Tuesday's Starting Pitcher Strategy
The first two pitchers on the table have tantalizing ceilings. However, the top option is safer with a cupcake matchup, rendering the second pick an attractive pivot in GPPs. The third and fourth pitchers have compelling cases for usage tonight, too.
Cash Game Recommendations:
Mitch Keller (PIT) vs. OAK
Keller was rock-solid down the stretch last year but has become a legitimate monster this season. He's also in outstanding form. In his last five starts spanning 34.0 innings, Keller has had a 3.18 ERA, 2.42 xFIP, 0.94 WHIP, 3.0 BB%, 33.6 K% and 30.3 CSW%.
Keller should look like an ace tonight in a dreamy matchup. The Athletics are 29th in wRC+ (78) and have a 26.5 K% against righties this year. Oakland also has the worst offense over the last 14 days, tallying a 47 wRC+ and 26.3 K%. As a result, per Betting Pros, the Pirates are -240, and the game's total is 8.5 runs.
Tuesday's Hitter Strategy
The Giants and Dodgers should smash tonight and have some viable value options besides their highest-salaried options. But gamers also shouldn't sleep on the Diamondbacks in tournaments.
