DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (5/21) PREMIUM
Another big Tuesday night slate with 14 games on the main DraftKings MLB slate. There are quite a few strong pitching options on the bump, but I’d recommend forgoing the five-figure salary aces and settle into the next tier of pitchers instead, so you have some money leftover for bats. That is because finding deep value at the plate is a challenge on this slate at some positions.
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.
German Marquez (COL): $9,200 @ PIT
Is Marquez pitching at home or on the road is just about the only thing you need to look at for the right-hander. Whenever he is on the road, then I have an interest in his elite stuff. This season he has posted a 2.55 ERA with a .223 wOBA allowed and a 26.7% strikeout rate on the road in five starts. Last season he sported a 2.95 ERA with a .265 wOBA allowed and a 28.3% strikeout rate away from Coors Field. He’ll take his skills on the road Tuesday night as the Rockies visit the Pirates in a pitcher-friendly environment. The Pirates rank in the bottom third of the league in wOBA and wRC+ against righties this season.
