roll on with both the NLCS and ALCS series underway, so let’s jump into some baseball betting picks tonight for Wednesday, Oct. 20. With the help of the Awesemo expert MLB player prop betting tool, below are three of Awesemo’s best MLB bets today.
Best MLB Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks
Julio Urias Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-127)
It was a crazy game yesterday, where the Dodgers jumped out to lead only to get down three runs and make a miraculous comeback in the late innings. The analysis from yesterday applies exactly to today’s game. The Dodgers bullpen got a lot of work yesterday, and Julio Urias should have a decent leash. Atlanta has a great lineup full of speed and power. However, it also strikes out at a high clip. Urias is one of the best bets today and should be locked in with confidence at plus odds.
Chris Sale Over 3.5 Strikeouts (-149)
It is always tough to recommend the over in strikeouts against Houston, but this total seems too low, even at minus odds. Chris Sale has plus strikeout chops at 28%, and Houston has more strikeouts than usual in its lineup with Jose Siri getting the start in center field. All of the above provides a positive expected ROI on this bet according to Awesemo’s model, and that is fantastic for a short slate.
Kyle Schwarber to Hit a Home Run (+450)
Kyle Schwarber is in a prime spot to go deep tonight, and the odds reflect that. Usually odds are north of +500, but even at +450 this is a fantastic bet. Valdez is a great ground-ball pitcher, but Schwarber’s swing is perfect to take him deep. Also, there will be plenty of at bats against the bullpen, as he is hitting second tonight. Schwarber has had no trouble destroying baseballs this postseason and should add to his offensive resume tonight at Fenway.Thanks for reading to the end of this article!
