FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (8/14) PREMIUM
With games spread all throughout the day, I’m going to focus on the night slate. While there are only six games this evening, it’s easily the largest in terms of prize pools. There aren’t many aces on the mound for this slate, and the top options are either expensive (Clayton Kershaw for $12,000 at MIA) or facing a difficult opponent (Aaron Nola vs. CHC). That’s why I’ve got a great value for you at pitcher…
Dillon Peters (LAA): $7,100 vs. PIT
I didn’t know anything about Peters a month ago, but he’s a pleasantly good value on this slate. The main reason why is because of Pittsburgh’s struggles against lefties. The Pirates currently rank 26th in runs scored and dead-last in both OBP and OPS against southpaws this season. That’s advantageous for a solid pitcher like Peters, who’s allowed three runs or fewer in all five of his starts. That’s led to a 3.45 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 24 percent K rate, which is all you can ask for from a player priced so cheaply in such a premium matchup. Peters and the Angels enter this game as a -130 favorite.
