DFS Pitching Prime Pick: Luis Castillo vs. Milwaukee Brewers
DraftKings $10,000, FanDuel $9,400
The Brewers have been really slumping lately and Castillo has been dominant all season. At home he holds a 1.92 ERA and a .160 BAA. Not to mention his 9.43 K/9. Castillo has been one of the biggest DFS Pitching surprises this year and I expect him to keep rolling in this one.
Brandon Woodruff @ Cincinnati Reds
DraftKings $9,400, FanDuel $9,800
Woodruff has the DFS Pitching upside to hang with the best in the league. He can go out and strike out a ton in any matchup. The Reds aren’t all that scary and I can easily see him strolling through this lineup very easily. Woodruff has been pretty solid against right handed bats (.221 BAA) so I’m not really worried about the majority of this lineup.
Matt Boyd @ Chicago White Sox
DraftKings $10,600, FanDuel $10,100
This is my pay up high tournament DFS Pitching upside play of the day. Boyd has been a little shaky of late, but he figured it out last time he pitched. Boyd always has that very high strikeout upside that we search for in tournaments, especially on the road. He turns it up a notch to get strikeouts as he holds a 12.90 K/9 on the road. I love him here against a White Sox team that strikes out a ton.
Hyun-Jin Ryu vs San Diego Padres
DraftKings $11,100, FanDuel $10,800
By some point you just have to realize the obvious in DFS Pitching and that is Ryu is dominant this season. At home this season he holds a 0.94 ERA and a 9.05 K/9. He has been baseball’s best arm this year and against the Padres, who are always hit or miss, I have a strong feelings they’re going to miss in this one.
Won the FanDuel, 11K MLB Pickoff Single Entry Tournament in May of 2019. Started playing MLB DFS a couple years ago and have found success as mainly a cash game player. After playing season-long fantasy for five years I decided to give DFS a shot and have never looked back. Grinding all year around with MLB, NBA and NFL.
