Monday only has five MLB games taking place, but there is still plenty of value with MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props and MLB player props to make your night a winning one.
Milwaukee Brewers to win the series (-150)
I don’t love the -150 that has to be laid, but that is probably lower than any game in this series in terms of the number that is going to need to be laid. The Brewers have the big pitching advantage, and with the offense of the Cubs, this easily could be a sweep. Back the Brewers to win this series.
Luis Castillo over 6.5 strikeouts (-110)
Luis Castillo is going to have a big game in this one. The Cleveland Indians have all kinds of issues right now, and striking out is one of them. Look for Castillo to have no issues early in this game, and he will finish with at least nine strikeouts.
Milwaukee Brewers -4.5 (+250)
The Milwaukee Brewers are going to win against the Chicago Cubs in blowout fashion. On the mound for the Cubs is Alec Mills who has been up and down this season, but any runs he gives up are going to make this a blowout. I don’t see the Cubs scoring more than a run against Freddy Perelta. Back the Brewers -4.5
Miami Marlins -1 (+310)
The Miami Marlins have a great chance to pull the upset on Monday, and this is a value play taking them -1. Zach Thompson has been strong for the Marlins, and I expect the Padres are going to struggle to score in this game. Back the Marlins -1.
