Fanduel MLB Experts Picks & Lineup advice - May 5

Pitchers

 

Danny Salazar CLE @ KAN   FD $10,200 DK $10,000

No club has crossed the plate fewer times than the Royals, and both Hosmer and Cain will have to do more than what they did on Wednesday to prove they are emerging from slumps. The Indians are 17-8 in their last 25 on the road, 36-16 in their last 52 against right-handed starters, 7-2 in their last nine against opponents with winning percentages under .400, 8-0 in the last eight meetings between the two teams, and 5-0 in their last five at Kansas City. The Royals are 2-10 in their last 12 overall, 3-13 in their last 16 against the American League Central, 8-20 in their last 28 against right-handed starters, and 0-5 in Hammel’s last five starts. Look for those trends to continue.

 

Chris Archer TAM vs. TOR   FD $9,600 DK $9,600

Chris Archer will look to go 3-1 on Friday night, and while 3-1 doesn’t sound that amazing, when you lost 19 games the year before, it sounds pretty good actually.  He has the talent and that was evidenced early in his career, and even with 19 losses, he didn’t pitch that bad last year, and had a respectable ERA.  This year he appears to be back in form however. He has made six starts, and in four of them he has allowed two earned runs or less. His other starts were a five run and four run performance.  Still, you can live with that occasional start, if he’s holding the opponent to two runs or less in two thirds of his starts.  He has 37 K’s in 39.1 innings, so you know he can still get a K when he needs one.

 

Michael Fulmer DET @ OAK   FD $9,400 DK $8,000

Fulmer was strong against just about everyone last season, and Oakland was no exception. In his only start against the A’s, he did not allow a single run in 7.2 innings of work. Oakland’s offense has been disappointing at best in 2017, so more success should be in the cards for Fulmer. Detroit is 21-8 in Fulmer’s last 29 starts, 11-5 in his last 16 road starts, and 7-2 in his last nine starts against losing opponents. the Athletics are 1-8 in their last nine overall, 1-6 in their last seven against winning opponents, 2-10 in their last 12 at home against winning opponents, and 1-6 in their last seven against right-handed starters. Expect those trends to continue.
