We bounced back in a solid way yesterday as after filtering with a GPP takedown with our “Early Only” lineup, we had a solid 148.5-point performance in the “Main” contests last night that had us cashing in both our GPP’s & 50/50’s!
We have an 8-game slate tonight that starts at 7:05 PM and let’s take a look at our initial FanDuel lineup!
I’m going to currently stay away from the MIN/PHI game as it’s looking like that one is headed to a rainout. As of right now, this is the only game that should be affected by the weather.
On the mound, I’m going with Shane Bieber who is coming off a solid first season with the Indians and has a great match-up against a Toronto Blue Jays team that has really struggled offensively this season. Bieber has great control of his pitches and can pile up some K’s as he posted a 9.26 K/9 ratio last year with the help of a solid slider. Toronto has been really bad against RHP’s and this is a match-up I’m willing to exploit tonight.
On the offensive side, I’m liking a stack of Atlanta Braves at home against Pablo Lopez. We’re currently stacking Ronald Acuna Jr., Nick Markakis, and Dansby Swanson.
We’re paying up for some big bats in LAA in Justin Bour & Mike Trout as they go up against Lance Lynn. Lynn relies heavily on his fast-ball which both Bour and Trout should be able to handle.
I think Arizona has some nice value tonight and I’m going with both Jarrod Dyson & Eduardo Escobar in their match-up against Rich Porcello. Porcello is a solid pitcher, but he can give up HR’s.
Rounding out the team will be Jose Peraza as I like him hitting out the 6-hole for the Reds for a price at just $2,800.
As always, I will make any necessary updates due to confirmed lineups, weather, etc. I will do my best to update the post but if it’s a last-second update, it’s easier for me to post that with an image on Twitter (@BrettCU05).
