Hi Everyone!

Happy Wednesday!

TRIAL FOR COMPUTER PICKS INCLUDING LIVE IN GAME BETTING ALERTS

We couldn’t get in the cash this afternoon, however, we plan on getting back on track tonight as we take a look at tonight’s MLB FanDuel “Main Slate” that features 11 games and starts at 7:05pm.

There are a few weather concerns for tonight, but for the most part, the majority of the games I’m targeting look somewhat safe.

I’m going to be doing a straight GPP lineup tonight!

On the mound, we’re going with value in Milwaukee’s Adrian Houser in his match-up agianst the St. Louis Cardinals. Houser has found has grove as a starter and has been lights out in his last two starts vs. WSH & TEX (13.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 14 K). Houser is holding opponents to a .249 average/.735 OPS and although he hasn’t fared well against St. Louis this season, I don’t mind taking a chance has I think he has solid upside against a Cardinals team that ranks just 21st in team batting average vs. RHP.

On the offensive end, we’re paying up for a monster 4-man stack of the Boston Red Sox in their match-up agianst the LHP Drew Smyly of the Philadelphia Phillies. Smyly had a couple nice starts when he first was acquired by the Phillies, however, he has started to look more like the pitcher that currently has a 7.09 ERA & 1.66 WHIP as over his last two starts he has given up 9 ER’s on 5 HR’s. Smyly is allowing opponents to post a .946 OPS agianst him on the season and actually has really struggled against LHB’s, allowing them to post a .338 average/.831 slugging %/1.228 OPS.

For the Red Sox, we’re going with Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Jackie Bradley Jr., & Rafael Devers.

Staying in this match-up, we’re going with some solid value in the Phillies Logan Morrison in his match-up against the RHP Rick Porcello of the Red Sox. Porcello has pitched better as of late, but it’s been a tough season for the veteran as he comes into this game with a 5.49 ERA & 1.41 WHIP while sporting a 1.61 HR/9 ratio. Porcello hasn’t fared that well agianst LHB’s this season, allowing them to post a .285 average & .831 OPS.

Morrison has just returned to action and is only getting his 2nd start of the season tonight, however, he has solid HR-upside and is career .300 hitter (12 for 40) with 2 HR’s agianst Porcello.

We’re paying up for Houston’s Alex Bergman as I love his match-up agianst the LHP Daniel Norris of the Detroit Tigers. Norris has allowed 5 HR’s in his last 11.2 IP and is allowing RHB’s to post a .292 average/.835 OPS. Bergman has posted a .319 average/1.059 OPS vs. LHB’s this season and is 4 for 6 lifetime with two doubles vs. Norris in his career.

We’re rounding out team with a 2-man stack of Kansas City Royals in their match-up against the RHP Aaron Brooks of the Baltimore Orioles. Brooks comes into this game with a 6.49 ERA & 1.43 WHIP and has allowed 27 ER’s in his last 5 starts (22 IP). Brooks is allowing his opponents to post a .284 average/.903 OPS on the season and comes into this game with a 2.20 HR/9 ratio.

For the Royals we’re going with Whit Merrifield & Nicky Lopez.
