Gambling911.com has your John Lackey Daily Fantasy Baseball profile updated April 18, 2016.
Lackey (2-0, 5.68 and priced at $8500) struck out seven over 6.2 innings Wednesday against the Reds, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks in a 9-2 win. (Wed Apr 13).
As an average pitcher at best, his price is a tad too high especially playing in a Monday night game against the Cards where batters are expected to light things up.
Four of the last six games played in St. Louis have resulted in 10 runs or better.
While both Matt Holliday and Stephen Piscotty both hit right-handed pitchers at a well above average rate, Holliday is 0-for-7 against Lackey to date.
Piscotty may present a good play in Monday night’s limited slate of games.
*Seven of the last ten games in the Cardinals-Cubs series had gone OVER 8.5.
