Happy Michael Wacha chalk day AND happy Carlos Gonzalez Revenge Game Day.
Ok, well the second one above is probably a stretch considering CarGo is CarGone.
But yea, Michael Wacha will be highly sought after today against the Marlins.
And it goes against every rule and being I have in my DFS body.
First rule, don’t play Michael Wacha.
Second rule, don’t play pitchers against the Marlins.
But here we are. It’s a 9-game slate and we are going to be starved for value on all sites today, even on FanDuel.
Below is a table of the top-8 worst xFIPs vs. each hand on the slate today. Hope you continue to find this data helpful.
Now let’s sit back and let the good times roll.
Michael Wacha – at Miami Marlins – $6,300
Analysis: Here we are, shocking right? The Marlins are bad, but they are scrappy and can ruin your night playing pitchers against them on DraftKings. But this pricing isn’t DraftKings and you can roll the dice a little more when pitchers aren’t tagged for negative points for every little hit, walk and hit batsman. The Marlins are dead last in wOBA against right-handed pitching this season, accumulating a 22.3% strike out rate with a very paltry .113 ISO on the year. Wacha has been struggling all season, but he’s still striking out batters from both sides of the plate at at least an 8 K/9.
