Juan Soto has landed in San Diego and is pretty much doing what everyone expected him to. The next step is naturally to start hitting dingers (can’t let Brandon Drury steal his thunder). Soto is a unique talent who performs best against the best, and the Padres will need it against the Dodgers. Andrew Heaney is a worthy opponent which bumps Soto’s odds but he’s got great value tonight.
One of the most impressive hitters this year, Devers is a risk to go yard every night. Daniel Lynch certainly does not change that. Lynch is an ok starter but young and unproven. He doesn’t exactly pitch like he’s young but he gives up hits in streaks and Devers is very dangerous with runners on base. The Red Sox are still in the race for the playoffs and need some juice from their best player tonight.
Soto/Devers @ +2500 (Caesars)
