DraftKings contributors Steve Buchanan and Garion Thorne join The Sweat to give their favorite DraftKings play for Tuesday’s MLB slate.Watch the entire baseball segment below!
(Nolan Arenado has) a fantastic matchup against Paolo Espino, who has just been absolutely terrible for the Nationals his last 12 starts. In those 12 outings, he’s giving up 2.9 home runs per nine to opposing right-handed batters. Nolan Arenado, if not for Paul Goldschmidt, we would be talking about so, so much more this season. He’s been absolutely incredible: 10 home runs (and) a 181 wRC+ since the All-Break.
With the way that Bichette has been hitting, he has a legitimate shot to go for 20 (DKFP).
There should be a lot of offense in this game tonight for the Orioles and Blue Jays. These teams have faced each other 11 times this season. The over has hit in nine of those games. These two teams are averaging over 10 runs per game in those 11 games. They absolutely crush each other. It’s been incredible.
With the way Bichette has been hitting — his season felt like it was lost as recently as last week. All of a sudden, he’s starting to turn around — and at the right time, too. The Blue Jays need his bat if they want to (keep) one of these Wild Card spots. Good matchup against Kyle Bradish, who has just been a gas can all season long.
Garion’s Pick: Nolan Arenado ($6,100)
Steve’s Pick: Bo Bichette ($5,600)
