DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (8/12)

Don’t miss out on exposure to Coors Field tonight

Monday starts off the week with a solid eight-game MLB slate on DraftKings. Finding bats that you will want to roster is no problem at all with a game at Coors Field and plenty of pitchers to attack. However, determining which pitchers to slot in is another story, so it could be a night to prioritize bats and go cheap (I mean really cheap) with your second pitching slot.

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.

Pitchers

Zack Greinke (HOU): $10,700 @ CWS
Greinke’s Astros debut didn’t go as well as hoped as he surrendered five runs in six innings with only two strikeouts against the Rockies in Houston. He did pick up a win thanks to the powerful Astros offense and he should get another victory on Monday in a very favorable matchup with the White Sox in Chicago. The White Sox rank dead last in wOBA (.256) and 29th in wRC+ (57) against right-handed pitching over the last 30 days. They also have the highest strikeout rate in the league (29.7%) versus righties during that stretch. Greinke should be a fixture in almost all of your lineups.
