I don’t mean to just go on and on about my fake teams or how well I’ve been doing lately, but damn, your humble-but-nonetheless-handsome Guru is on fire. The turban is smokin’! Last night I cashed in five of six contests and the team I gave you yesterday banked as well. Did you play it? Why not, don’t like money?! Just six games on the slate tonight with some high over/unders in Texas and Colorado. Guess who I’m stacking?
Here’s your dirty turbaned Guru’s team for Thursday 6/5. Good luck, cheers.
All values are based on DraftKings pricing.
SP 1 – Wily Peralta, $8,300: Peralta has looked good for the Brewers this year with a 1.88 ERA and 23 K’s over 24 innings in road starts. Michael Wacha is tempting, but the Royals don’t strikeout enough and I want a good share of tonight’s pri$ey bats.
SP 2 – Travis Wood, $6,800: Wood has struggled lately, but he gets a Mets team that likes to swing and mi$$…a lot.
C – Miguel Montero, $4,000: Monty had a dong last night and crushes lefties with a .369 wOBA this year. Oh, did I mention this game is at Coor$?
1B – Paul Goldschmidt, $5,400: Goldy went 3-for-5 last night and put up 27 FPTS. Can he get 30 tonight? *shakes Magic 8-Ball* “It is decidedly $o.”
2B – Jonathan Schoop, $2,900: Gotta save somewhere and, for a punt play, $choop has average 10 FPTS over his last three games.
3B – Martin Prado, $4,200: There are $ome nice options at third tonight with Adrian Beltre the best of the bunch. I’ll look to save a little and plug in Prado who had three hits, two runs and an RBI last night.
SS – Troy Tulowitzki, $5,800: I believe it was the Greek philosopher Heraclitus that said, “Troy Tulowitzki is very good at baseball.”
OF 1 – Charlie Blackmon, $4,800: Shin-Soo Choo is another outfield to target around this price, but he’s been in a bit of a slump lately. Blackmon is poised for a big night as he leads off and faces $oft tossing righty Bronson “I’m Bad at Guitar” Arroyo.
OF 2 – Corey Dickerson, $4,000: Dickerson is one of my top 5 outfielders tonight, hits in the top of the order and the stars have aligned in Colorado for the Rockies to $core 452 runs.
OF 3 – Gerardo Parra, $3,600: This pri$e is way to cheap for a player that went 3-for-4 with four runs and two RBI last night. Rico Sauve will be in all my lineups tonight.
Good luck and remember to always check daily lineups and weather conditions.
