Handicapper and MLB player prop specialist is back again this Monday with another top strikeout prop bet. This time his pick comes from the Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants matchup.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction: Will Max Fried Mow Down Joc Pederson and the Giants?

The Circle of Trust is one of the most powerful organizations in all of sports. When we see matchups we like, we've got guys that we can send out that'll stuff our pockets full of cash every single time. They're pretty much like a mafia but for good guys. Tonight the Atlanta Braves will host the San Francisco Giants and we've got one of the most esteemed members of the Circle of Trust on the bump for Atlanta. I hate to pick favorites and I won't ever do it but if I had to pick a favorite Circle of Trust member, this guy would be in consideration. He never goes too high and rarely goes too low so the books can't do much with him. He could easily get us into the Gambling Hall of Fame tonight.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction

Max Fried Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-130) (Bet $130 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at FanDuel*

We're at FanDuel for this one, but it can be played anywhere. Both BetMGM and DraftKings are offering 5.5 at -135 so it's not like they are very far off. Still, we've got to go with the best number. Plus, since we're already logged into FanDuel, we'll be able to check out some ladder opportunities. You don't want to waste logins people. Bet as much as you can each time you're logged in.

Max Fried is one of the most dominant Max's in all of sports today. With the rise of Max Homa, Fried is being pushed which makes him that much more dangerous. He knows he needs to step his game up each and every night to keep top Max billing and he's doing it. The part that makes him special is that he's only got 75 strikeouts in 80.2 innings so the books can't price him.

Over his last nine starts, Fried has fanned at least six guys in six of those starts. The times he didn't he reached five strikeouts twice. He was right there. The only time he bombed was against the Colorado Rockies when he only got four guys to sit down. That game was in Colorado and we almost never play guys in Colorado so that start doesn't even count. The important thing to remember is he's coming off a six-whiff game against the Washington Nationals who don't really strikeout. Max is fired up.

Tonight he's getting one of my favorite teams in MLB to target which is the San Francisco Giants. They've legit struck out 107 times in their last 372 at-bats. That's little league, bad people. They could be sending seven guys to the plate tonight that have fanned at least 27% of the time over the last two weeks. Another three are in the 20+% range. We've already seen Max go 8+ three times this season and this feels like another opportunity for something like that. I'm firing away at this.
