The Cincinnati Reds and Minnesota Twins are set to begin the first installment of a two-game series to kick off a new week of action on Monday. Both teams are toward the bottom of their respective divisions but can get hot in an instant. Let’s take a look at the favorable lines at DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the action.

Reds vs. Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Reds -113

Cincinnati is struggling to keep up with the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs in the NL Central but remains one of MLB’s best batting teams. Only five teams can best the Reds’ .248 batting average. That bodes well for their offense against J.A. Happ. The 38-year-old has given up at least four earned runs in six of his last seven outings and has forked up at least one home run in four straight games. His career-worst 6.12 ERA makes Cincinnati a clear favorite.

Player Prop: Jesse Winker O.5 RBI (+172)

Nick Castellanos entered Monday leading MLB in batting average (.344) and hits (89), but Winker edges him out in runs scored and RBI. The Reds’ designated hitter has belted 17 home runs and only seven players have touched home plate more this year. He’s registered 14 RBI through 18 games in June, so banking on him getting another isn’t a reach.
