Million Dollar Musings: Wednesday, July 11th

Is your lineup Premium Approved? In this space, either CheeseIsGood or STLCardinals84 will break down the slate from top-to-bottom like no one else in the industry can – exploring the matchups from every angle, steering you toward the best plays on the day, and helping you become a better and more complete DFS player as you continually expose yourself to the “process” and the “why,” rather than just looking at the “what.” Have a boat? We’ll teach you how to fish.

Wednesday, July 11th


Chris Sale vs Texas
Jacob deGrom at NY Mets
Lance McCullers vs Oakland

We have the same three-ace tier that we had five days ago, when all three came through with big starts. On that slate, McCullers was the winner based on lower salary and ownership, but that doesn’t change that he’s still 3rd in line tonight.

    Love the pitching article, can’t wait to hear your thoughts with the hitters. Must say this is a interestgly good slate with many ways to go. We have 7 pitchers who can potentially get you 30, we have coors, Yankee bats, Red Sox. I’m thinking top pitchers with a cardinals stack will be the chalk.

    I just don’t trust these skills, the home/road splits do not change anything for me. It’s just the Orioles matchup is enough to leave him the in the long shot GPP category.
