8/5 MLB DFS Pitching Picks



This is a day where paying up for pitcher is a necessity for me. The low priced options in 8/5 MLB DFS Pitching are ugly and the mid tier guys aren’t much better. I see two studs at the top I LOVE and I dug out one low option, as well as one mid-ranger in case we’re feeling froggy.

8/5 MLB DFS Pitching Stud: Lucas Giolito @ Detroit Tigers

DraftKings – $11,000, FanDuel- $9,800

Giolito returned to form last time out against the New York Mets, going seven innings and striking out nine batters. This turn he gets the putrid Detroit Tigers, who traded away their best hitter at the deadline. On the road this season is where Giolito shines even more. He holds a 2.76 ERA and an 11.02 K/9. There is not one player on the Tigers that worries me so I will lock in Giolito in all formats in 8/5 MLB DFS Pitching.

8/5 MLB DFS Pitching Mid_Ranger: Jeff Samardzija vs Washington Nationals

DraftKings – $8,700, FanDuel – $8,600

I never once thought I would say his name this season, but here we are. The Shark has been pretty solid fantasy wise this season and we get a huge park boost playing in San Francisco. At home he holds a 3.67 ERA and a 8.17 K/9. This will be one of my GPP mid-tier guys here as he has eclipsed or been near 25 points 5 times this season.

8/5 MLB DFS Pitching Stud 2: Charlie Morton vs Toronto Blue Jays

DraftKings – $10,700, FanDuel – $10,100

The Blue Jays are exciting to watch, they have a ton of young talent coming up and they are explosive. That being said, they are still young and inexperienced. Charlie Morton is a vet that knows how to slice and dice the opposing batters. This season at home Morton owns a 2.77 ERA and a staggering 12.55 K/9. The Blue Jays are young and it shows. They strike out a ton and I don’t see why Morton can’t be the highest scoring pitcher.

8/5 MLB DFS Pitching Value Play: Spencer Turnbull vs Chicago White Sox

DraftKings – $7,000, FanDuel – $6,600

Fresh off the IL we get Turnbull heading to Chicago to play the White Sox. Over the weekend we saw the White Sox strike out 38 times. Turnbull has the ability to rack up the strikeouts and that’s what I expect here. Against right handed bats he has a 9.48 K/9 and a 52.3% ground ball rate. I expect a ton of strikeouts and ground balls to go with the numbers. I love Turnbull as a punt for cash and a cheap GPP option with upside.
