Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Picks

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

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Cody Poteet, MIA vs NYM, O/U 7

Poteet is the second highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. The 26 year old righthander has a salary of 5.1K today. We’re projecting him for 12 fantasy points but his salary allows you to load up on studs at every other spot.

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Toronto Blue Jays, TOR @ TAM, O/U 9

The Blue Jays rank as our third best stack and sixth highest owned stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. I say this almost every slate and that’s because it’s true: I love a team with high upside that the rest of the field is sleeping on. Tampa has been rolling (Nine straight wins) while the Jays have been STRUGGLING (Four straight losses) so most folks will lean Rays today. I’m not saying Toronto wins but they’re going to go out swinging.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Freddy Peralta, MIL @ CIN, O/U 8

Peralta is the highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He takes on a Reds team that’s four games below .500 while being extremely hot or cold at the plate. I’m banking on today being a cold day for the Cincy bats.

Peralta strikes out 31% of the batters he faces and gives up walks to 11% of hitters. He should do well today unless he’s handing out free passes and the Reds have some timely hitting.

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

Cleveland is the third highest rated offense while being projected to be the sixth highest owned offense in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. Cleveland has scored six or more runs just twice in their last 12 outings. I’m looking for that to change today.

MLB DFS Picks Top Stack – New York Yankees, NYY vs CWS, O/U 9

The Yankees rank as the top stack in our MLB DFS Study Hubs for DraftKings and FanDuel. We’re projecting them to be the fifth highest owned stack on both sites. Insert heart eyes emoji. The Yanks have won five straight games, but are only averaging four runs per game over that stretch. I’m expecting today to be a breakout day for the New York offense.
