The long anticipated return of my daily Draft Kings picks is finally here! Today’s slate is interesting, it’s not so heavy on the pitching so I decided to play it safe with the 60-year-old Mark Buehrle and Carlos Carrasco, who strikes out batters like it’s his job….well, it kinda is. You may also notice that half of my team is Los Angeles Dodgers. I was a little hesitant at first because they just flew cross country, but they’re facing the Phillies. Not just the Phillies, but Sean O’Sullivan, the superstar pitcher boasting a 1-6 record with a 5.76 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. Pretty easy decision to go with the Dodgers there. I took Wilmer Flores because DK still hasn’t raised his Salary, even after a weekend in LA where he went 8-for-11 with a few RBI. Manny Machado is a bargain at $3,900, he’s been killing righties. Bryce Harper is Bryce Harper and I had the money to burn, so hopefully we get a Harper moonshot tonight (and a Nationals loss).
Today’s lineup picks:
