John Hyslop loves Kyle Wright today. Should you back him in the Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants matchup.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction: Backing Kyle Wright Against the Giants

I know we don't have a lot of time to get this in but we need to focus on the bright side here. We have action people. Not only do we have action, but we have it during the day. That's probably the best kind of action a person can get. Think about it, we're legit going to be eating our lunch, right in the middle of the workday, just sweating out a bet. Like kings (and queens). Not just any bet either. We're talking about a bet that has no chance of losing here. It's crazy to think we're going to get a day this good today but here we are. We deserve it too. I'm calling it now. This will be the greatest day in gambling history (probably).

Kyle Wright Over 5.5 Strikeouts (-145) (Bet $145 to win $100)

We're at BetMGM since the other books are on to this guy. Right now, DraftKings has 5.5 (-160) which is way up there. Over at FanDuel we're staring at 5.5 (-152) which isn't great but it's our second best option. As always, we can just grab a ladder over there and right now 7+ is +124 so that's not out of the question.

Honestly, Kyle Wright still owes us money but this is exactly why you don't make banned lists. How could we possibly get our money back if we banned the guy? It makes no sense. Plus, we wouldn't have action on a guy that has 88 strikeouts in just 79.2 innings of work so far this season. That feels dumb to me. We want action on these types of pitchers. Especially when they are carrying us through our lunch breaks.

We took Kyle Wright way back on June 1st to fan at least six Arizona Diamondbacks. The guy only got five that day. Everyone was mad and cursing his name but I didn't. I knew he was good for it. Since that day Wright has started three times. The guy hasn't sat down less than seven guys in any of those starts. I know it was the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates and Oakland Athletics, but he can only pitch against who is on the schedule. Everyone knows that.

Today he's getting the San Francisco Giants who are pretty much like his last three opponents. They enjoy a good walk back to the dugout after striking out. In fact, over the last two weeks, only two teams in MLB have enjoyed more walks back to the dugout after whiffing than the Giants. We're talking 124 strikeouts in just 411 at bats. That's really bad. If you're familiar with math that's more than 30% of the time. My guess is Wright gets to six strikeouts by the second inning. Maybe even sooner.
