DFS Pitching and MLB Prop Picks for July 3: The King Yields to Duffy



If you are trying to save money on DFS Pitching tonight you may veer towards the Cubs-Pirates game, where two underachieving guys who were regarded as aces in past seasons square off and still have some apparent appeal, while certainly diminished. But I am avoiding Yu Darvish ($8600 on DraftKings) and Chris Archer in this one. The Pirates are actually leading MLB in batting over the past week. Darvish has allowed nine runs in his past two starts and at least four runs in three of his past four outings. Archer has allowed four runs in four of his past seven starts, and may be the better play of the two, but I am not risking him personally against a team that is fourth in the N.L. in homers. Archer has allowed 18 HRs so far this season.

Chris Sale seems to be the obvious top DFS Pitching play at $11,800 tonight, but as Jason Mezrahi pointed out on today’s Win Daily podcast, it is going to be too challenging to roster Sale and then be able to utilize the bats you want from the Astros-Rockies matchup in Coors Field. If you do want to get off the Coors line, though, and consider stacks with lesser priced bats such as the Reds or Phillies, then you may be able to find a way to go with Sale.

If you want to save some money in DFS Pitching tonight for hitting, then Danny Duffy ($7100) may be your answer. Cleveland is 28th in team batting over the past week and now may be a good time for Duffy to catch them at home. Jason will be very happy to see me endorsing Duffy after I have given him so much of a hard time for recommending him in the past. But as erratic as Duffy can be, he will save you some salary tonight if you want those Coors bats. Duffy has allowed three earned runs or less in three of his last four starts so I will risk him as the GPP play.

Cal Quantrill ($5000) is returning to the San Diego rotation to actually try and help the Padres avoid a home sweep by the Giants. Quantrill’s ERA as a starter is 5.23 and the Giants have won three straight games while scoring in double digits each time. But if you want to make a bold DFS Pitching move to save some cash, we have seen the San Francisco lineup flame out often this season.

If you want to pivot off Sale and still have a top DFS Pitching option, especially for cash games, Walker Buehler is at $10,900 as the Dodgers host Arizona. He had allowed four earned runs in his previous four starts before his last outing, which was a trip to Coors Field. Buehler is 3-0 with a 3.05 ERA at home.

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day

I covered the Cubs-Pirates matchup in the DFS Pitching section, and it’s apparent I am not a fan of each pitcher. Considering how the Pirates are hitting recently, and the potent Cubs lineup presents longball threats against Archer, I’ll take both of the unders here. I believe both starters will get chased before they get the opportunities to reach the strikeout thresholds displayed below. Play these and more MLB Props now and get 100 percent bonus!
