MLB Best Bets: Monday, June 20th

Zach Davies pitching against the Reds

Major League Baseball is headed into Summer and into the sports spotlight. We split our last MLB card exactly a week ago and we’ve already been attacking the league with some decent success so let’s keep the winning going. It’s a nicely sized schedule tonight and three numbers really caught my eye. Check out my MLB Best Bets for this Monday, June 20th.
