Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies Best Bet: Can Ranger Suarez Rack Up the Strikeouts?

Sometimes you have to shoot the moon. You just do. When you aim high, even if you miss your mark, you still feel pretty good about yourself. It actually gives you a mental way out. You aimed high. You weren't even supposed to hit your mark. The reason I say this is because we have a way to aim high tonight people. It feels like our time to shine. We've got the horse, and we've got the matchup. We've also got a way to aim high and low at the same time which is borderline amazing. Think about any other arena where you can aim high and low at the same time and come out on top. You can't because it just doesn't happen. We're living the dream here people.

We're at FanDuel for this one because they have the ladders. I've said it a million times but I'll say it again, we need ladders at every book. They just make sense. That's not the only reason we're at FanDuel for this one though. They also happen to be the only book I've seen that has a number for tonight on this beast. I'm telling you, FanDuel is dominating the pitcher strikeout market right now.

Ranger Suarez. First thing I thought about when I saw this guy's name was Luis Suarez and the way he likes to bite people. Honestly, I don't see Ranger as a biter but that's what I think of when I see the last name, Suarez. Probably because I call Luis Suarez, "Suarez". I don't know what this has to do with anything, but I'm taking it as a good sign.

Ranger may not be a biter but one thing he's becoming is a strikeout guy. Not just any kind of strikeout guy, but an "undercover" strikeout guy which is the best kind. After not striking out more than four guys in any of his first five starts, he's struck out at least five guys in each of his last three outings. Two of those games were against the Los Angeles Dodgers which makes them a step above legit.

Tonight, Suarez gets the Atlanta Braves, and while they stroke the ball, they strike out a ton too. Nobody in MLB has struck out more than them on a per-game basis this season. Nobody. Everyone gets 27 outs per game and they choose to use theirs to strikeout. We just saw Kyle Gibson fan eight of them last night. The Phillies have let Suarez go over 100 in pitch count twice this season. If he is even remotely effective tonight that could happen again. I think he gets at least five whiffs tonight which would put us in a good spot.
