    Cole and Allen on FD

  • bucherpsu08

    Allen is intriguing but I’ll be interested to see that O/U. It is hot and humid as hell here in Baltimore this week.

    Captainwacky – your boy Franmil is $2800 and in Baltimore against yacagascan – 100% exposure?

  • me_mike84

    DK pricing is crazy. Scherzer seems impossible to play at 12.4K. you’d have to play a 6K pitcher or less to leave DECENT room for bats. and so many hitters are priced about 5K-high 4K

  • realphipps

    So winds are blowing out in like half of the parks tonight? This should be fun.

    I’m always wary of taking a high priced right handed ace versus the Marlins, especially Scherzer who has a surprisingly bad history versus these guys. Mid range right handed pitchers have been doing well lately versus the Marlins and can normally be had in the 7 to 9k range.

    However, the Marlins lineup has been a bit weaker lately, and if you think this is the game Scherzer Fans 15 and goes CGSO, you can pair him with an 8k pitcher and punt catcher, and use one other under 3k guy in another spot. That will give you around 4100 for the remaining 6 bats. Which would be enough if Max hangs a 40 spot.

    This Tigers/Rangers game could be very sneaky tonight.

    i’m gonna play around with a few lineup builds….pitching has been so inconsistent as a whole and i’ve been very cautious to spend up on a pitcher. if it were a smaller slate maybe….but the more i am looking, there are some other decent options for less money. if i fade scherzer and he puts up a CGSO then oh well

    I’ll probably do 7 or 8 lineups, I’ll have 2 Scherzer. 🤷‍♂️

  • Jameson12

    Scherzer is a fade here. For some reason the Marlins do OK against him. Not gonna pay up for him.

    Well I never go 100 percent exposure to any batter, but I’ll have heaps.

    And I probably do go 100 percent at times, but only if I’m being lazy.

    Being a Rangers fan, I really like Chavez tonight against Detroit tonight, he’s not necessarily a strikeout guy but induces a lot of ground balls and the Tigers do strike out a bunch. For $5300 on Dk I think he’s Avery viable sp2 pitcher in all formats. Might blow up in my face tonight but I’m rolling with him and probably either cole, Allen, or price. Probably the padres, Yankees, rangers bats.

  • casper

    Nestor Cortes could pitch 5 innings if he’s the primary pitcher he had 7 ks Vrs the sox and he’s 4 k on DK.Kyle Garlick may get a start tonight and bat 5th for the dogers at 2200.

    always love looking at VegasInsider = Starter-Based Trend of the Day:

    — The Indians are 7-0 SU in franchise history as a favorite of more than 125 with Shane Bieber when they lost his last start.

    That’s all I needed to know on the BEEB baby — threw him in a LU with a TRIBE STACK on FD — Bobby Bradley only up $200 to $2.2K —

    Just a slew of SMASH (potential) spots tonight —

    Kinda liked a wide-eyed gamble on Ooh-that-SMELL, but saw the V.I. Straight up Play against trend of the day and said – nah —

    The Rays are 0-14 SU in the first game of a road series with rest when they are off a game as a road dog and they are playing a team that has a better record.

    Not sure I want to go with ALLEN @ CAMDEN YARDS, but still kicking myself for not having a share in his first start.

    Gonna need a fat huge score to take down a GPP 2 nite and the cashline should be pretty crazy as well.

    Need to find tonight’s Jon Gray, who I was all over yesterday and then pussed out on and went with E-FRAUD and his crap start for Boston, which I guess 2-nite BEANTOWN is looking like the only potential weather issue.

    Not sure of Allen’s price on dk but on FD $8500 is a joke. I wouldn’t play him with your money. That game has 12-9 written all over it.

    He’s 8.1 on DK and I don’t think he’s in play there either, but I’d be shocked if the O’s scored 9 runs. Blown. Away. Guy isn’t that bad and the Padres have a pretty strong pen behind him. Could be wrong. I wanted to like the O’s as an ultimate sneaky stack today. I turned that rock over for a while this morning and found nothing.

    On the other hand, Padres scoring 12 runs wouldn’t shock me at all.

    I think an ultimate sneaky stack today could be the cardinals. They gotta wake up eventually right? If I was doing more than 6 lineups I’d throw a stack in….still might. At least on fanduel I think Bassett ownership will be through the roof

    Yankees always first game of the slate against a terrible pitcher. Gets annoying.

    Bassit vs the cards sounds ok to me
