FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (8/12) PREMIUM
It’s another Monday, which means another big evening slate on FanDuel. We’ve got eight games on the featured slate highlighted by Arizona at Colorado, which has the potential to be a classic nutty Coors Field game. Outside of that matchup, only Boston at Cleveland and Cincinnati at Washington have double-digit totals, both clocking in with a 10.0 O/U.
Joey Lucchesi (SD): $7,600 vs. TB
Lucchesi may not draw the typical cakewalk matchup we like to target with starting pitchers, but there is some big upside in using him against the Rays. Tampa Bay is tied for MLB’s third-highest strikeout rate against left-handed pitching this season at a whopping 26.2%. Lucchesi has upped his strikeout game in the second half as well, collecting 27 Ks in 26.1 innings. He also has massive home/road splits with a 2.71 ERA in Petco Park this season. While most will flock to Zack Greinke or Eduardo Rodriguez, Lucchesi provides sneaky strikeout potential in a good situation.
