Choosing between the 5 elite pitchers, JACOB DE GROM, BLAKE SNELL, MAX SCHERZER, GERRIT COLE
and COLE HAMELS
is no easy task tonight. They are all priced at 10k+ on Draftkings – Cole and Hamels look to be in potentially the best spots tonight. Hamels is in a great spot against a Miami offense that struggled for power and strikes out 23% of the time. Snell is ab elite leftie and has an excellent record pitching at home but has the low average innings pitched from the 5. Scherzer is in a tricky spot against a Milwaukee team with a lot of power while DeGrom may struggle to get run support. Gerrit Cole is the one I favour against Kansas City and they have a +2.9 Run advantage tonight. CC SABATHIA
is of interest of those a little further down the pricing and I'll probably mix and match these 3.
For Batters I really like MOOKIE BETTS who can take advantage of John Means in a good spot. MICHAEL CHAVIS, J.D. MARTINEZ and XANDER BOGAERTS appeal to complete a 4-man Boston stack.
I also like the Chicago Cubs batters in a good matchup against Sandy Alcantara, in particular JAVIER BAEZ, KRIS BRYANT and ANTHONY RIZZO.
Cleveland Lefties are worth noting against Ivan Nova who struggles against them. FRANCISCO LINDOR and JOSE RAMIREZ are interesting.
Finally, 3 from St Louis Cardinals, PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT, PAUK DEJONG and MATT CARPENTER are worth going with against Vince Velasquez.
So, I'll mix up those 3 pitchers with the above 4 ‘stacks' and then throw in some value players in the other positions using my ratings, which you can receive by signing up on the homepage.
