MLB player prop pick and prediction for the Baltimore Orioles vs. Milwaukee Brewers game Monday afternoon. Player prop specialist John Hyslop is here with his top MLB player prop bet with his eyes set on Brewers starter Adrian Houser.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Milwaukee Brewers Best Bet: Will Adrian Houser Mow Down the Orioles?

Monday is a tough day for all of us. We're coming off the weekend where we were most likely unstoppable and now we're forced to get back on someone else's clock. I don't know how we do it every week but hats off to us for doing it. Amazing work by us. One way to make Mondays bearable is by gambling. (They don't tell you that in school.) We don't have any NBA to pick through but dammit we've got MLB back which is good enough for me. It's going to be a great summer. What's even better about today is we've got it during the day. That's living people. All we have to do is make it until 3:05 pm ET and we've got action. Not just any action though, +140 action. This could be the greatest Monday of all time. I'm not even kidding.

Adrian Houser Over 3.5 Strikeouts (+140) (Bet $100 to Win $140)

*Odds Available at Barstool at Time of Publishing*

If you're at DraftKings or BetMGM, relax. You can get this guy at +130. If you're a FanDuel person, he's hanging at +134 over there. My point is, that Mr. Houser is playable anywhere today. I went with Barstool because I like +140 better than +130 and +134. It's just better.

Me and Adrian Houser have a little history. I took him last year a few times and I can say, he's not for everybody. The guy can sit down with six people one day and then only one the next. It's crazy really. I've even seen this cat whiff 10 guys after only getting two the game before. Want to know what he did after the 10 strikeout game? He fanned three. This guy will keep us on our toes. Geniuses one day, idiots the next. I kind of respect that about him.

One thing I will say is that four strikeouts is not a lot. Especially when you're getting +140. This is his first start of the season too so we're likely to see "Good Adrian". If his spring was any indication, we're in good shape. The guy whiffed at least four batters in two of three starts. The time he didn't he got three Mariners so he's right there. Not for nothing but all three starts came against teams that haven't stuck out more than 26 times in three games so far in the regular season.

Today, Houser will see the Baltimore Orioles who look like they're trying not to hit the ball so far. Only two teams in MLB have struck out more so far. The thing is, both of those teams have played four games while the Orioles have only played three. We're talking 37 whiffs in only 99 at bats. That's bad for a little league team. I don't think Houser will go all Roger Clemens on these guys but getting to four shouldn't be a +140 bet. That's crazy.
