In L.A., so far this season, Kershaw has shown his Cy Young winning dominance. He has posted a 2.35 ERA with a 8.92 K/9. Now, the strikeouts aren’t exactly where they could be with his talent, but it’s still good. The Cardinals are on a down slope as they dropped six of 10 and their last three. Kershaw is a 8/6 MLB DFS Pitching cash game lock for me and tournament upside is there, too.
Zach Wheeler vs Miami Marlins
DraftKings – $10,600, FanDuel – $10,700
If you’ve read my articles before, you know I LOVE targeting Miami when they’re at home. The Mets are on complete fire and this pitching staff is showing its potential right now. Since the break Wheeler has posted a 2.19 ERA and a 10.22 K/9. There aren’t any bats in this Miami lineup to be worried about. They recently called up their young soon to be star in Isan Diaz, but off a long back to back day these offenses will be taxed. Give me Wheeler with the immense 10 K upside in 8/6 MLB DFS Pitching.
Chase Anderson @ Pittsburgh Pirates
DraftKings – $6,000, FanDuel – $6,900
The Pirates turned from an exciting team to a team that just cannot put anything together. They have dropped eight of 10 and their last three. On the road this season Anderson has posted a 3.65 ERA and a 7.05 K/9. With his struggles coming against right handed bats, immense reverse splits, he shapes up vs. the Pirates well as most of their bats are lefties. This is my 8/6 MLB DFS Pitching night punt in all formats.
Anthony DeSclafani vs Los Angeles Angels
DraftKings – $8,300, FanDuel – $7,900
DeSclafani, who is a much better pitcher at home, gets the Angels in town in this one. He holds a 3.40 ERA and a 10.02 K/9 at home this season. Most of his trouble comes from lefty bats and luckily their dangerous bats outside of Ohtani are right handed. This is mid tier 8/6 MLB DFS Pitching option. I don’t prefer a mid tier route today, but it’s here if you need it.
Jose Berrios vs Atlanta Braves
DraftKings – $11,000, FanDuel – $10,800
Anything Berrios is at home, he is always in a couple of my lineups. I don’t think he fits the cash build today, but he definitely fits a ton of GPP routes. At home he holds a 2.10 ERA and a 8.55 K/9. He has a little trouble with left handed bats so Freddie Freeman does scare me, but not enough to make me fade Berrios in 8/6 MLB DFS Pitching. We know the upside with the young star, don’t ignore it. Berrios could be on a ton of GPP winning lineups.
