It’s another great day for baseball betting! Here, we’re taking a look and betting on each of the four games on Monday’s schedule.
Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates – 6:35 PM ET
The Cincinnati Reds are 60-93 heading into tonight’s game. Yesterday, they earned a 2-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers, an impressive feat. Still, they’ll have the 2-3 Chase Anderson on the mound who has an ERA of 5.21. Anderson puts them at a disadvantage as they face the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have a record of 56-97, slightly worse than the Reds. However, they’re starting the 5-5 Roansy Contreras, who has an ERA of 3.68 this season. Look for the Pirates to win this game at home -140.
Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – 7:05 PM ET
The Atlanta Braves have a 95-58 record and are 43-32 on the road this season. On the mound tonight is the 1-3 Bryce Elder, who has an ERA of 3.38 this season. At the plate, the Braves have a team batting average of .254, a strong average. They come in as heavy favorites but are likely the best pick in this game.
The Washington Nationals are 53-99 and have a 24-50 record at home. Considering they’re well under .500 at home, we don’t think that being at home will factor in much. Getting the start on the mound is Cory Abbott, who is 0-3 this season. We’ll take the Braves at -250 to beat the Nationals tonight.
New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays – 7:07 PM ET
With a record of 94-58, the Yankees head to Toronto to face the Blue Jays. Getting the start on the mound tonight is Luis Severino, who has a 3.36 ERA. Although Severino’s record (6-3) and ERA are great, he’s not the best starting pitcher tonight. The Yankees will need a lot of help from their batters as they face Kevin Gausman and the Blue Jays.
Gausman has a record of 12-10 this season with a 3.32 ERA. Over the course of 165.1 innings, he’s thrown 194 strikeouts. Gausman gives the Blue Jays the best chance of winning tonight’s game. They have a team batting average of .261 and can take down the Yankees after winning two in a row. It could be a long shot but we’ll take Toronto over New York in tonight’s game.
Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox – 7:10 PM ET
The final game of the day is between two AL East teams fighting for positioning. The Baltimore Orioles, with a record of 79-73, currently rank fourth in the division. As they head into tonight’s game, they’ll send the 11-11 Jordan Lyles out to the mound. Lyles’ record might not be great but he has an ERA of 4.50. The problem is, the Orioles don’t have a strong batting lineup.
The Boston Red Sox, however, have one of the best batting groups in the league. This season, the Red Sox are hitting .258 as a team, a very impressive average. On the mound, however, is the 0-3 Connor Seabold, who has an ERA of 10.47. This is a tough one to call but we’ll take the Red Sox at home -130.
