DFS Showdowns: Games You Can't Afford to Miss

Now, let's take a look at some of the most interesting matchups today:

🔥 Marlins 68-67 (-125) vs Nationals 62-74 (+105) O/U 9.0

With a 4:05 PM start, this game is set to be a scorcher. The Marlins' pitcher, Johnny Cueto, has a 5.57 ERA and has faced 130 batters. On the other side, the Nationals' Trevor Williams has a 4.82 ERA and has faced 578 batters. Despite their records, both teams have some of the easiest pitchers to hit home runs off of, making this an interesting game from a betting perspective.

❄️ Angels 64-71 (-126) vs Athletics 40-95 (+106) O/U 8.5

This game is set to be a chilly one. The Angels' Griffin Canning has a 4.38 ERA and has faced 415 batters, while the Athletics' Paul Blackburn has a 3.98 ERA and has faced 365 batters. Despite the Athletics' poor record, their bats are one of the worst in baseball, making this a game to watch.

🔥 Rays 82-53 (-119) vs Guardians 65-70 (-101) O/U 8.5

This game is set to be a hot one. The Rays' Zack Littell has a 4.29 ERA and has faced 236 batters. Despite the Guardians' record, they are the hardest team to strikeout in baseball, leading with just 7 per game. This makes for an interesting game from a DFS perspective.

🍀 Favorite Matchup Of The Day

Out of all the matchups, my favorite pick of the day is the Rays at -119. With their strong record and the Guardians' difficulty in striking out, I believe they have a strong chance of coming out on top. Let's see if the Rays can keep their heat going!

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Aaron Judge NYY +290

Aaron Judge is a power-hitting machine, with a whopping 30 homers in 347 at-bats, that's a 10.6% home run rate. He's up against Hunter Brown, who's been struggling with a 4.53 ERA and gives up a home run to 3.2% of batters faced. The weather at Minute Maid Park is sunny and 86 degrees, with a slight 2MPH wind blowing in from center field, but Judge's power should be able to overcome that.

🥈Kyle Schwarber PHI +280

Kyle Schwarber has been on a tear, with 38 homers in 594 at-bats, a 7.85% home run rate. He's facing Colin Rea, who's been shaky with a 5.11 ERA and gives up a home run to 4.5% of batters faced. The weather at American Family Field is partly cloudy and 77 degrees, with a 12MPH wind blowing towards right field, which should aid Schwarber's left-handed power swing.

🥉Davis Schneider TOR +450

Davis Schneider is a bit of a wild card, with only 62 at-bats but already 6 homers, a staggering 11.76% home run rate. He's up against Ty Blach, who's been struggling with a 3.94 ERA and gives up a home run to 2.9% of batters faced. The weather at Coors Field is partly cloudy and 77 degrees, with a slight 2MPH wind blowing towards center field, which shouldn't impact Schneider's power too much.
