We will take some of your labor out of Labor Day with our top selections for the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest at RealTime Fantasy Sports. As always, $135 in prizes are available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests are again very popular in 2016.
A pitcher many thought was washed up, Detroit’s Justin Verlander, has been phenomenal in the second half. In 10 starts since July 15, the 33-year-old has averaged 16 points per start. On Monday, the right-hander takes on the White Sox in their newly-named ballpark, whatever the heck it is called. Verlander is just the seventh-most expensive starter on the board, and at $7800, is a full $2000 cheaper than Max Scherzer. So, use the savings on offense.
You don’t need me to tell you that Mike Trout ($6800) is really good. However, if you are like me, you often cannot afford the Angels star. With the money saved above, buy shares of Trout today. The outfielder is 10 for his last 18, including three home runs, six RBI and even a steal. Ride the hot hand here as he opposes Oakland’s Raul Alcantara, who will be making his MLB debut.
