FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (6/10) PREMIUM
We’ve got a robust nine-game main slate on FanDuel tonight, and with the weather warming up the expected run totals are climbing. Five of the nine games have expected totals of nine runs or more, while three of those games are expected to reach ten runs or more. And that’s without a line on WSH @ CWS, a game that will certainly be above nine runs and could be above ten given the quality of starting pitching in that game. There are tons of interesting bats to pick from on a slate like this, so let’s get to it.
Chris Sale (BOS): $11,800 vs. TEX
Sale’s rocky April is long behind him, and the lanky lefty has a 2.28 ERA, 1.84 FIP, and 8.7 K/BB ratio in seven starts since May 1. Those numbers are good even by Sale standards, and he’s averaging 53.14 FanDuel points per game during that stretch. He’ll get a chance to build on those numbers against Texas, who have an 86 wRC+ and .310 wOBA against left-handed pitching as a team this year. The Rangers are also known for their free-swinging ways, and have a 26.4% strikeout rate against southpaws. Sale has a 43% strikeout rate over his last seven starts, and a matchup with Texas should keep that K rate nice and healthy. If you’re paying up at pitcher today, it’s worth going all the way to the top for Sale.
