CASH GAME STACKS

Seattle Mariners (vs. Baltimore Orioles - SP Matt Harvey)

**Note: Monitor possible weather conditions.

POSTPONED

The highest over-under on the slate belongs to the Seattle Mariners at the Baltimore Orioles game tonight. The Orioles are slight favorites at -125 with a 9.5 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com. The Mariners will be facing SP Matt Harvey and the Orioles will be facing SP Justin Dunn. Harvey comes into this game with a 5.59 ERA and Dunn with a 5.79 ERA. Dunn allowed three runs off just one hit in his only start against the Chicago White Sox. His main problems were with control. Dunn walked eight batters over 4.2 innings pitched. Throughout the 2020 regular season, Dunn pitched fairly well with a 4.34 ERA over 45.2 IP striking out 38 total batters. He allowed low averages to both left-handed, and right-handed hitters. Harvey has pitched twice so far this season (both against the Boston Red Sox). His first start was not bad as he threw 4.2 innings allowing only two earned runs, striking out four batters over 86 pitches. His second start was not as impressive. In his second start, he lasted 5.0 innings allowing four earned runs off of seven total hits. Throughout Harvey’s two starts against the Red tonight against the aging Matt Harvey (who currently has reverse splits). With all of this said, we will be investing in the Seattle Mariners’ right-handed batters tonight. Right-handed batters who are DFS playable include Mitch Haniger, Ty France, Dylan Moore, Luis Torrens, & Evan White. I would expect the Seattle Mariners to be a popular investment for tonight’s seven-game DFS slate beginning at 7:05 pm ET.

Los Angeles Dodgers (vs. Colorado Rockies - SP Jon Gray)

The Los Angeles Dodgers are leading the league batting .285 as a team over 11 games played so far this season. The Dodgers also have 14 home runs which ranks seventh highest in the majors. Not only are the Dodgers seeing the ball well but they are not striking out. With a total of 91 strikeouts as a team so far this season, the Dodgers rank seventh-lowest in the league. The Los Angeles Dodgers are batting .297 against opposing right-handed pitching and .250 against opposing left-handed pitching. Tonight they face Colorado SP Jon Gray. They have seen Gray before and know what they are getting. Corey Seager is batting 9 for 24 (.375 BA) against Gray with three doubles and one home run. Other solid plays include Edwin Rios, Will Smith, Max Muncy, and Justin Turner. The Dodgers are favored by -270 with a 7.5 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com.

Other Cash Stack(s): Baltimore Orioles (vs. Seattle Mariners - SP Justin Dunn)

Top Plays: Mitch Haniger, Dylan Moore, Luis Torrens, Corey Seager, & Cedric Mullins

Top Value: Kyle Seager, Evan White, Ty France, Rio Ruiz, & DJ Stewart

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Philadelphia Phillies - (vs. New York Mets - SP David Peterson)

The Philadelphia Phillies are slight favorites at -125 with an 8.0 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com. New York Mets SP David Peterson has a 13.50 ERA so far this season over three games played (one game start). Although in small sample sizes, the Phillies have hit very well against Peterson. Rhys Hoskins has two home runs and two doubles in five at-bats against the left-handed Peterson, while Harper is batting 3 for 5 with a double, and Bohm is 1 for 3 with a home run. Also, Segura, Realmuto, and McCutchen have shown the ability to walk against Peterson. The Philadelphia Phillies are batting just .241 as a team over their first 345 at-bats. Tonight's game seems like a return to the mean (or average) game, meaning, the Phillies have been shockingly bad to average as of late. Tonight they'll return to “normal" MLB averages with a massive game against Peterson and the New York Mets.

Other GPP Stack(s): Detroit Tigers (vs. Houston Astros - SP Lance McCullers Jr.) & Colorado Rockies (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers - SP Dustin May)

Top Plays: Bryce Harper, Rhys Hoskins, & Alec Bohm

Top Value: Corey Dickerson, Akil Baddoo, Raimel Tapia, Wilson Ramos, & Ronald Torreyes
