8/27 MLB DFS Pitching Picks



We have a nice full schedule tonight on this 8/27 MLB DFS slate, including the Red Sox at Colorado with Rick Porcello on the mound. With a lot of top tier starters going it will be important, especially on DraftKings, to find value at the SP2 position to create enough flexibility to roster a competitive lineup. So, with NFL right around the corner, and an incredibly busy day ahead of me, I bring you today’s top pitching plays.

Justin Verlander vs. Tampa Bay Rays

$12,300 FD / $12,000 DK

Verlander is the top dawg on this 8/27 MLB DFS slate, even if not necessarily getting the best matchup. Although the Rays are one of the better offenses versus RHPs, they still strike out 22 percent of the time. The last time Verlander faced the Rays he allowed one earned run over seven innings while fanning nine. The price is high, but so is the safe upside.

Walker Buehler vs. San Diego Padres

$11,600 FD / $11000 DK

With the Padres boasting a whopping .298 wOBA versus RHPs, and a 26.6 percent strikeout rate, Buehler is a another top dawg on this 8/27 MLB DFS slate. The last time he faced the Padres he struck out 15 batters while allowing only one earned run in a masterful complete game performance. Now factor in the has thrown three shutouts in his last seven starts and this one seems to easy.

Luis Castillo vs. Miami Marlins

$11,000 FD / $10,000 DK

One of the only teams better to attack versus RHPs than the Padres, is the Marlins. They are striking out 25.5 percent of the time and are 30th in MLB in both wOBA, and wRC+. With RHBs posting a .180 average versus Castillo, and an extremely right-handed heavy lineup, Castillo should dominate tonight on this 8/27 MLB DFS slate as he goes fishing for strikeouts against this simply horrible team.

Mike Soroka vs. Toronto Blue Jays

$8,800 FD / $9,300 DK

Although I would make sure to roster at least one of the three starters listed above as my SP1 on DK for this 8/27 MLB slate, if I was to take a shot, Soroka would top the list. The Blue Jays are striking out 25.6 percent of the time versus RHPs while posting a .311 wOBA, which is 25th in MLB. Even though he gets less than a favorable park shift taking the mound in Toronto, Soroka has managed to navigate the Dodgers, Nationals, and Twins as of late which leads me to believe he can easily cage the Blue Jays tonight.

Adam Plutko vs. Detroit Tigers

$7,600 FD / $6,500 DK

With a Coors Field game on this 8/27 MLB DFS slate you are going to want to take some chances tonight and hope to hit some value so you can roster some of them big bats. Snuggled right in between the Marlins, and Padres as the worst teams in MLB facing RHPs, is the not so mighty Detroit Tigers. Despite allowing five earned runs the last time he faced this terrible lineup, over his last two starts facing the Yankees, and Mets, he has only allowed five earned runs over 12 1/3 innings while striking out eight. This may not sound that great but, for $6,500 on DK I would be more than happy with similar numbers facing a Tigers team that strikes out a lot more than both previous mentioned teams.

Adrian Houser vs. St. Louis Cardinals

$7,500 FD / $5,000 DK

I know what you are thinking, why attack the Cardinals after last night? The answer is simple, especially on DK, salary. Although I would only use Houser tonight as a GPP play on FD for the price, at that $5,000 salary on DK, boy I sure salivate at the thought of that extra spending power. The last time Houser faced the Cardinals in St. Louis he only allowed one earned run over 5 1/3 innings while fanning six. Over his last three starts in general he has only allowed three earned runs over 18 1/3 innings with 20 strikeouts. This 8/27 MLB DFS slate has the potential to be an exciting one, and this could be the sleeper play of the night.
