FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (6/25) PREMIUM
Monday was a fantastic DFS day for yours truly and we’re going to look to build off of that momentum here. One thing that’s annoying about this slate is the fact that the Yankees face a bad lefty. That’s a scary thought against all of these righty mashers and it’s going to be critical to pick the right ones for your lineup!
Max Scherzer (WSH): $12,200 at MIA | Gerrit Cole (HOU): $11,500 vs. PIT
Both Gerrit Cole and Max Scherzer are superb options with their fantastic matchups, so we’re just going to recommend both and let you pick which guy you want. Let’s start with Scherzer, as he’s simply been the best pitcher in the league over the last five years. In fact, Mad Max has a FIP south of 3.00 since joining the Nationals, while providing a 32 percent K rate in that span. That doesn’t even take into consideration that he faces the Marlins, who rank last in runs scored, OPS, and wOBA. Cole really isn’t far behind, pitching a 2.54 xFIP this season while leading the league with a 38.2 percent K rate. That’s simply absurd and he also gets to face a Pirates team that ranks 20th in runs scored, 21st in xwOBA, and 24th in xSLG. That’s why Cole enters this game as a -270 favorite while Scherzer is a -230 favorite.
