CASH STACKS

St. Louis Cardinals (Philadelphia Phillies - SP Zach Eflin)

At the moment, I am seeing 14 MPH winds blowing towards left field in the Philadelphia Phillies versus the St. Louis Cardinals game in Busch Stadium. This will give a significant advantage to right-handed batters with quick swings. Both opposing pictures are righties, therefore if you have the bat speed to catch up to the inside pitches of Eflin or Martinez, you should be able to produce with the long ball.. Busch Stadium allowed an average of .857 home runs per game last season. Interestingly enough, Busch Stadium also allowed the eighth-most triples on average at 1.60 per game. The weather and stadium are providing a solid hitting environment for both the Phillies and Cardinals tonight. Pointsbet.com has the O/U at 8.5. The Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals are an even split pick 'em. When you look at the starting lineups from both of these teams, only one team really has the type of rightie that I’m talking about. The St. Louis Cardinals are starting righties including Andrew Knizner, Tyler O’Neill, Paul DeJong, Nolan Arenado. Paul Goldschmidt, and Dylan Carlson. The Cardinals are my top stack of the day.

Other Cash Stack: Los Angeles Angels

GPP STACKS

Detroit Tigers (vs. Chicago White Sox - SP Lucas Giolito)

The Detroit Tigers are going up against Lucas Giolito and the Chicago White Sox. Giolito started the season with three amazing starts against the Cleveland Indians, the Seattle Mariners, and the Los Angeles. In his last start against the Boston Red Sox, he lasted one inning, allowing eight hits and seven earned runs off two home runs totaling -17.8 DK points. The question is, does Giolito come back with a solid effort against a Detroit team that has hit him well in the past? The Detroit Tigers are batting .264 in 122 at-bats against Giolito. Certain batters display solid averages including Candelario, Schoop, and Jones. The back end of the Detroit lineup is the exact opposite. Players like Robbie Grossman, Victor Reyes, Willi Castro, Miguel Cabrera, and Wilson Ramos are battling quite terribly against Giolito with multiple strikeouts each. Personally, I believe Giolito comes back strong against a Detroit Tigers team that has lost five in a row and six of their last seven. Giolito is in the perfect bounce-back spot. With that said, the Detroit Tigers do have potential and should be the lowest owned stack on the slate. The Tigers have not been scoring but if we know one thing about baseball, it’s that the averages tend to return to the mean. Either the Detroit Tigers beat up Lucas Giolito for his second horrific effort in a row, or Giolito strikes out 10+ Tigers putting him in the optimal lineup for GPP tournaments and cash games.

Seattle Mariners (vs. Houston Astros - SP Cristian Javier)

The NBC Sports Edge MLB optimizer has the Seattle Mariners projected for a high ceiling tonight against the Houston Astros. Seattle is playing better as of late but their main problem this season has been opposing left-handed pitchers. The Seattle Mariners are batting just .197 with 73 strikeouts over 223 at-bats against opposing left-handed pitchers. When the Mariners face right-handed pitching, they are batting .223 with 16 home runs over 507 at-bats. These numbers are not extremely impressive but noteworthy nonetheless. Some of our projections for the Seattle Mariners include Ty France for 11.6 DK points at a salary of $4,200 and Kyle Seager for 11.4 DK points at a salary of $4,000. These two players have been hitting the ball well as of late, Seager is averaging 7.9 DK points per game this season and over his last four games he’s hit two home runs, two doubles, and one triple. The man is on fire! Now for Ty France. France is averaging 10.1 DK points per game over his last 10 games. He has slowed down slightly as of late but his potential is still there. The right-handed second baseman has eight doubles and two home runs this season with 21 strikeouts over 79 at-bats. The Seattle Mariners are a solid play but don’t invest in a four-man stack here. France, Seager, and possibly one more Mariner is all of the exposure you need to grab as many fantasy points as necessary for this game.
