Handicapper John Hyslop provides an early look into today's scheduled MLB starting pitchers and lineups and provides us a few names to look out for on Friday's betting slate.

Friday's Early MLB Looks: What Starting Pitchers Should Be On Today's Strikeout Watch?

The first step to getting finding that next winning 7+ strikeout +310 pitcher prop bet, is knowing who to bet against. Obviously, when we're betting K-props we're betting on the pitchers but we are also betting against the hitters. That's just how strikeouts work. Now we can mess around all day with those over 4.5 -145 bets, but I'm out of that game. I think we should all be hunting the big game and nothing less. I'm talking 6+ strikeouts for +250 as minimum type stuff here. In order to do that, we need to know which batters we are targeting. If there's a team sending 5+ 30+% or higher strikeout guys (previous 7 days) to the plate, we need to know about it. The first step to knowing something like that is right here. Here's a watch list for every team that could possibly send at least five whiff artists to the plate tonight. We just have to wait for lineups. If we see a team start at least five players from their list, it's go time.
