DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (6/17) PREMIUM
We have a generous 12-game MLB slate on Monday night. The pricing structure on the pitching side is fairly flat with the highest salary coming in at $10,500 and numerous strong options in the $8-9k range. This sets up nicely to plug in two reasonably priced pitchers in this range and still have plenty of salary left over to roster a high-priced stud hitter or two to attack favorable matchups.
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.
Kenta Maeda (LAD): $9,000 vs. SF
Maeda is pitching at home against the Giants as huge Vegas favorite. He has been sensational at home this season with a 1.69 ERA while allowing just a .214 wOBA with a 29.7% strikeout rate in five starts. The Giants have struggled to hit right-handed pitching all season including the last 30 days where they have posted a .287 wOBA (29th) and a 77 wRC+ (28th). Maeda tossed five shutout innings in a previous start against the Giants earlier this season in San Francisco.
