These are the early morning Top 5 MLB DFS Picks for DraftKings and Fanduel. Be sure to dive into the MLB DFS Rankings, Cash Picks, and Player Pool or the GPP Picks and Player Pool afterward. And of course, the Rise or Fall MLB DFS Projections, ownerships, player ratings, and data are a good place to start for daily fantasy sports.
Bundy is the highest rated pitcher in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He has a 24.3% strikeout rate and an 7.5% base on balls rate. On such a small slate he will garner a lot of ownership.
The Angels are the highest rated stack in our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. The Hub is projecting them to be the 2nd highest owned stack on a slate with only 4 games on the slate. The Angels have the second highest implied total out of the four teams playing. It’ll be a chalky slate with it being small, get creative with how you stack them up.
Pivetta is the 2nd rated pitcher in our MLB DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s a pivot off of the expected chalk in Dylan Bundy. The Team Rise or Fall Study Hub projects him for 33% ownership. Pivetta’s 24.8% strikeout rate is second on the slate. The Marlins strikeout 8th most in MLB.
The Cubs have an implied run total of 3.52 runs today. That is the lowest on the slate, yet, they rank as the top stack in the MLB DFS Study Hub. On such a small slate you have to get a bit different in order to differentiate your lineup to get to the top of tournaments. The Cubs will face off against Padre’s starter Ryan Weathers who has not gone longer than 5 innings in any game this season.
