Syndergaard will pitch at home against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blue Jays will take a big park hit and will lose their DH traveling to the National League. At $10,800, Syndergaard offers a $3,100 discount from Gerrit Cole, putting him in play for cash games. Syndergaard has an OTT of three (see pitcher chart) and is a heavy favorite. Even with his recent struggles (by his standards), it’s hard to pass on Syndergaard at this price.
Wood will face the Marlins in Marlins Park. I’m a bit nervous that Wood has been priced up to $10,000 because he doesn’t go deep into games. He will have to be efficient with his pitches to reach value, but he provides some safety for cash games. The Marlins are the worst offense in the league with a wRC+ of just 76. Wood has an OTT of three and is a big favorite as well. I’ll take Syndergaard over Wood for the upside, but I think Wood is a safe choice for 18-23 DK points.
Darvish has a 6.00 ERA this season, but his SIERA is almost two runs lower. DraftKings has priced Darvish at $7,800 on Tuesday in a matchup against the Braves. Quickly looking at the numbers, it looks like Darvish is struggling with walks and home runs, although the home runs might be a bit unlucky. The Braves have the highest wRC+ this season and have the third lowest strikeout rate. It’s a difficult matchup for Darvish, but I can’t seem to get past seeing his name at $7,800 on DraftKings. I’ll pass on him for cash games, but will have a few shares in tournaments in case he figures it out.
