Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Miami Marlins

Dodgers vs. Marlins: What You Should Know 

The Marlins are the National League version of the Oakland A’s, and by that I mean they are terrible offensively and you should be betting most starting pitchers when they face Miami

One note about the Los Angeles lineup: Former AL MVP Mookie Betts (.281, 31 HRs, 69 RBIs) will get tonight off simply as a pre-planned rest day. Kinda interesting timing to do it as he’s red hot right now after going 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBIs in Sunday’s win.

Dodgers' Prop Bet: Tony Gonsolin 

  • Over/Under 2.5 Earned Runs Allowed 
  • To Record A Win 

Right-hander Tony Gonsolin (16-1, 2.10 ERA) has been the surprise ace of the Dodgers this season.

He is a Cy Young contender, currently a +800 second-favorite at the top-rated sportsbooks behind the Marlins’ Sandy Alcantara, who beat the Dodgers on Saturday in a complete-game six-hitter. 

Gonsolin has allowed just 76 hits in 128.1 innings, and in August he has a 0.76 ERA and is holding opponents to a .127 (10-for-79) average.

Dodgers' Prop Bet: Freddie Freeman 

  • Over/Under 1.5 Total Bases 

We’ll go with Freddie Freeman from the Dodgers for our hitting prop as the lefty is 9-for-28 career off Lopez with 4 doubles.

Freeman is on a five-game hitting streak as well with multiple hits in four of those. He might catch Paul Goldschmidt for the MLB batting title.

Chicago Cubs vs. Toronto Blue Jays 

Monday, August 29, 2022 - 07:07 PM EDT at Rogers Centre

Cubs vs. Blue Jays: What You Should Know 

I’m pretty shocked that the Blue Jays were just swept at home over the weekend by the not-very-good Los Angeles Angels. If the Jays miss the playoffs by a game or something, remember that. It was the first time Toronto had been swept at home this year.  

Do think the Jays bounce back and rout the Cubs tonight as they face rookie Javier Assad? Blue Jays outfielder George Springer is on a 12-game hitting streak, and I believe that gets extended. He’s hitting nearly .470 over that stretch with five extra-base hits and 10 RBIs.  


Blue Jays' Prop Bet: Jose Berrios 

  • Over/Under 2.5 Earned Runs Allowed 
  • To Record A Win 

It’s Jose Berrios on the bump for Toronto. He has been much better at home (6-1, 4.10 ERA) than on the road (3-4, 6.48 ERA).

Berrios has allowed only 3 earned runs combined in his past two starts and those came against the Red Sox and Yankees, both much better lineups than the Cubs have.

Berrios has faced the Cubs twice in his career, but not since 2020 as a member of the Twins. 

MLB Prop Pick: Berrios Under 2.5 Earned Runs Allowed (-145) at BetOnline

Cubs' Prop Bet: Franmil Reyes 

  • Over/Under 1.5 Total Bases 

I do like one Cubs hitter tonight and that’s designated hitter Franmil Reyes, who is 7-for-14 career off Berrios – although those at-bats came when Reyes was with Cleveland. 

The Cubs picked him up off waivers and it has been a wise move as Reyes is hitting .280 with 3 homers and 10 RBIs in 19 games and perhaps convinced the team to keep him for next season. 

MLB Prop Pick: Reyes Over 1.5 Total Bases (+140) at BetOnline
