Happy Saturday! We made it! Yesterday I was not able to drop an article, but I did drop my two favorite plays in the chat room. Gio Gonzalez and Joey Lucchesi both finished with 20+ DK points. Hopefully you are a part of the team and you saw that in slack!
I also want to give a shout out to Snoop for talking about Anibal Sanchez in slack as well who had a stellar game! These are the types of things that you need to be a part of!
Anyways, it’s 103 degrees in the Bay Area today and I am going to be drinking and swimming today…Fuck it. Hopefully winning some money today as well! Let’s dive in to the first pitcher that I like on today’s slate.
Now, I really like a few high priced pitchers today such as Cole (My top play) and Clevinger, but again this article is about finding the value arms so we can get allllllll the bats!
Homer Bailey vs Texas Rangers ($6,700 DK/$6,800 FD)
Bailey is literally coming off a shit game. He was lit up by the Astros and it was over very quickly, but this is a new day. He is getting the park upgrade and going against a Texas offense that I still don’t think is scary at all.
Right now Bailey is a -175 favorite and has an implied run total against at 3.54 and has dropped -0.13. I see the righty going under 10% owned and I get it, people are scared. Not us, we are going to attack this game today and watch him do some work! Texas has 25.3% K rate vs RHP and Bailey should see plenty of those today. Play Bailey today and welcome the savings he brings to the table!
Cal Quantrill vs San Francisco Giants ($6600 DK/$6,400 FD)
Quantrill is another young arm for the Padres that could do great things for this team in the future. I have watched his last few outings and I really like what I have seen so far.
The Vegas lines has Quantrill as a -132 favorite with implied run total against at 3.76 which has dropped -0.35. The Giants have a K rate vs RHP at 21.4% and I still won’t act like the Giants are actually a good team. Quantrill is another value arm that I believe can get the job done today vs this Giant’s team. Play in all formats!
Honorable mentions- Chase Anderson
I really don’t think you should get cute tonight with the other value arms. Perez is overpriced which I think most will flock to, but stay away.
