ALDS Game 2 Player Props: Carlos Carrasco Over/Under Six Strikeouts?

Oct 06, 2018 2:53 PM EDT
  • There are two props offering value in Saturday's ALDS games between the Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros (4:37 p.m. ET, TBS) and New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox (8:15 p.m. ET, TBS)
  • This piece will focus on Andrew Benintendi, Miguel Andujar and Carlos Carrasco

Prop bets can be a great way to get action on a game. Bookmakers don’t have to worry about taking a lot of action on them, so there isn’t as great an incentive to post a competitive line.

As a result, props can be some of the most exploitable bets on the board.

These props can become downright unfair when you combine them with the FantasyLabs Player Prop tool.

We leverage props from five of the most popular sportsbooks against our projections and award each prop a grade. The most exploitable props earn a Bet Quality of 10 out of 10, and those props have historically crushed during NBA and NFL season.

Saturday’s props focus on MLB, specifically the ALDS showdowns between the Indians and Astros at 4:37 p.m. ET and Yankees and Red Sox at 8:15 p.m. ET. Both contests will be broadcast on TBS.

Let’s dive in to two props that I feel are offering significant value.
