Best Baseball Bets for Monday, August 17, 2020.

Yesterday, my bets went 1-2.

Here are my picks for today:

Chicago Cubs -175 against the St Louis Cardinals

Yu Darvish has been solid this season (3-1, 1.88 ERA). Daniel Ponce de Leon has an ERA of almost 7. The Cubs offense has been up and down as of late, but look to get things on track against a pitcher with a WHIP of 1.25.

Oakland A's -150 against the Arizona Diamondbacks

Frankie Montas has been great to start this season while Luke Weaver is 0-3 with an ERA over 11. The A's have won 4 of their last 5 games.

Kansas City Royals/Cincinnati Reds under 8.5 runs

Trevor Bauer and Brad Keller both have ERAs under 1. The Royals offense has cooled off, averaging 2 runs per game in their last 4 games.

Bonus: NBA Playoff Bets

Milwaukee Bucks -12 against the Orlando Magic

This line could be 20 and I would still take the Bucks. The best team in the NBA with the MVP taking on a .500 Magic team.
