Ready to make some extra money before Independence Day? Check out our 2 MLB strikeout props for Monday, July 3. Good luck, and Happy 4th to all!

Logan Webb OVER 5.5 Strikeouts (-125) (BetRivers)

This is probably my favorite prop bet on today’s MLB board. Webb has a nasty sinker that drops off the table when he’s throwing it well. Seattle ranks next to last in strikeouts per game (9.73), so Webb is likely to have a field day with this lineup.

Speaking of this M’s lineup, they have 8 hitters with a strikeout rate of 25.7% or higher. Jarred Kelenic and Teoscar Hernandez have both been exceptionally bad at striking out this season (33% and 32.5%, respectively). Slugger 3B Eugenio Suarez isn’t too far behind, as his K-rate is 28.2%.

As for Webb, he’s gone over this strikeout total in 10 of his 17 starts this season. We like the fact that he strikes out 24% of the batters that he faces. As long as Webb can pitch into the 6th inning, he shouldn’t have any trouble racking up 6 or more Ks.

Bryan Woo OVER 5.5 Strikeouts (-118) (FanDuel)

Woo doesn’t have an impressive ERA, but he has “wooed” us with 32 strikeouts in only 22.2 innings of work this season. He just compiled 7 strikeouts against the Nationals, which is saying something because they have the lowest K-rate in MLB. Woo also struck out 9 White Sox hitters back on June 16th.

Woo has a lively 4-seam fastball that he often gets hitters to chase up in the zone. He also has an above-average sinker, which has helped him garner a K-rate of 33.3% so far this season. Woo should have plenty of success against a Giants lineup that ranks 28th in strikeout rate this season (9.69).

Seven of San Fran’s hitters strike out at least 25.3% of the time. Blake Sabol and JD Davis both have Whiff rates of above 32%. Look for Woo to strike out 6 or more hitters tonight for the 4th time this season. Good luck!
