Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Picks

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

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Ian Anderson, ATL vs PIT, O/U 8.5

Anderson and the Braves are currently the third biggest favorite on the slate at -186. The Pirates are one of the worst teams in MLB, and they scored six runs yesterday (With the help of extra innings). Maybe Pittsburgh is starting a hot streak, but I believe they’ll be back to their low output ways tonight.

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Tampa Bay Rays, TAM @ TOR, O/U 9

The Rays rank as the third best stack in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. We’re projecting them to be the fifth highest owned stack so that’s a great combination as always. I do need to note that there are 15 games on the slate so ownership should be a smaller concern tonight. With that said, there’s also a Colorado game on the slate so that should attract the most ownership from the field.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Tyler Glasnow, TAM @ TOR, O/U 9

Glasnow will run you 11k on FanDuel which is better than the 11.2k salary he carries on DraftKings. Glasnow is 4-2 on the season with a 2.35 ERA. He takes on a decent Blue Jays team tonight but I think he can shut them down for the majority of the game.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Cleveland Indians, CLE vs MIN O/U 9

Cleveland ranks as the top stack and the fifth highest owned stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. They take on a 15-28 Twins team that’s 3-7 in their last 10, and have used a catcher as a pitcher in two blowouts this season. If Cleveland can jump on Minnesota early there’s no telling who’ll be pitching for the Twins late in the game.

MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Colorado Rockies, COL vs ARI, O/U 11.5

I’ve mentioned before how I don’t really like slates when the Rockies are at home. Coors Field does goofy things to baseball and DFS and it kind of ruins the fun for me.

The Rockies rate as the top stack on DraftKings and the second best stack on FanDuel in our MLB DFS Study Hubs. We’re projecting Colorado to be the highest owned stack on both sites.

Here are my options for Rockies stacks today: Fade Colorado from my five-man (DK) and four-man (FD) stacks. I can use them in my mini stacks or one offs, but I’ll let the field roster them heavily.

Or I can take a few swings with the Rockies as my main stack. If you’re using the Fantasy Cruncher “Team Stacks” feature you can set the percentage for how much exposure you want to a stack. Maybe use 10% Rockies stacks if you’re highest percentage for the other stacks in 17%. Does that make sense?

Lastly, I can go all in on Colorado. Vegas expects this to be a high scoring game and when are they ever wrong? (/sarcasm).

I’ll probably do option two. I’ll have some exposure to Colorado but they won’t be my highest owned stack. There are too many teams on the slate today and baseball is weird. Anything can happen, like a 5-3 game in Colorado and a 17-5 game in Cincinnati.
