There are 16 games scheduled on Sunday, August 6, 2017, as the Royals and Mariners plan a doubleheader. The key pitching matchup will be Severino vs. Carrasco in Cleveland. Jimmy Nelson takes on Chris Archer in Tampa. Lester, Berrios and Stroman will all see action as well.
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 8/6/17
Alex: Anibal Sánchez has given up 3 HRs, .383 wOBA, 42.5% flyball 2.3HR/9 vs LHB over his last 4 starts. Here he gets BAL and you could pick a handful of guys, but I’m going with Seth Smith. Smith is 7-21 with 2 HRs vs. Sanchez and is hitting .345 since the all-star break with 2 HRs, a .345 ISO and a .487 wOBA.
Chris: Justin Upton has 4 HRs in his last 6 games. He’s a streaky hitter who’s hot right now and today is set up to continue the trend. Upton is 9 for 33 against Ubaldo with 4 doubles, a triple, and 2 HRs. I’m looking for J-Up to send a souvenir out of Camden Yards today.
