John Hyslop is back to share the pitchers on his radar for today. Here's a look at pitchers you should target on today's MLB slate.

Monday Early MLB Looks: What Starting Pitchers Should Be on Today's Strikeout Watch?

The best way to start the week is to win all of your bets on Monday. Not some, not most, all of them. That's just how great weeks work. Obviously we've got the NBA Finals tonight but we can't forget about MLB too. These guys are going to get us through the summer so we need to show them respect by betting on them. It's the least we can do. The thing is, I'm not looking for just any bet here. Sure the old 3.5 (-130) move is fun to cash but do you know what else is fun to cash? The 6+ (+300) kind of bets. If I'm being honest, these are the only things that really get me going these days. Lucky for us, I figured out a way to go after these things on a daily basis. All we need is the right lineups and we'll be climbing ladders all the way to the moon. It's legitimately the greatest thing a person can do. Especially on a Monday.

Remember, we need to see AT LEAST five of these batters in these lineups when they are released. If that happens, get ready to fire away. Be somebody today.
