MLB DFS Pitching and Prop Picks by the King for July 23



Stephen Strasburg gets Colorado at home and is not outrageously priced at $10,700 on DraftKings. The strikeout upside is certainly there and the Rockies are 21st in team batting over the past week. He looks like a strong MLB DFS Pitching cash game play and can fit into your salary structure in a GPP as well.

Has anyone noticed Dakota Hudson has not allowed more than three runs in 16 consecutive starts? There is not high strikeout promise, but you could get a lengthy enough start out of him and he is well worth the value play at just $6500. The Pirates are 27th in team batting over the past seven days. He could also help you roster Trevor Bauer against Toronto on a two-pitcher site. Bauer is at $11,400 and is an obvious strong cash game play and utilizing Hudson could also help you fit him in for your GPPs. The Cardinals starter will offer MLB DFS Pitching flexibility whether you want to save money for Bauer or bats.

Chris Sale (11,000) also obviously deserves strong MLB DFS Pitching consideration after coming off a terrific turnaround start in his last outing. Tampa Bay is third-worst in team batting over the past week. Sale is slightly cheaper than Bauer and has provided renewed confidence in him. He’s a bit more pricey than Strasburg, but not by much. Among Strasburg, Bauer and Sale, I might end up in the middle price wise with the Boston starter.

Aaron Nola is going to be the ultimate MLB DFS Pitching cash play at $10,100 against the Tigers and should be widely owned. I will likely pivot off him in GPPs because he should be so heavily rostered. That’s where I will likely go to Sale over Strasburg and Bauer.

Chris Paddack is in the same MLB DFS Pitching conversation as Nola at $10,300 coming off a terrific start and facing a Mets team that was mostly held down this past weekend at San Francisco. But the Mets offense is not as good a matchup as the Detroit one. Paddack will be my second cash game selection and I might take him in GPPs over Nola.

In the same game, Jason Vargas can save you salary  at $6600, as he has consistently held opponents to three or less runs for most of the season. But he may have a hard time getting in line for the win over Paddack.

Caleb Smith appears to be the friendliest of the better quality MLB DFS Pitching options at $9400 against the White Sox, who are middle of the pack in hitting over the past week. That makes three strong cash game picks for tonight in Nola, Paddack and Smith. But I slightly prefer the other two based on their matchups. If it comes down to a decision where you simply don’t want to eliminate a key bat from your lineup, go with Smith. But getting a win may be hard when you consider he is being supported by an offense that was just shut down by Ivan Nova. It’s not an easy decision between Nola, Paddack and Smith.

Yu Darvish ($9,200) has started to turn things around lately, but the Giants are hot and are not a team that I want to target with my pitchers with other quality options on the board. The Cubs are only 17th in MLB in road batting in a pitcher’s park, so Madison Bumgarner is a MLB DFS Pitching GPP Play at $9000.

The King’s Top MLB DFS Pitching GPP Plays on DraftKings in order of preference: Sale, Strasburg, Bauer, Bumgarner, Smith, Paddack.

Value Plays: Hudson, Vargas

Top Cash Game Plays: Nola, Paddack, Smith

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day

I will definitely go with the over on Smith when you consider the White Sox are sixth in the American League in strikeouts. But Abreu is hitting .300 in July and .304 at home, so I will take the over on him, too. If you want to cash in on this prop prediction tonight, play it here and get 100 percent bonus.
