Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Picks

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

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Walker Buehler, LAD @ SF, O/U 7

Buehler is the top rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He comes into today’s action with a 28.6% strikeout rate and a 6% base on balls rate. The Giants are tied with the San Diego Padres for the best record in MLB. Both teams are a half game ahead of the Boston Red Sox, and a full game ahead of the Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. It won’t necessarily be easy for Buehler but he should do well tonight.

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

My stack picks today are simple: I’m attacking losers. No, I’m not hopping on social media and bullying people. That’s tomorrow. Today, I’m targeting teams that are in the midst of three or more game losing streaks.

The Blue Jays are losers of three straight games and I’m banking on that continuing tonight. On the flipside the Rays have won eight games in a row so it’s the best of both worlds. As far as the stack I like grabbing five Tampa players against Robbie Ray. He’s a decent pitcher but sometimes a team is playing so well that it doesn’t matter who’s on the hill.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Walker Buehler, LAD @ SF, O/U 7

Buehler is the top rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s the stud of the day and other than his price, I don’t see any reason to look elsewhere. Buehler carries a 10.5k salary on FD and an 11k salary on DraftKings. It doesn’t concern me too much because there’s always good value on a baseball slate.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – San Diego Padres, SD vs SEA O/U 7.5

The Padres have won seven consecutive games while the Mariners have dropped four straight. It’s the best of both worlds again. San Diego is averaging 7.3 runs during their win streak. They’ve scored less than five runs two out of the seven games. I’m not expecting them to cross home plate 16 times like they did last night, but a 9-2 victory is definitely in the cards.

MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – Boston Red Sox, BOS @ PHI, O/U 9

Eagsixcards likes the Boston Red Sox today. Surprise, surprise. Sticking with the theme of picking on teams that are down bad right now leads me to the BoSox. Again.

Boston has won three straight games while Philadelphia has lost three straight. The Red Sox are averaging 5.5 runs per game in their last 10 games, and 8.7 runs per game in their last three games. I’m looking for their bats to stay hot as they beat up on the average (but currently struggling) Phillies.
