DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (8/6)

Corey Seager is obliterating righties this season

There is a solid group of high-priced aces on Tuesday’s full 15-game MLB slate. There are two that stand out due to their matchup and salary compared to the rest of them and I find myself wanting to roster them both with very few cheap options that instill much confidence. So, it looks like a night to spend up for pitching, luckily there are plenty of strong value bats to make it work.

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 Wheeler (NYM): $10,600 vs. MIA
Wheeler leads the way with a cushy matchup pitching in Miami against the Marlins. Over the last 30 days, the Marlins rank dead last against right-handed pitchers in wOBA (.281) and 29th in wRC+ (75), while also striking out at a 25.3% clip (5th). Wheeler has had a lot of success against Marlins hitters over his career allowing a .271 wOBA with a 30.4% strikeout rate in 92 plate appearances. He is also a big Vegas favorite as you would expect.
