May 26 MLB K Prop Bet Tips

German Márquez, Colorado Rockies @ New York Mets (7:10 p.m. ET)

Over 5.5 strikeouts (-150)

Wager: 1 unit

New York’s lineup has been decimated by injuries lately, losing Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, Michael Conforto, Kevin Pillar, Brandon Nimmo, and J.D. Davis to the injured list. The Mets’ offense, which currently ranks last in the NL in runs scored, hits, and total bases, has managed just 7 runs over their last four games combined.

Accordingly, Márquez will be in a prime spot to take advantage of New York’s depleted lineup tonight. In addition to averaging over a strikeout per inning this year (9.6 K/9), he’s notched 22 Ks over his last three starts combined and has recorded at least 6 strikeouts in six of his last eight outings. He’s also been much more effective on the road throughout his career, posting a 3.55 ERA away from Coors Field versus a 5.08 mark at home.

After completing at least 6 innings in each of his previous three starts, Márquez should be able to pitch relatively deep into this game as well, making him a good bet to hit the over here.

Marcus Stroman, New York Mets vs. Colorado Rockies (7:10 p.m. ET)

Over 5.5 Strikeouts (+110)

Wager: 1 unit

While I certainly like Márquez’s matchup in this game, I like Stroman’s matchup just as much. The Rockies have the worst road offense in baseball this year (59 wRC+), averaging an anemic 2.71 runs per game away from Coors Field. They’re also 3-18 on the road this year.

Stroman isn’t a big strikeout pitcher, averaging 7.4 K/9 this year and for his career. He is coming off an 8-strikeout performance against the Marlins, however, and has recorded at least 6 punchouts in three of his last five outings. Given that he shouldn’t face much resistance from Colorado, he should be able to pitch deep enough to notch at least 6 strikeouts in this game as well.

All signs point to this game being a low-scoring pitcher’s duel, which is why I’m banking on both starters to go 6-7 innings and exceed 5.5 strikeouts.
