Monday’s MLB slate features several big-name pitchers in action, with Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta getting things started when the Cubs take on the Mets. Here’s how bettors can expect these matchups to play out.
Best matchup: Tyler Glasnow vs. Lance Lynn
The Rays and White Sox look like the two best teams in the AL and will both be sending strong pitchers to the mound Monday. Glasnow is Tampa Bay’s ace and will look to keep up his great start while Lynn is 7-1 with a 1.23 ERA for Chicago. This could be a low scoring contest where the pitchers determine the winner.
Sleeper matchup: Alex Manoah vs. Nathan Eovaldi
Eovaldi got crushed by the Astros, but had three straight wins prior to that outing and should bounce back. Manoah is an emerging pitcher for the Blue Jays and had a good game against a potent White Sox offense last time out. These two could get going Monday.
