9:30PM-MLB: 0/1 K or 2/More Ks

The New York Yankees host the Philadelphia Phillies in this classic interleague rematch between the teams that competed for last year’s World Series.  Instead of any type of matchup picks, we get 3 props for this game. The third prop asks us how many hitters will strike out in the 8th and 9th inning.

TIP: Wait until the last minute to make your decision on this prop because whether the Yankees hit or not in the Bottom of the 9th is a HUGE factor in this prop.  Also, knowledge of who might be coming to the plate will be helpful as well. Check out

StreakFacts

  • Phillies hitters have struck out 414 times in 62 games
  • Yankees hitters have struck out 420 times in 64 games
  • Phillies bullpen has struck out 129 hitters in 157 2/3 innings (27.3% of outs are K’s)
  • Yankees bullpen has struck out 131 hitters in 159 1/3 innings (27.4% of outs are K’s)
  • Away, the Phillies bullpen has struck out 69 in 88 1/3 innings (26.0% of outs are K’s)
  • Home, Yankees bullpen has struck out 66 in 75 2/3 innings (29.1% of outs are K’s)
  • Phillies closer Brad Lidge has struck out 10 in 8 innings pitched (41.7% of outs are K’s)
  • Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has struck out 20 in 22 2/3 innings pitched (29.4% of outs are K’s)

Stig picks 2/More strikeouts * * * (3 out of 5)

Let’s assume that 25 percent of hitters will strike out (which is a low estimate), if the Yankees are leading, then out of the 9 outs, then the average amount of strikeouts would be 2.25, which is the ‘over’.  IF the Yankees are losing, and must bat the bottom of the 9th, then you can safely assume there will be more than 2 strikeouts, especially if Lidge and his high strikeout rate comes into pitch.
