Strasburg odds on everything

Bodog just released odds on everything Stephen Strasburg will do on Tuesday. I'm omitting the over-under on the number of towels he uses in his post-game shower, the over-under on his water intake, and the specific odds on how many sunflower seeds he will consume (132 seeds is the favorite at 75-2). But I've included everything else, including this quote from Bodog sportsbook manager Richard Gardner.

"We are as excited about it as is the rest of the baseball world," Gardner said. "We thought we would throw up a bunch of props to see what the bettors think since this is the biggest first start of any pitcher in a long, long time."

The Vegas Watch blog listed some Strasburg betting recommendations, but that was before this latest glut of possibilities. Here's my recommendation: Bet his first pitch is a strike, his first result is a groundout, he lasts less than six innings and throws fewer than 90.5 pitches, and he eats three celery sticks and a peanut butter sandwich in the clubhouse.
