Happy Monday, yeah actually gross…Monday’s suck. Either way let’s make this Monday better by winning some money!
Hopefully you were in the premium room this weekend because I was dropping straight gem after gem! If you are not a part of the team just yet, join today! $7 a week, $15 a month, or $40 for 3 months. It is just way too cheap, but for the amount of information we are giving out daily. Anyways let’s talk about this slate.
Chase Anderson ($7,200 DK/$7,200 FD) vs. Cincinnati Reds
Anderson has had two back to back starts at home where he has exceeded value. On this slate, we have a ton of high priced pitchers that are way overpriced, so we need to talk about some value arms that will help us get the bats we need. Chase Anderson is that guy!
The one con that I have about him is the fact that he hasn’t gone more than five innings his last two starts, but he is still getting the job done. Today, I believe this continues. I am leaning more towards GPP with this play due to the fact that his innings seem to be limited, but if they loosen the leash then he could be part of the optimal lineup tonight.
Vegas line as of now for Chase
Reds implied run total 4.37, but the implied run total has dropped -0.23. Since it is only 10:20 my time as I write this, I am only going to assume the total will continue to drop. In that case, Chase is one of my favorite value arms on the slate.
My second pitcher, I struggled with just a tad. A few arms that I like, but are just super risky! But hey, in my articles I don’t write up the chalk. I like to give the arms that will go lower owned and save you a ton of money! So before I write my second pitcher, I will give you a few honorable mentions and even a few high priced guys.
Adrian Sampson- Too cheap and Seattle isn’t good. The problem I have is that DraftKings is going to ruin this play, but suggesting him in their article. I always fade when that happens, DraftKings has a curse when it comes to writing up stacks and pitchers. So for me, wait and see approach.
Robby Ray – Cash
Eduardo Rodriguez – gross price, still in play
Lambert- if you really want to get risky. He is just toooooo cheap and if you get 10 DK points, you’re happy.
Trevor Richards- GPP only
Ok, I named a few suggestions but a ton can change throughout the day. If there is one thing I can teach you guys is to LISTEN TO VEGAS! They will help when it comes to choosing pitchers and stacks. Now let’s look at the second pitcher.
Trevor Williams ($6,500 DK/$6,200 FD) vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Yeah, his last two outings have been absolute shit against the Cubs. A ton of the box score watchers will see that and say, uh nawwwwww. Today, we go back to the well and take this value!
Cardinal’s offense still isn’t very good, regardless of what they have done lately. They did most of their damage versus Cincinnati’s bullpen which sucked since we played Roark and Mahle, but it still doesn’t scare me away from Williams today.
Williams has a pretty good history against the Cardinals – last three starts vs St. Louis-29 DK/11 DK/ 21 DK. Looks pretty damn good to me. Now he is going against a hurt Cardinals team who is going to have to travel to Pittsburg to get the job done. Let’s take a look at what Vegas is saying.
4.79 team total, but had dropped -0.44 since the lines opened.
I have Williams as my 6th favorite pitcher, behind the high priced arms.
Williams is a perfect value play today that will allow you to get alllllll the big bats you want!
Hopefully these two arms help you with your builds tonight. Make sure you give me a follow on twitter @VGo07 and ask me any questions you may have.
