If you are reading the intro instead of scrolling down and reading today’s recommendations, then I want to encourage you to do AT LEAST this one thing every day you play MLB DFS during the week.

</P>

Review and consider the results of the Expert Consensus.

</P>

And I certainly recommend this if you are a big cash game player. It’s pretty damn accurate in regards to who will be chalk each night, who people will use in their double-ups and H2Hs. If anything, it can be a reference, but it also might give you some insight into what you will be up against in those type of contests.

</P>

I wanted to give us a plug here today because the Consensus is on point each night and can be valuable to you as part of your routine.

</P>

Now that I have got that out of the way, let’s get to tonight’s 7-game slate.

</P>

LOS ANGELES ANGELS

1. Mike Trout – $5,700
2. Justin Upton – $4,700
3. Zack Cozart – $4,600

</P>

Total Cost – $15,000
Percentage of Salary Cap – 30%
Combined 2018 Home Runs – 9
Opposing SP HR/9 vs. L – 1.42
Opposing SP HR/9 vs. R – 1.21

</P>

Justification – When you don’t lock in Mike Trout versus a lefty in cash games, you are doing it wrong. I did it wrong on Tuesday. Today I will not turn him down anywhere. Nor will I turn down some Angels correlation. Taking on lefty Matt Moore in an increasingly warming North Texas environment sounds like we can just print money tonight. Each guy of this 3-man stack has an ISO of 200+. Trout’s wOBA is over .400, Upton is a close second at .386 and Cozart’s is at .371.

NEW YORK YANKEES

1. Gary Sanchez – $3,900
2. Giancarlo Stanton – $4,500
3. Aaron Judge – $4,300
4. Didi Gregorius – $4,300

</P>

Total Cost – $17,000
Percentage of Salary Cap – 34%
Combined 2018 Home Runs – 9
Opposing SP HR/9 vs. L – 0.84
Opposing SP HR/9 vs. R – 1.14

</P>

Justification –  I don’t know what the DraftKings algorithm is smoking, but I am glad it came out chill because these are about as good as the Yankee prices are going to get all year, and they aren’t facing a Kershaw, Sale, Kluber or Scherzer. Instead, it’s David Price, the most expensive pitcher on the slate. I understand Price might be seeing a bit of resurgence, but would you rather play priced down power bats against a semi-overrated pitcher? Oooooor, would you play a priced of Price who had success against the Rays twice? Hence, you are paying for those past performances. I’ll take the stack in Fenway any day, especially RH bats. Ok, Stanton against a lefty not named Sale or Kershaw? You know me, hopefully. Judge is in the midst of an 8-game hitting streak, so he’s locked in it appears. Gary Sanchez has 4 home runs off of Price in his VERY short career while Gregorius hits cleanup in this order. And even though he’s a lefty, Gregorius has shown he can hit lefties and has hit Price often – 6-for-14, 2 2Bs, 5 RBIs.
