3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Gerrit Cole – 12DK – Will be extremely low owned here in this spot in Toronto against the Blue Jays. He has been incredible over the last month. He has a 2.77 xFIP, 31% k rate and a 3% walk rate. I could see yet another 30 piece here at close to 10% ownership. Sign me up. AWESOME pivot from the mega chalk Pablo Lopez.
  2. Dane Dunning – 7.8DK – Absolute pristine matchup here for Dunning in LA against the floundering Angels. Over the last month, they have struck out the MOST in the league versus right-handed pitching.
  3. Zack Thompson – 5.9DK –  Should see a watered down lineup for the Brewers as they locked up the NL central last night as the Braves beat the Cubs. Will be chalk though. I am not seeing many other options on this slate…

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Los Angeles Dodgers – Will be the mega chalk of the slate tonight but for good reason. This Rockies starting pitching staff has almost a 6 ERA on the season and their pen has been the worst in baseball. ALL ABOARD!!
  2. Atlanta Braves –  Awesome pivot from the mega chalk Dodgers here. Taillon has been decent, but this is still the Braves who are now 5 homers away from the single season record. I think they get 2-3 of them here tonight. It starts with Matt Olson for me tonight…
  3. Minnesota Twins – They get the rookie Joey Estes here. In his first appearance, he gave up 5 ER and 3 bombs to seattle. He went 90 pitches still…. The bullpen is also a disaster behind him. He gave up a massive 25% barrell rate and 65% HC!! Love the twinkies here!
