Tonight, there are nine games scheduled on DraftKings main-slate. There is a good mix of pitching options along with great hitting stacks. As usual, Coors Field will garner heavy ownership, carrying an 11.5 game total. This game features two mediocre starters in the best hitting environment. Let’s dive into these games to discover some of the best pitchers and hitters going this evening.

Pitchers

Garrett Richards (LAA): $8,900 vs. MIN
The Angels ace is off to an incredible start thus far and there is no reason to doubt another strong outing. Getting up to a 30% K rate, Richards has shown great command while sustaining his velocity. The Twins are not an intimidating team for Richards to take on and they will now see a negative park shift in LA. At a very reasonable price, lock-in the Angels starter with confidence. He is arguably the most talented pitcher throwing tonight.

Ian Kennedy (KC): $6,500 @ BAL
Possibly more of a GPP option, Ian Kennedy is an interesting pivot. There are expensive hitters going tonight who should be taken into consideration and paying down with at least one starter will be necessary for exposure. Kennedy will give up a long ball or two, but his fantasy production upside at this price is hard to pass on. With an increased K% against a team who strikeouts out a lot, the floor is high enough for Kennedy to be considered. Baltimore will look to a struggling Chris Tillman, which should also leave the Royals starter lined up for the win.
