WEATHER

Milwaukee @ Washington - Chance of storms, but nothing that should cause any PPD issues

PITCHING

  1. Corey Kluber ... Some people will look at Severino as a -350 favorite or even Wheeler against the Giants and try to get cute here. Kluber isn't in a perfect spot against a pesky Rays team, but despite a couple HR to lefties I expect him to continue his recent surge of pitching good baseball and get the win tonight along with 7 innings and 7 strikeouts. Best arm to pay up for and he isn't overpriced.
  2. Nathan Eovaldi ... The Red Sox are making adjustments to Eovaldi rather than forcing him to adjust to them and while everyone is running away from someone they were clamoring for earlier this year I am going to run towards the fire and I expect him to have a fantastic outing tonight vs the White Sox. He is my #1 arm on FanDuel and also has the benefit of Will Little calling balls and strikes.

MID TIER / LONGSHOTS

  1. Andrew Suarez ... Mets have struggled vs LHP and going into a big pitchers park Suarez is overpriced but should pitch okay tonight.
  2. Mike Fiers ...

STACKS

Stacking Sucks, it's Friday. Got a problem with that?

Seriously though, teams I like the most for offense tonight are ...

Twins... Good warm ballpark and all the Miguel Sano a man can get. Don't mind the OF here either as it's a weak OF night but I would only play them all together.

Cubs (Rizzo/Schwarber)

Royals, Orioles ... Two bad arms on the mound and two offenses playing good care free baseball right now.

and sneaky plays would be

Diamondbacks ... Ryu sucks

Brewers ... Roark blows.
