MLB ARTICLE/CHEAT SHEET
DRAFTKINGS MAIN SLATE (6 GAMES)
STL/MIL- Neither pitcher in this game scares me at all. Both offenses are legit and I expect runs especially in this ball park. Carpenter is my favorite Cardinal leading off. Goldy is in play, but I would rather fade since he will be higher owned since he hit 3 bombs yesterday. Other Cardinals I like are DeJong and Wong. On MIL, a full stack is in play and I like Yelich the most followed by Cain, Shaw, Aguilar, and Moustakas.
CHC/TEX- There are 19 mph winds blowing out in this game which should help the hitters a lot. The Cubs are a top stack of the night. Volquez has not pitched since 2017 so he will be limited and the Rangers bullpen sucks. Give me all the Cubs. I don’t have nearly the same interest in the Tex bats. I actually like Darvish a lot at only 8.8k.
SFG/SDP- The Giants have scored a combined total of 1 run the first 2 games and it came in the ninth inning yesterday. I will continue to fade the Giants bats all year. The Padres are a sneaky stack. Rodriguez was good last season, but the advanced numbers suggest he got a bit lucky. I like Kinsler leading off, Myers is red hot, Machado, and Hosmer.
LAA-OAK Brett Anderson is a massive ground ball pitcher who has been pretty good at limiting damage in OAK. I actually don’t have much interest in the Angels except for Trout. On the A’s I would actually prefer to play Pena against them since he was very good against righties last year and this Oakland team is filled with them Pena also has massive strikeout upside.
BOS-SEA I love the Red Sox stack tonight. Leake is getting older, his velocity is declining, and he has a propensity to give up the long ball. Will Seattle looking like a home run paradise so far this year, it does not look good for Leake. The first 6 Sox are all in play for me. Mariners are probably my favorite sneaky gpp stack today. They have a low total against a good pitcher so no will look their way. However, their lineup is very good and they have been crushing home runs so far this year. I like a Haniger, Santana, Encarnacion, Healy, Beckham 5 man stack.
ARI/LAD- ARI lineup looks very ugly without Goldy and Pollock hitting in the middle of hit. I have no interest in ARI bats against Maeda. Godley will be very good some starts and get blown up in others. The Dodgers lineup is very good so I think they will get to Godley at least a little bit. Pederson leading off, Seager, Muncy, Pollock, and Bellinger all look great.
