World Series Bets
Game 3 props
1st inning Yes score -105 at Circa is my first prop bet for Game 3 of the World Series. With two rookie pitchers and the game lined 8.5 with the juice slightly to the over, I think -105 is a great price today. I’ve seen as high as -115 (pass) and as low as + 100. Anything at + 100 or better would be worth a bigger bet.
The second prop bet I made is Luis Garcia over 4.5 strikeouts -110 also at Circa. I think Luis Garcia faces enough batter to get at least 5 strikeouts and wouldn’t surprise me to see him blow thru this number especially if he pitches 5-6 innings like I expect him to do.
Jorge Soler is in the lineup and batting 5th today and Joc Pederson is on the bench for Game 3. I was worried the Braves might sit Soler, but they are rewarding him for his hitting in the first two games and leaving him in the lineup over Pederson. Soler is still 16/1 and he’ll have a chance to drop that number with a strong performance in Game 3.
On the Astros side my favorite MVP bet is still today’s Game 3 starter Luis Garcia at 35/1. He’s lined up to pitch again in Game 6 or 7 potentially and he’ll have the chance to lay the groundwork for his World Series MVP tonight with 5-6 strong innings against the Braves. Luis Garcia pitching deep into the game tonight with 5+ strikeouts while getting the win are the boxes Garcia would need to check to be competitive in the World Series MVP race.
