Game On: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Afford to Miss

Let's take a look at the matchups that are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

🔥 Twins 72-66 (-123) vs Guardians 66-72 (+103) O/U 8.0

With the Twins' Sonny Gray (ERA 2.87) facing off against the Guardians' Tanner Bibee (ERA 3.03), this game is set to be a pitcher's duel. Progressive Field is notoriously tough for HRs, but the Twins lead the league in strikeouts. This one's going to be a nail-biter!

Brandon Woodruff (ERA 2.70) of the Brewers is up against Andre Jackson (ERA 4.46) of the Pirates. With Woodruff's high strikeout rate, and PNC Park's low HR rate, this game could be a low-scoring affair.

🔥 Red Sox 72-66 (+134) vs Rays 83-55 (-160) O/U 8.5

With the Red Sox's Kutter Crawford (ERA 4.08) facing the Rays' Zach Eflin (ERA 3.40), this game could be a high-scoring affair. The overcast weather could also play a factor in this matchup.

Today's Top Pick

My favorite pick of the day? I'm going with the Brewers at -174. With Brandon Woodruff's impressive strikeout rate and the low HR rate at PNC Park, I'm feeling good about this one. 🍀
