MLB Underdog Fantasy Top Picks July 20

Tyler Glasnow, Tampa Bay Rays – UNDER 8.0 Strikeouts

There’s no denying Tyler Glasnow’s elite-level strikeout stuff that makes him a threat to post double-digit K’s in any given outing. Even so, this line is a bit too high for tonight’s tough matchup against a division rival. The Baltimore Orioles have just a 14.0% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitching since the All-Star break with a .326 wOBA. The offense has been a big reason why the O’s are now tied atop the AL East standings with the Tampa Bay Rays and they’re regularly making life tough on opposing pitchers. Overall this season, Baltimore’s 21.5% K rate vs righties is among the top 10 of the league. As for Glasnow, he’s actually been under eight strikeouts in five of nine starts this season with exactly eight in two other outings. His only big K performances have come against the Mariners (11) and Royals (12) – two very strikeout-prone offenses. The Orioles haven’t been that and will make Glasnow earn his K’s tonight – especially with first place in the division on the line. The Rays’ righty struck out seven vs Baltimore a month ago while allowing six runs as well. 

Kyle Tucker, Houston Astros – OVER 9.5 Fantasy Points

In case you haven’t noticed, Kyle Tucker is on fire at the plate right now. The Houston Astros outfielder is hitting .473 with six RBI, three runs scored, and four walks in the past five games since the All-Star break. He also boasts a .385 BA and 1.130 OPS in the month of July. Look for Tucker to keep it going tonight against Hogan Harris. The Oakland Athletics starter is sporting a 6.51 ERA and 1.47 WHIP this year and he’s allowed a combined total of 17 runs and 23 hits over just the past three outings. Left-handed hitters have a .281 BA this season vs the lefty Harris. Meanwhile, Tucker is smashing southpaw pitchers with a .351 BA and .957 OPS in the split. Plus, his .330 BA on the road gives us another split in his favor tonight.
