Pablo Lopez (MIN) vs. OAK
Pablo Lopez is in fine form recently, and his stats speak for themselves. Over his last five starts, spanning 31.0 innings, Lopez boasts a 3.19 ERA, a 3.02 xFIP, and an impressive 28.2% strikeout rate. Facing the Oakland Athletics today, Lopez finds himself in a favorable matchup. The A’s rank 24th in wRC+ (Weighted Runs Created Plus) with a paltry 89, and they strike out 25.1% of the time against right-handed pitchers in 2023.

Betting Pros gives the Twins a -275 advantage, with a game total of 8.5 runs. All signs point to Lopez having a strong outing, with strikeouts aplenty and solid support from his offense. With a 3.38 FIP and an impressive 10.82 strikeouts per nine innings, Lopez is a reliable option. His opponent, the Athletics, struggle in scoring runs and have a feeble team OPS. The matchup is in Lopez’s favor, making him a chalky but sensible pick.

Dane Dunning (TEX) at LAA
Dane Dunning has had his ups and downs lately, but he’s been a steady performer on the road. In 85.1 innings away from home this season, Dunning boasts a 3.38 ERA and a respectable 21.5% strikeout rate. The Los Angeles Angels are his opponents today, and they don’t present a daunting challenge. The Angels rank 15th in wRC+ (101) and strike out 25.3% of the time against right-handed pitchers in 2023.

The Rangers enter the game as -162 favorites, with a game total of 8.5 runs. Dunning benefits from a team with everything to gain against a team with little at stake and dealing with key injuries. While Dunning may not be the flashiest choice, his consistent road performance and the Angels’ offensive struggles make him a strong SP2 option, especially considering the limited affordable choices available today.

Gerrit Cole (NYY) at TOR
Gerrit Cole is on fire, with a stellar performance in his last five starts, boasting a 1.69 ERA and a 29.5% strikeout rate over 32.0 innings. His matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays may be tougher than Lopez’s, but it’s still promising. The Blue Jays rank 16th in wRC+ (102) and strike out 21.2% of the time at home in 2023.

The Yankees are slight -110 favorites, with a game total of 7.5 runs. Cole is a prime choice for GPPs today, given his recent form. While not as favorable as Lopez’s matchup, Cole’s ability to miss bats and keep runs off the board makes him a strong option in tournaments.

Sean Manaea (SF) vs. SD
Sean Manaea has thrived in San Francisco this season, boasting a 3.51 ERA and a 27.8% strikeout rate in 51.1 home innings. The San Diego Padres provide a challenging matchup, but the betting info is encouraging. The Giants are -110 favorites, with a game total of 8.5 runs.

Manaea’s low salary opens up budget room for hitters, making him an attractive GPP choice on Draftkings. While the Padres present a formidable lineup, Manaea’s home success and affordability make him a solid option for those looking to stack their offense.
