Game 4 of the ALCS between the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox will begin on Tuesday at 8:08 p.m. ET on FS1. The Red Sox now lead the series 2-1, after defeating the Astros 12-3 in Game 3 on Monday night.

Zack Greinke will be on the mound for the Astros and the Red Sox will give the ball to Nick Pivetta. Below we are going to go over some of our favorite player props for Monday’s ALCS Game 4, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Zack Greinke over 11.5 total outs (+200)

After another short outing from an Astros starting pitcher in Game 3, manager Dusty Baker needs Greinke to at least get into the fourth or fifth inning to save the bullpen. The last two times we saw Greinke on the mound was in relief appearances for Houston.

However, the 37-year-old pitcher has gone over 11.5 total outs recorded in his last five starts. This should be great news for both Astros fans and Baker as Monday’s starter Jose Urquidy could not make it out of the second inning. With +200 odds we do not have much to lose in this scenario, but everything to gain if this hits tonight.

Yuli Gurriel over 1.5 hits (+200)

For the Astros to stave off elimination heading into Game 5, they’ll need their sleepy offense to wake up asap. One player, who has been a consistent hitter in their lineup this season and in the postseason is first baseman Yuli Gurriel.

This season, Gurriel hit .319 with 15 HRs and 81 RBI. The 37-year-old infielder has carried that over to the postseason, where he is hitting .296 with a home run and five RBI. In the Astros’ seven playoff games, Gurriel has registered at least one hit in five games. But out of those five games, he’s has gone over 1.5 hits three times, including Game 3 where he went 2-for-3.
