It’s a Monday and that means it’s time to head back to the grind of Major League Baseball with the daily article. Hopefully you had a Sunday Funday without me and I also hope you checked out The Run Line with myself and host Ben Wilson, as we talked about a lot of baseball betting news and notes (HOUR 1 | HOUR 2).

Nine games are on the betting board for Monday and not a single day game is in sight, which is quite a surprise. We’ve got a few good pitching matchups and some angles I like tonight, so let’s get into the action.

Yesterday’s Recap

Dodgers/Braves: It was a tough weekend for the Braves. They dropped two of three to the Dodgers and also lost Ronald Acuna Jr. indefinitely on Saturday. They also had plenty of emotional moments to celebrate Freddie Freeman, which Clayton Kershaw seemingly took offense to

Maybe as somebody who moved away from home for the first time 10 months ago, I just get it. I thought it was an ignorant comment from Kershaw, who has spent his entire career with the Dodgers and couldn’t possibly understand where Freeman, who was drafted at 18 and spent 14 years in the Braves organization, is coming from. I’m not sure if it was some projection or not, as the Dodgers are only 12-10 in June, but, the Dodgers rallied for Sunday’s win after getting shut out for eight innings and still remain atop the NL West.

Meanwhile, the story remains the same for Atlanta. They’ll bludgeon pitchers that can’t strike them out or generate swing and miss, while struggling against those that can.

Cubs/Cardinals: It was a weekend full of injuries. Jack Flaherty left his start early for the Cardinals with shoulder stiffness, leaving the bullpen to shoulder a heavy load. The pen is missing Genesis Cabrera, who is now on the COVID list. This is not a deep Cardinals pen, which we saw yesterday and have seen in other recent games. The Cubs actually took two of three here and are something of a positive regression team.

Reds/Giants: The Reds actually took two of three from the Giants in the Bay Area, as San Francisco looked tired in this series. They’ve had one off day since June 6 and the bullpen has been forced to carry a heavy load. Monday’s off day should be a godsend for that group.

On the Reds side, they’ve got something in Graham Ashcraft, who was terrific on Friday, and Tyler Mahle, who continued his recent surge with a strong effort on Sunday. Since allowing eight runs to the Cubs on a windy May 24 day, Mahle has a 2.45 ERA with a 2.83 FIP in his last six starts.
