The Philadelphia Phillies take on the Atlanta Braves for their second game in their four-game series tonight. Can Kyle Gibson rack up the strikeouts tonight? John Hyslop answers.

Atlanta Braves vs Philadelphia Phillies Prediction: Can Kyle Gibson Rack Up the Strikeouts?

I was doing my normal routine this morning. Feeding dogs, mentally preparing kids for school, and writing the strikeout watch list article (which is the single greatest asset to strikeout prop bettors) when I saw something. I saw a play so good that I immediately stopped doing what I was doing and started writing this article.

This is a play we have to get in immediately. Like right now. Like, don't wait another second. Stop what you are doing right now, open your account and let the cash flow onto the guy you are about to read about. This is pretty much like the time DraftKings let us bet Daniel Gafford under 3s even though he's never attempted one in his life. I still can't believe this bet is a thing. Let's dive into my prediction, pick, and the odds for the Braves vs Phillies game tonight.

Atlanta Braves vs Philadelphia Phillies Pick

Kyle Gibson 6+ Strikeouts (+162) (Bet $100 to win $162)

*Odds available at FanDuel at time of publishing*

This one is at FanDuel but if you wanted to take over 4.5 instead you can. It's -138 but it's available. Still, that's far better than the -165 DraftKings is hanging right now. I don't blame them though. I'd make people pay for -165 too. Don't make it easy on us. We want the challenge. We're more than up for it.

Atlanta Braves vs Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

Do you know who else is up for a challenge? Kyle Gibson. Kind of. Here's what I like about this guy. He beats upon the weak. Not literally but in a baseball sense which makes it ok. When it comes to teams that don't strike out much, he gets them out in other ways. I respect that about this guy. He's just himself out there.

I'm not just talking out of my ass. I have stats. So far this season, Gibson has seen three teams that I would call "strikeout target teams". What I mean by that is, that they could throw a lineup out there that strikes out more than most. Those teams are the Oakland A's, Miami Marlins, and San Diego Padres. Gibson sat at least six guys down in all of those starts. In his other starts this season, he didn't come close. But those were against teams I would never target (Dodgers, Rockies, Mets). Nobody would. Everyone knows that.

Tonight we get what most pitchers call a strikeout buffet. It's all you can eat when you play the Atlanta Braves. Sure they can hit a little, but when they get out, they can. It's as simple as that. They legit have nine guys that could be in the lineup tonight that are at least 28% strikeout guys. There are only nine spots in the lineup people. That's insane. At the time of writing, there's no chance this bet loses.
