The King’s DFS Pitching Picks for 6/19: Bring on Bassitt and Heaney



On the early slate, Gerrit Cole seems like the obvious choice at $11,400 on DraftKings against Cincinnati. The Reds are middle of the road in MLB in home strikeouts. Cole has 60 strikeouts in 40.1 road innings. He is the apparent cash game play even though you will have to work in some cheaper bats to fit him into your day or full slate lineups.

Blake Snell is your gusty GPP play at 9500 at the Yankees. It’s obviously a big risk, but Snell is capable of dominating any opponent when he has his best stuff, and he has allowed three earned runs or less in seven of his last eight starts. He is not afraid of the Bronx, as last month he held the Yanks to one run in six innings while striking out nine in a no-decision at Yankee Stadium.

Zach Eflin (9100) is cheaper than Cole and may be just a tad safer than Snell. He has allowed three earn runs while striking out 15 in two starts since coming off the IL. Washington is 18th in home batting, and the lineup is less scary than the Yankees one that Snell has to face. It’s either the better pitcher in Snell vs, the slightly better matchup for Eflin. I would prefer Snell in a tournament but it’s close.

Chris Bassitt has to be your only choice for a second DK starter and may be the best choice on the day slate for combination  of value at 8000 and a vulnerable opponent, as he hosts the Orioles. Baltimore is 27th in road batting and Bassitt has allowed more than three earned runs in a game once this season. You do have to hope for higher K numbers here, but it’s possible you could just enough with a good chance of a victory.

On the night slate, but you definitely have to consider Andrew Heaney at $8500 at Toronto. He already has a pair of 10-strikeout games since coming off the IL and the Blue Jays are Top 7 in the American League in home strikeouts. The lineup looks more formidable than it did earlier in the season but it’s still a viable matchup for Heaney, who has looked good in two of three turns since coming back. He should get good run support against Aaron Sanchez for a possible victory.

Lucas Giolito (11,300) is the obvious standout and cash pitcher of the night against the Cubs. Right now, I do not care who Gioloto is facing, he is the top pitcher on the slate when he is listed among the probables.

Zack Greinke is a GPP play at 9000, as Colorado has been the second-best hitting team in the Majors over the past week. You may think they are less threatening away from Coors, but the Rox have scored five or more runs in six of their last seven road games. Their lineup is clicking regardless of venue.

Rich Hill (10,300) faces San Francisco at home, and the Giants are 25th in road batting. Hill has a 2.61 home ERA with 33 strikeouts in 31 innings. Hill is also starting to shed concerns about length, as he has worked seven innings in two of his past three starts. He is the best cash game play if you don’t want to spend up for Gioloto against a better lineup.

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day

Our experts have been terrific when pinpointing Monkey Knife Fight plays in our premium chat rooms. Tonight, I will take my shot in the Over/Under in the Angels/Jays matchup, locking in Heaney for over 6.5 strikeouts, Mike Trout easily over 1.5 hits plus walks, and considering Aaron Sanchez has not gone over four Ks in five of his past six turns, I’ll take the under on 4.5 strikeouts. Get in against Sanchez now and get 100 percent bonus!
