Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Picks

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

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Tyler Glasnow, TB @  LAA, O/U 7.5

Tyler Glasnow is the third 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 32.4% strike out rate and a 9.5% base on balls rate.

The Marlins avoided the sweep by winning their last game against the Astros. The Rays will lean on Glasnow to build up a new winning streak.

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – San Francisco Giants, SFG @ COL, O/U 9.5

The Giants grade out as the second best stack and the most owned stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. They’re facing the Rockies in Coors where we know runs are scored in bunches.

While I like all of the Giants’ bats today, I’ll be trying to squeeze in the lefties of the order – Belt, Dickerson, and Tachman.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Kenta Maeda, MIN vs TEX, O/U 8.5

Maedais the highest rated in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. We’re currently projecting him to be the highest owned pitcher on FanDuel. Our model shows he has a greater than 60% chance of getting the win today.

Maeda strikes out 28.6% of the hitters he faces while giving up walks 7.4% of the time. Maeda will looks to lead the Twins to another victory as they have won three of their last four.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Cleveland Indians, CLE @ KCO/U 8.5

The Sox are the highest rated stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel, but the second highest owned stack on the slate. They’re also playing in a hitter friendly stadium with the winds blowing from left to right.

It looks like this may be a bullpen game for the Royals so I’m not shying away from either lefties or righties on the Indians.

MLB DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Los Angeles Dodgers, LAD @ CHC, O/U 8.5

The Dodgers are the second rated stack for FanDuel and fifth rated stack for DraftKings in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hubs. There is a chance of rain in Chicago so I would imagine it scares off some ownership of Dodger bats.

Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks has been shellacked in two of his last three outings, has me wanting to make sure I’m heavily exposed to the Dodgers especially with people wanting to fade the weather.
