4 pitchers to consider on this slate:

  1. Hunter Greene – 8.1DK – He is a borderline lock button play for me on this slate at this price. He has the 2nd highest strikeout rate on the slate at 29% and has a 3.77 SIERA. The Cubs have struck out the 7th most versus RHP over the last couple of weeks and have been a bottom 3 offense.
  2. Alek Manoah – 8.7DK – This is the lowest price we have seen on him all season long and he keeps producing. He has Quality starts in 7 of his last 8 starts. His strikeout rate is only 23% but he more than makes up for it in longevity.
  3. Sandy Alcantara – 10.0DK  – Talk about consistency. Prior to his last start he had a run of 8 straight quality starts, while going for 8 Innings or more in 5 of them. He is dominant versus RHB and he will likely see 5-6 of them here.
  4. Shohei Ohtani – 9.1DK – White Sox bats came to life last night, but I expect a return to earth here versus Ohtani. He has the highest strikeout rate on the slate today at 33% and has an incredible 2.67 SIERA.

4 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Los Angeles Dodgers – Welp, another Coors slate for the Dodgers to let us down on. They have been horrific in this series but I expect a turnaround for this game here against Marquez. Freddie Freeman is my top overall bat on the slate.
  2. Atlanta Braves  – LOVE my Braves in this matchup versus a mediocre lefty. I doubt Acuna will be in the lineup again, but thats fine for me. Swanson, TDA, Riley and Contreras are all ELITE plays on this slate for me.
  3. Toronto Blue Jays – The Blue Jays roster has a 490 xSLG and a 359 WOBA versus Pivetta in 131 plate appearances. Pivetta is also more of a revers splits guy, so it make sense that the Jays have hit him well.
  4. Cleveland Guardians – Dylan Bundy just isnt good at all. He is allowing a 202 ISO versus lefties this season and a 190 ISO versus righties. Cleveland also has the lowest strikeout rate in the majors versus RHP this season.
