Here are two attractive underdog picks with some in-depth analysis in which we think that you will profit from. It's our MLB Picks of the Day for Monday and your chance at easy money.

Coming off of a perfect set of Sunday night baseball games, we come into the new week, with a new set of MLB matchups, looking to keep the momentum going:

Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Dodgers
Just when you think that the Los Angeles Dodgers are about to fall apart, they start creeping up on the San Francisco Giants for the division lead in the National League West Division. After winnning 3 straight games, the Dodgers are 31-27 and just 3.5 games behind the Giants with plenty of baseball to go.

Tonight, the Dodgers host a Colorado Rockies team (25-31) who are 4-10 in their last 14 games. However, Colorado does come into this game with a bit of confidence as they faced a real poor pitcher on the Padres rotation and took advantage of him and the Pads at Petco Park with a 10-3 victory. Considering that Coors Field is where Colorado does most of their damage, they've been very competitive on the road, just 1 game under .500. This is a game that the Dodgers should win with decent MLB Odds, but this game should be rather competitive if the Rockies offense shows up.


 

Tyler Chatwood
One player that can't be ignored in this game is Colorado starting pitcher, Tyler Chatwood (6-4, 2.99). You would think that pitching in Coors Field would make a Colorado pitcher's numbers look unappealing, but Chatwood has managed to be the exception to the issue. He's been even better on the road and nearly perfect.

In 33 2/3 innings on the road, Chatwood has allowed a mere 2 earned runs while strinking out 23 batters and walking just 7 batters. His ERA on the road is an amazing 0.53 and this is a major concern for the Dodgers. Chatwood is coming off of a poor outing at Coors Field against the lowly Cincinnati Reds but his road numbers speak volumes and might be a good reason to choose the underdog with value here.

 

Beating Up On the Braves
I told the readers that the Dodgers have won their last 3 games and they won by a collective total of 20-8, but it was against the lowly Atlanta Braves. A victory against the Braves sometimes doesn't feel like an actual victory and they have something to prove in this game.

 

Corey Seager
While Adrian Gonzalez is considered the star on the Dodgers, the real emerging star is shortstop, Corey Seager. Seager has a ton of up side at just 22 years old. He's coming off of a 2 home run game against the Braves and is hitting .286 with 14 HR and 35 RBI. His splits look awesome. Against Colorado, he's 5 for 12 with a double, a triple, and 1 HR and 5 RBI. In the last week, Seager is 10 for his last 27 and 6 out of those 10 hits are for home runs along with 11 RBI. This kid is red hot.

The Dodgers would be the MLB Picks, but there's no denying Chatwood's excellence on the road. Take the value.

Los Angeles Angels at New York Yankees
The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels share identical records at 26-30. Both teams have been very inconsistent and in this matchup, it will come down to "Will the Angels be able to be effective against Masahiro Tanaka?" Tanaka has had a very solid season at 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA and had the advantage in a starting pitching matchup against Matt Shoemaker (3-6, 5.50 ERA).

The Angels job in this game will be to be effective off of Tanaka before the "Big 3" of Betances, Miller, and Chapman take over in the 7th inning in beyond as this trio is virtually unhittable and the best bullpen in baseball. This will be the key to the game for L.A. as they face a very weak Yankees offense.

Tanaka has pitched very well in his last 3 outings, allowing just 2 runs in 20 innings pitched and is 2-1 in these games because the Yankees couldn't provide him with run support. Tanaka has also not faired well at home with a 4.55 ERA. He's played well as of late but he has been known to give up early game runs and put the Yankees behind. I'm not sold on Tanaka depsite his overall record.

 

I'm Coming Home
Even though he's from Vineland, New Jersey, which is over 100 miles aways from Yankee Stadium, this is like a return home for the best hitter and future of baseball in Mike Trout. Trout especially "get's up" for games like this as he has family in the stands that make the long trek to the Bronx.

Along with Yunel Escobar (.311) and Kole Calhoun (6 HR, 29 RBI, .306 BA) Trout has not disappointed. The Angels are coming off of a series win over a good Pittsburgh Pirates team and I can see Trout doing some damage at Yankee Stadium despite being a right handed hitter in a ballpark that favors lefties.

For the season, Trout is hitting .311 with 12 HR and 41 RBI and on the road he's hitting .337 with 5 HR and 19 RBI. His glove alone can save the Angels runs. Look for the the future of baseball in Mike Trout and the Angels to be a good value pick against a pitcher that pitches poorly at home and can be jumped on early.
