Thames may be blazing, but Goldy is still the top play of the day

Tonight, we get a 7-game main slate filled with good pitching. This particular slate lends itself especially well to cash games, as two of the pitchers stand out as safe plays above the rest, but ownership won’t reflect that. Last week, our recommended lineup managed to cash in GPP contests even though Jon Gray left in the 4th inning with an injury. Many thanks are due to Travis d’Arnaud, Wilmer Flores and Marcell Ozuna who carried us with 66 points combined despite less than 10% ownership on every one of them.

We are looking at a potentially postponed game in Cincinnati with rain delays likely in the middle of the game so be very careful even though Wade Miley is fun to pick on. There is nothing else in the weather, including the wind, that should have much if any impact on the games. Let’s take a look at the lineup for tonight:
