Philadelphia Phillies vs San Francisco Giants Best Bet: Can Aaron Nola Limit The Giants' Lineup?

I was looking at my gambling card for today and saw something nobody wants to see. There is a gigantic hole from roughly 5:30pm ET until 7:05pm ET. I'm not sure how it happened and it's totally not my fault since I don't make the schedules but I'm the one that needs to fix it. It's pretty much like being a husband/dad. Nothing is your fault but you are the one that has to fix it.

Lucky for us, there's a game at 6:05pm ET that we can get in on. It's a little later than I wanted but beggars can't be choosers. Maybe our 3:45pm ET guy we bet can stretch things out a little. Who really knows? One thing I do know is that this guy is going to sit people down left and right and his number is like three guys short. Not sure how that happened but at least we don't have to fix it. We can just bet it and move on with our lives.

Let's dive into my best bet, prediction, and the odds for Wednesday’s Giants vs Phillies game.

Philadelphia Phillies vs San Francisco Giants Player Prop Best Bet

Aaron Nola Over 6.5 Strikeouts (-105) (Bet $105 to win $100)

*Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing*

This one is at DraftKings but if you want to play at FanDuel you can since they have the same number for -106. Even BetMGM is already to market with 6.5 at -105 so it's a full-on agreement party at this point. The thing is, I think they are a little light on this guy. It feels wrong to me.

Philadelphia Phillies vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

Aaron Nola. Is he a "thing" yet? I'd say almost. I remember when he came into the league he was supposed to be the next "thing". Whether he's gotten there or not is not what I'm here to debate. What I'm here to talk about is the fact that he's a 6.5 guy for short money today. That can't be right. My brain has him more of a 7.5 guy for plus money. I've seen him pitch so I know what I'm talking about (probably).

First of all, in his last seven starts, he's struck out at least seven guys in six of them. The only time he failed to get to seven was against the Seattle Mariners. He fanned six that day. Sue him. I didn't see the game but he probably got hosed on multiple strikes that were called balls. It happens. The crazy part is, that two of those six times getting at least seven were against the New York Mets. That's ridiculous.

The great part about this evening is Nola won't have to get home on 6.5 against the Mets. We're talking the San Francisco Giants here people. They don't strike out a ton but they do their fair share of whiffing. Think 25% or so as a team in the last two weeks. If we see a lineup today with Joey Bart, Stuart Fairchild and Even Longoria, this will cash by the fourth inning. Even if we don't, I think Nola will show us at least seven strikeouts. He's just that kind of guy.
