Happy Wednesday! What a weird trade deadline today has been. Grienke to the Astros? Gallen to the Diamondbacks? Gennett to San Francisco? Weird, just weird. Anyways we have a small slate tonight and I have some options for you to help build some killer lineups!

Last night Canning was a fucking stud and finished with 28 DK points and Happ well, sucked. Anyways, let’s get back on track tonight and make some money!

I will be honest, tonight’s slack is tricky. It almost feels like a spend up night, but I have two options that are cheap that could help with opening up salary.

Brett Anderson vs Milwaukee Brewers ($5,700 DK/$7,100 FD)

I get it, the Brewers are good. That lineup is pretty good up and down with Hiura, Yelich, Moose, etc. Vegas on the other hand likes Anderson tonight. He is a -127 favorite with an implied run total of 4.06, it has gone up 0.07 which in my mind can make him risky.

Regardless, Anderson is super cheap on DraftKings and I think he can get us to where we need him to be. The lefty allows you to pay up for your SP1 and I’m totally down to take a flier to get deGrom as well. Don’t expect an insane game from him, but let’s hope he gets us 15-18 DK points.

Now the second pitcher I wanted to write up is close to 10k. It’s one of those things I hate to endorse, but I firmly believe it’s a pay up slate. So let’s talk about an ace who to me is a tad underpriced.

Mike Minor vs Seattle Mariners ($9,900 DK/$9,500 FD)

Minor is a -165 favorite and has an implied run total against him at 3.86. The Mariners strike out 27% of the time versus lefties, which Minor can absolutely take advantage of. If you are looking to stay under the 10k range at pitching, I think Minor is your guy.
