8/1 MLB DFS Pitching and Prop Picks

Published

on

The 8/1 MLB DFS slate consists of just six games. Despite being light in games, the slate does have two studs on the bump. However, their matchups are less than ideal. But given the other pitching options available on this 8/1 MLB DFS slate, these are good places to start building those daily fantasy sports cash game lineups.

Gerrit Cole vs. Cleveland Indians

DraftKings – $11,300 FanDuel – $11,700

Admittedly this is not a great matchup for the Houston Astros’ starter. Cleveland is striking out at only a 22.3% clip this season. But on this 8/1 MLB DFS slate, it is tough to ignore just how good Cole has been this season. He has a 2.88 SIERA and a 2.94 ERA to go along with a slate high 37% strikeout rate. If you like to build your Daily Fantasy Sports lineups with a player’s floor in mind, Cole is for you.

Clayton Kershaw vs. San Diego Padres

DraftKings – $10,700 FanDuel – $11,400

The Dodgers’ southpaw has been locked in over the last 30 days. In four starts in that span, Kershaw has allowed a 12.6 K/9 rate as well as a 1.44 ERA and a 2.88 xFIP. And when is allowing contact, the opposing team is hitting a bunch of worm burners, as he has a 50.9% groundball rate over the last month. With the Padres’ offense owning just a .248 batting average and a 25.4% K rate versus lefties in 2019, Kershaw is a safe play for the 8/1 MLB DFS slate.

Jack Flaherty vs. Chicago Cubs

DraftKings – $8,600 FanDuel – $8,500

If you are looking to get off the beaten path a little bit on this 8/1 MLB DFS slate, look no further than the Cardinals’ Jack Flaherty. The St. Louis starter is awfully tough at home this season. Flaherty has a 10.44 K/9 ratio in St. Louis this season. The right-hander also is allowing a very low .197 batting average and a 0.91 WHIP in games at Busch in 2019. His dominance at home should continue on Thursday as the Cubs’ offense is in a funk. In the second half of the season, Chicago owns a low .239 batting average paired with a 27.6% K%.

Max Fried vs. Cincinnati Reds

DraftKings – $5,800 FanDuel – $7,500

If you prefer to punt the pitcher position on the 8/1 MLB DFS slate, the Braves’ Max Fried could be your guy. While it is not a sexy play, Fried should be in a position to provide value on Thursday against a depleted Reds’ lineup that just shipped out two of their better hitters in Puig and Gennett. Fried’s ceiling probably is not very high considering that he has completed six innings of work just once in his last five appearances, but at his price (especially on DraftKings) he doesn’t need a complete game to provide value. 

Monkey Knife Fight Pitching Props

After nailing a deGrom/Giolito over 12.5 strikeout prop last night, I will look to stay hot on MKF. 

And my first pick for the 8/1 MLB DFS slate may be a surprise as it involves a Baltimore Orioles pitcher. But Asher Wojciechowski has struck out at least six batters in all but one of his appearances this season. His only miss was a ⅔ inning appearance in which he struck out two. So I feel good about the over 4.5 prop bet here. 

And as I mentioned above, Kershaw was locked in in July and that should continue here today. So I’ll take the over 6.5 strikeout prop for the Dodgers’ ace. Play MLB Prop Games now and Get 100 Percent Bonus!

DraftKings For Breakfast: Steve Hillman’s Day Begins with the FBWC(Opens in a new browser tab)

I am a 24 year old Canadian DFS player who has been playing since my 18th birthday. I am the 80th ranked NBA DFS player while playing exclusively on DraftKings. My best DFS sport is definitely basketball, but not just NBA. Euroleague is where I specialize, while WNBA is also a profitable sport for me. I do NHL, NFL and PGA as well, and have been an NHL and MLB writer in the past for Rotogrinders.
