Batter Up: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Miss

Here are the games on our radar today:

🔥 Angels (+220) vs Mets (-300) O/U 9.0

The Angels are taking on the Mets at Citi Field. The Mets' David Peterson has been struggling with a 5.59 ERA, making him one of the worst starters in baseball. On the other hand, the Angels' Griffin Canning is one of the easiest pitchers to hit a homer off of. This game could go either way, making it a thrilling matchup to watch.

The Cubs are facing the Pirates at PNC Park, one of the toughest ballparks for HRs. The Pirates' Bailey Falter has a 4.53 ERA, which could give the Cubs an edge. This game is likely to go under the over/under, making it a potential goldmine for under bettors.

🔥 Cardinals (+164) vs Phillies (-199) O/U 9.0

The Cardinals are up against the Phillies. The Phillies' Aaron Nola has a solid 4.43 ERA and ranks #22 for the highest strikeout rate in baseball. The Cardinals' Drew Rom, on the other hand, is one of the worst starters in baseball with a whopping 14.73 ERA. This game is likely to go over the over/under, making it a hot pick for over bettors.

The Showstopper: Today's Top Matchup

Out of all the games today, the one that's got me on the edge of my seat is the Cardinals vs Phillies. With the Phillies' strong pitching and the Cardinals' struggling starter, I'm liking the Phillies at -199. Get your popcorn ready, folks. This one's going to be a showstopper!
