Cody Bellinger, CHC vs. L.A.
DK ($5,300) FD ($4,600)
Dong call. Jon Lester on the road is not impressive with a 4.97 road ERA . Not to mention allowing all batters on the road to hit for a combined .257 BA. The real problem on the road has been the long ball, and this is what were looking for tonight out of a somewhat struggling Bellinger. You have to love a potentially low owned, superstar with upside. The Dodgers are favored by -185 with an 8.5 under/over.
Whit Merrifield DET at KC
DK ($4,000) FD ($3,500)
With a solid game last night (14 DK points), Merrifield finds himself in a nice spot tonight against Matthew Boyd, the very talented lefty who happens to own a 4.50 ERA in the month of June (two starts). Merrifield owns a career .429 BA in, wait for it, 30 at-bats. That’s consistency my friends. If you play any other Royals batters PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY ARE RIGHT-HANDED BATTERS as Boyd dominates lefties. The Kansas City Royals are slight underdogs with an 8.5 under/over.
Manny Machado, SD vs. COL
DK ($4,400) FD ($4,000)
So here’s the deal: Machado has been struggling over his last six games. But tonight in Coors Field, on a team that I will be stacking in the San Diego Padres, Machado becomes just as important of a play as Renfroe and Myers. Machado should see some great pitches tonight, depending on where he is batting in the lineup. Today‘s confirmed lineup is extremely important for the San Diego Padres! Check out Win Daily On Deck at 5 pm ET for the most updated info, including the confirmed Padres lineup.
Jonathan Villar, BAL vs. TOR
DK ($4,600) FD ($3,100)
Villar has exhibited major long ball potential against Stroman in 10 prior at- bats totaling one double, one triple and home run. Stroman has struggled as of late, allowing 6.39 ERA over his last two starts and lefties are batting .279 with five homers against Stroman in 159 at-bats. Also, Stroman has already seen Baltimore once this season and allowed a team BA of .391 to the O’s. With a 9 under/over in a great hitter’s park, this one is an easy lock for me.
Other option: Elvis Andrus
Hunter Renfroe, SD at COL
DK ($5,200) FD ($3,800)
Hunter Renfroe and Wil Myers: Lock and load please! These two players are batting a combined 16 for 37 with six home runs against Gray. He allowed five earned runs over 5.1 innings pitched with a .348 opponent BA in his last start to the N.Y. Mets. And this is an 11.5 under/over in Coors Field. If this is a hot day in Coors with any kind of wind, this could realistically be a home run derby. Even if this turns out to be chalk, don’t fade, this is a perfect spot!
Wil Myers, SD at COL
DK ($4,400) FD ($3,600)
Okay, I think this could get a little chalky because Myers and Renfroe both exhibit crazy impressive stats against opposing pitcher Jon Gray. These two players are batting a combined 16 for 37 with six home runs. Gray allowed five earned runs over 5.1 innings pitched with a .348 opponent BA. And this is an 11.5 under/over in Coors Field. Don’t think about this one too much,! Let’s just hope ownership stays low.
Charlie Blackmon, SD vs. COL
DK ($5,800) FD ($4,400)
Matt Strahm exhibits reverse splits, allowing a .375 BA to opposing lefties in 51 at-bats this season. Charlie Blackmon has been on fire in two of his last three games, averaging 22.7 FD points. Strahm has a tough task tonight keeping this ball in the park. I do NOT think he will have much success. Although I will say Strahm does pitch better at home somehow. Roster the left-handed batters against San Diego’s starter tonight as this should be a home run derby!
Okay guys, once again we’re going big or we’re going home. And what better game to select than the expected home run derby in Colorado between the Padres and Rockies. Let’s start with Gray and his strikeout prop. As I’ve mentioned, I do love the San Diego Padres tonight, therefore I believe Gray will have under 5.5 strikeouts. He does have the potential to take advantage of a strikeout prone offense but I don’t think he’ll have enough time in the game to hit 5.5 strikeouts. Next we have an easy one. As I’ve mentioned above, Manny Machado has been struggling but I do expect him to hit at least 1.5 runs plus hits. Even if it comes from a single and a run, I’m confident Machado hits the over here. The next prop with Eric Hosmer is another easy one for me. I believe Hosmer should get more than two hits tonight, therefore his prop at 1.5 hits plus walks should go over. Franmil Reyes has a tough prop, 2.5 total bases. Due to San Diego‘s expected total, Reyes should go over 2.5 bases. Wait to see if he’s batting first as he was last night. If so, I think you can be more confident on the over here. And last but not least a cookie, Charlie Blackmon will undoubtedly have more than 2.5 bases in this game.
