Batter's Box: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Ignore
Here are the games that have caught our attention today:
🔥 Guardians 47-48 (-143) vs Pirates 41-54 (+120) O/U 9.0
With Mitch Keller's 3.73 ERA and the Pirates' lackluster batting, the Guardians might just have this one in the bag. Plus, PNC Park isn't exactly a home run haven, which could play to the Guardians' advantage.
❄️ Dodgers 55-39 (-143) vs Orioles 57-37 (+120) O/U 9.0
Despite Michael Grove's 6.32 ERA, the Dodgers' powerful batting lineup, ranking #1 overall, might just tip the scales in their favor against Tyler Wells and the Orioles.
🔥 Rays 60-38 (+100) vs Rangers 57-39 (-120) O/U 9.0
With Nathan Eovaldi's impressive 2.62 ERA, the Rangers might struggle to score against the Rays. This one's definitely a game to watch.
Pick of the Day
My money's on the Dodgers at -143. Despite Grove's shaky performance on the mound, the Dodgers' powerful batting lineup should be able to pull them through. Let's play ball!
