Monday's Starting Pitcher Strategy
Today's top-ranked pitcher has been absurdly good lately. The second-ranked pitcher is the best SP2 in cash games at DK. He's also a desirable selection in all game types at FD. The third listed pitcher is the riskiest. However, he offsets his risk with the most affordable salary in a high-upside matchup.
Cash Game Recommendations:
Nathan Eovaldi (TEX) at DET
Eovaldi has pitched out of his mind lately. According to FanGraphs, he's had a 0.86 ERA in his previous five starts, totaling a workmanlike 41.2 innings. The righty's 3.34 xFIP hasn't matched his sub-1.00 ERA. Nevertheless, it was rock-solid.
Eovaldi should stay hot in an excellent matchup today. The Tigers are 26th in wRC+ (85) against righties this season. And the betting info is good. Per Betting Pros, the Rangers are -165, and the game's total is 8.5 runs.
Monday's Hitter Strategy
The Rays are the backbone of DFS lineups on today's six-game slate. They have appealing hitters throughout their entire lineup. Jung, Mervis and Donovan are stellar one-offs from other teams to help round out lineups.
