3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Gerrit Cole – 10.8DK – Will most likely be the highest owned pitcher on the slate tonight at home against the Rays. Over the last 5 weeks, he has a 2.96 xFIP, 29% k rate and a 4% walk rate. Tampa has been a middle of the road offense over the last month.
  2. Logan Webb – 9.8DK – I Love this spot for Webb here tonight at home against the Diamondbacks. Over the last 5 weeks, he has a 2.58 xFIP, 27% k rate and a 2% walk rate.
  3. Slade Cecconi – 6.5DK –  First round pick in 2020 and the Dbacks number 9 rated prospect. Currently pitching in the hitter friendly PCL. Has good strikeout stuff averaging 1 per inning on the season. This Giants team is garbage and I’m not scared to pitch against them.

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Baltimore Orioles – Absolutely LOVE this Orioles team against Kikuchi. Mountcastle is 5/10 with 4 bombs off him and Rutschman is 3/11 with 2 bombs. Also really like Santander, Hays and Westburg. Elite stack tonight!
  2. Cincinnati Reds –  Drew Smyly day!! He is allowing a massive 254 ISO and 383 WOBA vs righties over the last 5 weeks along wityh a massive 50% HC rate. Love the whole lineup here.
  3. Los Angeles Dodgers – Going right back to Free Money Freddie and Mookie here. They have been AWESOME versus LHP all season and they both crushed for us last night.
