Daily Fantasy - Start Max Scherzer & Scott Kazmir

No doubt Max Scherzer will cost you a fortune in DFS, no matter what site you play on, but a strikeout pitcher vs the Houston Astros is a recipe for success.  The Detroit Tigers are 4-2 in Scherzer's starts, and 3-0 at Comerica Park, which is where today's game takes place.  In his 3 starts at home, Scherzer has a 1.29 ERA over 21 innings pitched and 26 strikeouts to just 4 walks.  The Kansas City Royals, Los Angels Angels and Chicago White Sox managed 14 hits, leading to a .192 avg and scored just 3 runs.  

If you need to find a second pitcher to go with Scherzer, or don't want to spend the cash, make sure you get Scott Kazmir vs the Seattle Mariners!  The Oakland Athletics are 6-0 in Kazmir's starts, and he already shut out the Mariners over 6 innings, punching out 9 batters on April 13th.  Robinson Cano is the Mariners best hitter, and over 36 ABs, Cano is hitting just .222 with 12 strikeouts vs Kazmir.  The Athletics will be home where Kazmir has made 2 starts, and allowed just 9 hits over 15.1 innings pitched.
