Handicapper and player prop expert John Hyslop is back with another top MLB player prop bet for Wednesday afternoon This time he's looking at the San Francisco Giants vs. Detroit Tigers game with his sights set on Rony Garcia.
ANALYSIS

San Francisco Giants vs. Detroit Tigers Prediction: Will Rony Garcia Ring Up Joc Pederson and the Giants?

The day of second chances continues at 3:45 pm ET when the Detroit Tigers visit the San Francisco Giants. I love a good day baseball bet and this one is the perfect one to follow up the 1:00 pm ET action. If we play our cards right, we could have action from lunchtime all the way until 10:00 pm ET. We just need to find a good bet in the 7:00 pm ET hour and we're home. That feels like something we could do. We've done it before. Still, the key to gambling all day is finding bets that have no chance of losing. That way we can get excited about gambling all day since we know there's no chance we're going to lose. Genius on our part. Lucky for us, the bet I have for the second wave of games today has a 0.0% chance of losing. In fact, someone at DraftKings could get fired for posting this line. It's the easiest bet I've ever seen in my life.

San Francisco Giants vs. Detroit Tigers Prediction

Rony Garcia Over 3.5 Strikeouts (-120) (Bet $120 to win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings*

This one is at DraftKings as we speak. FanDuel has the same exact 3.5 number but they want -134 which is pretty expensive if you ask me. Obviously, if you have to play at FanDuel we're still paying it but still. Feels a little expensive. Just to get back at them, I'd check out the ladders for Garcia since you're already logged in. They've got 5+ (+180) and 6+ (+400) just sitting there. If you wanted to get wild you could even go 7+ (+870).

Rony Garcia had a shot at the Circle of Trust the last time I played him but didn't capitalize. The thing is, it was nobody's fault. It was Friday night, and I had nothing better to do. I was gassed up from my other bets and I wanted more action. I saw a guy with 41 strikeouts in 38 innings pitched and was excited because he was going against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Plus it was Friday night and I was drinking.

I don't think we should condemn this guy since the Diamondbacks have really calmed down in terms of strikeouts. Over the last 15 days, only one team in MLB has struck out less than they have. Garcia just ran into a buzzsaw. Not his fault. In fact, it was only the second time in six starts that he had not fanned at least four guys. In both starts where he failed to reach four strikeouts, he ended with three. Rony will get us right up to the number people.

Today Garcia won't have to worry about a team that doesn't strike out since he's playing the San Francisco Giants. Over the last two weeks, they've struck out in almost 30% of their at-bats. That's horrific. There's a real chance we see Yermin Mercedes and Austin Slater out there today and both of those guys are at least 41.4% strikeout guys over the last couple of weeks. They could legit get us home by themselves. This might be the greatest play of all time. Maybe even better.
