Fixture: San Diego Padres @ Miami Marlins

Date & Time: Monday, August 15, 6:40 p.m. EDT

Miami ranks top 10 in the MLB in strikeout rate, so look for Musgrove to rack up the Ks in the series opener.

Brewers' starter Freddy Peralta is just coming back from injury, but he had a flyball rate of 32.4% last year. Betts will also be playing in a park that benefits hitters more so than it does pitchers, so look for him to get on and score tonight.

MLB Player Prop #3: Pick: Ian Happ Over 1.5 Total Bases (+148)

Washington Nationals vs. Chicago Cubs Match Details

Fixture: Chicago Cubs @ Washington Nationals

Date & Time: Monday, August 15, 7:05 p.m. EDT

Venue: Nationals Park, Washington, D.C.

Ian Happ hits for a lot of power pitchers who throw a lot of breaking balls. Josiah Gray, the Nationals' starter tonight, throws his slider 29% of the time and his curveball 25%. Josiah Gray has had an up-and-down year, and recently he's allowed four or more earned runs in four of his previous seven starts. Look for Happ to have a solid game from the three-spot in the Cubs' order.
