Monday is a lighter slate of MLB games with nine games taking place. Let’s take a look at each of the games, and give a free MLB pick to help make your day a winning one.
Atlanta Braves at New York Mets - Game 1
The Atlanta Braves and New York Mets are playing a doubleheader on Monday, so this game is only seven innings long. Runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Marcus Stroman has been strong this season, and Kyle Muller sits with an ERA of 3.20. Both pitchers are going to lock down in this game, and the under is going to cash.
Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies
There are going to be plenty of runs scored in this game by both teams. These are both offenses that at times are inconsistent, but they will both run up the score in this game. Joe Ross and Spencer Howard both can’t be trusted, and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over.
Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox had a big comeback late against the New York Yankees on Sunday, while the Toronto Blue Jays lost by a run to the New York Mets. The Red Sox’s offense is going to run up the score in this game, and that will be the difference, as they cruise to an important victory. Back the Red Sox on the run line.
Play: Red Sox -1.5
Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs
Wade Miley has made me a lot of money this season, and I am not going away from him in this game. In the last game against the Mets, Miley went 6.1 innings giving up two runs. The Reds aren’t going to give him a whole lot of run support this season, but it’s going to be enough for the Reds to win.
Play: Reds ML
Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals
The White Sox played on Sunday night football and then has to hop on a flight to Kansas City. Mike Minor is coming off one of his better starts of the season against the Milwaukee Brewers giving five hits and two runs. Look for the Royals to give him some run support, and the Royals will win this game.
Play: Royals ML
Detroit Tigers at Minnesota Twins
The Tigers had some issues over the weekend against the Royals, but they are going to get back on the right track in this game. Matt Manning has pitched better as of late, including two starts ago against the Twins. Manning went five innings giving up two runs. Look for the Tigers to win this game.
Play: Tigers ML
Atlanta Braves at New York Mets - Game 2
With this being Game 2, and some questions about who will be getting the start for the Mets, this is a game I would stay away from.
Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Angels
All eyes will be on this game on Monday night as Shohei Ohtani is going to get the start for the Los Angeles Angels. Even though Ohtani is on the mound, I think this is a good chance to back the Rockies. The Rockies' offense has been inconsistent, but I don’t trust Ohtani to get it done in this game. Don't bet it big, but the Rockies are the play.
Play: Rockies ML
Houston Astros at Seattle Mariners
Runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Luis Garcia gets the start for the Astros, and he currently sits with an ERA of 2.86. The Mariners offense isn’t elite, and the under is going to cash. Back the under.
