MLB Underdog Fantasy Top Picks July 27

Tanner Bibee, Cleveland Guardians – UNDER 2.5 Earned Runs

Tanner Bibee is putting together an impressive rookie season for the Cleveland Guardians and he’s been the model of consistency lately. The right-hander has allowed two earned runs or fewer in five straight starts and boasts a stellar 1.14 ERA across four July outings. Going back further, he’s given up less than three earned runs in 11 of 15 starts this season. Bibee’s 4.38 road ERA is a tad concerning, but it’s also misleading because he gave up six runs to the Padres in one of those road outings. Tonight on the road, this matchup vs the Chicago White Sox should be an easier one. The White Sox have been bad against right-handed pitching all season with a .292 wOBA (4th-worst), 84 wRC+ (3rd-worst), and 6.4% walk rate (2nd-worst). That low walk rate is key because Bibee sometimes struggles with command. Over the past week, the White Sox vs righties numbers are pretty terrible: .269 wOBA, 68 wRC+, .185 BA, 4.7% walk rate. Bibee should do his thing again here and go under 2.5 earned runs. 

Nico Hoerner, Chicago Cubs – OVER 1.5 Total Bases

Like many of the Chicago Cubs hitters right now, Nico Hoerner is swinging a hot bat. He has a .407 batting average over the past seven games and boasts a .340 BA and .971 OPS since the All-Star break. He’s also been over 1.5 total bases in four straight games and in seven of the past 10 contests. Look for Hoerner and the Cubs offense to keep it going tonight against Miles Mikolas. The St. Louis Cardinals right-hander just gave up six runs on 11 hits to Chicago last start and has now allowed 4+ runs in six of his last nine starts. Mikolas has a 4.95 ERA at home this season and could run into trouble here. Meanwhile, Hoerner is hitting .282 vs righties this year and has strong BvP numbers vs Mikolas: 9-for-22 (.409 BA). In this same head-to-head matchup less than a week ago, he went 3-for-4.
