My full lineup:

SP: Noah Syndergaard $59

2B: Jason Kipnis $17

3B: Travis Shaw $14

Syndergaard has a 1.96 ERA with a 53:3 K:BB ratio over 36.2 innings at home this season, and the Mets are big favorites (-175) Wednesday. Thor sure seems like he’s worth paying for...After a dominant beginning to the year (he had a 2.72 ERA and a 0.78 WHIP over the first six starts), Smyly has slumped badly of late (he has a 7.76 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP over his last six starts). Still, the skills are there, and he’s at home (five of his last six starts have come on the road).

Ramirez is on pace for 90 RBI despite scuffling, and he’s hitting in Fenway and extremely cheap (there are 25 more expensive first basemen Wednesday)...Kipnis has a .282/.347/.476 line against right-handers this year, and Ian Kennedy has allowed 14 homers over 71.0 innings...Shaw owns a .932 OPS at home and faces a righty and isn’t costly at a modest $14.

Anderson has been hitting leadoff and gets a bad pitcher and is almost a must start at just $9 at a thin shortstop position...Moss has a 1.057 OPS with 15 homers over 121 at bats against righties this season, and Collin McHugh has been extremely hittable...Davis sports a .286/.315/.653 line against southpaws, hits much better at home and gets Derek Holland, who’s been hit pretty hard against RHB in 2016.

Good luck with your contests Wednesday.
