San Diego Padres (vs. San Francisco Giants - SP Kevin Gausman)
Fernando Tatis, Austin Nola, Tommy Pham, Adam Frazier & Jurickson Profar all have solid numbers against Gausman. These five batters are a combined 27 for 68 with two home runs against San Francisco's starting pitcher. Gausman most recently faced San Diego in his last start on 9/16. In this start, he allowed four earned runs over 5.0 IP. When pitchers face the same team two starts in a row it provides an advantage for the batter. Gausman is allowing a .279 BA with eight home runs to opposing lefties. Also, over his last five starts, he has 4.34 ERA, not good. Gausman's salary is ridiculously high at $10,100 on Draftkings. I don't see it. Four-five man stack these San Diego Padres tonight for cash/GPP success.
Pivot: Kevin Gausman
Boston Red Sox (vs. New York Mets - SP Marcus Stroman)
The Red Sox have a combined .305 BA with eight doubles & three home runs against Marcus Stroman. Stroman has looked good over his last two starts totaling 22.5 & 23.3 DK FP. With that said, this is a potential regression spot. Xander Bogaerts & Christian Vazquez are all valuable GPP players who carry significant upside. The Red Sox have won five in a row totaling 41 runs over this span. The Mets have lost five of their last six games and their bullpen is overworked. If Stroman can't manage at least 6.0 IP, New York will be looking at a problem againast this still powerful Boston lineup. PointsBet.com has Boston favored by -135 with a 9.5 O/U.
Top Play: Xander Bogaerts
Value: Christian Vazquez
Pivot: Marcus Stroman
