FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (5/20)

At this point, we might as well lock in the Astros’ stack every day

I’m filling in for Elliott today to provide you my cornerstone plays of the day and the top pitching options. It is a smaller eight-game slate with a few aces to choose between and enough gas cans on the mound that you should have no trouble finding enough value in the lineup to afford an ace if you want. I’ve got a different plan, however.

Pitcher Analysis

With Patrick Corbin (@ NYM) and Chris Paddack (vs ARI) as options, you can bet on 70% of the ownership ending up with one of them. While both are quality plays, you can’t stack the Astros while squeezing in an ace’s salary as well. Some will turn to Mike Soroka (@ SFG), Luke Weaver (@ SDP) or even the blazing Jake Odorizzi (@ LAA) but we still haven’t cut enough money for my liking because I also want exposure to the Rangers against Mike Leake. Truly, I’d rather fade all of those quality pitchers than fade the prized lineups today with a combined implied total over 12 runs. Guys, that is like a Coors Field game on steroids. Give me Brad Peacock at $7,800 and I’ll see you in the green.
