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 stacked betting slate.
ANALYSIS

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

We made it to Friday and if we're being honest, it's been a ridiculously good week for the watch list. I don't have the numbers in front of me but if I did I am sure they would reflect that (probably). The thing about Friday is you can't half-step. You need to go into the weekend strong because even though the losses don't count on Saturday, you still want to be at your best. Plus we're getting into the summer when there are pool, beach, and boat days so the bets tend to slide a little on the weekend. It's the circle of life. It's fine. One way we can ensure that we aren't depositing all the time is just by going undefeated on Fridays. It's an old-school trick I picked up along the way and it still works. If you just go undefeated on Friday, then the losses on the weekend get canceled out. That's next-level stuff, I know. To help with an undefeated Friday, we need the watch list. We're talking ladders to the moon here people.

Remember, we need to see AT LEAST five of these batters in these lineups when they are released. If that happens, get ready to fire away. Be somebody today.
