Happy Tuesday! We have a huge slate today, I’m going to give you a few options that can help make your builds easier.

Gerrit Cole vs CWS ($12,700) Cole is the top pitcher on the slate and is an absolute cash lock. He is sitting at a -340 favorite with an implied run total at 2.26. The white sox strike out more than you think, which makes this play even better. The price is scary, but in cash he is well worth it.

Matthew Boyd vs Seattle ($10,400 on FD) ;$10,300 on DK) Boyd is a -158 favorite with an implied run total sitting at 3.57. He is going against a not scary Seattle lineup and this matchup should be beyond easy for him. The whole Seattle team pretty much strikes out a shit ton vs lefties and that should continue today. I normally don’t pay up for pitchers, but I believe Boyd is worth every penny.

Chris Sale vs Cle ($10,500 on FD) ($10,700 on DK) Sale is a -109 favorite with an implied run total sitting at 3.93. We saw old Chris Sale in his last outing vs LAA, but his MPH in his fastball has dropped which is concerning. Sale by no means is safe, but he has the upside to win to win you a GPP.

Jack Flaherty ($8,900 on FD) ($9,000 on DK) Big Jack might be my favorite play of the slate. He is coming off three amazing performances vs high powered offenses. Jack is a -240 favorite with an implied run total sitting at 2.92 and dropping. I’m locking him in tonight in all formats.

Brandon McKay vs San Diego ( $8,000 on FD) ($8,100 on DK) McKay is a -120 favorite with an implied run total sitting at 3.73. I really like his matchup tonight and I think he makes a perfect SP2. Padre hitters all strike out quite a bit vs lefties besides Hosmer/Naylor which I find interesting. I think McKay is a perfect pivot off May on DK.

Dustin May vs Miami ($5,800 on FD) ($7,500 on DK) So I know May will be chalk and I totally get that. But I think on DK he is the fade because of price and the fact that the Marlins don’t strike out a ton. I think May is a great play in cash, but I am going to take a shot and fade in GPP’s. He should get the job done, I am just afraid that his upside might not be there tonight.

Hopefully some of these picks help you tonight ! Make sure you give me a follow on Twitter @VGo07 and @DFSheadquarters. Make sure you get into our free football room! We are chasing $7 a week/ $15 a month /$40 for 3 months for all other premium content. Good luck!
