3 Hitters, 2 Pitchers, and 1 Dud for tonight’s Main Slate on Fanduel. Please note that this is made before lineups are confirmed; always check your lineups and the weather before lock to ensure your player(s) is/are starting and that the game will play. Good Luck!
Full disclosure for this article; I may not be able to complete this article everyday, I work full-time as a Firefighter in a busy city that isn’t conducive to sitting down and writing an article during every shift. However, I will try to get an article out on all days that I am not working at the station. With that being said, lets get to today’s writeup and cash tonight!
Tim Anderson – SS/CWS($3,000) – The White Sox have been on fire lately and that has correlated to Anderson going 12 for 30 (.400) with 3 HRs, 5 RBIs, and 1 steal the past 5 games. Don’t let the match-up vs Grienke scare you away from Anderson.
Mike Moustakas – 3B/KC($3,700) – BvP special, hits Pineda well (7 of 15, .467 average w/2 HRs).
Corey Dickerson – OF/TB($4,100) – Dickerson is another hitter who has been on fire lately, 5 HRs and 10 RBIs the past week. It’s also his birthday today.
Michael Pineda – ($8,700) – KC as a team is one of the worst group of hitters in baseball. It just so happens that Pineda strikes out 28.8% of hitters and induced a 13.7% Swinging Strike rate.
John Lackey – ($8,900) – I am not a huge fan of picking Lackey tonight as he has been very inconsistent this season, but the Cubs seems to be coming around at the plate and are heavy favorites vs the Giants(which may drive his ownership up with casual players).
Adam Jones – OF/Bal($3,600) – Although Jones has been hitting well above average the past week (11 for 29 .379 with 2 HRs) he doesn’t hit Gibson well(I am not endorsing Kyle Gibson at all today, just FYI). Jones is 2 for 14 (.143) vs Gibson in his career.
