Dom Draftkings Picks 6/1
11 games on the slate tonight, let's get it.
SP: Jon Lester 9.9K
The top pick tonight is Max Scherzer going against the Phils, but for 13.2K and his shakiness on the road, I'll defer to Lester. Last night, Arrieta lost his streak against the Dodgers. However, you shouldn't let that fool you tonight. Lester has been solid all year for the Cubs, and how many games have the Cubs lost in a row this year? Not too many, so his chance to snag a W I'd say is even higher than Scherzer tonight. Could easily be a 20-point pickup this evening.
Travis Shaw 4.2K
I smell a home run coming off of this guy's bat tonight. The way the Red Sox have been going they could put a hurt on Mike Wright tonight. Shaw is also hitting .321 against RHP with 6 homers, as opposed to his .127 average against LHP with just 1 homer. Lock him in.
George Springer 4.5K
Springer has been hot as of late, going 6 for 8 over the past two games, with a homer and 5RBI. Tonight he faces the right-hander Robbie Ray, who has a mediocre 4.67ERA in 2016. Out of Springer's 12HRs this season, 10 have come off of righties. This kid is also always a threat to steal and put up runs to rack up his total points. Could be poised for a big one tonight.
VALUE PLAY: Javier Baez 3K
This might be a stretch due this kid is due for a good 'ol yabo and his strikeout numbers haven't been bad recently. Worst case scenario he's a cheap filler to get somebody better in your lineup, best case he homers and we all win money.
Good Luck! And don't forget to use my referral code!
