Monday MLB Bets

Arizona Diamondbacks (-125) vs San Francisco Giants

Zack Godley vs Derek Holland, I’m gonna go with the better starter here. San Francisco has a weird ballpark that is both pitcher and hitter friendly. The offense of the Diamondbacks has faced some of the best pitchers in baseball this season and they’re still off to a hot start at 7-2. I think their hot streak continues tonight against the “Dutch Oven” and the Giants. Both teams are over performing at this point in the season, so this should be a good game. The Giants have hit well off of Godley, but it’s a small sample size to this point. Both teams are going to try and push their starters as far as they can go to help out their bullpens, especially the Giants who lost a game in extra innings on Sunday. Expect a low-scoring win by the D-Backs.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Baltimore Orioles (-120)

Dylan Bundy pitched great against the Astros and JA Happ has been pretty inconsistent throughout his career. The Orioles just took 3/4 against the Yankees and are riding the high of defeating a clearly more talented team. The Jays offense has been inconsistent, but saw success against the Rangers this past weekend. The Orioles are going to look to reverse their fortunes at home in this one as they started out the season 1-2 at home. Camden Yards is another weird ballpark that could be either a pitchers park or a hitters park depending on who is on the bump. I think Dylan Bundy will have success tonight against an inconsistent Jays offense.

Seattle Mariners (-110) vs Kansas City Royals

The Royals have not played well this season and I don’t expect it to change tonight. They’re coming home after a long, cold road trip on which they struggled. I don’t know much about either of these pitchers, but I’m picking this game based on the bullpens. I think the Mariners have more depth and better pitchers coming out of their bullpen than the Royals do. This will probably be one of the lowering scoring games of the day, but I think the Mariners should win a tight one.
