DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (6/18) PREMIUM
There are a bunch of high-priced aces on the mound Tuesday night for a 15-game MLB slate. However, I find myself dipping down a price tier on the hill to fill both of my pitching slots in cash games with a couple of hurlers in good spots. This opens up some salary to spend on bats that others might not have if they choose to roster one of the five-figure aces.
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.
Brandon Woodruff (MIL): $9,300 @ SD
Despite a salary $2,600 lower than Justin Verlander, Woodruff comes close to the Astros ace in my model on Tuesday night with his matchup against the Padres in San Diego. Woodruff gets a favorable park adjustment and faces a Padres offense that has a .280 wOBA (27th), 75 wRC+ (28th), and 26.2% strikeout rate (2nd) when playing at home against a righty this season. He has pitched well in three of his last four starts which has included two double-digit strikeout performances. Number three could be on the way Tuesday night in San Diego.
