Detroit Tigers (vs. Milwaukee Brewers - SP Wily Peralta)

Early Slates

The NBC Sports Edge MLB DFS Optimizer has four Detroit Tigers present in our optimal GPP lineup; Miguel Cabrera, Jeimer Candelario, Eric Haase, and Robbie Grossman. Grossman is projected for 10.8 DK FP. Candelario is projected for 10.1 DK FP. Hause is projected for 6.7 DK FP, and Cabrera is projected for 9.8 DK FP. Peralta has maintained a 3.21 ERA over his last three starts. Right-handed batters have the advantage here, batting .279 against Peralta, compared to lefties who have a .213 combined BA against the right-handed veteran. The Tigers have won three of their last four games totaling 24 runs over that span. Ride their current hot streak and lock in some Tigers tonight at beyond reasonable DFS salaries around the industry.  

Top Plays: Robbie Grossman & Jeimer Candelario

Value: Miguel Cabrera 

Pivot: Wily Peralta


Baltimore Orioles (vs. New York Yankees - SP Gerrit Cole)

Gerrit Cole has a 3.82 road ERA but has been known to perform well against these Baltimore Orioles, maintaining a.149 allowed BA over 71 at-bats. Cole is expected to be an extremely popular play for DFS purposes. For a contrarian strategy, take a shot at stacking these Orioles. Cole has allowed 19 home runs this season, 11 to lefties, eight to righties. That’s no small number. The Baltimore Orioles have lost each of their last three-game but performed offensively totaling 19 runs over that span. It was their pitching that completely gave way, allowing 44 total runs over this same three-game span. The Yankees will be a popular DFS stack and are worth a look as well. A full-game stack strategy is playable here.

Top Plays: Cedric Mullins, Anthony SantanderAustin Hays & Trey Mancini 

Value: Ramon Urias & Pedro Severino

Pivot: Gerrit Cole
