Monday might be a lighter slate of games across the MLB but there is still plenty of value across the league in terms of MLB props. Let’s take a look at the best MLB props and MLB player props to make you money on Monday.
Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox highest-scoring game (+400)
The Boston Red Sox have a chance on Monday to be the highest-scoring game by themselves. The Red Sox this season have had games where they scored 16 or 17 runs, and this could be one of those games. Kolby Allard has had issues this season, and this game is going to be no different. Look for the Rangers and Red Sox to be the highest-scoring game. The Boston Red Sox being the highest-scoring team at +450 also is worth a bet.
Jordan Montgomery over 5.5 strikeouts (-120)
Jordan Montgomery is going to have a big game in this one against the Atlanta Braves and that is going to include many strikeouts. In Montgomery’s last start he finished with six strikeouts in 4.2 innings. Look for Montgomery to finish with at least 5.5 strikeouts.
Boston Red Sox over 6.5 runs (+105)
The Boston Red Sox like stated above are going to run up the score, and they are going to run up the score in this game. I think the Red Sox should finish with eight or nine runs which will make this a comfortable win.
Oakland Athletics under 4.5 runs (-125)
The Oakland Athletics are going to struggle to score in this game going against Marco Gonzales. Look for the A’s to struggle to score in this game against Gonzales and finish with only two or three runs.
