World Series Player Prop Pick 1: Justin Verlander Over 6.5 Strikeouts @ +110 with BetOnline

Throughout the postseason so far, only San Diego’s Yu Darvish have managed to record seven strikeouts or more against the Phillies, but Justin Verlander has enjoyed an extraordinary season and is certainly a shoe-in for the Al Cy Young Award for the best pitcher.

The 39-year-old recorded five hitless innings last time out against Philadelphia, and has six strikeouts in seven of his last 10 starts – we think he can hit the over 6.5 mark set for the first game.


World Series Player Prop Pick 2: Bryce Harper Over 1.5 Total Bases @ +114 with BetOnline

For our second World Series pick, we have predicted Bryce Harper to hit the over implied total for bases at 1.5.

While Verlander has been in impeccable pitching form, he will be up against Phillies hitter Bryce Harper, who has hit this mark in all but one his last 11 games.

Harper has hit .344 off fastballs, .311 off sliders, and .316 off curveballs this season and if anyone has the capacity to deal with Verlander’s box of tricks, it is him.
