With solely 4 video games on Monday’s MLB schedule (one among which is within the afternoon), there is not a lot margin for error in MLB DFS contests. There are nonetheless some fairly respectable pitching choices, however clearly choosing the right one on FanDuel and proper pair on DraftKings is extra necessary than ever.
When you’re taking part in an all-day match, we like Jon Lester (vs. Angels) to interrupt his droop. He is had some robust matchups these days, however the Angels have struggled struggled towards lefties many of the season earlier than a latest uptick, so it is a good alternative to get Lester at a cut price worth. Even higher, he is in good place for a win, as Chicago ought to be capable to batter round Trevor Cahill (@ Cubs).

When you’re sticking to the three-game night slate, Aaron Nola (@ Padres) is in a great place regardless of an up-and-down season. San Diego usually struggles towards righties and at residence, so Nola is price paying up for. Walker Buehler (@ D-backs) has an honest matchup, as Arizona ranks within the backside 10 in wRC+ towards righties, although he hasn’t been nice this 12 months and shall be in a hitters park. Robbie Ray (vs. Dodgers) is in the identical robust setting and has a a lot harder matchup, however he has main strikeout upside. Each Eric Lauer (vs. Phillies) and Corbin Martin (@ Mariners) are boom-or-bust candidates who’re higher suited to GPPs, however on an evening with so few choices, you would possibly see them in money video games, too.
