Tonight’s Major League Baseball slate may not feature a ton of games, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t favorable MLB player props over at Underdog Fantasy for us to target. When looking at tonight's MLB Vegas odds and some MLB betting lines, the New York Mets have the second-highest implied run total for the evening. Justin Dunn is making his debut for the Cincinnati Reds after posting a 6.92 ERA at Triple-A this season. Meanwhile, Francisco Lindor is one of the hottest hitters in baseball at the moment and he should be the catalyst for the Mets’ hit parade tonight. The Mets are also likely to be a top MLB DFS stack and Lindor will be a great option in many daily fantasy baseball lineups and MLB player props. Plus, we’ll head to Oakland where Athletics starter Cole Irvin will look to continue his breakout campaign this evening against the struggling Los Angeles Angels. If you want to add more MLB player props to increase your multiplier this evening, check out the wealth of MLB daily fantasy data we have on today’s lineup page, as well as our MLB daily projections. Don't forget to check out the latest MLB weather report too. Without further ado, here are my favorite MLB player props over on Underdog Fantasy for Monday, August 8.



MLB Player Props Underdog Fantasy August 8

Francisco LindorOVER 8.0 Fantasy Points

Justin Dunn had a 6.92 ERA and 1.38 HR/9 in seven starts at Cincinnati’s Triple-A affiliate this year, and tonight’s start will be his first donning the Reds' threads. Dunn has 25 big league starts under his belt, and he’s posted a 1.40 HR/9 and 3.94 ERA (5.61 FIP) in his career. Lefties had more success in past years against Dunn, and Lindor is my favorite bat against him tonight. He’s hitting righties at a .281 clip with an .846 OPS on the year. Lindor is also white-hot at the moment, hitting .417 with a .583 slugging percentage over his last seven games. He’s hit safely in 14 of his last 15 contests with seven multi-hit efforts during this hot streak. The New York Mets' star middle infielder should continue his excellent run tonight against Dunn and the Cincinnati Reds.

Cole IrvinOVER 18.5 Pitching Outs

Over the last two weeks, the Angels, yes the Angels, have the eighth-lowest strikeout rate against left-handed pitchers. However, during that span, they have the third-lowest batting average, fourth-lowest BABIP, ninth-lowest wOBA, and ninth-lowest wRC+. This game is being played in Oakland, and Irvin has a 1.73 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and .222 wOBA allowed in his home park this season. Over his last five home starts, he’s surpassed this line four times, including doing so in far tougher matchups against Toronto and Houston.
