DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Saturday (8/24) PREMIUM
Saturdays are always a fun day for DFS because games are spread throughout the day. Our goal here at FantasyPros is to give you plays from the biggest slate, so I’ll focus on the night games. There are 12 games on this evening slate, which is a pretty sizable schedule. With that in mind, let’s get to the best cash-game pitcher of the night. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @Bartilottajoel.
Mike Clevinger (CLE): $11,800 vs. KC
Clevinger is the most expensive pitcher on the board, and rightfully so. This dude is absolute nails, and it’s amazing just how much of a strikeout pitcher he’s become. A 3.04 ERA and 1.15 WHIP dating back to last season is impressive in itself, but the 105 Ks in 75.2 innings pitched this season is downright ridiculous. That’s allowed him to accrue at least 23 DK points in 10 of his 13 starts this season. That becomes very attractive against the Royals, who rank 27th in runs scored, 26th in OBP, and 28th in OPS. Clevinger and the Indians also enter this matchup as a -360 favorite.
