Odds as of November 2nd at DraftKings.
Fried a Virtual Over Lock in Strikeout Totals
Braves left-hander Max Fried has been their best pitcher all season long. He can close out the World Series with a win Tuesday and give Atlanta its first World Series title since 1995.
Before he gets to that stage, though, Fried should be long past the over on his 3.5 strikeout total for Game 6 of the World Series. Fried has bettered that number in three of his four postseason starts.
Braves' Max Fried: "Any time you don't perform the way that you want, you don't win, you want to go back out there and redeem yourself. I'm ready to go out there and leave it all on the field. It's probably going to be my last outing of the year, so there's nothing to hold back."

Fried fanned six Astros while taking the loss in Game 2 of the World Series. He also went over 3.5 strikeouts in each of his last 21 regular-season starts and 25 of 28 overall.
The strikeout total for Astros right-hander Luis Garcia is also set at 3.5. In his case, however, this number is much more in flux. And he’ll be starting Game 6 on just three day’s rest.
Garcia has gone over that number in each of his last two appearances. He rung up six Atlanta batters while suffering the loss in Game 3 of this series. But he’s 2-2 on that total through four postseason trips to the mound.
Astros starter Luis Garcia said he has no concerns about pitching Game 6 on short rest. "I'm just gonna try do the best job I can do and help the team."

Going back to the regular season, Garcia failed to better 3.5 strikeouts in three of his last four appearances. Prior to that, though, he posted more than 3.5 strikeouts in 21 consecutive stints on the bump.
Picks: Max Fried over 3.5 strikeouts (-155); Luis Garcia under 3.5 strikeouts (+130)
Astros’ Big Bats Hit Fried
First baseman Yuli Gurriel (.333), outfielder Michael Brantley (.308), outfielder Kyle Tucker (.293) and shortstop Carlos Correa (.286) are Houston’s top hitters during postseason play. Each of them got their knocks in against Fried during Game 2.
Tucker and Gurriel were both 1-for-2 (.500). Brantley was 1-for-3 (.333) with an RBI. Correa was also 1-for-3. As well, second baseman Jose Altuve, batting just .206 for the playoffs, got a hit in three trips when facing Fried for the first time.

On the Atlanta side of the ledger, third baseman Austin Riley was the one slashing for the Braves against Garcia in Game 3. He smacked a double and drove in a run in two plate appearances against the Astros righty in Game 3.
First baseman Freddie Freeman went 1-for-3 (.333) against Garcia.
Picks: Freddie Freeman +0.5 hits (-225); Michael Brantley +0.5 RBI (+240); Austin Riley +0.5 RBI (+180)
