Note: I am in the process of moving, so creating videos will be difficult over the next few days. I will create text posts instead with my picks for each night. Commentary based on DraftKings strategy and scoring.
One guy that you need to get exposure to during a hot streak is Yasmani Grandal ($3500) . The time is now considering he is in one of his hot streaks, batting .371 in the L14. I expect the hot streak to continue when he faces Jerome Williams tonight who’s ERA is almost 6 1/2. He surrenders a ton of home runs and doesn’t strike out a lot of batter (5.1 per 9 innings). He will also receive a nice boost from Citizens Bank Park which surrenders 11% more HR than the league average to LHB.
One really interesting play is Kendrys Morales ($3900). He faces off with Justin Verlander who has been dealing as of late, but I need to see more than good starts after the terrible start to the season he has had. Morales is swinging it well, batting .300 in L14 and has hit JV well, with a .333 clip (8-24) with 3 doubles and a HR in his career.
One of my favorite things to do is buy on a stud who’s going up against an ace pitcher. The stud hitter is almost always underpriced and underowned. Jose Abreu ($4800) is that case tonight. He has been torching, batting .367 with 4 HRs in the L14. The even better factor is that he has been really good against Chris Archer in a small sample. That includes 5 hits (1 HR) in 9 ABs.
I always like to end with the best BvP numbers I can find. That honor goes to Edwin Encarnacion ($4100) tonight who has seen Phil Hughes a ton in his career. Edwin boasts a .350 average (14-40) with 4 doubles and a HR vs. Hughes in his career. I don’t even need to mention how insanely good this offense is right now and how everyone in it gets a boost.
