Here’s your help with picks for tonights 7pm slate on Draftkings. We’ve got 9 games to choose from to help you draft your MLB DFS LineupPitchers
Jacob DeGrom $12,000 @ PHI: DeGrom is easily the best pitcher on the slate tonight. Phillies aren’t as bad as they used to be, most of their struggles are in the pitching department. DeGrom’s K rate is what you pay for on Draftkings, and with Cespedes just going yak 3 times in games, DeGrom is a -200 favorite to pick up the 4 point W as well.
Julio Teheran $8,100 vs COL: Colorado doesn’t hit on the road like they do at home, obviously. Colorado’s projected run total is only at 3.23 and Teheran is a small favorite for the W at -128. But take a look at Colorado’s last 40 ABs vs Teheran and you’ll see a .188 batting average. Decent price with not a whole ton of options on this small slateCatcher
Yadier Molina $3,300: Not a ton going on at the Catcher position today, so let’s save some cash and go Yadi in a hitters ball park in Arizona batting 5th in a lineup that can explode at timesFirst Base
Adam Laroche $3,400: Lefty facing right hander Joe Kelly in a game where the White Sox are projected 4.54 run total is a play I like.
Michael Cuddyer $3,200: Good line up spot in a potent Mets offense vs the fly ball prone lefty Adam Morgan. Cuddyer has hit lefties very well over his career.Second Base
Brandon Phillips $4,000: Anyone at the top of a lineup projected for 4.77 runs and at a decent price like this has my attention.
Neil Walker $3,600: If you’re gonna ever play Walker you want to catch him from the left side, which he’ll be batting tonight in Miami. Solid lineup spot on a team projected for 4.35 runs. (if you haven’t noticed I like high run totals and lineup spots)Shortstop
Eugenio Suarez $4,000: He’s averaging over 9 points on Draftkings in his last 10 games, and batting .302 on the year. Another good lineup spot on the high run projected Reds in a good ball park against a poopy pitcher.
Jhonny Peralta $3,900: Good hitters park and facing a lefty. Like I said Cardinals have potential to put up runs. Really not much else I like at the SS position.Third Base
Alex Rodriguez $4,500: Yankees are hitting .302 off Feldman in their last 112 ABs, and ARod has 2 dingers in his last 16 ABs v Feldman. Good run total for the Yankees tonight, and managable price.
Luis Valbuena $3,800: I hate Valbuena as a hitter coming from a baseball fan, but the majority of his HRs come against righties, Eovaldi struggles against righties, and there aren’t may parks better for lefty dingers than Yankee Stadium.Outfield
Nelson Cruz $5,000: A bit pricy and tough to fit into your lineup with DeGrom, but Cruz has a .477 wOBA v lefties. Doubront is a poo poo lefty. Go with Cruz if you can fit him.
Colby Rasmus $3,500: For the same reason i like Valbuena, I like Rasmus. The pole in RF is what, about the same as the LLWS at Lamade?
Jay Bruce $4,100: Facing a righty and a 4.77 run total, you’re hoping Bruce will get one up in that wind tunnel in Cincy.
