W touched on Stephen Strasburg in the main picks article and he's still the top option in both cash games and tournaments. We'll now look at Luis Severino, who is just a bit cheaper. Severino is absolutely an elite arm and has proven that all season long. Through 100 innings, he has sported a .299 wOBA against lefties and a .269 against righties. He's striking out over 10 batters per 9 innings and has held opposing batters to a 29% hard contact rate. He has dominated both sides of the plate and hasn't shown any peripherals to suggest regression. He's also at home, where he's held a combined .277 wOBA. He faces off with the Brewers, who are certainly one of the worst teams in the league. Against righties, they have struck out over 25% of the time, sitting 2nd in all of baseball. Ryan Braun and Eric Thames are the 2 bats to worry about, but they strike out a lot and even if they do connect, thy should make up for it with K's. Severino is always going to carry some risk and in Yankee Stadium, lefties can always run into luck. With that being said, he's also an amazing pitcher at this point and I'm willing to take the risk at home. Strasburg is still preferred, but don't be afraid to take a shot on Severino if you have a feeling.
Righties against the Padres has been a thing for what seems like 20 years. They actually don't hold the worst wOBA in the league against righties, but there pretty close. They have ranked 28th in the league with a .299 wOBA and 25.6% strikeout rate. Wil Myers is really the only guy to worry about and while the other 8 always have a chance of coming through, they are below average MLB hitters. Aaron Nola has been a bit weird this year, but has started to turn it around as expected. He was one of the best prospects in the league before last year and has definitely proven why. Over the last 6 games, he's been over 5 innings in each game and has hit 7 innings in 4 of them. He's striking out 9 batters per 9 innings and at home, 10. Nola is also a bit cheaper than Strasburg and Severino and will let you pay up elsewhere for some bats. If you want safety, Nola is facing one of the leat intimidating offenses around and ctahces them on the road.
