The Milwaukee Brewers are coming off a two-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs, and they are set up for success once again in Wednesday night’s game. Milwaukee’s top hitters will go up against starter Jake Arrieta, who has a 6.34 ERA through 19 starts in his return to the organization. In his previous four starts, he threw just 11.1 innings and allowed 19 runs including 16 earned in that span. In his last start against the Brewers, Arrieta threw 1.2 innings and allowed six runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks.
Blue Jays vs. Angels, 9:38 p.m. ET
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. ($6,200)
Bo Bichette ($5,900)
George Springer ($5,600)
The Toronto Blue Jays have a very good matchup against Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Dylan Bundy. Bundy will enter with a 2-8 record with a 6.14 ERA over 20 appearances including 16 starts. Toronto is 7-2 in their last nine games, and the Blue Jays’ top hitters are worth the high DFS prices on Wednesday night.

Brandon Lowe ($5,000)
Nelson Cruz ($4,900)
Wander Franco ($4,800)
The Tampa Bay Rays have won five consecutive games heading into their game against the Boston Red Sox, and their offense has been huge during this recent stretch.

Boston starter Nathan Eovaldi allowed 12 earned runs in his previous two outings over 10 innings of work.
