The 2020 Major League Baseball season is scheduled to begin on March 26 and conclude on September 27, and Vegas sportsbooks are asking sports bettors: How many times will the Astros be hit by a pitch this season? Drew Martin and Minty Bets discuss from the WagerTalk TV Studios.
Per William Hill:
It’s been a turbulent offseason for the Astros, and William Hill’s oddsmakers think the opposition’s payback will be a pitch.
William Hill has released two props regarding how many times the Astros will be hit by a pitch this season. The total opened at 83.5 and those interested can also bet on the exact number of instances that Houston will be plunked-with 81 to 90 leading the way as a +300 favorite.
“The trading team and I are always looking for unique angles that we think will interest sports fans,” William Hill’s Director of Trading Nick Bogdanovich said. “the Astros are the talk of baseball so we wanted to make props that we felt were relevant and timely.”
The 2008 Cleveland Indians set the American League record after they were hit by a pitch a whopping 103 times. And if you think the Astros will shatter that mark, 141 to 150 HBPs offers a 250/1 payout.
