Best MLB Strikeout Bets: Lock In This Expert's Best MLB Player Prop Bets for Wednesday

Our streak of four consecutive days of profit with strikeout props came to an end yesterday.

That just means it's time to start a new streak today.

With many day games on the slate, make sure to get your bets in as soon as possible! Here are three strikeout props I'll be rocking with today.

May 23 Best MLB Strikeout Props

Paul Skenes Over 7.5 Ks (-108) CLICK HERE TO SEE WHICH SPORTSBOOK HAS THE BEST ODDS

I'm typically not a fan of riding rookie pitchers with such a high prop number, but I'll do it for Paul Skenes.

Skenes has struck out 45% of his first 40 batters. He's also held teams to a .114 ISO and wOBA of .249 with nearly 65% of ground balls.

Meanwhile, he'll face a Giants lineup that has struck 25.5% of the time since last season. There are literally six batters in the San Francisco lineup with strikeout rates of at least 25.2% since last season against righties.

Therefore, don't be surprised if Skenes adds three (or more) consecutive strikeouts. He has the potential to pile them up against this San Francisco projected lineup.

Zack Wheeler Under 6.5 Ks (+118) CLICK HERE TO SEE WHICH SPORTSBOOK HAS THE BEST ODDS

Zack Wheeler will face a Texas Rangers lineup that should have seven lefties. Those seven lefties have only struck out 17.6% of the time against righties this season.

Meanwhile, Wheeler has only struck out 22.2% of lefties and has even allowed a .207 ISO and wOBA of .339 to lefties this year.

Even last season, Wheeler earned just 22% of strikeouts against lefties. So he's not racking up strikeouts against lefties and still has a 6.5 K prop, despite likely facing seven lefties. Yeah, I'll back his Under.

Frankie Montas Under 3.5 Ks (+102) CLICK HERE TO SEE WHICH SPORTSBOOK HAS THE BEST ODDS

The Reds will send Frankie Montas to the mound. Montas has earned just 16.1% of strikeouts this season and has also allowed a .168 ISO and wOBA of .329 to 155 batters.

He'll be in line to face a Padres lineup that has only struck out 19.3% of the time against righties since last year. The lineup will likely only have two batters with high strikeout rates. The other Padres have struck out no more than 21.7% of the time against righties.

Only Manny Machado and Kyle Higashioka are targets for Montas. Therefore, it's unlikely he will get to four strikeouts today. Back his Under.
