MLB Monday with Plenty of Action Coming

The Detroit Tigers may not be having their best season, but Miguel Cabrera is. The first baseman and designated hitter is now a member of the elite 500 home run club, a feat he achieved when he reached the mark against the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday. He is one of only 28 MLB players to have reached 500 and is the only Venezuelan-born player to do so. The Tigers have today off, but there is still plenty of MLB betting action on tap.

Mariners Back-to-back Against the A’s

The Seattle Mariners (66-58) have a short two-game series against the Oakland A’s (70-54), their American League (AL) West rival today. The Mariners just suffered a huge, 15-1 loss at the hands of the Houston Astros on Saturday and had only scored four runs in the first two games of any three-game series while allowing 27. Seattle is third in the West, 7.5 games behind the Astros, who are in first place.

Oakland is second in the West and only 3.5 games behind the Astros. The A’s have lost five of the last seven; however, have a better lineup than the Mariners have tonight. The A’s are getting -130 on the moneyline, which is a good move. The Over/Under is currently 8.5, and taking the Over (-110), with Oakland doing most of the work, makes sense.

Astros and Royals in a Duel

The Kansas City Royals (54-68) start a three-game road series today against the Astros (73-50). The Royals just picked up a 4-2 victory against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday and has won each of the first two games of its interleague series against Chicago. KC has also won five of its last six and is fourth in the AL Central, but a long 17 games behind the Chicago White Sox in first place.

Houston’s latest victory showed why they’re on top and why it will stay there for now. The Astros are getting -235, which doesn’t leave a lot of winnings. The Over/Under at 9 holds a lot more promise, as long as bettors take the Under (-120). Houston has Zack Greinke on the mound, and he is going to give the Royals a hard time.

Wrigley Welcomes the Rockies

Wrigley Field welcomes the Colorado Rockies (57-67) as they take on the Chicago Cubs (54-72). Neither is having a great season and the Rockies are already out of playoff contention. The Cubs have only been mediocre at home and are 22.5 games behind first in the National League (NL) Central standings. Their latest defeat was a 9-1 loss suffered yesterday.

The Cubs are getting -125 on the moneyline, which should be good for a little spending money. Given that neither of these two teams is putting up a lot of runs this year, the Over/Under of 9 seems really high. But, take the Under (-103) and pad the bank a little more for the tougher games.

Yankees Invade Georgia

The New York Yankees (72-52) head down to Georgia and Truist Park to take on the Atlanta Braves (68-56). The Yankees are going into tonight’s game on a nine-game winning streak, although missed a game yesterday because of rain. The Braves also have nine consecutive wins and now have a 5.5 game lead for first place in the NL East.

In Game 1 games in any series, the Yankees have gone 5-1 and the Braves are 6-0 across the last six series. With both of these teams showing significant strength as of late, this is going to be a tougher game than most. The Braves are getting -109 on the moneyline, while the Yankees are getting -101. Still, this one has to go to the Braves. They’re 19-7 against a left-handed starter (lefty Jordan Montgomery starts for the Yankees tonight) and have been a little more resilient lately. The Over/Under is at 9, which is very doable for this pair. Taking the Over at -130 is a good play.
