FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (7/4) PREMIUM
Happy Wednesday DFS players, and Happy Fourth of July. If there was ever a better day to celebrate America’s past time, I don’t know what it is. There are two main options at starting pitcher tonight between Trevor Bauer and Gerrit Cole, and not much of a reason to deviate from them. There are a few decent opportunities for offensive stacks in the main slate, especially with left-handed Giants at Coors Field. The weather looks like it will not be an issue tonight, but be sure to check the lineups to account for injuries or resting players. Let’s take a look at some lineup picks you should consider for tonight’s main slate on FanDuel to get an edge on your competition.
Gerrit Cole (HOU): $11,500 @ TEX
The Texas Rangers are the second worst team in the American League, and third worst in the majors, against right-handed pitching. As a team, Texas is batting .233/.320/.394 with 591 strikeouts. Only the Chicago White Sox hold a worse strikeout record in 2018 in the AL. Gerrit Cole makes for a slam dunk option Wednesday as he is as close to a sure thing this season as you can get. The Houston righty holds a 2.50 ERA with a 2.99 FIP this season with a 12.17 K/9. This matchup stacks up about as well as you could hope for. Don’t overthink this one and toss Mr.Cole in your lineup.
