We have a twelve-game slate with the first pitch at 1:07 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies, taking on Francisco Lindor and the New York Mets in New York. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the Toronto Blue Jays(6.4), Cincinnati Reds (5.3), the Milwaukee Brewers (5.3).

There is a better than 20 percent chance of rain in St.Louis today so there is a chance of a rain delay or a postponed game.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 6/27/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherZack Wheeler $10,300
 First BaseNate Lowe $4,300
 Second BaseBrendan Rodgers $3,900
 Third Base   
 Short StopXander Bogaerts $4,400
 OutfieldJoey Gallo $4,500

Zack Wheeler  – P ($10,300)

Wheeler has only given up three runs over his last three starts, which includes a 12 strikeout game against the Dodgers. He hasn’t been great in his two starts against the Mets this year, but the Mets have been among the worst hitting teams in MLB over the last two weeks with a team triple slash of 0.198/0.285/0.294, all of which are among the 5 worst in the league in that two-week time span.

Nate Lowe – 1B ($4,300)

Lowe is a player that runs hot and cold and he is hot right now. He has two multi-hit games in his last four starts, and he has a double, a triple, and a home run in his last five games.

Brendan Rodgers – 2B ($3,900)

Rodgers has at least a hit in his last four games, with two of those games being of the multi-hit variety. Also in those four games, he has a double, a triple, and a home run. You’re getting all of this at a nice price, and he will be in a good hitters’ environment in Milwaukee today.

Xander Bogaerts – SS ($4,400)

We are getting Bogaerts today because he is facing Gerrit Cole today, but we shouldn’t shy away from him because of matchups. He is among the best hitting shortstops in baseball, and Cole has given up at least one home run in each of his last four starts.

Joey Gallo – OF ($4,500)

When Gallo is going well he is doing two things really well, he is drawing walks, and he is hitting home runs. He is doing both of those things right now, with him hitting two home runs yesterday while getting a walk on 40 percent of his plate appearances.

Now what do you get if you sign up now? • Seven days free trial to read every and ALL of our content. • Full lineup support for the 50-50 lineup above • A more risky full lineup for a GPP. • A number of alternative picks that you mix in for some variations on your core lineups. Much more.

The A List

Kyle Schwarber – OF ($4,500 DK) Schwarber had his hitting streak come to an end yesterday, but he has been on a home run hitting surge lately with four home runs in his last five games, and ten home runs in his last seven games.

Jake Odorizzi – P ($6,900) – Odorizzi is coming off a five inning, nine strikeout effort earlier in the week, where he didn’t give up any runs in Baltimore. Today he will face a Tigers team that has been playing better lately, but by in large has been toothless.

The B List

Alec Bohm – 3B ($3,900) – After a rough start to the season Bohm has started to play better. He has two doubles in his last four games, and he has a four hit game earlier in the week.

Ross Stripling – P ($6,800) – Stripling has been a good pitcher recently, he has only given up more than two runs once in his last five starts. What also makes this a nice start is the Orioles bats have started to go cold as they own a 0.338 SLG and a 0.274 OBP over the last two weeks.

The C List

Dylan Carlson – OF ($3,600) – Carlson has been among the brighter spots for the Cardinals among their recent struggles. He has hits in four of his last five games, including a home run just two nights ago. He will be facing a rookie pitching against Pittsburgh today so there should be opportunity for Carlson to have a nice day at the top of the Cardinals order.

Christian Vásquez – C ($3,500 DK) Vasquez has five hits in his last three games, and a steal. His feels like a player who is consistently underpriced, which is why you read about him so much in these pages.

The Strategy

In Cash games today, we will want to pay up for pitching, we have pitchers in good situations like Zack Wheeler, and Max Scherzer, so getting one of them makes a lot of sense, and then pairing them with someone cheaper like Odorizzi or Stripling so you can get some hitting balance as well. In GPP, I would be willing to pair Odorizzi with Stripling and then spend big on bats, especially with a team like Toronto having a really high implied run total today.
