Thursday, August 20th, 2020 at 7:05 PM
Let us take a look at our MLB DraftKings lineup for tonight which features 8 games and starts at 7:05pm!
On the mound tonight, we’re going to go with Shane Bieber of the Cleveland Indians & Kevin Gausman of the San Francisco Giants.
Bieber has been lights out so far this season as after five starts, the right-hander has posted an incredible 1.30 ERA, 0.721 WHIP and a 14.0 K/9 ratio. Bieber is holding opponents to just a .160 batting average and gets a nice match-up agianst a Pittsburgh team that ranks 18th in team strikeout rate and as averaged over 11 strikes as a team in their last three games.
Gausman has been nothing more than average this season, but I love the value he brings tonight at just $6,500. Gausman is coming off a solid start agianst the Oakland Athletics in which he racked up 11 strikeouts and I think that although he might give up a couple of runs, he can get us 6-10 K’s and get us a 20 DraftKings point night.
On the offensive end, we are going to go with a 4-man stack of the Boston Red Sox in their great matchup against the RHP Asher Wojciechowski of the Baltimore Orioles. Wojciechowski comes into this game with a 2.4 HR/9 ratio and I think the Red Sox’s have a big night offensively against him tonight.
For the Red Sox, we are going to roster Mitch Moreland, Rafael Devers, Alex Verdugo, and J.D. Martinez.
I’m also going to be going with a 3-man stack of the San Francisco Giants in their matchup against the LHP Jose Suarez of the Angels who will be making his first appearance of this season and is coming a 2019 year in which he finished with a 7.11 ERA & 1.642 WHIP over 81.0 IP.
For the Giants, we’re going with Joey Bart, Wilmer Flores, and Austin Slater.
Rounding out our team, we are going with some solid value in Chris Taylor of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
