Spencer Strider Over 9 Strikeouts

Spencer Strider possesses an impressive strikeout ability that sets him apart from other pitchers. His repertoire includes a combination of electric stuff, pinpoint accuracy, and deceptive pitches, making it challenging for opposing batters to square up against him.

One of Strider’s greatest strengths is his arsenal of devastating breaking pitches. With a sharp curveball and a slider, he possesses the ability to keep batters off balance and induce swings and misses. Strider’s ability to locate these breaking pitches effectively allows him to exploit the weaknesses of opposing batters, leading to a higher number of strikeouts.

The Philadelphia Phillies have shown a tendency to struggle against pitchers who can consistently deliver high-velocity pitches. Strider’s fastball routinely touches the upper 90s, accompanied by excellent command and movement. This combination of velocity and precision could prove to be a significant challenge for the Phillies’ lineup, resulting in an increased likelihood of strikeouts for Strider.

Strider is having a stellar season with a 2.97 ERA and 97 strikeouts already this early in the season. He recorded 11 strikeouts in his last outing against the Dodgers and recorded 12 and 10 strikeouts in his previous starts against the Orioles and Blue Jays. Strider is averaging 6 IP per outing, so this gives him ample opportunity to hit this 9 strikeout line.

We’re on the over tonight for 9 strikeouts.
