A unique prop market that has emerged at FanDuel this year is daily strikeout leader. The sportsbook lists odds for every starting pitcher on a given day and you can bet on who will finish with the most strikeouts on the slate.
Keep in mind, much like sports such as golf with leaderboards, dead-heat rules do apply. So if a pitcher you bet on ties with another pitcher, your odds are cut in half.
For today's slate, there are plenty of strikeout artists to pick from. At FanDuel, superstar Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels is the favorite to lead the day in strikeouts. He takes on the Chicago White Sox.
Toronto Blue Jays ace Kevin Gausman, today against the San Francisco Giants, is not far behind at +550, followed by Ohtani's counterpart on Tuesday, Michael Kopech, at +1000, and San Diego Padres veteran right-hander Yu Darvish (+1100), who takes on the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Action Network director of analytics Sean Koerner dives through MLB pitcher props regularly, and below you can find his projections for the daily strikeout leader today, Tuesday, June 27th.
