August 26th, 2015 MLB Betting & DFS Tips

Updated: August 26, 2015

We had an awesome 4-0 night last night that brings us to 6-0 on the week! Hopefully we can keep things going today and continue our money making ways. We have three games that we really like today and we’ll be focusing on those.

The Brewers and Indians continue their series tonight and I really like this as an underrated stack game. Jimmy Nelson has looked good for the Brewers thus far this season, but he has really struggled against left handed batters. Lefty hitters have a .386 wOBA against him this season and the Indians boast tough lefties in Brantley, Lindor, Chisenhall and Kipnis. They could definitely do some damage tonight. Chase Anderson goes for the Indians and I like targeting him coming off a DL stint. He was meant to make a rehab start earlier this week, but that was canceled when Carlos Carrasco hit the DL. That should favor the Brewers who hit him pretty hard back in July, collecting 10 hits in just 2 2/3 innings. I like this game for a contrarian stack and as an over.

My other favorite single game stack of the night is the Dodgers at the Reds. David Holmberg goes for the Reds and he has been a gas can in his four starts on the season. His 6.57 ERA is bad, but having the same amount of walks as strikeouts is worse. The Dodgers hit righties hard and should do very well in the hitter friendly Great American Ballpark tonight. He goes against Brett Anderson who has been solid, but nowhere near the level of his ace teammates. He’ll have a tough time this evening against Todd Frazier, Eugenio Suarez and Brandon Phillips who all do well against lefties. This one is going over.

In our final pick of the night we have the Angels taking on the Tigers. This one is all about Justin Verlander who has been pitching like his younger self lately (and it might just be for real). In his past six starts he holds an ERA of just 1.67 with a 0.88 WHIP. Even more impressive is that he has gone six or more innings in each of those starts and allowed one run or less in five of six. He’s been really good lately and this struggling Angels offense should have a tough time with him today. He goes against Hector Santiago who is probably due for a regression at some point as his ERA is over a full run lower than his FIP. The Tigers hit lefties well too, but I still like the under on this one. It’s not going to be very warm out and I think the ball stays in the park.
