8/24 MLB DFS Pitching Picks

Published

on

For some unknown reason FanDuel tonight decided to split the 8/24 MLB DFS night slate. Why? I have no clue. Meanwhile at DraftKings they did it the right way today on this 8/24 MLB DFS Slate.

Mike Clevinger vs. Kansas City Royals

$11,200 FD / $11,800 DK

Mike Clevinger for me tonight is the clear 8/24 MLB DFS top option, and the salary reflects it. The Kansas City Royals strike out 20.6 percent of the time versus RHPs with a low .312 wOBA and wRC+ of 92. Over his last two starts versus the Royals he has only allowed one earned run over 12 innings while punching out 16 batters. He is the clear cash game option on the board, and with plenty of decent cheap bats in good matchups tonight he should be easy enough to fit in on both FanDuel, and DraftKings.

Dakota Hudson vs. Colorado Rockies

$8,000 FD / $8,500 DK

Anytime the Colorado Rockies leave Coors Field they are a prime target for DFS purposes. Especially on this 8/24 DFS MLB Slate. The Rocks strike out 21.4 percent of the time versus RHP and are 29th in MLB in wRC+ (77) on the road. Over Hudson’s last two starts versus the Brewers and Royals he has back-to-back shutouts with 11 strikeouts over 12 innings. If you pair him tonight with Clevinger on DK it still leaves you a little over $3,700 per player to build the rest of your lineup, which is doable.

Chris Bassitt vs. San Francisco Giants

? FD / $9,600 DK

As mentioned earlier FanDuel decided to get freaky with it on this 8/24 MLB DFS Slate. Which means Bassitt is currently unavailable at the time of writing this article. But he is available on DK and if you do not want to go with Clevinger as your SP1, then this is where I would look.

The Giants are providing more strikeout upside than previous seasons (22.7 percent versus RHPs) and offensively have been lackluster posting a .310 wOBA overall. Over Bassitt’s last four starts spanning 25 innings, he has 22 strikeouts; allowing only five earned runs facing some pretty tough opponents, including the Astros, and Cubs.

This is where the options start to get a lot riskier on this 8/24 MLB DFS slate.

Zac Gallen vs. Milwaukee Brewers

$8,800 FD / $9,400 DK

I am not going to lie; this one scares me a bit and will only be used in large field GPP play on FD, or an SP2 on DK for this 8/24 MLB DFS slate. The Brewers are providing plenty of strikeout upside versus RHPs doing so 24.2 percent of the time, but the .334 wOBA makes me shake in my sneakers a bit. The way I see it, the park shift going from Arizona to Milwaukee is comparable and Gallen is currently posting a 2.57 home ERA. No need to fret, it is lower on the road coming in at 2.31. Despite a few subpar outings he has not allowed more than two earned runs in has last seven starts while striking out 54 batters over his last 46 1/3 innings.

Max Fried vs. New York Mets

$8,500 FD / $8,300 DK

Despite the Mets posting a wRC+ of 103 versus LHPs, they still strike out 23.8 percent of the time. But fear not, they have been in a bit of a funk as of late, and the .309 wOBA over the last seven days shows it. I cannot see a better time to take this chance here, Fried has faced the Mets three times this season, striking out 16 hitters over 17 innings, while allowing three earned runs. Like I said, it’s risky, but on this 8/24 MLB DFS slate Fried makes for a great GPP play on FD, or slightly risky SP2 on DK.

John Means vs. Tampa Bay Rays

$6,200 FD / $6,100 DK

Wow, this is where we are at on this 8/24 MLB DFS slate, John Means. Truth be told for his price he does provide value on both sites, and certainly will keep you on edge. The last time he faced the Rays they tagged him for six earned runs over six innings at home, while in the previous start he went seven innings allowing two earned runs. So, this one really could go either way. With the Rays striking out 24.9 percent of the time while posting a wRC+ of 95 versus LHPs, in large field GPPs I wouldn’t be afraid to take a shot and load my lineup with high priced bats.
