Only a few days left of the MLB regular season, but there is still money to be won on DraftKings and FanDuel so let’s get down to business! This article will give out three pitchers and four stacks that I like tonight for MLB tournaments.
Walker Buehler @ Arizona Diamondbacks | $11700 DK | $10100 FD
With top pitchers Max Scherzer, Trevor Bauer, Luis Severino and Noah Syndergaard on the mound today, picking Walker Buehler as my top arm may be a contrarian move. However, I felt that it was the obvious choice on this slate. The Los Angeles Dodgers are right in the thick of the playoff race as they currently sit atop the National League West division by 1.5 games and are trailing the Atlanta Braves by 0.5 game for second place in the National League. Buehler has been the best pitcher for the Dodgers recently. In three of his last four outings he has thrown over 100 pitches and allowed only one earned run while striking out a combined 30 batters! His one “bad” start in between was at Coors Field where he allowed four runs but also struck out seven batters. Over the last 15 days his opponent’s average hit distance is down to 171 feet and his opponent’s exit velocity is down to 84 MPH. He has the third highest strikeout rate on the slate at 28.9% and one of the best matchups against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks have absolutely mailed it in for the season. They have lost eight of their last nine games and have thrown out a projected lineup that has a 23.6% strikeout rate.
