Grab a cup of coffee and let’s dive into my MLB GPP picks for the main slate on DraftKings and Fanduel.

I’m going to highlight plays that have tournament winning upside. Let’s get into it.

Starting Pitchers

Max Scherzer- At $10,400 on DraftKings and $11,000 on FanDuel, Scherzer is priced up for a matchup against Tampa Bay. I expect this to be a volatile spot. Tampa Bay has posted a wRC+ of 113 but, they have stuck out at a 24.7% clip. We know how dominant Scherzer can be on any given night and there are strikeouts in this Rays lineup. I’ll have Scherzer as a high ceiling tournament play.

Dinelson Lamet- At $8,800 on DraftKings and $9,000 on FanDuel, Lamet is at a reasonable price point for a matchup against Colorado. Lamet has been reliable all season posting a K/9 of 11.49 and a FIP of 3.32. Lamet provides a high floor and Colorado has an implied run total of 3.25. I expect a quality start from Lamet today and he will be the bulk of my pitching exposure.

Kevin Gausman- At $6,100 on DraftKings and $7,700 on FanDuel, Gausman is priced down for a matchup against Arizona. This is more of a DraftKings play for me. Gausman has been rock solid posting a K/9 of 11.73 and a FIP of 3.76. Arizona has been abysmal on offense posting a wRC+ of 80. I expect Gausman to have a quality start on today’s slate.

San Diego Padres- The Padres have a matchup against Kyle Freeland with an implied run total of 4.75. Freeland has struggled in 2020 posting a K/9 of 5.73 and a FIP of 4.53. San Diego has been swinging the bats well all season posting a wRC+ of 121 and an ISO of .223, both leading the league. I expect Slam Diego to score early and often in this spot. Focus on Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, Wil Myers, and Austin Nola.

Oakland Athletics- The A’s have a matchup against Cristian Javier with an implied run total of 4.99. Javier has had his struggles in 2020 posting a FIP of 5.14 and a K/9 of 8.12. Javier has struggled to put hitters away with two strikes and the massive total indicates that will continue in this spot. Oakland has power throughout the lineup which offers a high ceiling. Sign me up. Focus on Matt Olson, Matt Chapman, Tommy LaStella, and Mark Canha.

Toronto Blue Jays- The Blue Jays have a matchup against Jordon Montgomery with an implied run total of 4.91. Montgomery has struggled in 2020 posting a K/9 of 7.92 and a FIP of 4.71. The Blue Jays have posted a wRC+ of 106 and an ISO of .192. The Jays hit for power and are facing a pitcher that pitches to contact, that’s a recipe for success. Focus on Vlad Guerrero Jr., Randal Grichuk, Lourdes Gurriel, and Johnathan Villar.
