The St. Louis Cardinals will visit the Chicago White Sox on Monday in an interleague matchup. Both teams sit atop their respective divisions and have secured 26 wins, so this could be a close game. Let’s go over the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Cardinals vs. White Sox, 8:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Moneyline pick: White Sox -190

Chicago is riding a three-game losing streak and hasn’t had a ton of success against St. Louis lately, but there’s a good chance it’ll get the job done on Monday. The White Sox are 2-7 straight up against the Cardinals over their last nine matchups against them, but Lance Lynn is 4-1 this season, and Chicago is 4-3 when favored on the moneyline on days he starts. The White Sox have superior pitching and batting, as their fourth-ranked batting average (.254) is much better than the Cardinals’ (.233). Chicago is an impressive 14-8 at home while St. Louis is 11-10 on the road. I’m rolling with the hosts.

Player Prop: Tim Anderson O1.5 hits (+165)

Anderson will get plenty of chances to get a pair of base hits as Chicago’s leadoff batter and has thrived on his home turf. The shortstop is batting .333 at Guaranteed Rate field and has notched seven multi-hit games in 16 appearances there this year. Given that he’s recorded more than one hit in nearly half of his home games, this seems like an enticing plus-money prop.
