DraftKings and FanDuel

Joc Pederson , Chicago Cubs - OF ($3.5K on DK, $2.4K on FD)

It's a leap of faith since Pederson's off to a slow start after launching eight home runs this spring. Through 57 plate appearances in 2021, he's only hit one home run with a paltry .536 on-base plus slugging percentage. Season long owners already bailing on him may signal the time to buy low on "Young Joc”. He's hit safely in two of his last three including a triple on Sunday night baseball. He also owns a track record of success facing Taijuan Walker going 7-for-15 in previous match-ups with two doubles and a home run with an average exit velocity of 96 MPH in his batted ball events. Focus on the .392 expected batting average and hope he can hit one out in the cold confines at Wrigley tonight. 

Left-handed Hitters against Logan Webb

Matt Joyce , Philadelphia - OF ($2.8K on DK, $2K on FD)

Brad Miller , Philadelphia - 1B ($2.7K on DK, $2K on FD)

There's two things at play here. First, Logan Webb missed time preparing for this game due to a reaction to his COVID vaccination. Second, he's faced left-handed hitters 21 times this season giving up a .444/.524/.722 slash line in them with a home run against heading to a ballpark which favors left-handed power hitters. Neither Joyce or Miller moves the excitement needle but at their price points should not be ignored on this slate. One of these two will homer tonight.

Mine the Value with Atlanta heading to the Bronx

Ehire Adrianza - 2B/3B ($2K on DK)

Pablo Sandoval - 1B/3B ($2.2K on DK)

Over his last two games, Adrianza's 4-for-8 with a triple, home run and two RBI. Through his first 21 at-bats this season he owns a 1.095 on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS), gets a struggling Jameson Taillon , overworked bullpen and a short porch in right field. A home run equals plenty of value or even a hit, run and RBI. As for Sandoval, he's cracked three home runs in 13 at-bats this year and carries a .295 average in Yankee Stadium over 47 at-bats spanning 11 games into this contest.

Daniel Vogelbach , Milwaukee - 1B ($2.6K on FD)

Make sure he's in the lineup but Vogey launched two home runs on Sunday and seems primed to build on his power surge in San Diego with Chris Paddack on the mound. Armed with a robust 64.7 hard hit rate and tower power, all one needs is a dinger to hit three times value with Vogey.
