We have 15 games tonight with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Joey Votto and the Cincinnati Reds, taking on Michael Conforto and the New York Mets in New York. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the Toronto Blue Jays (6.3), Los Angeles Dodgers (5.3) and the Detroit Tigers (5.2).
The weather looks good across the board today so we shouldn’t expect any games to be delayed or postponed.
Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 7/30/21 (using DraftKings Values)
|First Base||Joey Votto||$4,700|
|Third Base||Patrick Wisdom||$4,200|
Lance Lynn – P ($10,000) – Coming into today’s game, Lynn hasn’t given up more than one run in each of his last five starts. He will have a good matchup today against Cleveland so he should be in a good position to get the win as well.
Joey Votto – 1B ($4,700) – Votto is on some kind of streak. He has now hit a home run in six straight games, and he has hit two home runs in two of his last three games. This is a great price for what might be the hottest player in baseball right now.
Patrick Wisdom – 3B ($4,200) – The Cubs’ recent moves should cement Wisdom in a spot in the middle of the lineup. He has a hit in four straight games, and in his last three games, he has hit two home runs and a double.
Bryce Harper – OF ($6,200) – You will need to keep an eye on your lineup to ensure that Harper is playing after coming out of last night’s game with “back tightness”. He has hits in eight of his last ten starts, and he has home two doubles and a home run in his last three games.
Aaron Judge – OF ($4,600) This is a great price for Judge, who is usually a 5k+ player. He has a hit in five of his last six games, and the Yankees have added players at the deadline who have high OBP’s so his opportunity to get more RBI should be increase as well.

Logan Gilbert ($7,200 DK) Gilbert has shown a lot of promise this season. In his last five starts, he hasn’t given up more than three runs and striking out no less than five batters. He will get to face the offensively challenged Rangers tonight, so we might see another good start from him.
Tarik Skubal ($7,500) – Skubal has had some struggles in some of his more recent starts, but he will face the Orioles at home tonight, so he should be able to get some strikeouts, and have a good chance to get the win as well.
Ryan Weathers ($6,600) – The biggest risk with Weathers is if he will go deep enough into the game for you to get the win. He is facing a Rockies team that isn’t getting any better, so if he can get to five innings and be in line for the win, then you could have a really nice value on your hands.
The Value Players
Dalton Varsho C/OF ($3,700) – Varscho’s hot streak continues. He has hit a home run in four of his last six games, and he has a hit in six of his last seven games.
Rodolfo Castro – 2B/3B ($2,400) – It would seem that when Castro is getting hits they are home runs. He has two multi-home run games in his last five games. He will face a Phillies starter tonight who has an ERA over 5.5 so there should be opportunities for him tonight.
Brent Rooker – OF ($3,200) – Rooker has hits in five straight games, and in those five games, he has accumulated three home runs and two doubles. He has been hitting at the top of the Twins lineup, which should help ensure that his production levels stay high.
Detroit Tigers – Every player who is in the top five of the Tigers lineup are all below $4,400. I would go with Baddoo, Schoop, and Grossman, but feel free to mix and match with the Tigers.
Los Angeles Dodgers – The Dodgers are typically a tough team to stack, but you can get Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Will Smith, and others all for under 5k.
Cincinnati Reds – The Reds come into tonight with one of the hottest hitters in baseball, in Joey Votto, and you can add Jesse Winker and Kyle Farmer with him and have a nice low-cost stack going against Carlos Carrasco who is making his first start of the season, and likely won’t go deep into the game.
