Pick #9: Charlie Blackmon o1.5 Hits, Runs, & RBIs (-145 DraftKings)
Charlie Blackmon's hot streak, combined with Jordan Lyles' shaky pitching, makes him a prime candidate to go over 1.5 Hits, Runs, & RBIs in the upcoming MLB game against Kansas City.
As baseball fans gear up for the showdown between the Colorado Rockies and the Kansas City Royals, all eyes are on the Rockies' Charlie Blackmon, who is crushing it on the field and showing no signs of cooling off. With the line set at 1.5 for his Hits, Runs, & RBIs, I'm backing the over for Blackmon, and here's why.
Not only is Blackmon on fire, but he's also set to face Kansas City's Jordan Lyles, who's been having a bit of a rough season. Lyles has given up multiple homers in seven of his 11 starts this season, racking up a brutal 16 long balls over 61.2 innings. This has led to a ghastly 7.30 ERA that should have Rockies fans licking their chops. With Blackmon's current form, he's in prime position to capitalize on Lyles' struggles and rack up hits.
Blackmon's .866 OPS and .291 average against right-handed pitchers this season are further evidence of his potential to excel in this matchup. With Lyles being a right-handed pitcher, Blackmon's strong stats against RHPs will be crucial in helping him secure hits and possibly even run up the score.
In addition to his impressive performance against right-handed pitchers, Blackmon has shown a knack for getting on base and making things happen. He's scored a run in 10 of his last 15 games, showing that he's not only a hit machine but also a valuable asset for the Rockies when it comes to putting runs on the board.
Given all these factors, it's easy to see why I'm bullish on Blackmon going over 1.5 Hits, Runs, & RBIs in the upcoming game against the Royals. With his recent hot streak, strong stats against right-handed pitchers, and the opportunity to capitalize on Lyles' struggles, Blackmon is primed for a big performance that could make all the difference in this MLB showdown.
So, for those of you looking to spice up your MLB game-watching experience with a little wager, consider backing Charlie Blackmon to go over 1.5 Hits, Runs, & RBIs against Kansas City. It's not a guarantee, but with his current form and the favorable matchup, it's a solid bet that could pay off big time.
