With the Braves and Phillies playing Monday’s lone afternoon game, there are just eight games on tonight’s main slate. The pitching options are relatively thin in daily fantasy baseball contests, especially for cash games, so consider this a good night to try your luck in GPP tournament.
Luis Severino is our top play, but he’s one of the few with clearly favorable matchup. In fact, many of today pitchers, including Michael Fulmer, Cole Hamels, Gio Gonzalez, Charlie Morton, and Alex Cobb, have poor matchups based on the splits. The numbers actually point to Mike Clevinger and Danny Duffy as solid options despite traditionally scary opponents and ballparks (@BOS and @BAL, respectively).
Marco Estrada, who’s struggled noticeably since the start of June, has the best matchup of the day (@CWS), but it actually wouldn’t be surprising if he has a high ownership percentage.
