Washington Nationals @ Philadelphia Phillies – 7:05 PM ET

  • Corbin (6-9) vs Wheeler (8-5)
  • The Nationals are looking like major sellers before the upcoming trade deadline, losing 5 straight and 7 of 10. The Phillies meanwhile are playing well since the All-Star break and making a push towards the division lead. I’ll take the much better pitcher here with Zack Wheeler and the Phillies offense to outslug the Nationals.

Pick: Phillies -1.5

  • Daily Fantasy picks:
  • Juan Soto (OF) $4400

Miami Marlins @ Baltimore Orioles – 7:05 PM ET

  • TBD vs Lopez (2-12)
  • The Orioles have won 3 straight and 6 of 10 however, Lopez is just 2-12 this season and doesn’t pitch deep into games. One bright spot and valuable trade chip to watch is Starling Marte for the Marlins, who is batting .459 over the last two weeks

Pick: Marlins Win

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

Starling Marte (OF) $4100

Milwaukee Brewers @ Pittsburgh Pirates – 7:05 PM ET

Lauer (3-4) vs TBD

The last place Pirates take on the first-place Brewers. The Brewers are one of the best teams in baseball on the road and starting pitcher Lauer has a 0.77 era the last month. Take the Brewers. This game also offers two very low-budget outfielders for daily fantasy.

Pick: Brewers -1.5

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

  • Tyrone Taylor (OF) $2400
  • Gregory Polanco (OF) $2600

St. Louis Cardinals @ Cleveland Indians – 1:10 PM ET

Kim (6-5) vs Plesac (5-3)

The Cardinals offense has heated up with Dylan Carlson at the top of the lineup and Harrison Bader at the bottom both crushing the ball lately. Cardinals starting pitcher Kim has also been one of the best pitchers the last month with a 0.90 era.

Pick: Cardinals Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Arenado (3B) $3100

Bader (OF) $3000

Toronto Blue Jays @ Boston Red Sox – 7:10 PM ET

Matz (8-5) vs Houck (0-2)

Both starting pitchers have pitched well lately. This game could be low scoring, or at least for the first 5 innings before both pitchers are likely pulled. Kike Hernandez just won AL Player of the week and has always hit well against lefties.

Pick: Under

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

T Hernandez (OF) $3700

Springer (OF) $4300

K Hernandez (2B/OF) $3300

Atlanta Braves @ New York Mets – 7:10 PM ET

Fried (7-6) vs Megill (1-0)

Atlanta pitcher Fried has just been so hit and miss that he’s hard to trust. Met’s pitcher Megill has been great lately, throwing back-to-back 6 innings and no runs. The Mets are also great at home. Take the Mets.

Pick: Mets Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Freeman (1B) $4300

Riley (3B) $3300

Alonso (1B) $3800

New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays – 7:00 PM ET

Cortes (0-0) vs Wacha (2-2)

This game should see a lot of offense as both pitchers have high era’s and not pitched deep into games. The Yankees still seem lost even as they appear to be buyers at the trade deadline. One bright spot for the Yankees has been Gleyber Torres the last two weeks hitting .300 with 3 HR’s. With the Rays surging towards the division lead, take them at home.

Pick: Rays Win

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

Torres (2B/SS) $3200

Arozarena (OF) $3100

Cincinnati Reds @ Chicago Cubs – 8:05 PM ET

Mahle (7-3) vs Davies (6-6)

The Cubs are obvious trade deadline sellers while the Reds look to be buyers. Joey Votto for the Reds has been on fire lately. Davies for the Cubs hasn’t pitched over 5 innings in over a month. Take the Reds on the road.

Pick: Reds Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Votto (1B) $3600

Arizona D-backs @ Texas Rangers – 8:05 PM ET

Bumgarner (4-6) vs Lyles (5-7)

Two of baseballs worst teams face off in Texas with what might actually be a low scoring game. Both veteran pitchers have been solid lately and both typically pitch deep into games. If D-Backs catcher Daulton Varsho becomes an option on daily fantasy, use him. He’s hitting .400 with 3 homeruns the last two weeks.

Pick: Under

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

Varsho (C)

Detroit Tigers @ Minnesota Twins – 1:10 PM ET

Peralta (3-2) vs Happ (5-5)

Hard to trust either pitcher here, especially Happ with his +6 era. Both teams don’t provide a ton on offense, but the Tigers do have a few more bats to trust at the top of the lineup.  I’ll take the Tigers on the road.

Pick: Tigers Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Schoop (1B/2B) $3400

Kepler (OF) $3500

Chicago White Sox @ Kansas City Royals – 8:10 PM ET

Giolito (8-7) vs Bubic (3-4)

The Royals are surging right now, having won 6 straight, and backed by Jorge Soler’s 6 homeruns in his last 6 games and 4 in his last 2. That said, I would still take the much better team and much better starting pitcher. Giolito has pitched great his last 3 outings.

Pick: White Sox -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Soler (OF) $2800

Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Angels – 9:38 PM ET

Gonzalez (3-6) and Heaney (6-7)

The Rockies are historically bad on the road and have the lesser starting pitcher here. Angels pitcher is also topic of trade bait, but if he pitches well he could stay put as the Angels battle for a playoff spot. Get hot hitting Jack Mayfield in your lineup, super cheap option for SS!

Pick: Angels -1.5

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

Blackmon (OF) $3000

Mayfield (SS) $2200

Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants – 9:45 PM ET

Buehler (10-1) vs DeScalfani (10-4)

Huge matchup here in an NL West battle for first place. Walker Buehler has been outstanding vs the Giants this year. In his 4 games, he’s gone 27 innings with a 1.00 ERA. Although DeSclafani is having a great season, he has an 8.84 era vs the Dodgers this season and has actually pitched better on the road than at home.

Pick: Dodgers Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Taylor (2B/OF) $4000

W Smith (C) $3700

Muncy (1B/2B) $3900

Posey (C/1B) $3200

Oakland Athletics @ San Diego Padres – 1:10 PM ET

Manaea (7-6) vs Snell (4-3)

Lefty vs Lefty matchup here with Manea for the Athletics continuing to be consistent each outing while Snell for the Padres is a completely different pitcher at home than he is away. Home: 1.43 era, Away: 8.02 era. I will lean low scoring here with an edge to the Padres due to Snell at home.

Pick: Padres Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tatis Jr (SS) $4400

Pham (OF) $3100

Houston Astros @ Seattle Mariners – 10:10 PM ET

McCullers Jr. (7-2) vs Flexen (9-4)

The Seattle Mariners are hot right now, having won 4 straight, 7 of 10, and just swept the Oakland A’s to pull within 1 game of the final wild card spot. They take on Houston at home feeling really good about themselves right now. McCullers for the Astro’s has been great, but so has Flexen for Seattle. Kyle Tucker for Houston and Mitch Hanniger for Seattle are each on a bit of a tear right now and definitely worth a roster spot in daily fantasy.

Pick: Under

--

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tucker (OF) $3500

Haniger (OF) $3300

Daily Fantasy Lineup:

  • P: Walker Buehler $10,500
  • C/1B: Joey Votto $3600
  • 2B: Max Muncy $3900
  • 3B: Austin Riley $3300
