5 pitchers to consider on this slate:

  1. Max Scherzer – 10.6DK – He comes in third on the slate in Strikeout% sitting at 32.5%. He gets a STL team that struggles mightly with right-handed pitchers.
  2. Gerrit Cole – 9.9DK – He has a massive 30% k rate and gets to face the Orioles in Camden.
  3. Kevin Gausman – 10.1DK  – This guy is just a monster. Coming off 5 straight quality starts and has a massive 31% k rate and a miniscule 1.1% walk rate.
  4. Lucas Giolito – 8.3K – No clue why he is priced this low and I would assume he will be chalky but he has the 2nd highest k rate on the slate at 35.2%. Pristine matchup here.
  5. Shohei Ohtani – 9.2K – He has the highest k rate on the slate tonight at 35.4%. Clean matchup at Texas.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Toronto Blue Jays – I normally target the Jays versus right-handed pitching but Marco Gonzales has the highest xERA on the slate at 5.40.
  2. New York Yankees – Another day, more Yankees. Aaron Judge is on a tear like none other and gets Jordan Lyles who is giving up 90 MPH EV.
  3. Los Angeles Angels – This team is the REAL DEAL and gets a mediocre righty in Dane Dunning.
  4. Chicago White Sox – Grienke has a 9% strikeout rate and a 4.98 xERA.
  5. New York Mets –  Hicks has a 11% barrell rate allowed and a 4.60 xERA.
