St. Louis Cardinals vs. Baltimore Orioles Prediction: Monetize With Miles Mikolas Mounting Up the Strikeouts

People, it's time we start to take over a little. I know the NBA Playoffs are on, but we also need some MLB action. It's called diversifying our portfolios. People do it in the stock market all the time. Plus if you say that's what you're doing when you talk about your sports betting, you won't sound like a degenerate gambler. This stuff works people. 100% of the time. One way to do it tonight is with the Baltimore Orioles vs St. Louis Cardinals game. It's at 7:45 pm ET which puts it squarely in primetime. That's where we need these things to be. This one isn't nationally televised but it really doesn't need to be since we're watching basketball anyway. It's a score app bet at best and that's all we need it to be. We're talking +130 here people. Here is our prediction and odds for tonight's Cardinals vs. Orioles game.

Clearly we're at FanDuel again because the others just can't keep up. When it comes to pitcher strikeout props, FanDuel is lapping the competition. I don't even think it's fair to FanDuel to call the others competition. It's crazy how much better life is at the big FD than it is anywhere else in the industry. I love it here.

Before you bet this, let me tell you about our guy Miles Mikolas. They call him the Lizard King because he ate a live lizard before. On camera too. He legit poured a Mountain Dew/Sprite/7Up on the thing and ate him. Man stuff. I don't know how this helps him strike people out but I'm sure it does somehow. We're talking about a live lizard here.

One thing about Mikolas is he doesn't get many swinging strikes but he still makes people sit down. Over his last five starts, he's fanned at least five batters in four of them. We're talking seven guys in two of those appearances. The only time he didn't hit five, he managed three so that's not terrible. He appears to be a guy that goes by opponent and he has a good one tonight.

The Baltimore Orioles will be in town and while they haven't been striking out at an alarming rate, they still whiff quite a bit. I'm not sure which ones will be in the lineup tonight but all but three regular players are 25+% whiff guys on the road this season. This game is in St. Louis. If Mikolas can have his normal 90+ pitch outing, he should be able to fan five of these guys.
