Astros vs Braves Props: Best Baseball Props Today World Series Game 3

Ian Anderson: Over 3.5 Strikeouts (+105) at BetMGM

At plus odds, I really like the value on this prop bet.

Ian Anderson is a very solid young pitcher who has already demonstrated his ability to rack up strikeouts in this postseason. In his lone NLDS start, Anderson struck out six batters over five innings. In his most recent start that came in Game 6, he struck out four batters over four innings.

I expect him to last a lot longer in this game than he has in his other three starts this postseason.

Back Anderson’s Over on strikeouts at a low total of 3.5 simply because of the high-end talent and stuff.

Luis Garcia: Over 4.5 Strikeouts (+100) at BetMGM

I’m backing another plus-odds prop bet, but this one is on the Astros’ starting pitcher.

Luis Garcia looked absolutely fantastic in his last start in Game 6 of the ALCS, and I’m expecting a similar night for him in Game 3 of the World Series.

Garcia’s performance in the ALCS made headlines as he somehow threw the five fastest pitches of his career within the start, averaging over 3 miles per hour more on his fastball.

His stuff was crisp, and on extra rest, I’m expecting it to be the same tonight. Back the young starter to pitch well once again and rack up 5+ strikeouts in the process.

Eddie Rosario: Over 0.5 RBIs (+160) at BetMGM

Eddie Rosario has had one of the most incredible postseason performances in recent memory so far and has provided plenty of heroics for the Braves.

After going 2-for-5 with a double in Game 1 of the World Series, Rosario went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Game 2. I’m expecting a bounce-back in a potentially big way.

Back the hottest hitter on the planet to drive in at least one run in Game 3.
