A full slate DFS card on Monday is broken up by a couple of day games, as some players may elect to play an All Day or possibly the 13-game night card only.
FanDuel has the Wednesday $250,000 Grand Slam, plus more Playboy Mansion Qualifiers, as well as, Dallas Fantasy Baseball Championship Qualifiers.
Arizona is expected to be the place to get your runs tonight, as the Giants-Diamonbacks night game has an overnight total of slightly under 9 with the D’backs favored at -125, so figure on a 5-4 game tonight. However, we can also consider the Milwaukee Brewers for the third-straight game, as they are a more considerable favorite tonight versus Colorado at -150, with the total slight under 8 1/2, which could put the Brewers on a 5-3 winning margin.
Oddsmakers would appear to favor the pitching prospects of Washington’s Jordan Zimmerman (pictured) and Los Angeles’ Brandon McCarthy, as both hurlers’ teams were around -145 favorites overnight, with a game total at around 6 1/2. You will have to consider paying up for Zimmerman, however, as he is the top salaried pitcher on FanDuel.
Lance Lynn and Jake Arrieta had their starts pushed back to this afternoon following a rain out last night. The Cards-Cubs have had two days off after Sunday night’s opener. The other day game is the early start, as the Twins face the Tigers in Detroit.
PLAYERS TO AVOID
Matt Carpenter – The Cards’ Carpenter is 0-for-11 against the Cubs’ Jake Arrieta with three Ks.
Miguel Cabrera – A notable below-par BvP on Wednesday of 2-for-9, 5 Ks vs. the Twins’ Nolasco.
Jose Bautista – Bautista is just 2-for-14 lifetime with four Ks against the Yankees’ Pineda.
Mike Trout – The Angels’ star is 5-for-26 against the M’s Iwakuma.
Albert Pujols – Albert is just 5-for-27 against Iwakuma.
