Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels Best Bet: Can George Kirby Rack Up The Strikeouts?

The first bet of the day is always the best one. I don't mean that in terms of winning percentage. I just mean that feeling-wise, it's unmatched. This is the one we're telling our friends about all day long. This is the one we're posting on Twitter and saying it has a 0.0% chance of losing. It's the one that today will be remembered forever. We need it to be good. Great even.

Lucky for us, I found one that may go down as the greatest bet in the history of bets. The only issue with this one is the fact that it is an MLB game being played at 10:10 pm ET. That's late for us east coasters plus we could be watching the last game of the NBA season at that same time. Still, we need action and we need good action. That's just how action works.

Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for today's game between the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels.

Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels Best Bet

George Kirby Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-135) (Bet $135 to win $100)

*Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing*

We're at DraftKings for this one and before you get mad about all that juice, just know that is the best price I've seen. FanDuel has 5.5 (-138) so playing it there like that is fine but they also have ladders that make sense. So if you are an anti-juice person, maybe 7+ (+152) makes sense. Or even 8+ (+310) if you want to get wild. At the end of the day t's all deadly.

Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels Prediction

What can I say about George Kirby that you don't already know. The kid is a highly valued member of the Slop Circle of Trust. I'd trust this kid to watch my kids. That's how trusted he is. He just "gets it". I always tell my kids, "steer clear of the strong and beat up on the weak". This kid is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. He's been doing it since he got called up and he's actually only getting better at it.

There are certain teams that I don't target for strikeout props and two of them are the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox. It's just not done. Well, three of Kirby's games this season have been against them. He didn't clear four strikeouts in any of those games. On the flip side, Kirby has seen two teams that I target all the time in the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics, and in both of those games, the kid went 8+. One of those games got him into the Slop Circle of Trust.

Tonight the Seattle Mariners will host a team that is tied for the most strikeouts in MLB, the Los Angeles Angels. There are some that think they will end up running away from the Atlanta Braves for the strikeout title but it's still early. I say, let's see how July goes before we get too crazy. With guys like Brandon Marsh, Jared Walsh, Taylor Ward, Juan Lagares, and Andrew Velazquez playing every day, they could easily take home the team strikeout crown. We could even see a record since all of those guys have really turned up lately striking out at least 30% of the time over that span. This feels like the greatest bet of all time.
