ANALYSIS

Monday's MLB Best Bets: Aaron Civale, Noah Syndergaard, and the Strikeout Watch List

There's only one way I like to start the week and that's with a ladder to the moon. Pretty soon we'll have Monday Night Football to work with but for now, it's baseball. That's fine with me. The pitcher K-prop is the way to ladder in my opinion so all we have to do is find the weak lineups and lay down the law. Lucky for us, we've got two teams on the docket that whiff like it's their job. Opposing them are two guys that can get after it a little if they're facing the right guys. We already know they are covering their standard line. Now, all we have to figure out is how high the ladder will go. All we have to do is hit one and we'll be swimming in cash. Feels fun to me.

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. If we don't see at least five of these names in each lineup, walk away. We'll find something better. Also, don't forget to be somebody today.
