05/01/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes

Updated: May 1, 2021


Slate Overview:

  • 6 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • The dome will probably be closed in the BOS @ TEX game but keep an eye on that.

  • Thoughts at first glance

  • Arizona crushes lefties and Gomber isnt anything to write home about.

  • Blake Snell will have a tough matchup in the Giants who do very well against lefties.

  • In GPPs I am going to try to get a combination of EROD/Woodruff/Gallen.


  • SEA o3.5 (-115)


Home Run Call(S):

  • Kyle Lewis, Rafael Devers, Carson Kelly



  • ATL

  • BOS

  • ARI


  • SEA - Canning is projected to be chalk but this seattle team has some pop they make for a good leverage play. I would focus: (Kyle Lewis, Mitch Haniger, Kyle Seager, Taylor Trammell,Jose Marmolejos).

  • SD - DeSclafani has looked great so far on the year but in a smaller slate you need to get different, DeSclafani historically has struggled alot more with lefties and the Padres have a potential of 5 of them tonight in (Caratini, Hosmer, Cronenworth, Grisham, Profar).



  • Eduardo Rodriguez

  • Griffin Canning - I will fade at his projected ownership tonight.

  • Dustin May


  • Brandon Woodruff - If a matchup vs the Dodgers keeps ownership off of him I will be more than happy to go there in tournaments.

  • Zac Gallen
