DFS Pitching for 6/6: Ride ’til the Wheels Fall Off

Early Slate Pitching;

Zach Wheeler vs. San Francisco Giants

DraftKings – $10,500, FanDuel – $10,200

Wheeler has been a mystery and-a-half this season. In one start Wheeler is
dominant and then in the next outing he blows up. So far this season Wheeler
has been major reverse splits and I don’t mind that against the Giants. With
the better bats of Panik and Belt being left-handed, that helps neutralize some
of the danger. Against left-handed hitters this season Wheeler has a .217 BAA
and a 11.74 K/9. We know the upside Wheeler has, and he has shown it this
season with massive fantasy games. The Giants have strikeouts up and down this
lineup and I expect nothing less than an eight spot from Wheeler. He’s my stud
across all platforms.

Brandon Woodruff vs. Miami Marlins

DraftKings – $8,900, FanDuel – N/A

The Marlins are somehow hitting out of their minds these last two days. They
dropped 16 runs on Tuesday and eight on Wednesday. That was insane for the high
school squad they have. They get the high upside wild card in Woodruff in this
one and I think they will return to form. Woodruff is way better against right
handed bats, to a tune of a .213 BAA and a 10.21 K/9. The Marlins lean right-handed
heavy and will have much trouble getting across the plate.

Punt Option; 

Miles Mikolas vs Cincinnati Reds 

DraftKings – $6,700, FanDuel – $7,800

There isn’t much to say here either than the pay down options are dreadful
and Mikolas is the best choice. He is much better against right-handed bats. The
only “dangerous lefty” I’m scared of is Joey Votto, and he hasn’t been too
scary this season.

Main Slate;

Patrick Corbin @ San Diego Padres

DraftKings – $10,300, FanDuel – $10,900

I don’t know what happened with Corbin in his last start, but I’m gonna give
him a pass. Corbin has been kind of up-and-down this season, but against this
Padres team that can strike out with the best of them I’ll take the chance. I
know Corbin has been horrible on the road, but he gets an amazing park. His
strikeout numbers have been better on the road (10.47 K/9) and I don’t see any
reason why he can’t touch that number in this matchup.

Joey Lucchesi vs. Washington Nationals

DraftKings – $9,000, FanDuel – $8,200

With the lack of quality options available, I’m gonna take a shot with
Lucchesi. I really like what he’s been doing in his last couple starts. He has
gone at least six innings with five or more strikeouts in each of his last
three starts and has only given up 10 total hits. The Nationals can strike out
a ton and go ghost in weird spots, and in this pitcher’s ballpark I don’t see
any reason why that can’t happen here.
