MLB Fanduel and Picks ATS For 8/9

Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

A new week begins with a shortlist of games on Monday. Not a single matchup has inter-division standings at stake or rivalry-type games. There are three aces pitching on the road today worth watching, Luis Castillo for the Reds, Freddy Peralta for the Brewers, and Jameson Taillon for the Yankees.

Cincinnati Reds @ Cleveland Indians 6:10 PM ET

Castillo (6-10) vs Hentges (1-4)

Luis Castillo has been one of the NL’s best pitchers the last month. Cleveland is using this as an opener/bullpen game, so I’d lean towards the hot hand with Castillo and the Reds.

Pick: Reds -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Luis Castillo (SP)

Jonathan India (3B)

Jesser Winker (OF)

Frammil Reyes (OF)

Milwaukee Brewers @ Chicago Cubs 8:05 PM ET

Peralta (8-3) vs Mills (5-4)

Both teams are coming off series losses with each losing 3 of 4. The Brewers come in with the much better starter and lineup, so they should bounce back into the win column before the Cubs do.

Pick: Brewers -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Freddy Peralta (SP)

Willy Adames (SS)

Christian Yelich (OF)

Wilson Contreras (C)

Chicago White Sox @ Minnesota Twins 8:10 PM ET

Giolito (8-8) vs Burrows (0-0)

Lucas Giolito had 4 straight good outings prior to the last one where he was hit hard for 5 runs. This is an opener/bullpen game for the Twins. Both teams are feeling good, the White Sox just won 3 straight against their cross-town rival Cubs while the Twins earned a series split against the AL-best Astro’s.

Pick: White Sox -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tim Anderson (SS)

Yoan Moncada (3B)

Eloy Jimenez (OF)

Jorge Polanco (SS)

New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals 8:10 PM ET

Taillon (7-4) vs Hernandez (3-1)

Jameson Taillon has been one of baseball's hottest pitchers having won 6 of his last 8 starts. It’s hard not to pick him and the Yankees against the Royals but Carlos Hernandez for the Royals has been great his last two starts.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

DJ LeMahieu (1B/2B)

Giancarlo Stanton (OF)

Salvador Perez (C)

Whitt Merrifield (2B)

Miami Marlins @ San Diego Padres 10:10 PM ET

Thompson (2-4) vs Musgrove (7-7)

Joe Musgrove is on a roll right now having pitched 3 straight quality starts and winning two of them. Zach Thompson for the Marlins hasn’t pitched a quality start in over a month. The Marlins bullpen has to be exhausted after their long series in Colorado so the Padres should jump on Thompson early and get to the bullpen.

Pick: Padres -1.5

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Adam Frazier (2B)

Manny Machado (SS)

Tommy Pham (OF)

Daily Fantasy Lineup:

P: Jameson Taillon $8,100

C/1B: Jesus Aguilar $3,400

2B: DJ LeMahieu $3,400

3B: Yoan Moncada $2,800

SS: Jorge Polanco $3,700

OF: Whit Merrifield $3,100

OF: Christian Yelich $2,900

OF: Eloy Jimenez $3,100

UTIL: Manny Machado $4,000
