Today we are in the midst of the 2022 MLB Playoffs League Championship Series.
The Phillies are at the Padres tonight where they lead the series 1-0. Padres will definitely be looking to win and not get behind even further.
The Yankees are facing the Astros tonight to start the series. The Yankees just had a long day yesterday to close out their 5-game divisional series, so they could be tired.
Many teams may implement different strategies in order to stay ahead of pitching and take advantage of hitting matchups. Sometimes this makes predicting outcomes a bit challenging, so use your best judgment.
Additionally since there are only 2 games today, you should consider mixing and matching other picks since the MLB picks are so closely correlated to each other.
Jose Altuve (HOU) Over 6.5 Hitter Fantasy Score
Jose Altuve has a 38.7% on base percentage, 0.533 SLG, and 0.3 batting average. Jose Altuve also has a 6.8% swinging strike percentage and a 164 wRC+. Jameson Taillon will be pitching for The Yankees and has a 3.91 ERA, 20.7% strikeout rate, 3.79 xFIP and 1.32 HR/9.
I like this matchup against Taillon in general and expect Altuve to have a productive night.
Kyle Schwarber (PHI) Over 5.5 Hitter Fantasy Score
Kyle Schwarber has a 32.3% on base percentage, 0.504 SLG, and 0.218 batting average. Kyle Schwarber also has a 11.0% swinging strike percentage and a 128 wRC+. Blake Snell will be pitching for The Padres and has a 3.38 ERA, 32.0% strikeout rate, 3.21 xFIP and 0.77 HR/9.
Schwarber has been awesome this postseason, I don’t see any reason to start betting against him tonight.
