Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Picks

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

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Max Scherzer, WAS vs MIA, O/U 7

Max Scherzer is the highest rated pitcher, and projected to be the highest owned pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He comes into today with a 34.3% strike out rate and a 5.8% base on balls rate.

The Nationals have won three straight games while the Marlins are rocking a two-game losing streak. That’s the perfect recipe for Scherzer to shutdown the opposing bats.

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – New York Yankees, NYY vs DET, O/U 9

The Yankees grade out as the third best stack and the third most owned stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. They’re facing the worst team in baseball in the Tigers, and they’re playing in a hitter friendly stadium with the wind blowing out. Those are some solid factors to look for when trying to zero in on a stack.

While I like all of the Yankees’ sticks today, I’ll be trying to squeeze in the lefties batting near the end of the order. Odor (4th), Hicks (6th), Ford (7th), and Gardner (9th) are all drawing consideration from me.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Cristian Javier, HOU vs TAM, O/U 8

Javier is the second highest rated in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. We’re currently projecting him to be less than 10% owned although he has a greater than 50% chance of getting the win today.

Cristian strikes out 25.2% of the hitters he faces while giving up walks 8.4% of the time. The Rays have lost three straight games and I’m looking for Javier to push that to four.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Boston Red Sox, BOS @ TEX O/U 9

There have been a lot of Red Sox stacks in my articles lately. I can’t help it. They have a lot of signs that point to them being a good stack the last few days. There’s no bias on my part as I’m a St. Louis Cardinals fan and still holding a grudge from the 2004 World Series.

The Sox are the third rated stack while our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel is projecting them to be the fourth highest owned stack on the slate. They’re also playing in a hitter friendly stadium with the winds blowing out. Let’s stack Boston up one more day.

MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – New York Yankees, NYY vs DET, O/U 9

The Yankees are the top rated stack for FanDuel and the third rated stack for DraftKings in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hubs. Like I mentioned in the DraftKings section I like all of the Yankees stacks options but I do want to make sure to squeeze in some of the bottom of the order left-handed batters.

New York is projected to be in the top three in ownership on both sites. That means we can use them but we either have to A) Get creative within our Yankee stacks or B) Get creative/unique with the players we use with our Yankee stacks.
