BALTIMORE – MLB daily special betting for May 15 presents value at +125 odds for a combined player strikeout prop. The bet requires Shohei Ohtani, Tanner Houck, Freddy Peralta, and Framber Valdez to record 26 or more strikeouts.
The main selling point of this bet is Shohei Ohtani, who has proven to be one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.
Shohei Ohtani faces the Baltimore Orioles, who are coming off a shutout loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Ohtani ranks second in the MLB with 12.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
The 2021 AL MVP has +112 odds at online gambling sites to record over 7.5 strikeouts on Monday night. Ohtani has recorded eight or more strikeouts in three of his last four starts.
The Other Guys
Tanner Houck (-130) is favored to throw over 4.5 strikeouts against the Seattle Mariners, a feat he has accomplished in three of his last five starts. Although Houck has the lowest strikeout prop on MLB gambling sites, he gets the best matchup of the group.
Houck and the Boston Red Sox will take on the Seattle Mariners, the team that leads the MLB in strikeout percentage at 25.8%. The Mariners have three players ranking in the top 12 for hitter strikeouts this season.
Freddy Peralta has heavy -152 odds favoring him to throw over 5.5 strikeouts against the St. Louis Cardinals. When Peralta faced the Cardinals on April 7, he recorded seven strikeouts in six innings of work.
Although Ohtani is the biggest name on this prop, Framber Valdez could be the deciding factor if he replicates his last performance. In Framber’s last start, he recorded 12 strikeouts against the Los Angles Angels in which he went eight innings.
Valdez’s line for Monday night is 6.5 strikeouts with -143 odds to go over that number. He recorded seven or more strikeouts in four of his last five starts and faces a Chicago Cubs’ team that struck out 23 times in their last two games.
The upside from Houck and Valdez’s matchups gives this Bovada MLB daily special bet great value at +125.
