Carrasco will face the White Sox in Guaranteed Rate Field. He has an OTT of 3.5, second lowest on the slate and is the biggest favorite on the slate. The White Sox have the 4th highest strikeout rate in the league. There’s upside in this matchup, but Carrasco has been inconsistent this season. He’s shown upside with four games over 27 DK points, but has displayed a low floor with three games under seven points. With limited options, Carrasco is in consideration for cash games, but is typically a better tournament play.
Flaherty will face the Padres in Busch Stadium. He’s a large favorite and is tied with Carrasco for the second lowest OTT on the slate. The Padres have the third highest strikeout rate and the fifth lowest wRC+ in the league. Flaherty has been an interesting option recently, but has been so ridiculously priced on DraftKings over the past three weeks that it was difficult to play him. Now that he’s priced reasonably, I like him for both cash games and tournaments.
Quintana will face the Brewers in Miller Park. The Brewers are not an easy matchup, but Quintana is underpriced for his talent. He struggled to start the year, but has recorded 25 DK points in three of his past four starts and has at least six strikeouts in each of his last five games. I prefer Flaherty to Quintana in cash games, but will have plenty of Quintana as a lower-owned pivot in tournaments.
