DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (5/14) PREMIUM
While the start of the NBA Western Conference Finals and the NBA Draft Lottery will get quite a bit of attention Tuesday night, there is also a big MLB DFS slate with 12 matchups on the docket. This slate leads me to focus on paying up on the mound while getting my salary savings at the plate. There are three high-priced stud pitchers with big strikeout potential that I want to focus my cash game build around while filling in my lineup with a bunch of hitters under $4k.
As always, be sure to pay close attention to the lineups when they are released and monitor the weather leading up to game time. For reference throughout the season, be sure to bookmark our overview of MLB Park Factors and how to Use Weather to Your Advantage in MLB DFS.
Charlie Morton (TB): $10,500 @ MIA
While I’m highlighting Morton and Caleb Smith, Chris Sale could just as easily been written up as my third leg of high-priced aces to consider for your DFS lineups on DraftKings. That said, I actually like Morton slightly more with his favorable matchup against the Marlins. The Marlins have the highest strikeout rate (27.1%) in the league against right-handed pitching this season while they also rank dead last in wOBA (.262) and wRC+ (65). Morton has allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his eight starts this season while posting a 30.4% strikeout rate.
