Only 7 games fill the slates on Monday, August 7. Mad max has the Marlins in town. Arrieta starts in San Francisco. Target Field will feature Suter vs. Santana.
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 8/7/17:
Garret: Willson Contreras is scorching right now. Tomorrow he gets Matt Moore, who has actually turned his game around a little lately. Since July 1st , Willson is batting .346. In 105 AB’s he has 35 hits 20 singles, 5 doubles and 10 dongs. That’s right 10!! The Cubs travel to AT&T Park tomorrow and should be able to handle the pathetic SF Giants. If Willson happens to get the day off then you can always go with Rizzo, who is 3 for 3 off of Matt Moore with 2 dongs. Also, just for fun I’m predicting Jake Arrieta hits a dong also
Chris: On a small slate, I’m picking on the Great American Smallpark. Tim Adleman is giving up 2.1 HR/9, the highest on the slate. Austin Hedges has a 61% flyball rate over his last 5 games. That will play very well in Cincy. His Batted Ball distance is up 17 feet from season long average (227 feet). His Exit Velocity is up to 92 mph, up 3 mph. In the event Hector Sanchez starts for Hedges, I’m taking him too.
