MLB Weekend Picks – 8/20

Value Plays

Expensive:

DeGrom: Best play on the board and im gonna have 100% exposure, don’t overthink this one.
Verlander: No Bellinger in the lineup and I think facing the best team in baseball motivates pitchers to throw their best like fulmer did yesterday.

Value:

Estrada:  This cubs lineup today is nothing to be scared about when playing a guy who can shut down a team on any given day. No kris Bryant in lineup.
Newcomb: The reds have been striking out a good amount and I think this a good play in terms of floor and has decent upside.

Fade:

Salazar: All I gotta say is he’s due for a bad game, Royals don’t strike out a ton and the weather here favors hitters.
Peacock: Oakland is due for some runs and striking out less as a team last couple games where peacocks only appeal is the k’s. (update Kris davis out so hes not as bad of an option)

Favorite Stacks:

Cleveland/KC Game stack: Hot and humid. Wind blowing out.
Tampa: Gallardo is the worst pitcher ive ever f***ing seen this year. Hes a piece of shit and all the money is going towards the over for rays.
Baltimore: Back to the well.

Other notable Stacks:

Coors(Always in play like both sides), MIN&ARI( Fat lard head and twins are hot)NYY(Yankees are gonna take this series) TEX&CWS(Chalky but personally fading today) DET(Sneaky spot and all cheap) ATL(going back but don’t love it against Castillo) TOR(sneaky spot good hitting conditions)
