Patrick Sandoval OVER 4.5 Strikeouts (+105)

Sandoval had a great season-opening start and will continue to do so tonight. The Astros are one of the harder teams to strike out, but they are coming off a terrible performance against the Mariners and this line is low enough to make sense. Sandoval struck out six batters in his first game – and only did that in four innings. If he can get a few extra batters on his plate tonight, then I see this line showing great value.  – Donnavan Smoot

Joe Musgrove OVER 6.5 Strikeouts (-130)

My strategy early in the 2022 MLB season has been to take top-line pitchers to hit their strikeout props against teams that struggle putting the bat on the ball.

It’s produced some solid results so far, but after missing my Frankie Montas prop on Monday, I’m not going to stray from the game plan tonight.

Joe Musgrove has recorded 14 punchouts through his first two starts of the season, and he’s facing a Cincinnati Reds team that is striking out 9.73 times per game so far this year.

Musgrove should have no problem handling this lineup, and I love that he has thrown 6.0 and 6.2 innings in his first two starts. That extra length should help him hit this prop with ease. – Peter Dewey

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox OVER 9 Runs (-115)

It’s a hitters kind of night in Boston with the wind blowing out upwards of 15 mph to center field.Red Sox SPNate Eovaldi's got good swing-and-miss stuff, but like Blue Jays SP Yusei Kikuchi, he has a tendency to get tagged hard; evidenced by four dingers in just two starts so far in April in cold weather.

Via MLB Statcast, Kikuchi's average exit velocity off the bat is just under 97 mph, giving up a hard hit percentage of 75%. It's part of the reason I love J.D. Martinez to leave the yard tonight and will be including him in our BetSided "Daily Dinger" best home run prop bet picks.

We should see runs-a-plenty at Fenway tonight. - Ben Heisler
