Each day of the MLB season will bring us some major price differences among starting pitchers on all sites. These price discrepancies and the site's roster differences can alter the way we use pitchers on each site, as well as how the field of opponents will use them. Listed below are five of today's top pitchers, each with their salary listed as well as the cafe value that takes into account both the total salary cap on the site and points-per-dollar. We've also provided some betting info for you reference. The higher the cafe value, the better the points-per-dollar play is.
You can easily target Maeda in all formats this evening, as a culmination of factors are working in his favor. First off, the -240 moneyline at home is far and away the highest mark on the board, signifying Maeda is a pitcher you can rely upon to earn an all-important victory. Secondly, Arizona checks in as one of the lowest projected scoring teams on the board, as the Vegas oddsmakers really like Maeda's prospects tonight. The Dodgers' pitcher didn't peform well against the D-Backs earlier this month, but we can attribute that to a poor park factor in Arizona. Maeda has been "money in the bank" at home, and he tossed six scoreless innnings against the D-Backs at Dodgers Stadium earlier this season. We can deploy him in all formats on all sites, especially holding a favorable price point on FanDuel and Yahoo.
