Happy Sandy Alcantara Day, folks!
The NL Cy Young favorite will be on the mound against the Phillies today with his 10-4 record and 1.88 ERA and it's a perfect opportunity to get in on his props for this start.
The over/under on Alcantara's strikeouts is at 5.5 and I really like the over here. He's hit the over in three of his last six starts, with double-digit strikeouts in all three of those. Not to mention, one of those outings was against the Phillies. When Alcantara faced the Phillies in July, he has 12 strikeouts against them in eight innings. And I see him going over on this total against them once again in this one.
Alcantara's over/under on hits allowed for this game is also at 5.5 and I like the under. He allowed only four hits to the Phillies in that last outing, so I see the Philadelphia lineup have a tricky time getting hits off of him again.
When it comes to walks, I could see Alcantara hitting the over of 1.5. He's hit that over in three of his last four starts, including against the Phillies in July when he walked two batters. He's walked a total of 40 batters in his 22 starts this season.
Alcantara surrendered two runs to the Phillies in that last start and I like the under 2.5 on his earned runs in this outing as well. He's also hit the under on this in four of his last five starts. So I see Alcantara having a solid outing against the Phillies tonight and you can bet on it risk-free with the offer below!
