Monday MLB Free Play: Cincinnati Reds at LA Dodgers

Matt puts his perfect 6-0 MLB free pick record on the line in Monday night’s clash between the Cincinnati Reds and LA Dodgers, with Clayton Kershaw returning to the mound.

Event: (907) Cincinnati Reds at (908) Los Angeles Dodgers
Sport/League: MLB
Date/Time: April 15, 2019 10PM EDT
Play: Cincinnati Reds 1.5 (-148)

I don’t have many systems or anything, but the one thing I like to fade is someone coming off the disabled list to make a start. There’s something to someone having to ramp it up after some time off and Clayton Kershaw is going for the Dodgers. He allowed two runs in six innings in a rehab start in AA so he won’t be completely cold. Who knows how long the southpaw will go so that means a shaky bullpen comes into play. Luis Castillo has been fantastic for the Reds this season. He’s allowed two runs and five hits in starts against the Pirates, Brewers and Marlins. The righty has 25 strikeouts to just eight walks. He beat the Dodgers twice last year holding them to four runs and eight hits in just over 12 innings. The Reds offense is better then their numbers. The Dodgers offense has been hot so that’s a worry but I’ll take a chance with the Reds runline and hope Kershaw is rusty.


Monday MLB + NBA Combo
I’ve got two winners for this Monday with one being in the MLB and the other being in the NBA. It’s a very good price for two potential winners as we take a look at the Royals/White Sox and Nets/Sixers.
