Looks like you survived your July 4th celebrations if you’re reading this. All fingers in tact? Great! Now, let’s use those digits to score some sweet dough in tonight’s seven game Main slate on FanDuel. My pitcher du jour tonight is none other than Razzball favorite, Robbie Ray ($9,300). Ray gets the benefit of facing the Rockies on the road. It’s a DFS staple as old as time itself to pick on the Rockies on the road and tonight is no different. The Rockies own the league’s worst team OPS on the road and to make things even better for our boy Robbie, the Rockies are currently tied for the league lead in strikeouts before the Friday night games. With any luck Ray can keep his walks in check tonight and make it out of the fifth for a shot at a win but if not, the chance of 10+ strikeouts makes his price worth it.

Kenta Maeda, SP: $6,700 – Kenta is probably the only other pitcher I’ll be looking at tonight. Can you say price savings? If not, you should maybe see a speech therapist. I know Maeda hasn’t been stellar or anything, but this is just too darn cheap. Lock him in and load up on bats!
Jose Abreu, C/1B: $3,500 – With three homers in his last nine games Abreu has been red hot. Tonight he’ll get a shot at Jon Lester where he’ll have the platoon advantage and should have a nice chance to make it four dingers in his last ten.
Paul Goldschmidt, C/1B: $3,000 – A match-up with Bumgarner doesn’t scare me like it used to and this is a pretty solid price for what I believe is still a pretty solid hitter.
Robinson Cano, 2B: $2,800 – Jake Arrieta’s decline has been well documented and second base is a wasteland tonight. I’m locking in Cano and not looking back, the price savings is just too good on the other options.
Yoan Moncada, 3B: $3,700 – I guess I’ll be picking on Lester tonight, because I’m loving the pricing of the White Sox against him. Naturally, tonight will be the night he throws a no-hitter but I’m prepared to die on that hill.
Kyle Seager, 3B: $2,800 – If you’re not feeling me on the Lester stack, maybe you’d like to take a shot at Chris Bassitt. Seager is pretty cheap and has the platoon advantage. Lefties have managed a .747 OPS so far this year against Bassitt, so there’s a chance for something decent.
Leury Garcia, SS: $3,100 – Shortstop is yummy tonight and I wouldn’t hate paying up for Bregman, Segura or Tatis but if I’m stacking Pale Hose, I might as well nab their leadoff man too.
Franklin Barreto, SS: $2,100 – I love me some fresh call-ups on FanDuel. Priced barely above the stone cold minimum Barreto should easily be able to return some value tonight.
Scott Kingery, OF: $3,300 – As much as I’m on board with the Mets tonight, I won’t shy away from playing some Phils against Syndergaard either. Kingery has been hot fire and the price is right tonight.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
All clear tonight but it looks hazy, hot and humid in the big apple so give a bump to those Philly and Met bats and avoid Syndergaard and Arrieta like the plague.
Doing Lines In Vegas
I’ll take the over in the PHI/NYM tilt with the line set at 9 runs. [email protected] and the battle of Chicago actually have the highest over/unders of the night at 9.5 runs. Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers are the biggest favorites on the night at -155. That’s even more fuel for the Maeda fire.
