Marco Estrada, SP, at Atl (Wisler), $41: The Blue Jays are the biggest favorites on the board Thursday (-210), and Estrada is reasonably priced despite facing a Braves team that’s scored the fewest runs in MLB this season.
Tanner Roark, SP, vs. Mia (Cosart), $32: He’s cheap and owns a 2.48 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP over 145.1 innings at home during his career. The Nationals are the second-biggest favorites on the board Thursday (-190) yet 10 pitchers are more expensive than Roark in a day in which there are just seven evening games.
John Jaso, C, vs. Bal (Tillman), $11: He remains undervalued hitting atop the Rays’ lineup and owning a .379 OBP on the year.
Albert Pujols, 1B, at Min (Milone), $17: He has the platoon advantage and sports a .409/.435/.727 career line over 22 at bats against Tommy Milone.
Brian Dozier, 2B, vs. LAA (Santiago), $18: He’s facing a lefty in Hector Santiago who’s yielded a whopping 22 homers in 123.2 innings against RHB this season.
Miguel Sano, 3B, vs. LAA (Santiago), $17: He’s been one of the best hitters in all of baseball since getting called up and is facing a southpaw.
J.J. Hardy, SS, at TB (Moore), $9: He’s super cheap, and Matt Moore has allowed a .386 BAA and a 2.22 WHIP when facing RHB this season.
Bryce Harper, OF, vs. Mia (Cosart), $25: Seems like you have to go with the clear MVP favorite in the NL this year who’s sporting a .349/.482/.719 line against RHP. Harper has four homers over his last three games.
Mike Trout, OF, at Min (Milone), $21: He owns a .399 OBP against LHP this season and remains one of the best players in baseball. So this price seems like a pretty huge bargain.
Steven Souza, OF, vs. Bal (Tillman), $8: He strikes out too much but is back healthy and is an extremely affordable option for someone with 30/30 type upside over a full season.
