ARIEL EPSTEIN: Happy Tuesday. I'm the Prop Queen, Ariel Epstein, with three strikeout props in Major League Baseball tonight. I'm starting with an under, and that's the Cincinnati Reds right-hander Luis Castillo under 5 and 1/2 strikeouts. The Boston Red Sox are a bottom 10 K rate team this year against righties, averaging just over four strikeouts per game. Even when the Red Sox are at home against a righty, they're averaging just over four K's. This season, Castillo has only gone over this number one time of 5 and 1/2. Give me the under 5 and 1/2 strikeouts on Luis Castillo.

For my second K prop, I'm going with the over 4 and 1/2 strikeouts on Colorado Rockies starter Germán Márquez. He's up against the Miami Marlins, who average just over five strikeouts per game when up against a right-handed starter on the road. Márquez has been much more of a strikeout pitcher at home too. At home this season, Márquez has gone over 4 and 1/2 strikeouts in five of his six home starts. Also, going back to last year, Márquez had seven strikeouts against the Marlins. Give me the over 4 and 1/2 strikeouts on Germán Márquez.

For my last K prop-- this might be my favorite one-- it's the over 3 and 1/2 strikeouts on Arizona Diamondbacks starter Humberto Castellanos. When you're going up against the Atlanta Braves, you know you're going over, especially because righties are averaging just under six strikeouts per start up against those Braves this year. There have been four different starts in his last five outings where Castellanos went over this number against a team that's top 10 in K rate against righties. I'm going with that over, 3 and 1/2 strikeouts on Humberto Castellanos.

Here's your Prop Queen recap. I'm going with the under 5 and 1/2 strikeouts on Luis Castillo, over 4 and 1/2 strikeouts on Germán Márquez, and over 3 and 1/2 strikeouts on Humberto Castellanos. That's it for me, your Prop Queen, Ariel Epstein, here on this Tuesday in Major League Baseball. Good luck with your bets tonight.
