April 16 MLB odds: Picks for Cardinals-Cubs, Marlins-Yankees, Astros-Mariners from senior analyst

Monday's major-league schedule features several must-see rivalry matchups. With average Joes and professionals alike lining up to back stars like Kris Bryant, Aaron Judge, Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton, the loaded 11-game slate is drawing plenty of action.

But before you make any picks on any of Monday's intriguing matchups, you need to see what Larry Hartstein has to say.

Hartstein combines a vast network of Vegas sources with an analytical approach to crush the books. And that's exactly what Hartstein has been doing early this season, entering Monday having nailed four straight MLB selections. Anybody following him is building a sizable profit.

Now, he has analyzed every MLB matchup and come up with his three best bets for Monday's slate.

We can tell you Hartstein likes the value of the Cubs (-133) at home against the Cardinals at 7:05 p.m. ET.

"Chicago was blanked by the Braves on Friday and then went down as much as 9-1 to Atlanta on Saturday. But a historic rally gave the Cubs a 14-10 victory in that game before Sunday's contest was postponed. It'll be another freezing night in Chicago, but that's nothing new for the Cubs. Look for them to ride the momentum of the Saturday comeback to another win, this time against a struggling Adam Wainwright (0-2, 5.06 ERA)."

Hartstein has also released two other strong plays, including a money-line selection on the matchup between the Yankees and the Marlins at 6:35 p.m. ET. In the midst of Derek Jeter and Giancarlo Stanton subplots, there's a game to be played, and Hartstein has identified a pitching trend that ultimately determines which side you should back. He's sharing what it is at SportsLine. 

He has also locked in a play for Astros-Mariners, saying there's strong value on one side.
