Slate Summary

  • Since the Mets and Rockies played for game 1, I’m expecting game 2 to play as well. That being said, we don’t have confirmed lineups yet but I will update my core plays accordingly up until lock.
  • This year, Woodruff has had some really good games and some really poor outings. For today, I think the price is low enough to roster. I will be locking him in with Verlander and figure out my bats for cash games. The Brewers have a 66% expected win rate and the second highest ITT so the team should give some run support.
  • Justin Verlander is another lock for me in one of the best matchups for a pitcher. These two should be heavily owned tonight and I don’t recommend fading in cash games.
  • If Lindor is in and playing for game 2, he is my favorite bat to target. Currently he is struggling at Coors but it’s hard to imagine him continuing this trend. For 5.0, he is someone you should have exposure too, even in GPP as the NYM are my favorite team to stack.


  • Brandon Woodruff (MIL) (P) (9.5)
  • Justin Verlander (HOU) (P) (10.3)
  • Francisco Lindor (NYM) (SS) (5.0)


  • Seth Brown (OAK) (1B/OF) (2.4)
  • Jed Lowrie (OAK) (2B) (2.3)


  • NYM
  • MIL
  • OAK
