Handicapper and MLB player prop specialist John Hyslop is back again this Sunday with another top strikeout prop bet to add. This time his pick comes from the Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers matchup eyeing young flame thrower Spencer Strider.

Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Best Bet: Can Spencer Strider Sit Down Freddie Freeman and the Dodgers?

Unless you want to bet hockey, the only way to have action tonight is by betting on the Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves game. That's it. That's just the way it is. Not that I have anything against betting hockey but it's summertime people. Betting baseball is what we should be doing during these months. Everyone knows that. There will be plenty of time to bet on these other sports in a few months. College football and the NFL are right around the corner. But at the end of the day, it's almost July. It's baseball time. On top of it being the right time of year, the Dodgers-Braves will be on ESPN. We can all watch it. I seriously can't find even one reason to not bet on this game. Our hands are pretty much tied here.

Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Prediction

Spencer Strider Over 6.5 Strikeouts (-116) (Bet $116 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at FanDuel*

We're at FanDuel again since they have the best price. DraftKings is hanging -125 for 6.5 so they aren't far behind. The craziest number I've seen in 6.5 (-150) that BetMGM is currently showing. I have no idea how that one is even possible and I don't even know if I would play that (I probably would but closer to game time). As always, we have ladder opportunities at FanDuel and they are currently hanging 10+ (+630) for those of you that get down like that.

Spencer Strider is a strikeout guy by nature. Always has been (probably). The man has 72 strikeouts in only 47.2 innings pitched this season which is crazy good. I hate taking over 6.5 but it feels okay when the guy could fan 10 anytime he touches the ball. I think it's hard for the books to get a read on this guy since he came from the bullpen but it wouldn't surprise me to see 7.5s next to his name pretty soon. At least that's the logic I used to sell myself on taking over 6.5. It worked well.

Strider has only started five games this season but he's been pretty impressive (strikeout-wise) in all of them except one. We've seen him go 7+ in three of the five starts and even hit double digits once. Sure he was pretty bad last time out against the San Francisco Giants but that only makes tonight a bounce-back spot. Everyone loves a comeback story and Strider set himself up to have one on national television. Pretty smart if you ask me.

What's even better is tonight's start is coming against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Only five teams in MLB have struck out more than they have over the last week. We're talking about a team that struck out 16 times last night. That's terrible. I'm not sure what's going on with them but they are striking out like it's their job. There are five of them that have struck out in more than half of their at-bats over the last week. What is that about? There are three more that are in the 20+% range during that span. We took Ian Anderson Friday night and Max Fried last night so why not just go for the trifecta tonight? It makes sense.
