Here are my four favorite stacks for the early main slate today.
Washington: Jose Urena has a 5.08 road ERA with a .309 BAA. You can get good platoon advantages against him with Adam Eaton and Matt Adams, as both are $4100 on DraftKings. I will also be willing to spend the 55400 for Juan Soto.
Kansas City: The term “gas can” is all the rage in DFS vernacular right now, and no one represents it better than Nova, with his 16.36 home ERA and .436 BAA, He has been brutal against hitters from both sides. Alex Gordon (5000) and Adalberto Mondesi (5,700) are my favorites here, while I am also strongly considering Whit Merrifield (5,300) , Hunter Dozier (4,900) and Jorge Soler (4,200), plus Nicky Lopez (3,600) at the top of the lineup. My preferred way to go would be with Gordon and Mondesi to start with Dozier and Lopez providing some salary relief. But get exposure to all of these guys with multiple lineups.
Cincinnati: Nick Kingham has a 8.76 ERA and lefties have all four HRs against him. So Joey Votto will make a rare appearance in my DFS lineups for just 3700 and I will lock Jesse Winker (4000) in. Derek Dietrich (4900) will surely be good for some pop here, and I will also get pitcher Luis Castillo (10,700) in there for a rebound start.
Oakland: Trevor Cahill has a 6.81 ERA overall, and it is 8.71 in day games. Lefties have been particularly hard on Cahill, so Matt Olson is a definite play, and Jurickson Profar does his best work against LHPs. If Stephen Piscotty is back in the lineup, he is a must-play, as he has been crushing LHPs,, All three of these guys are 4000 and under, making this a very price friendly stack.
