Top DFS Plays for 07/20/14

*Top hitters and pitchers highlight exceptional matchups that may include stars, lesser-known players and those on your waiver wires.

When I put together my top hitters and pitchers I factor in several things. First, prior matchup history, whether the hitter is hot and the pitcher’s history against that type of batter. Also, these matchups are normally released in the morning so make sure that you double-check the weather leading up to games in case they were postponed or the player got the day off.

Top DFS hitters for today:

Adrian Beltre vs. Mark Buehrle - hitting .333 (12/36) with 2 2B, a HR and 4 RBI

Freddie Freeman vs. Kyle Kendrick - hitting .364 (8/22) with 2 2B, a HR, 6 RBI and 4 walks
Kendrick is 2-4 with a 5.12 ERA and lefties are hitting .323 with 7 HR against him this season.

Michael Brantley vs. Drew Smyly - hitting .500 (5/10) with 2 2B, a 3B, 2 RBI and 2 walks
Brantley is hot at the plate and is hitting .382 against Detroit this season.

Carlos Santana vs. Drew Smyly - hitting .300 (3/10) with 2 2Bs, a RBI & 3 BBs
I fully expect Santana to hit right-handed as righties have had big time success against Smyly this season.

Andrew McCutchen vs. Tyler Matzek - no previous matchup history
Matzek struggles against righties as they are hitting .305 with 3 HR & 17 RBI on the season. I expect ‘Cutch’ to welcome the young man to the show on Sunday.

Top DFS picther for today:

Tim Lincecum vs. Miami Marlins - Big Time Timmy Jim is 4-0 in his last 4 starts. I’m looking past his road ERA near 6 on the season

TV show of the day: Rookie Blue - I have been following this show for 5 seasons now and I really enjoy it. It’s a pretty good summer show to get attached too. Check it out.

So/So night last night. I don’t like small slates and games that just have a ton of question marks. Makes for a hard play.

The Sports Script Fan Duel MLB Lineup for 04/26

 

lineup

 

Here are a few reasons I like this lineup.

Tanner Roark vs. The Padres – I just really like this matchup today and the lineup that I can use with the cheap price of Roark.

Miguel Cabrera vs. Phil Hughes – hitting .560 (14/25) with 3 2Bs, 5 HRs, 11 RBIs & a BB
I never really suggest a player of the day back to back but today you can’t pass up this matchup today. He wasn’t great yesterday but Miggy is a sure fire hit today.

The Sports Script Fan Duel MLB Lineup for 04/25

Who is excited baseball is back????? I know I am which also means that Daily Fantasy Baseball is back as well. I really enjoy DFS Baseball as it keeps you even more involved and keeps you up to date with guys you normally wouldn’t care about.

Had some great success in the early games and decided to get a little greedy and try the night-cap too and burnt me.

The Sports Script Fan Duel MLB Lineup for 04/25
lineup

Here is a few reasons I like these guys tonight.

Miguel Cabrera vs. Kevin Correia - hitting .393 (11/28) with 2 2Bs, a HR, 8 RBIs & 2 BBs
Early in the week Miggy owners were in panic mode and selling him, today you couldn’t get him if you tried. 6 hits in the last 3 games and he has a matchup against Correia who is struggling against RHP this season. They are hitting .360 against him and this is the easy no brainer pick of the day.

Pedro Alvarez vs. Shelby Miller - hitting .231 (3/13) with 3 HRs, 3 RBIs & a BB
This is just a gut play today. Miller has struggled against lefties and Alvarez has struggled against RHP. I think Alvarez takes Miller deep tonight.
