DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Saturday (9/7) PREMIUM
With 12 games being played starting at 7ET, we’re going to key in on that slate. What’s fascinating about that is the fact that we have a bunch of noobs playing these contests. There will be more amateurs in these contests than ever before because there are so many new users signing up for football. That makes things very exciting for us regulars and it’s time to capitalize on this mistake made by the public.
Justin Verlander (HOU): $12,400 vs. SEA
It’s going to be tough to fade Verlander. The simple fact is, this is the best pitcher of our generation in the midst of yet another special season. What’s amazing is that he’s still doing it at the age of 36, pitching to a 2.56 ERA and 0.77 WHIP. Those absurd numbers are backed up by a 35 percent K rate, which is simply one of the best marks in baseball. That’s truly scary for a bad offense like this, with the Mariners ranked 28th in K rate, 20th in OBP and 25th in xwOBA. That’s why Verlander and the Astros enter this matchup as a -440 favorite.
