DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (7/15) PREMIUM
Monday night brings us a 10-game slate of MLB action. We have a game at Coors Field to consider, a few high-priced pitchers to choose between, and some potential weather issues that could screw everything up. So, keep a close eye on the weather reports leading up to game time and be ready to pivot to other options as needed, especially if the rain comes to Colorado.
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.
Lucas Giolito (CWS): $11,200 @ KC
The White Sox have been pulling back a little bit with Giolito prior to the All-Star break with his pitch counts coming in under 100 in four straight starts while his walk rate has increased. With the long break between starts, look for Giolito to be fresh for a favorable matchup against the Royals on Monday night in Kansas City. The Royals rank 23rd in wOBA (.309) and 22nd in wRC+ (91) over the last 30 days. Meanwhile, Giolito has shut down Royals hitters over his career with a .229 wOBA allowed with a 27.3% strikeout rate in 139 plate appearances.
