Tonight’s MLB DFS coverage is for the big sized 11-game main slate that starts at 7:05 pm ET on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Starting pitching is headlined by Blake Snell, Kodai Senga, and Jordan Montgomery. Ronald Acuna Jr. and Mookie Betts are the most expensive hitters at our disposal, but Aaron Judge is probably being my top spend-up option on this slate. Jon Impemba is on the playbook today, make sure to give that a read, and don’t forget to check out the MLB Lineups page, Vegas Odds, and all of our MLB DFS Tools. Let’s dive into some of my favorite value options of the day and some we can fit into our cash and tournament lineups!
MLB DFS Value Pitcher
Kikuchi has actually pitched very well this season with a 3.63 ERA and 152 Ks across 143.2 innings of work. He’s been even better of late too, with a 2.93 ERA over his last 10 starts and 60 Ks in 55.1 innings in that timeframe. He should be able to keep the good times rollin’ today as the Jays take on the Royals and are heavy favorites to win as well.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
DFS sites are kind of asleep at the wheel with Vientos right now as his price remains nearly the minimum, despite the fact that he is hitting well right now. He has scored 17, 5, 19, 16, and 5 dk points over his last five games with two home runs, three RBI, and at least one hit in each contest. Tonight, he gets to face a horrendous pitcher (at least these days) in Dallas Keuchel, who has a 5.06 ERA and 1.50 WHIP thus far.
Right to another Mets bat, Mauricio is also swinging a hot bat, is also cheap, and obviously also facing Keuchel. Mauricio has looked incredible in his first 5 big league games, going 8-19 (.421) with THREE steals and a double. I expect the Mets to have their way with Keuchel today (because every team does these days) and it’s a very easy stack to make happen with guys like Mauricio and Vientos being options that are cheap.
Dominguez is very quickly losing his “value” tag and is already out of that range on FD, but he’s still a solid price tag on DK. I can’t blame the DFS sites for raising his price daily though as the rookie is off to a fantastic start, hitting .292 with three home runs, five RBI, and five runs scored through his first 6 games. Tonight, he faces a bad pitcher in Colin Rea, who has a 5.07 ERA this season and has given up 21 home runs in 104.2 innings (Also why I said I like Judge tonight).
