Contrarian Corner August 6th

Welcome to the Contrarian Corner. This blog will be about doing things a little differently than what most of the Rotogrinders team recommends. Anyone can look at team totals and decide to stack the team with the highest total. What I attempt to do is stack teams that will be low owned and are in great spots, despite what the Vegas team total might be. This strategy has a high level of variance. I am not aiming to cash for the minimum, I am trying to win GPP’s.

Yesterday two of the three teams I gave our did well. Guess which one I played more of? I mean you already know. Today I was delayed in writing this as I had to go to the dentist. The dentist is the worst and I have to go back tomorrow.

In the main slate tonight the Yankees and Red Sox will be chalk along with the Indians. I want to stack the Indians and play the cheap Yankee bats.

In terms of contrarian plays I have two teams on my radar.

Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are an over team and I am going right back to the well. Last night the well was dry and hopefully tonight it’s full of money and runs. Give me some Travis d’Arnaud since he’s in the lineup!

Los Angeles Dodgers
Late games garner less ownership and this is a great spot. Late night hammer for the win. It worked last night and the matchup is just as good if not better. This is a great time to start betting the Dodgers too.

This is my plan as this morning. I’m Milo741 on all the DFS sites. Follow along on twitter @wintheweekend, as I will post my bets as well. Good luck everyone.
