Tuesday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

A middle-tier pitcher, Jordan Montgomery, and bargain hurler, Bryce Elder, represent my favorite cash game pairing on DraftKings. Further, Montgomery's my favorite cash game option on FanDuel. In an exciting twist, I think paying up for aces Kevin Gausman and Brandon Woodruff represents a high-upside GPP move tonight.

Cash Game Recommendations:

Jordan Montgomery (NYY) vs. TEX
Montgomery's locked in. According to FanGraphs, over his last seven starts totaling 34.1 innings, he's spun a 3.15 ERA, 3.68 xFIP, 4.00 SIERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 26.2 K%. Are his numbers elite? No, they're not entirely on that level.

Still, they're rock-solid, and he has a cushy matchup tonight. The Rangers rank 29th in wRC+ (80) against southpaws. Also, Betting Pros lists the Yankees as monstrous -290 favorites. Add it all up, and I'm content spinning down to Montgomery, saving cap space for boppers in cash games.
