Gerrit Cole Under 8.5 Strikeouts -125
Houston Astros @ New York Yankees
The Yankees Gerrit Cole has had at least 10 strikeouts in all but one start this season. However, in this one he will face his former team that has a combined.338 career average with just 5 strikeouts in 24 at bats against him. In addition, the Astros have struck out less than all but two teams with 7.3 strikeouts per game.
J.D. Martinez to record 2+ hits +155
Detroit Tigers @ Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox will face Detroit and Spencer Turnbell on Thursday afternoon. Martinez is 0-2 in his career against Turnbell, but has the fourth best average against righties to start the season, at .368. He has 12 multi-hit games to start the year, and Turnbell has allowed nearly a hit per inning over his last two starts. The Tigers bullpen has also shown some cracks, with a league worst 1.69 WHIP to start the season. Take a flier on Martinez here.
Marcell Ozuna to hit a Home Run +290
Atlanta Braves @ Washington Nationals
Jon Lester will start for Washington in this one, after tossing 5 scoreless innings in his first start of the season. It is never easy to call home runs, but Ozuna has been heating up of late after a slow start to the season. He has at least one hit in 4 of his last 5 games and hit a home run on Wednesday. Ozuna has 3 home runs in 21 career at bats against Lester.
Madison Bumgarner over 5.5 strikeouts -112
Arizona Diamondbacks @ Miami Marlins
Madison Bumgarner has only allowed 2 runs in his last three starts and has averaged 6 strikeouts per game. In his career against this Marlins lineup, he has allowed a .198 average with 6 strikeouts in 39 at bats. The Marlins have not struck out at a high rate against him, but over the last 15 days they have averaged 9.6 strikeouts per game. Bumgarner has been getting better as the year has gone on, and will easily cross this total if he makes it into the 6th.
