05/14/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes

Updated: May 14, 2021


Slate Overview:

  • 13 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • Rain:

  • OAK @ MIN

  • CIN @ COL

  • Wind:

  • PHI @ TOR – Wind blowing 15+ MPH in Dunedin I believe, site I usually use has the Rogers Center still listed so not 100% sure.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • We have a massive 13 game slate today so you don't need to focus too much on ownership since there will be plenty of options today.

  • The chalk will be centered around Coors and the PHI @ TOR game since Dunedin is the equivelent of a minor league park.

  • I went ahead and made a chart of team hitting #'s over the last 14 days compared to the whole season if that helps. (View it here)


  • David Peterson o6 K's (Even Odds)


Home Run Call(S):

  • David Bote

  • Kyle Tucker



  • CIN

  • WAS

  • TOR

  • PHI


  • HOU - The Astros might not have ownership today because they left a bad taste in everyone mouth after dissapointing as a viable pivot off of Coors, If you watched the game and calculate LOB per batter instead of per inning the Astros left 33 Runers on base........33!!!!! Rangers pitcher Wes Benjamin doesnt have a ton of data on him but out of the small sample size there is a "Whole Lotta Red" (Focus on Yuli, Bregman, Yordan, Tucker).

  • CHC - I would avoid LHHs (.045 ISO) against Skubal hes done very well against them over the last 2 years but gets absoutly swamped by RHHs (.428 ISO). I would focus on (Contreras, Bryant, Baez, Bote, Hoerner).

  • MIL - I dont like them as a big stack but a 3 man of (Pina, Taylor, Garcia) is very cheep and they do well against LHPs and Smyly is some hot garbo.
