Burn City Best Bets: World Series Game One – Prize Picks Edition

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas awaits the batting cage during practice at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on Oct. 26, 2023, ahead of their World Series matchup against the Texas Rangers.

After looking at DraftKings, we’re looking at Prize Picks to see what they have to offer for the World Series opener. I will also remind you, on Prize Picks, play must be parlayed together. So, pick your favorites and create a parlay.

Game Lines

Prize Picks does not offer any money lines pr spreads. On Prize Picks the game lines are very limited. The only game line that is available is runs allowed in the first inning. Now the NRFI (no runs first inning) is such an infamous bet. For valid reasons too. However, with the quality of pitchers on the mound tonight, I like the NRFI. It’s game one, I expect both teams to be getting a feel on one another. Plus, Arizona plays extremely good defense, and so do the Rangers.

Pitcher Props

Just like DraftKings, Prize Picks has Zac Gallen’s strikeouts line set at 4.5 and I love the over. Last time Gallen faced the Ranger in August he punched out 11 hitters in six innings of work. Gallen struggled against the Phillies, but I expect him to bounce back in this series in his ace form. I also love Gallen and Eovaldi combo strikeouts over 9.5. Eovaldi has been pitching extremely well throughout the playoffs, and when Gallen is on he sits down hitters left and right. I also like Eovaldi over 4.5 hits allowed against the Diamondbacks. This Diamondbacks offense is very chippy and always finds a way to grab base hits. In game seven against the Phillies, Arizona recorded six hits against a very good Ranger Suarez.

Hitter Props

Prize Picks has a couple hits + runs + RBIs plays that I like. Firstly, I love Ketel Marte over 1.5 on that prop. Marte is coming off of an NLCS MVP performance and has been so good for the Diamondbacks in the playoffs. I think he will step up in a big way this World Series. Another player that also has the same prop is Corbin Carroll. After struggling in the NLC for the first six games, Carroll really turned it on in game seven. When Corbin Carroll gets hot, he stays hot. I also like Gabriel Moreno over 5.5 hitter fantasy score. I’m rocking with the Diamondbacks holy trinity in game one. Moreno has evolved into a great all-around catcher, and I expect him to play well offensively tonight.
