Zach Plesac OVER 5.5 Ks -148 2 units to win 1.35 units: Unfortunately, there is a lot of juice today on pitchers for DK tonight. -148 was one of the better lines I could find. Plesac has had a great start to the season and he is looking to build on that tonight against a poor Tigers team that really struggles hitting the ball. Every player in the lineup tonight has a k% over 20% with one all the way up at 35%. Plesac isn’t an amazing pitcher but he gets it done with volume. His k/9 is only 8.5 but makes up for it by consistently pitching over 6 innings. He averages a little under 7 innings and close to 100 pitches a game. This season Plesac’s Slider has been killing Righties. He throws a slider 33% of the time, with a strike rate at 40%. The righties for the Tigers all struggle hitting sliders with all of them having a whiff % over 35%. While the lefties will have to deal with changeups, he throws a change up to lefties 30% of the time as well, with a strike rate of 30%. Both the righties and the lefties struggle hitting against a changeup as well. If we can see 7 innings from Plesac tonight he should have an easy time getting over 5.5 Ks!
