We have a 12-pack of games in the majors on Monday, beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET with the Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Indians. There are a lot good matchups happening across the league that will feature a ton of betting implications.

With it being an NFL Sunday yesterday, we only had one best bet, but thankfully it went our way. Our lone play was San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani over 4.5 strikeouts (+105) against the Atlanta Braves. The last time we played DeSclafani’s strikeout prop at plus-money, it did not workout well for us. However, the veteran pitcher posted six strikeouts in 6.0 IP and also picked up the loss in the Giants’ 3-0 defeat.

Here we’re going to be tracking all the best MLB picks based on the odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Monday’s baseball action.
