June 4th MLB DFS Plays



Tonight in the MLB we have a smaller seven game slate to take advantage of, starting pitching could come at a premium but it is very doable. I think you are going to have to nail your hitters tonight to have a big night. Lets go ahead and start to break down this slate of games.

Vegas Odds:

7:05 PM EST : Chi Cubs ( +108 ) at Washington ( -117 ) —- T: 7.0
7:05 PM EST : Cincinnati ( -108 ) at Philadelphia ( +100 ) —- T: 7.5
8:05 PM EST : Chi Sox ( +115 ) at Texas ( -125 ) —- T: 9.0
8:10 PM EST : Cleveland ( +114 ) at Kansas City ( -123 ) —- T: 7.5
9:40 PM EST : NY Mets ( -144 ) at Arizona ( +133 ) —- T: 8.0
10:10 PM EST : Tampa Bay ( +114 ) at Seattle ( -123 ) —- T: 7.5
10:10 PM EST : St. Louis ( +103 ) at LA Dodgers ( -111 ) —- T: 7.0


Pitchers - Matt Harvey is the clear cut top arm tonight, Harvey comes in at 5-3 on the year with 71 strikeouts. I will anchor all my cash games around Harvey this evening. Gio Gonzales is interesting, he gets the strikeout Cubs tonight in a game with a low Vegas total. I could see Gio being the guy to own in a GPP. If you are about going against the grain, look at Michael Wacha facing the home run hitting Dodgers tonight. I actually like Wacha here tonight, he is 7-1 on the year and a legit number one pitcher. 


Catcher - Tonight is every reason why I tend to punt catcher every single night. I have no desire to pay top dollar for Yan Gomes when I can pay half for a guy like Kevin Plawecki of the Mets. 


1st Base - Lucas Duda of the Mets gets a plus match up tonight against Jeremy Hellickson. Duda comes into tonight with 9 homers and 25 RBIs. Carlos Santana is in another match up to exploit tonight, Santana has hits in his last three and facing Chris Young this evening. 


2nd Base - Daniel Murphy like Duda is in a plus match up for the Mets tonight. Murphy has six hits in his last four and a home run over that span. Brandon Phillips has seven hits in his last three games, and makes for a solid play tonight in cash games. 


3rd Base - Lonnie Chisenahll has hits in his last three and could be in line for a big night tonight against the Royals. I want to talk about Todd Frazier but every night I roster him, he finds a way to go 0-4 so I wont discuss why I like Frazier tonight. 


Shortstop - Jhonny Peralta should be hitting in the middle of the Cardinals lineup tonight and makes a great cash game play. Alcides Escobar is my GPP play of the night, Escobar has struggled some of lately but when he gets on base he is always a threat to steal bases and score runs. 


Outfield - Michael Brantley has hits in his last three starts and the homer is coming, let tonight be that night for Brantley. Joc Pederson has homers in his last five games and you cant play a cash game without Pederson at this rate. I like a lot of Mets tonight, so its only natural to give Curtis Granderson the GPP play of the night in the outfield this evening. 


This will conclude my piece for the slate this evening in the MLB. As always, enjoy your night, and good luck growing your bankroll.
