Gerrit Cole vs. Detroit Tigers
DraftKings – $12,000 FanDuel – $12,200
The Astros’ hurler is the top pitcher on the slate. Cole has a slate high 36.8% K% as well as a 2.94 SIERA on the season. And now he faces the lowly Detroit Tigers’ offense. Detroit has produced just a .150 ISO with a 26.4% K% in 2019. Cole should thrive on this 8/22 MLB DFS slate.
Max Scherzer vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
DraftKings – $11,400 FanDuel – $12,000
The Nationals’ pitcher comes off the injured list in time to catch a great matchup against the Pittsburgh Pirates. His 2.84 xFIP makes him a great play against anyone but against the Pirates, he is a slam dunk. The Pittsburgh offense has a .241/.309/.398 slash line over the last 30 days. Combine that with his 35.3% K% and you have to get some Scherzer exposure on the 8/22 MLB DFS slate.
Mike Soroka vs. Miami Marlins
DraftKings – $10,000 FanDuel – $9,300
In the second half of the MLB season, Mike Soroka has posted a 2.38 ERA. His remarkable performance since the All-Star break should continue on this 8/22 MLB DFS slate. The Marlins have been equally bad in the second half. The offense has posted a measly .145 ISO and an 80 wRC+ in the second half.
Kenta Maeda vs. Toronto Blue Jays
DraftKings – $8,100 FanDuel – $7,800
The Dodgers’ right-hander is a nice value play on the 8/22 MLB DFS slate. Maeda will face an American League team that loses the DH at home, where he has been lights out. He is allowing a .176/.233/.318 slash line at home this season with a 27.2% K%.
