Mining the Diamond connected on both its picks yesterday and now it's time to start the week fresh with two more winning MLB picks for Monday.

Rockies (47-31, +18.2 units) vs. Giants (27-51, -26.7 units)

* San Francisco is 14-21 (-9.8 units) in home games this season.

* San Francisco is 5-18 (-14.6 units) in June games this season.

* San Francisco is 12-22 (-11.0 units) against division opponents.

* Colorado is 25-16 (+12.2 units) in road games this season.

* Colorado is 11-5 (+6.8 units) on the road when the total is 8 to 8.5 this season.

* Colorado is 22-14 (+6.8 units) when playing against a team with a losing record.

The Rockies are 10-1 versus the Giants this season and we expect this dominating trend to continue. German Marquez goes for the Rockies and he boasts a 1-0 record with a 1.93 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP in his last three starts. The MLB Odds makers have the wrong favorite in this one and we intend to take full advantage. Let's back the better team with the better pitcher in our MLB picks for Monday night!

Twins (39-34, +7.8 units) vs. Red Sox (41-34, -2.23 units)

* Boston is 7-2 (+3.4 units) as a home favorite of -175 to -250 this season.

* Boston is 22-13 (+3.7 units) in home games this season.

* Boston is 21-17 (+1.6 units) when playing against a team with a winning record

* Minnesota is 16-22 (-2.5 units) when playing on Monday over the last three seasons.

* Minnesota is 78-119 (-16.4 units) when playing against a team with a winning record over the last three seasons.

Chris Sale is on the hill for the Red Sox and that's the main storyline here. The Boston ace has been dazzling this season with a 9-3 mark and a 2.85 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP. His counterpart for Minnesota has been every bit as good but Jose Berrios has not played in Fenway and we believe the Red Sox offense comes alive in this one.
