Slate Summary

  • What a weekend filled with strange but entertaining NHL and NBA games. DFS Crunch members continue to crush and let’s look to continue that momentum starting off this week. It’s Monday and we have a big 11 game slate to break down.
  • Brandon Belt is my favorite bat today for 3.8k playing at Coors. We have a 9 game stretch of playing Coors and so far, it has not disappointed. In the first 3 games, there was a total of 53 runs. My favorite team to target are the Giants with Belt leading my cash build batting 2nd.
  • It’s hard to ignore LaMonte today for 2.9k leading off for the Giants. This is a great way to get a mini stack in cash builds with Belt batting right after him. Both swing left against a very mediocre right handed pitcher in Senzatela who has a 4.88 ERA this season.
  • I am locking in Severino as my pitcher for 8.1k. His team has a 64% expected win rate and the weather doesn’t scare me today in Baltimore. It’s good to have him back and healthy where he should have a solid opportunity, especially against the bottom half of the lineup.
  • All three of the players above are locks but I am still deciding whether or not I want to lock in Trea Turner. He is definitely an excellent play today for 3.7k as the Dodgers have the highest ITT. It’s crazy to think that he only has 1 HR this season which tells you that he can still get there without hitting a bomb. It’s going to be a fun day when you roster the best SS in the league.
