DFS - MLB - FanDuel - MLB Lineup - Main Slate - 7/31/2020
Thursday, July 31st 2020 at 7:05 PM
Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday and is ready for a great weekend of sports!
We lost another game tonight (Brewers/Cardinals) due to COVID-19, however, we still have a great MLB Slate tonight that features 12 games and starts at 7:05pm.
As for the weather, there isn’t much to worry about tonight outside of some small concerns with the TAM/BAL & NYM/ATL games. I’m concerned enough at this point based on the recent weather reports to avoid either of these games.
Let’s take a look at our FanDuel Lineup for today!
On the mound tonight, we’re going to go with value so we can pay up for the first Coors Field game of the season. For our value, we’re going to take a look at Baltimore’s Alex Cobb who is up against his former team the Tampa Bay Rays. Cobb has been dealing with injuries over his last few seasons but looked like his former self in his first game agianst the Red Sox going 5.1 IP while giving up just 1 ER while striking out 6. Cobb has a tough match-up agianst the Rays, however, I think he just has too much value and we’re not going to spend up on Luis Castillo, I think going with Cobb is the play here.
As we’re saving money on Cobb, we are going to be going with a 4-man San Diego stack agianst Jon Gray of the Colorado Rockies.
Gray isn’t the worst pitcher that the Rockies have, but he certainly has shown over the years that he can really struggle at times and I think the Padres are going to jump all over him tonight.
For the Padres, we’re going to stack Jurickson Profar, Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr. & Wil Myers.
Staying in this match-up, we’re also going to pay up for the Rockies Nolan Arenado. Arenado has gotten off to a slow start to the season, however, Arenado at home is almost a sure thing as last season, the veteran third baseman posted a .351 average and 1.057 OPS at Coors Field.
I’m a fan of the White Sox tonight in their match-up agianst the LHP Kris Bubic who will be making his MLB debut tonight. Bubic has yet to pick above Single-A and I think could be in for a long night agianst dangerous White Sox offense.
For the White Sox, we’re going to go with both Eloy Jimenez & Luis Robert.
Rounding out the team, I love the LHB’s of the Atlanta Braves agianst the RHP Rick Porcello and I’m going to pay up for Freddie Freeman.
