DFS Picks Of the Night 05/24/19
High Priced Pitcher
Noah Syndergaard $10,100 – Syndergaard draws one of the best matchups of the slate vs Detroit who has really struggled with right handed pitching this season. Match that with a fireballer like Syndergaard who can mow down righties and we have ourselves my #1 ace of the slate at a fair price.
Trent Thornton $7,600 – No I don’t think he’s very good but I do like the matchup vs the Padres who strikeout a lot vs right handed pitching. Thornton will struggle with lefties but the good news here is he should only have to face 3 of them in tonight’s lineup. He also has a decent K rate which should boost his floor in the event of him giving up a couple runs.
High End Bat
Nolan Arenado $5,600 – This play is a layup. He’s facing a fly ball lefty at home in Coors and Arenado absolutely smashes lefties. He has a .444iso and .503 wOBA vs them this year.
Mid Range Bat
Max Kepler $4,500 – One of my favorite guys for DFS and this Twins offense is on fire. They went off for 16 runs yesterday and I like their chances to stay hot at home vs Reynaldo Lopez who struggles with lefties. Batting leadoff there is ample opportunity for production on this potent offense.
Steve Pearce $3,000 – He’s gonna be the highest owned player on DK tonight but for good reason. He’s projected to bat 5th vs a lefty which is where he’s made his money at vs his career is vs lefties. He’s dirt cheap and had an amazing game yesterday.
