Gibson last pitched against the Pittsburgh Pirates, striking out nine batters. On August 16th, Gibson struck out 11 batters against the Cincinnati Reds. I like the over on strikeouts, if you want to run it up to 6+ at +285, I don’t hate that either.
Alex Cobb eclipsed 5+ strikeouts in four of his last five starts. In three of those starts, Cobb hit 7+ strikeouts. Playing Cobb at 7+ strikeouts at +350 is enticing, while 6+ at +172 seems like a safe bet tonight against the Phillies.
Over his last 7 games, Rhys Hoskins has 10 hits in 29 at-bats (.345 AVG). Bryce Harper has 8 hits in 22 at-bats (.364 AVG) over the last 7 games. JT Realmuto has 9 hits over his last 26 at-bats (.346 AVG) with a home run and 10 RBI.
- Bryce Harper to Record a Hit: -220
- JT Realmuto to Record a Hit: -195
- Rhys Hoskins to Record a Hit: -175
3 Player Hit Parlay: +215. Note: If you add Kyle Gibson O 4.5 (+128) to the parlay that boosts the odds to a nice +584 which I’m all over tonight.
