DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Pitchers, Sunday 8/12

Josh Engleman



Best MLB Bets today odds betting picks free expert lines predictions Chris Sale prop over/under 7.5 strikeouts

The following Spotlight Pitchers were selected by’s Director of Content Josh Engleman.

Chris Sale [5.9 IP, 1.9 ER, 10.3 K, 1.2 BB]

  • The clear best option

I get it. Sale is just coming back from the DL. He’s probably only going ~85 pitches. It doesn‘t matter to me. Sale projects to mow down the Orioles even in limited innings. Baltimore strikes out so much that even a pitch count won‘t stop me. The Orioles have the lowest implied total on the slate, too. I‘m hoping that the pitch count keeps people off of Sale a bit. If I can get leverage on a under-owner Chris Sale, I‘ll be a very happy man.

Jake Arrieta [5.7 IP, 2.2 ER, 5.8 K, 1.5 BB]

  • Mid-tier value

If you’re looking to pay down a bit, I think Arrieta is in a nice spot. It’s always a good idea to have a pitcher in Petco. The Padres have been really bad against right handed pitching this season, and, much like the Orioles, they strike out a ton. Arrieta has one of the highest floors of the day, and he’s someone I’d be interested to use in a cash game scenario. You can even use Arrieta with Sale. I have them in a couple lines with the Twins as a main stack.
