Monday is a slower day in the MLB. We have just seven games, including the Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Mets matchup at 7:10pm ET. This game is at Citi Field in Queens, New York.

In this betting preview, I’ll be sharing my top MLB picks and predictions for the Reds vs. Mets matchup on Monday, August 8. I found a sharp betting pick using the tools on OddsJam.

The NY Mets are massive moneyline favorites on Monday. As seen on the OddsJam MLB Odds Screen, the Mets are best offered at -275 odds on DraftKings sportsbook. That’s pretty heavy juice for an MLB moneyline. Regardless, if you want to bet on the Mets moneyline for August 8, then you should be betting on DraftKings if you have this bookmaker available in your location.

The Reds are best offered at +245 odds on FanDuel. It’s very important to line shop and get the best possible odds as a sports bettor. Line shopping and finding value is the core of Positive EV betting, which is the most profitable form of sports betting.

The total is currently set at over/under 8.5 and juiced towards the over. On FanDuel sportsbook, the over 8.5 total runs is set at -118 odds. The under 8.5 is at -104. The Mets are -1.5 favorites on the run line at -130 odds. Betting markets are clearly expecting a blowout from the Mets.

I ended up finding an awesome play from the OddsJam Positive EV Betting Tool. I’m on the Mets -3 run line at +160 odds on Caesars sportsbook. There’s a ton of value at +160 odds, and my betslip for 8/8/22 can be seen above. I think that this is one of the best early MLB picks for Monday.
