04/24/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes


Slate Overview:

  • 6 Games

  • Weather Concerns:

  • I would stay away from the OAK @ BAL game.

  • Watch for rain delays in the ARI @ ATL game.

  • Another coors slate booooo.


  • ARI TT o3.5 (-115)

  • TEX/CWS o8 (+110)


Home Run Call(S):.

  • Carson Kelley - Kelly over the past 2 seasons has mashed LHP's with 40% Hard Contact, .291 ISO, 43.2% FB%. Smiley over the past 2 years has given up almost .100 more ISO to RHH's and allowed a 49% HC rate & 43.5% FB rate.

  • Less confident but would bet that a few HR's will come from this group - Matt Chapman,Stephen Piscotty, Brad Miller, Bryce Harper, Ronald Acuna



  • PHI - Big hitters going up against a bad pitcher in Coors, I think the optimal way to approach these situations is try to play your 3 man or a one off and capture some of the homerun equity while enabling yourself to differentiate elsewhere.

  • ATL - On smaller slates like these a game stack makes for a great gpp play.

  • OAK - Weather has me scared but if you think it plays both teams in this game are ina good sport and would have depressed ownership.
