Bauer will face the Tigers in Progressive Field. He’s tied for the lowest OTT on the slate, and is one of the biggest favorites. I’ve been playing Bauer in my cash game lineups almost every start over the last month because of the safety. Bauer has recorded at least 23.4 DK points in every game since May 11. He’s also recorded three straight games of 30+ DK points. The Tigers are not a good offense but have a surprisingly low strikeout rate. I’m not worried about the 21% strikeout rate, as I believe Bauer can dominate this offense and get near double-digit punch outs.
DeGrom is priced $400 cheaper than Bauer, but has a tougher matchup against the Dodgers. The Dodgers are a good offense, but not good enough where I fade pitchers against them. DeGrom has been as solid as Bauer and is another safe cash game option. He is also a large favorite with a low OTT. Lineups, weather, and umpires will determine whether Bauer or deGrom is the better option if you’re playing a slate with both pitchers available.
Gray will face the Rays in Tropicana Field. It’s a park upgrade for Gray, and he has an OTT of just 3.5. He’s a moderate favorite against a Rays team full of righties. He’s shown some upside, recording 20+ DK points in four of his past six games. For $6,900, Gray makes a great SP2 on DraftKings.
