The Showdowns: Today's DFS Matchups To Watch

Now, let's talk about the matchups that are really going to make or break your DFS lineup. Here are the three games that you need to keep an eye on:

๐Ÿ”ฅ Cubs 65-59 (-122) vs Tigers 57-68 (+102) O/U 9.0

The Cubs are taking on the Tigers at Comerica Park. With Drew Smyly's 5.15 ERA and the Cubs' high run-scoring, this game is looking to be a high-scoring affair.

โ„๏ธ Giants 65-60 (+111) vs Phillies 68-57 (-133) O/U 9.0

The Giants are up against the Phillies. With the Giants' poor batting and low run scoring, this game could potentially go under the O/U.

๐Ÿ”ฅ Rockies 48-76 (+225) vs Rays 75-51 (-280) O/U 9.0

The Rockies are facing off against the Rays. With Ty Blach's 4.14 ERA and Zack Littell's 3.77 ERA, this game could potentially go over the O/U.

The Money Shot: Today's Top Pick

Out of all these matchups, my money's on the Cubs at -122. With Drew Smyly's ERA and the Cubs' high run-scoring, it's looking like a safe bet. ๐Ÿ€

๐Ÿ Home Run Prop Favorites

๐Ÿฅ‡DJ Stewart NYM +630

DJ Stewart of the NY Mets is my gold pick. With a homerun rate of 10.34% in the last two weeks and facing Bryce Elder who has an ERA of 3.07, the odds are in his favor. The weather at Truist Park is partly cloudy, which won't affect the game much, and the wind is blowing out from center field, which is favorable for homeruns.

๐ŸฅˆJose Siri TB +430

Jose Siri of the Tampa Bay Rays is my silver pick. He has a homerun rate of 8.60% in the last two weeks and is facing Ty Blach who has an ERA of 4.14. The weather at Tropicana Field is partly cloudy and the wind is blowing out from center field, which is favorable for homeruns.

๐Ÿฅ‰Aaron Judge NYY +220

Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees is my bronze pick. He has a homerun rate of 9.87% in the last two weeks and is facing Bryce Elder who has an ERA of 3.07. The weather at Truist Park is partly cloudy and the wind is blowing out from center field, which is favorable for homeruns.
