Cole Hamels (-235 Favorite) $8,600

Hamels is a great play in all formats tonight with a matchup at home against the White Sox. He is a huge favorite and remains fairly cheap across all DFS platforms. The Cubs bats should be able to provide him plenty of run support with a great matchup against Ivan Nova.

Jack Flaherty (-230 Favorite) $8,000

Flaherty is also a great play in all formats tonight for all the right reasons. He has a good matchup against the Marlins, he’s at home, and he is a massive favorite, so a win looks very likely. Flaherty has had his ups and downs all year long, but he’s still a young pitcher and certainly has the stuff to rack up the points. I don’t mind him in either Cash or GPP, but would lean more towards on GPP for him just because of his inconsistency.

Clayton Kershaw (-250 Favorite) $10,700

Kershaw is the more obvious play here, due to his name and matchup tonight. A start against the Giants at home certainly will catch a lot of eyes, and his price isn’t too shabby. I’m willing to pay $10,700 on him without really blinking an eye. Easily a cash play if you have some value bats to throw in your lineup tonight.

 

Angels

The Angels are in line to do some serious damage against Edwin Jackson in Toranto tonight. The total in this one is 10.5 and they are pretty decent favorites at -165. I think Trout is a must play in all formats, as well as trying to throw in any other Angels who are hitting in the meat of the lineup tonight.

Athletics

The A’s are massive favorites tonight against Andrew Cashner and the Orioles. The Atheltics bats remain fairly cheap across DFS platforms, making them a very valuable team to stack tonight. If Cashner unravels like he’s capable of doing, the A’s could make you a lot of money on this slate.

Dodgers

Maeda and the Dodgers are the biggest favorites on tonight’s slate at -240. They draw a great matchup against the struggling Tyler Beede of the Giants, who sports an 8.06 ERA. Maeda and all the Dodger bats make for great plays tonight in any format.

Reds

The Reds draw a great matchup tonight at home against Jesse Chavez of the Rangers. Cincinnati is a great hitters ballpark and the Reds are decent favorites here in a pretty high projected run total. Chavez is more of a reliever, so expect the Rangers to be pitching out of the bullpen all game. The Reds stay cheap across all DFS platforms, making them very intriguing.

Braves

The Braves bats are red hot, and they get to stay at home for another series against the Phillies. I fully expect them to continue to crush the baseball, especially against a guy like Nick Pivetta. Pivetta has a 4.93 ERA and is expected to struggle in Atlanta tonight. The Braves find themselves on the better half of things as far as the Vegas spread and run total goes.

Atheltics

Marco Gonzales finds himself on the mound tonight in Oakland, in what appears to be a tough match-up. The A’s have a lot of talented right handed bats on their team and Gonzales, the lefty, will most likely find himself struggling. The A’s are in the top tier of teams with projected run totals tonight and they stay very affordable in DFS, making them a great team to target.

Busy day today! FD Very Early, DK Early, and FD Early slates are all being played. Then for the evening we have the main slate, NHL game 7 and PGA picks for tomorrow’s major! Let’s dive into some teams to stack for tonight’s MLB main slate.

Blue Jays/Orioles

This game is a great game to pick bats from. It has a huge total of 11 and both teams are expected to score a lot of runs. We have two well below-average pitchers on the mound in Edwin Jackson and David Hess. Also, most of these bats are very affordable because the O’s and Jays are teams that you don’t normally target on a day to day basis.

Twins

The Twins are a massive favorite tonight in a big total of 9.5. They have a dream matchup at home against Tommy Milone of the Mariners. I’m loving all right handed bats tonight, as they could do some serious damage. Nelson Cruz is probably my favorite play on the entire slate.

It’s a new week and we are ready to crush these slates! Let’s look into some teams you should be stacking for tonight’s MLB main slate.

Phillies

The Phills find themselves in an awesome position tonight at home against Taylor Clarke of the D-Backs. The Phillies are favorites in this one and this game has a nice total of 9.5. Clarke has a 4.43 ERA so far this year and should struggle tonight against a powerful Phillies offense in a friendly hitting ballpark.

Braves

Musgrove gets the nod tonight for the Pirates in Atlanta. He actually just threw a gem against them last start, going 8 innings and striking out 6. However, the chances are slim that he duplicates this in Atlanta. The Braves are favorites in this one and the total is 10. Even though Musgrove had a good start last time out, he has still given up 26 hits in his last 3 starts. The Braves are a great team to target tonight.

Nationals

The Nationals have arguably the best matchup of the night in Chicago against Odrisamer Despaigne. This game has a big total of 10.5 and they are pretty decent favorites. Despaigne has a 4.94 career ERA and he has seen basically no action this entire season. I fully expect him to get knocked around tonight against the Nats.

Brewers

The Brewers find themselves with another awesome matchup tonight against Rookie Davis and the Pirates. Davis has been a reliever in all of his outings so far this year, so I expect the Pirates to have more of a bullpen day, which could really hurt them. The Brewers have been disappointing all week, but I won’t let that stop me from a juicy matchup at home.

Royals/White Sox

This game has a big total of 10. Both teams have a good opportunity to put up some runs, while remaining fairly cheep on DFS platforms.  If you are looking to do a full game stack tonight, this is the game to do it. A pitching matchup of Ivan Nova versus Homer Bailey, is always eye-catching in terms of hitting.

Angels

The Angels bats have been hot as of late, and they see a great matchup tonight with the Mariners in town. The lefty, Marco Gonzales is on the mound with a 4.89 ERA on the year so far. Look for all right-handed bats in this Angels lineup, as they all have great chances to produce. (Cough, cough, Mike Trout)

 

Brewers

I expect the Brew crew to have a big bounce back tonight against the Marlins. They got absolutely destroyed, losing 16 – 0 last night. The outcome tonight should be a lot different, as they are -250 favorites against the right hander, Sandy Alcantara. Alcantara has a 4 ERA and MIL is a great hitters ballpark. Expect a lot different things tonight for the Brewers.

Rangers

The Rangers are another favorite of mine for tonight’s slate for an obvious reason. They are at home and facing the Orioles pathetic pitching staff. On tonight’s menu, we have the lefty, John Means. Means has actually been pretty decent, but I don’t expect him to pitch well in this environment. There were a total of 23 runs in this game last night, I would target it again if I were you.

Red Sox

The Sox have a nice match up tonight against Junis of the Royals. Junis has a 5.35 ERA and I expect the Red Sox to take full advantage of this. Although the Sox bats are expensive, a stack of them could do you justice in tournaments.

Rangers

The Rangers have a picture perfect matchup tonight at home against Bundy of the Orioles. I love picking against the O’s pitching and the fact that he’s in Texas, makes it even sweeter. This game has a huge total and I expect the Rangers to light up the scoreboard.

Cubs

The wind is blowing out in Wrigley tonight and the Cubs have been smashing as of late. They are against Jeff Hoffman of the Rockies, who has a 7.2 ERA. He is expected to get lit up tonight, as the Cubs are -210 favorites in a 10.5 o/u game.

Dodgers

The Dodgers are massive favorites tonight in Arizona, against the righty, Taylor Clarke. Arizona is a very friendly hitting park, and the Dodgers should be able to pile up the runs tonight.

*BOS v. NYY is looking like the only ugly weather game for tonight. Keep up with updates leading up to first pitch.

Rangers

The Rangers are always a good team to target when they are at home. This game has a 10 o/u, topping every other game on this main slate. They have a nice matchup against Junis of the Royals who always has the chance to get blown up. Try to fit in a few Rangers tonight on your teams whether its cash and/or gpp.

Indians

The Indians find themselves as a heavy favorite tonight on the road against Manny Banuelos and the White Sox. Banuelos has a 7 ERA and struggles to get past the 4th inning on a consistent basis. The Indians just scored 14 runs against the BoSox yesterday, so the bats are hot. Sign me up for a bunch of Indians tonight!

Dodgers

Jason Vargas is drawing the start on the road tonight for the Mets. He has a very tough matchup in LA against the very talented Dodgers. Vargas has a 5.22 ERA and will most likely struggle throughout this start. Look for as many right-handed Dodger bats in this game as possible.

FD-Guru is back on track here. Was in the Cape for all of Memorial Day weekend. There was one mess up with a blurry lineup, but all in all a very successful weekend in the DFS world. Lets roll into today’s slate with a head full of steam. Here are some teams to consider stacking for tonight:

Phillies

The Phillies have a favorable match-up tonight at home against Wainwright of the Cardinals. Wainwright has a 4.82 ERA and is clearly on the back end of his career. Philly certainly plays more friendly for the hitter than the pitcher. Keep an eye out on the rain in this one as well, could be a delay, but a PPD isn’t out of the question yet either.

Astros

Lester finds himself lined up for one of his tougher starts of the year in Houston tonight. The Astros are arguably the best offense in the league and have a lot of great right-handed bats to throw at the southpaw. If you have some salary to spend up on hitters, look towards the Astros to put you in a good spot before the games start tonight.

Mariners

The Mariners are looking to face Jesse Chavez of the Rangers tonight at home. Adrian Sampson was supposed to start, but got scratched early today. Chavez is more of a relief pitcher these days and the Rangers clearly find themselves in a difficult situation for tonight. The Mariners will be facing a desperate bullpen day from the Rangers, meaning that they have a great chance to rack up the runs tonight.
