D.K. Metcalf Longest Reception Over 24.5 Yards
Metcalf has gone over 25 yards for his longest catch of the game three times out of four games so far this season. R Wilson has actually connected over four passes of 39 yards or longer and not one of them has been to Metcalf. That stat changes on Thursday, as those two, connect on at least one huge play against a team in the Rams that currently sees themselves having the 27th ranked defense in yards against in the league.
Russell Wilson Under 268.5 Passing Yards
Many people are expecting a lot of points tonight, but I’m not so sure, since these teams know each other so well. Russell has had his struggles and has looked human against the Rams. He hasn’t had 269+ passing yards in 11 straight starts against them. U268.5!
The Parlay Kid
Van Jefferson Longest Reception Over 19.5 Yards
Jefferson is the Rams long ball threat and has gone over this number in three out of four games. Expect the Seahawks to keep their focus on Kupp and Woods while the emerging young receiver goes over this number again.
The Parlay Kid
Diana Taurasi Over 16.5 Points
What? The Parlay Kid taking a WNBA prop? After yesterday I am not worthy of picking MLB and this is the next best thing. Taurasi is averaging 22 points per game through the first three games of this series and with the Mercury looking to close this series out Taurasi will be at her best.
Phoenix Mercury +1.5
Phoenix is turning up the heat in the WNBA playoffs and has won 3 of their 4 games. They have played fantastic and have the Las Vegas Aces down on their luck. Center Brittney Griner has led the Mercury in the playoffs averaging 21 points on 58% shooting.
Corey Seager to Hit a Home Run
Seager struggled for a big part of the season but has got hot at the right time. Seager has 6 home runs in his last 7 games and also has 20 hits in his last 40 at-bats. In last year's postseason, Seager had 8 homers in 18 games. Love the +360!
Gerrit Cole 6+ strikeouts and Yankees win
I tend to think this is going to be a low-scoring game, but you have to give the advantage to Cole and the Yankees bullpen at the moment. Cole has had 6+ strikeouts in 15 of his last 16 starts. I like the idea of the odds going from -122 to +130 by adding Cole K's to the Yanks win. Even if Boone goes to the bullpen early, Cole would likely only need 5 innings to get there. In 4 starts against the Red Sox this season, Cole had 6+ strikeouts in all of them. Let's Go Yankees!
The Parlay Kid
Gerrit Cole 5+ Strikeouts and Yankees Win
I love the pitching advantage here for the Yankees regardless of a less than stellar Cole his last few starts. The Yankees lit up Nathan Eovaldi just 10 days ago and will do so again. Cole has struck out less than five batters only three times in his 30 starts and had 6+ strikeouts in all four starts against the Red Sox this season.
Rafael Devers to Hit a Home Run
Devers hit 2 homers on Sunday versus Washington and has feasted off the fastball of Yankees starter G Cole. Devers has homered off of Cole in 3 of Cole’s last 4 starts against the BoSox.
