Burn City Best Bets: NLCS Game Six – Prize Picks Edition

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Joe Mantiply (35) throws a pitch in the eighth inning against the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 5 of the NLCS of the 2023 MLB playoffs at Chase Field on Oct. 21, 2032, in Phoenix, AZ. The Phillies beat the Diamondbacks 6-1, giving Philadelphia the overall lead of 3-2 in the NLCS playoffs.

Pitcher Props

If you have used prize picks before, you should know that there are no game lines. Well, there is one, the NRFI. The NRFI is an infamous bet, and with the strength of the Phillies top half of their lineup, I would stay away from it. Diamondbacks fans have seen it a couple times this series, the Schwarmbomb, is why I don’t recommend playing the NRFI. As far as pitcher props go, I love Kelly and Nola over 11.0 strikeouts combo. We played this bet last time these two faced off and they soared on the over. Which was for game two in Philly. Aaron Nola over 4.0 hits allowed is another bet I like. The Diamondbacks are scrappy and find a way to grab hits. Despite Wheeler’s gem in game five the Diamondbacks still grabbed over 4 hits against him.

Hitter Props

Alek Thomas is featured in the starting lineup tonight due to back-to-back games where he left the yard. Thomas has a total bases line set at just 0.5 tonight and I love the over. The young outfielder is clearly seeing the baseball very well right now. This may be strictly a feel bet, but I’m riding with Thomas’s hot bat. A Diamondback who I mentioned in the DraftKings article is making an appearance in this one. Geraldo Perdomo is swinging the bat so well in this series. In game five he manufactured two hits against Zach Wheeler who for the better part of the game, looked untouchable. Perdomo has a hits + runs + RBIs line set at just 0.5 and I love the over.
