I missed out on the top scoring pitchers last night but the pitchers I did recommend still posted solid numbers including Adam Conley as the sixth highest scoring pitcher on DraftKings. For tonight’s 11-game slate there are a few Aces to choose from but they all seem to have either a tough matchup or are facing each other making the choose a difficult one. Selecting my Value pitchers, on the other hand, was very easy tonight given the price point and matchups.
Max Scherzer (FD-$11,200 / DK-$13,300)
Scherzer looks to be in the best spot of all the aces tonight. He will need to try to avoid the long ball which he might be able to do against a White Sox team that has the 4th worst ISO (.135) and wOBA (.299) against righties this season. Scherzer should also have a good shot for the win as a fairly big road favorite. Scherzer is my top Cash game option on FanDuel but I might go with two cheaper options on DraftKing’s Cash games, such as David Price or my two Value plays below. Scherzer is also a GPP option on either site.
Kenta Maeda (FD-$8,200 / DK-$7,500)
Maeda is the biggest favorite on the board tonight pitching at home against the Rockies and Chris Rusin. Maeda has pitched well over his last two starts allowing just one run over 11+ innings with eight strikeouts. He will face a Rockies team that he shutout for 6+ innings at Coors Field earlier this season. Maeda is a solid Cash or GPP option on either site.
Jaime Garcia (FD-$8,100 / DK-$6,700)
Garcia is a big road favorite tonight opposed by the Reds’ Alfredo Simon. Garcia has posted a career-best 8.07 K/9 and faces a Reds’ offense that has stuck out 22.4% (11th worst) against lefties this season. Look for Garcia to pitch deep into the game with a good chance for a win making him a solid Cash game option.
Taijuan Walker (FD-$8,000 / DK-$6,800)
Walker is coming off two straight poor outings allowing 11 runs over 9+ innings which should help keep his ownership low tonight. However, Walker has had some success against the Indians’ hitters with just a .224 wOBA against him in 47 plate appearances. He has also pitched better at home this season with a 3.48 ERA and strikeout per inning. Walker is worth a GPP flier.
