Yusei Kikuchi Player Prop Prediction, Projection
Kikuchi has been cooking recently. In his last four starts, he's given up just three earned runs across 22 innings. He also has 23 strikeouts in those four starts.
The prognostication expects that pace to slow down for Kikuchi against the Guardians.
BetMGM has set his strikeout total at 5.5 with -125 juice to the over, while the under sits at -105. That's the best price on the under in the market.
The model predicts Kikuchi will have 4.9 strikeouts tonight, good enough for a 12.5% betting edge.
