Skaggs will face the Rays in Angel Stadium. He’s been fairly solid this season, but hasn’t had a breakout game. The Rays strike out 23.2% of the time against lefties, 13th in the league. Skaggs is one of the biggest favorites on the slate, and has an OTT of 3.5 (see pitcher chart), lowest on the slate. I think he’s too expensive for cash games, but will have a few shares of him in tournaments.
Archer will face the Angels in Angel Stadium. While the Angels don’t strike out often, they should have a lineup full of righties. Archer has an OTT of four, but on this slate, that may be ok. At a price of just $6,900, Archer is one of the best plays on the slate, even in a difficult matchup.
Lester will face the Braves in SunTrust Park. The Braves are a good offense, but like Archer, Lester is too cheap. He also has an OTT of four, and is a slight favorite. This is more about the price than the matchup. It’s an ugly slate, so I’m betting on talented pitchers who are underpriced rather than trying to select the best matchups. With Lester priced at $7,700, I think he’s a solid cash game play, even against a tough offense.
