Matthew Boyd vs. Miami Marlins – $10,300 DraftKings, $9,500 FanDuel
On a shorter slate with only two studs, it’s a tossup for me between Boyd and Strasburg. I’ll take a good strikeout pitcher against the worst team on the slate here. Boyd has been a revelation this season, and I see his great start to the season continuing here. With a 10.59 strikeout per nine against right-handed bats this season, he should be able to rack up at least seven strikeouts in this one. The Marlins are a dreadful offense with no players to even worry about. Lock and load on FanDuel with a massive price discount to Strasburg.
Stephen Strasburg @ New York Mets – $11,100 DraftKings, $11,000 FanDuel
The Mets have been just mostly horrible offensively of late and Strasburg has been terrific this season. In his last start in New York he scored 34.6 DraftKings points and was completely dominant. With a 11.78 strikeout per nine on the season on the road, and the strikeouts up and down the Mets lineup, Strasburg should continue his dominance this season. I have no worry here for Strasburg, as he is the clear SP1 on DraftKings, but there is a decision between him and Boyd in Fanduel.
Trevor Richards @ Detroit Tigers – $7,500 DraftKings, $6,700 FanDuel
Down in this lower range it’s a crapshoot as there isn’t much to choose from. Richards get the best matchup of the lower range guys as he heads to Detroit. Richards has shown the ability to rack up a good amount of strikeouts and all I’m looking for here is 15-17 points and he pays off his price tag just fine.
