Top 5 MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings and FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Brandon Woodruff, MIL vs STL, O/U 7.5

**Preface: Gerrit Cole is the top pitcher on both DraftKings and FanDuel, I want to show you some other options other than Cole. I won’t fault you if you go there **

Woodruff comes into today’s game against the Cardinals with a 2-1 record in 7 starts. He has a 32.5% K-rate this season to only a 7% BB-rate. He limits power and contact to both sides of the plate. The only concern I’d have is that the Brewers do not let him go too deep into games. The deepest he’s gone is 7 innings this season.

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Boston Red Sox, BOS vs OAK, O/U 9.5

Boston will face off against a relatively unknown James Kaprielian. He’s a right-handed pitcher who will be making his first career major league start. I couldn’t find a whole lot of info about his splits but I don’t think that will be too much of a concern as I don’t believe he’ll be going very deep into the game. I want guys who have been hot lately – Devers, Martinez, Verdugo, and Bogaerts.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Zach Wheeler, PHI @ WAS, O/U 8

**Preface: Gerrit Cole is the top pitcher on both DraftKings and FanDuel, I want to show you some other options other than Cole. I won’t fault you if you go there **

Wheeler comes into today’s game against the Nationals with a 3-2 record in 7 starts. He’ll carry a 26.8% K-rate to a 6.6% BB-rate today. He doesn’t seem to give up a whole lot but right-handed batters have done more damage this season than lefties. The Phillies aren’t afraid to let him go deep into games as apparent by his complete-game shutout in his last outing.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – New York Yankees, NYY @ TB, O/U 7.5

The Yankees will go against Rays’ Ryan Yarbrough. The Rays will use an opener to start the game then hand it off to Yarbrough. Yarbrough gives up more contact and power to right-handed batters and we know that the Yankees lineup is absolutely filled with power righties. I don’t care how you stack them, just get creative with your stacks.

MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Houston Astros, HOU vs LAA, O/U 8.5

Houston will face off against a struggling Andrew Heaney. If you’re a BvP truther there are a few guys that have had success against the Angels starter. Specifically, Altuve, Bregman, and Gurriel. Those three have had success against Heaney previously. I know past success doesn’t equate to present success but I always like to look at BvP to guide me as a tie-breaker in certain situations.
