Max Scherzer OVER 6 STRIKEOUTS
Normally I don’t bet a lot of K props but this one is too good to pass up. Max Scherzer returns from the IL to start tonight against Milwaukee. He will not be on a pitch limit from everything I’m reading. The last time Max came off an IL stint, he struck out 11 so maybe the rest does him good. He also struck out 7 in just 3 innings of a rehab start. The Brewers are top 10 in strikeout rate this season. Last season vs the Brewers, Max struck out 10. In 20 starts this season, Scherzer has stuck out 6+ in 16 of them. If you feel more comfortable at 6 being a win, not a push, then you can get -175 Odds at Draftkings for Over 5.5. I’ve shopped this line. Fanduel has Max over 6+ at -220! William Hill at -125 seems like a gift too good to pass up.
