MLB Picks and Props for Today: Monday, Aug. 7

Miami Marlins vs. Cincinnati Reds

đŸ”„ Player Props: Jorge Soler Over 0.5 Home Runs (+220 FanDuel), Jake Burger Over 0.5 Home Runs (+285 FanDuel) đŸ”„

After comparing odds from multiple sites, these two players offer the best chances for home runs. Soler and Burger have been dominating left-handed pitchers this season, combining for 20 home runs in just 197 plate appearances. Brandon Williamson, the Reds' pitcher, has struggled against right-handed hitters, making this a promising matchup for both Soler and Burger. For less risk, consider their over-0.5 RBI odds on DraftKings: Soler (+105) and Burger (+125).

Kansas City Royals vs. Boston Red Sox

đŸ”„ Team Prop: Boston Red Sox Over 2.5 Team Runs 1st 5 Innings (-140 DraftKings) đŸ”„

The Red Sox have been strong at home against southpaws, boasting a .354 wOBA, the fifth-best in MLB. Cole Ragans' performance on the road has been lackluster, and the Red Sox lineup is likely to capitalize early. Keep an eye on Jarren Duran's props, as he has a stellar .965 OPS at home this season.

San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Angels

đŸ”„ Money Line: San Francisco Giants (-120 DraftKings) đŸ”„

Initially tempted by the Angels' lineup, the numbers revealed that Logan Webb struggles on the road. Thus, the Giants hold the advantage. Webb has limited tonight's expected Angels starters to a .541 OPS in a small sample. On the other hand, Patrick Sandoval has struggled against the Giants' lineup, particularly J.D. Davis, AJ Pollock, Austin Slater, and Wilmer Flores, who have a combined 7-for-17 record against him, including four home runs. The Giants look promising, and the line may shift closer to even as the day progresses.

Recap of Best MLB Bets Today:

  1. Jorge Soler Over 0.5 Home Runs (+220 FanDuel), Jake Burger Over 0.5 Home Runs (+285 FanDuel)

  2. Boston Red Sox Over 2.5 Team Runs 1st 5 Innings (-140 DraftKings)
