Bauer will face the White Sox for the second time in five days. He is the biggest favorite and has the lowest OTT on the slate. The White Sox own the second highest strikeout rate in the league, and Bauer has recorded at least 11 strikeouts in each of his past four games. He’s been incredibly consistent this year, averagint 25.1 DK points per game and only recording fewer than 22 DK points once this year. In cash games, Bauer is the guy to pay for.
Mikolas will face the Phillies in Citizens Bank Park. He’s been solid so far, averaging 18.1 DK points this year. He has an OTT of 3.5, one of the lower OTTs on the slate. Mikolas is a better real-life pitcher than fantasy pitcher as his 18.7% strikeout rate isn’t desirable in DFS. The reason I’m considering Mikolas is the Phillies have the highest strikeout rate in the league at 27.1% against righties. If Mikolas can get 6-7 punch outs, he’ll be in a great spot to reach value at $8,300 on DraftKings.
