We have been pretty successful with the Monkey Knife Fight plays and we have another good one for the early slate today. Take a look back to our last MLB play HERE. Now let’s get right into today’s matchup.
Today we are playing the head to head fantasy matchup so here’s a summary of the scoring:
1B: +1 Point
2B: +2 Points
3B: +3 Points
HR: +4 Points
R: +1 Point
RBI: +1 Point
BB: +1 Point
HBP: +1 Point
SB: +1 Point
Aaron Judge over Byron Buxton – Judge is starting this matchup with the +0.5 spread so I’ll take that all day. There’s been a lot of talk about him under performing this season but the Yankees have been overall. All I know is that he looked good last night when he went 2 for 4 with 2 homeruns. I’ll ride the hot hand again today. He will face Spencer Turnbull today who he is 1 for 3 lifetime against. Buxton is going up against Danny Duffy who he is only hitting .231 against in his career so fantasy points could be tough to come by for him today.
Nelson Cruz over Jesus Aguilar – Cruz is the guy to focus on in this matchup. He will also be facing Danny Duffy but he has tremendous numbers against him in his career. He has a .370 average against him and he has taken him deep 5 times in his career. Cruz is having a good season hitting .329 with 7 homeruns. I expect him to have a big game today against Duffy. Aguilar will be facing Patrick Corbin who he is just 3 for 12 against in his career.
This one has a 3 to 1 payout if we hit them both, let’s get it!
