John Hyslop looks at the San Francisco Giants vs. Kansas City Royals matchup and shares his favorite prop pick for this one.

San Francisco Giants vs. Kansas City Royals: Let the Strikeouts Flow for Brady Singer

Obviously, the NBA Finals are on tonight but one thing that makes gambling more fun is more gambling. For instance, let's say you have a three bets on the NBA Finals game. One way you could make that more fun is by adding a fourth bet. It doesn't even have to be on the NBA game. You could literally bet Korean Baseball if you wanted to and this will work. It's just how gambling works. What's even better is it works no matter how many bets you have. All the way up to infinity. So if you have 250 bets out there right now on the NBA game, you could realistically add another and have even more fun. Gambling is truly the gift that keeps giving. What I've decided to do is add a pick on the back end of the Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors game. It's not after the game or anything but it's late enough that I'll sweat both at the same time. It's the perfect plan if you ask me.

Brady Singer Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-136) (Bet $136 to win $100)

We're at FanDuel again but this line is pretty much everywhere at different prices. BetMGM and DraftKings have both gone -150+ and Barstool is almost there with -148. I'd imagine this thing keeps going up but you never really know. I'm fine with it at -150 and I'll even ladder it if we get the right lineup. Still, it's always best to get the best price and that's at FanDuel so that's where I'm at.

I've been waiting for this kid to show up for a couple years and it looks like he's doing it now. In my opinion, he's a 5.5 guy and not a 4.5 guy. We're talking about a kid who is 6'5" and 215 pounds here people. How can he NOT strike guys out. It makes no sense. So far this season he's thrown 35.1 innings and fanned 35 guys so he's starting to come around. I like to call this period the "calm before the storm".

Singer has appeared in eight games this season but he's only started five. I don't know why but it doesn't really matter. In those five starts, he managed to sit down at least five guys in three of them. The only time he didn't was against the Houston Astros and the Minnesota Twins. The Astros don't strike out so that game doesn't even count and in the instance of the Twins, he got revenge in his next start when he embarrassed eight of them. He's clean for that one.

Tonight Singer and the Kansas City Royals will be in San Francisco taking on the Giants. Over the last two weeks, only four teams have struck out more than they have. We're talking 28.3% of the time here people. At times they look like they'd be better off if they just went to the plate blindfolded. I'm a big lineup guy and I think we could get four G-Men that have whiffed 30+% of their at bats in the last 15 days. Our guy Singer is in a great spot. It could be the best spot anyone has ever been in. People are saying that.
