*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 Pitcher for today:
Madison Bumgarner vs. Detroit Tigers – Bum has thrown 15 innings, given up 1 run and struck out 20 in his last 2 starts. He has been on fire and look for that to continue today.
Francisco Liriano vs. Chicago Cubs – Liriano pitched a complete game with 14 Ks in his last matchup against the Cubbies. Love him.
Movie of the Day: From Paris With Love – John Travolta plays the ultimate bad ass in this movie. Not sure why it gets crapped on because I love it.
