DFS - MLB - DraftKings - MLB Lineup - Main Slate - 8/18/2020
Tuesday, August 18th, 2020 at 7:05 PM
Let’s take a look at our DraftKings MLB “Main Slate” Lineup that features 11 games and starts at 7:05pm!
We really don’t have any weather concerns tonight so feel free to attack any of the 11 games on the slate.
On the mound tonight, we’re going to paying up for Yu Darvish of the Chicago Cubs and get some value with Corbin Burnes of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Darvish has picked up where he left off last season and through his four appearances this season, has posted a 1.88 ERA & 0.75 WHIP while posting a solid 10.1 K/9 ratio. Darvish has had success agianst the current St. Louis roster, holding the Cardinals to just a .192 average and I think he continues his strong start to the 2020 season tonight.
Corbin Burnes will be getting the start tonight and despite the tough matchup agianst the Minnesota Twins, I like the upside Burnes brings to the mound with his ability to pile of strikeouts. Burnes comes into this match-up with a 3.38 ERA & 1.19 WHIP while posting an incredible 13.5 K/9 ratio.
On the offensive end, I’m all in for a game stack with the Philadelphia Phillies taking on the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
I’m not sold on either Zach Eflin or Zack Godley and expect both to struggle with the wind blowing out at Fenway tonight.
For the Phillies, we’re going with a 3-man stack of Didi Gregorius, Bryce Harper, and Jay Bruce.
For the Red Sox, we’re going with a 3-man stack of Mitch Moreland, Rafael Devers, and Alex Verdugo.
Rounding out our team, we’re going to go with Travis d’Arnaud of the Atlanta Braves & Kike Hernandez of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
