The weekend series begin on Friday, July 21 with 15 games. Scherzer is in Arizona taking on Godley. Chris Sale visits Trout and the Angels. Also, as the drool builds in the corners of our mouths, the Astros will face Ubaldo Jimenez at Camden Yards.
Johnny G invites the MLB experts from Hammer DFS to take an early look at who they predict will go deep to help you fill out your rosters on DraftKings and FanDuel.
Up and down your squad, everyone needs home runs in their DFS lineups. From your high-priced stars hitting value with one swing to your low-owned, minimum-priced punt helping you take down a big dollar contest, we all dig the long ball. The experts will be digging through the match-ups and stats to find players in good spots and sharing them with you.
If you need more than a four-bagger to get your bankroll growing, Hammer DFS has a full-service chat to get you back on track. Check out a sample of what their members pulled in recently:
Here are Johnny G’s Home Run predictions for 7/21/17:
Garret: James Shields is giving up 2.34 HR/9. Poor guy can hardly get his fastball to move anymore . Mike Moustakas has a 51% FB rate for the month of July with 33% Hard contact. 40% Hard contact against RHP. Shields’ outing should not be complete without a Moose Dong ! 😬
Alex: Dustin Pedroia has a .379 AVG with a HR, 8 RBIs and 0 Ks since the break. Pedey has a decent .285 wOBA vs Nolasco, but seriously its NOLASCO. He might as well throw batting practice giving up a 2.1 HR/9 vs righties.
Chris: Evan Gattis has found his power stroke lately. He has 8 XBHs, including 5 HRs, in his last 8 starts. Gattis is 4 for 11 with a double and a home run against Ubaldo for his career. Gattis is averaging 255 feet Batted Ball Distance over his last 6 games (up 36 feet over his yearlong average). Over the same period, he’s averaging 94 mph Exit Velocity (up 3 mph) and his Hard Hit % is up 4%. Ubaldo is averaging 5 earned runs in less than 5 innings over his last 3 starts.
