So far this season, Cal Quantrill has not been racking up the strikeouts for the Cleveland Guardians. He has struck out three batters in each of his first three starts, even in his last two starts where he went five or more innings. Here, we get a great price on him staying under five strikeouts against the Detroit Tigers in a Wednesday afternoon start.

The Tigers are in the middle of the pack in strikeouts this year, which should make it tough for Quantrill to pile up strikeouts in this game. Quantrill’s first two starts came against the Seattle Mariners, who have struck out more than two-thirds of the teams in the league this season. But Quantrill still only struck out three Mariners in each of those starts, and the Tigers should be able to put the ball in play in this game.

Quantrill’s pitching to contact this season has also led to plenty of hits, which could see him pulled early. He has given up six or more hits in all three of his starts this season, giving up at least three runs in each of those starts. As long as he continues pitching to contact in this matchup, we will take a plus price on this prop gladly.

New York Mets vs Los Angeles Dodgers

My Pick: Mets Team Total Over 4.5 (-102 at FanDuel)

On Wednesday night, the New York Mets face off with the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the Mets squaring off with a familiar face. Noah Syndergaard will get the start for the Dodgers, who spent much of his career with the Mets. Here, we like the Mets to put up some runs against Syndergaard and the Dodgers, and will take the over on the Mets team total at 4.5.

Syndergaard has really struggled early this season, posting a 5.63 ERA over his first three starts of the season. Opponents of the Dodgers have scored at least eight runs in two of his last three starts. Here, against a Mets lineup that is explosive and looking to bounce back after a shutout last night, Syndergaard will lead the Dodgers pitching staff into a rough night at home.

The Mets might need to score five or more runs just to have a chance at winning this game. That sounds crazy with Max Scherzer on the mound for the Mets tonight, but Scherzer has struggled to find his footing early in the season. He has a 2-1 record, but his ERA is up over 4.00, and the Mets may need to win a high-scoring affair here.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Cincinnati Reds

My Pick: Drew Rasmussen to record the win (+105 at PointsBet)

Our third MLB prop bet for Wednesday is for Drew Rasmussen of the Tampa Bay Rays to record a win against the Cincinnati Reds. Rasmussen is 2-1 on the season so far, winning two of his first three starts. We should see him pick up another win here against a Reds team that the Rays team beat by a 10-0 margin.

Rasmussen had a rough start in his last outing, giving up five runs against the Toronto Blue Jays. But he did not give up a run in either of his last two starts, shutting out the Oakland Athletics and Washington Nationals across 13 combined innings of work. He may not shut out the Reds here, but he will do enough to help the Rays get a victory in this Wednesday matinee in Cincinnati.

Rasmussen should get plenty of run support from his team in this matchup, as has been the norm this season for Rays pitchers. His team has scored at least six runs in two of his first three starts this season, including an 11-run outburst against Oakland in his second start. The Rays lead MLB in runs scored this season by a wide margin, which should help Rasmussen pick up a win as long as he can last five innings.
