There are many things that you can do with our MLB DFS study hub. It’s loaded with information and has many different functions that you can mess around with. We have these study for MLB DFS, NBA DFS, NFL DFS, NASCAR DFS, NHL DFS, PGA DFS, and MMA DFS. Today, I wanted to break down different ways to use the Study Hub with examples of filters used. These are up to the user for what metrics and at what levels they’d like to use for each category. The world is your oyster!
I’ll be breaking down the main slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. It’s a six-game slate that begins at 7:15 PM EST/4:15 PM PST on all sites.
These are the last 14-days of team-by-team splits vs. starting pitcher-handedness. Basically, you can get a quick glimpse of which teams are HOT vs. handedness of pitcher based on splits alone.
This is a list of hitters with a .400 wOBA / .300 ISO split with at least 20 Plate Appearances over the last 30-days of baseball.
This list is compiled by sorting in the MLB DFS Study Hub. The DraftKings Rating category was filtered to 75 and above. The projections category was filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings Value category was filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings ownership % category was filtered by players less than 10% owned (filtered as 0.1 to get this result).
This list is compiled by sorting in the MLB DFS Study Hub. The FanDuel Rating category was filtered to 75 and above. The projections category was filtered by “Above Average”. The FanDuel Value category was filtered by “Above Average”. The FanDuel ownership % category was filtered by players less than 10% owned (filtered as 0.1 to get this result).
**NOTE** No players were projected for less than 10% ownership for FanDuel. All of the other parameters were met.
These targets were created by sorting the DraftKings Rating and FanDuel Rating to 75 or higher. The DraftKings projections and FanDuel projections were filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings value and FanDuel value were sorted by “Above Average”. The FanDuel ownership and DraftKings ownership were not filtered for this shortlist.
Now that the hard part has been cleared it’s time to dig a little deeper as we start building our stacks. I like to look at players that are playing really well the last seven days. I’m of the opinion that baseball players are streaky so I look at the most recent sample.
These are the top 10 hottest hitters using the same parameters as the Hot Hitters Club over a seven day span. The only difference is I use nine plate appearances instead of 20 plate appearances.
Arizona: Eduardo Escobar, Josh Reddick, and Pavin Smith
Colorado: Brendan Rodgers and Elias Diaz
Los Angeles Angels: Shohei Ohtani and Max Stassi
Los Angeles Dodgers: Max Muncy, Justin Turner, and A.J. Pollock
Milwaukee: Jace Peterson and Willy Adames
Milwaukee is the top rated stack on FanDuel and the New York Yankees are the top rated stack on DraftKings in the Team Rise or Fall MLB DFS Study Hubs. The Dodgers rate as the second best stack on both sites, and we’re projecting them to be the highest owned stack on both DK and FD.
I like targeting teams that have three or more players in the “Hot over the last seven days” category. Today that would steer me towards the Brewers and the Diamondbacks. I mentioned that our MLB DFS Study Hub likes Milwaukee but it’s the opposite for Arizona. The Diamondbacks rank 9th on DK and 12th (Out of 12) on FanDuel. Arizona has been awful this year but on a six-game slate I can see myself throwing a few of their stacks in the mix.
Here are a few things that catch my eye for today’s slate:
*The St. Louis Cardinals at the Chicago Cubs matchup does have potential for rain. There’s currently a 55% chance of precipitation. We’ve been experiencing some wild weather all across the United States. I have no idea what will happen with this game but keep an eye on this situation as we get closer to lock.
*The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers are the only teams Las Vegas is projecting for 5+ runs. This includes me rounding up. There are currently four teams (Reds, Cardinals, Diamondbacks, and Rockies) projected for less than four runs, BUT that number becomes two teams (DIamondbacks and Rockies) if I round up.
*Walker Buehler and the Dodgers are the biggest favorites on the slate (-321), followed by Freddy Peralta and the Brewers (-209), and then Joe Musgrove and the Padres (-181).
We try to help the community the best that we can and do so at as low of a price as we can. We hope you join the family but there is no pressure here!
