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

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Trevor Bauer, LAD @ ARI, O/U 9.5

Bauer is the 3rd highest rated pitcher in today’s Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He and the Dodgers take on the worst team in MLB, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Losers of 14 straight games, the D-backs have scored five or more runs six times during the losing streak. They’ve scored three or fewer runs seven times. I’m looking for Bauer to add to their misery tonight.

DraftKings MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – Cleveland Indians, CLE @ PIT, O/U 9

Cleveland is ranked as the 2nd best offense in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. We’re projecting them to be the 4th highest owned team on the DK slate. Cleveland is on a four-game win streak, and they’ve averaged seven runs per game over that stretch. I’m looking for them to stay hot and put it on the Pirates.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Pitcher) – Alex Cobb, LAA vs DET, O/U 9

Cobb is the 3rd highest rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. This is a play against the Tigers as much as it is for Cobb. Detroit leads the league in strikeout rate so Cobb’s 15.6% strikeout rate should receive a boost tonight. Alex doesn’t walk many batters (6.7%) so I’m looking for a 4-5 strikeout performance with minimal damage from the Tigers offense.

FanDuel MLB DFS Picks (Stack) – New York Yankees, NYY vs OAK O/U 9.5

Our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel ranks the Yanks as the top offense on the slate today. We’re projecting them to be the 5th highest owned stack on the slate. New York has the potential to score 6+ runs every night, but it seems like they score two or three runs when I think they’ll score a lot. Oakland comes to town riding a six-game win streak, three games better than the Yankees streak. I don’t know who wins the game but I think there will be a lot of scoring.

MLB DFS Picks Top Stack -Kansas City Royals, KC vs BOS, O/U 

No implied run total has been set for this game yet, but I’m rolling with the Royals as my top stack today. KC rates as the 4th best offense on DraftKings, and the 3rd best offense on FanDuel. We’re projecting them to be the 5th highest owned stack on DK and the 9th highest owned stack on FD. High potential and low ownership ropes me in EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It doesn’t always win me a tournament but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
