MLB DFS has a 10-game main slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. The main slate begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 PM PST.
These are the early morning Top 5 MLB DFS Picks for DraftKings and Fanduel. Be sure to dive into the MLB DFS Rankings, Cash Picks, and Player Pool or the GPP Picks and Player Pool afterward. And of course, the Rise or Fall MLB DFS Projections, ownerships, player ratings, and data are a good place to start for daily fantasy sports.
Bauer ranks as the top rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. Vegas hasn’t set a line on the game at the time of publication. If I had to guess I’d say 7.5 runs will be the total as the Marlins have a good pitching staff, and the Dodgers technically have a good pitching staff.
I’m looking for Trevor and the Dodgers to pick up a win in a low scoring affair tonight.
The Phillies are the top ranked stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. We’re projecting them to be the 5th highest owned stack, which if you know me, means I love the Phillies stack today.
There are a few more reasons to like Philadelphia today: Vegas put a 9.5 implied total on the game, Philly is the road team, and Philadelphia is averaging about five runs per game over their last eight games.
Rodon is the highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He comes into tonight’s action with a 20% strikeout rate and a nearly 11% base on ball rate. I’d prefer the SO rate to be higher and the BB rate to be lower, but what are we gonna do?
The White Sox have the highest run differential in the league so they should be able to provide enough runs to cover Rodon allowing a couple of Royals to score.
I had the Nationals as one of my top stacks yesterday and with 17 runs, man did they come through. I’m not chasing with this selection today. I really like them to take it to the Arizona pitching staff again today. Will it be 17 runs worth of “taking it to?” No, probably not. Will they hang some crooked numbers? Yes, I believe they will.
MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Houston Astros, HOU vs TEX, O/U 8.5
The Astros come in as the second best stack on both DraftKings and FanDuel in our MLB DFS Study Hubs. They’ve won four straight games. Houston is averaging six runs per game over their last 10 games, and seven runs per game over the four-game win streak. Load up the Houston bats and skyrocket to the top of the leaderboards!
The MLB DFS Core Builds are also referred to as our MLB DFS Building Blocks. Each staff member the core players they would build their Cash or GPP lineup around for both DraftKings and FanDuel. These MLB DFS Picks are basically the Building Blocks of their MLB DFS Lineups.
The MLB Strategy Notebook gives our staff a place to write notes specific to each slate for members to read regarding strategy for each slate. They will mention which stacks they are targeting, which players make more sense for GPP formats over Cash formats and other lineup building tidbits!
The MLB DFS Picks and Pools for GPP’s is crucial for Single Entry players. This list of priority picks are players with slate-winning upside each night. They aren’t just the top projected players, they are picks that take into consideration the Rise or Fall ownership projection, tournament leverage, and daily fantasy baseball roster construction.
The MLB Stacks will display the top stacks of the day using the data from the MLB Study Hub! This will display what teams project the best, which will be higher owned, and a player-by-player breakdown to show which players could be going overlooked.
