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 10-game slate on DK, FD, and SuperDraft. The slate begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 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).
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 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.
The Milwaukee Brewers (Omar Navarez, Avisail Garcia, and Luis Urias) are the only team with three players on the hot list above. Our MLB DFS Study Hubs rank the Brewers as the 8th best stack and 8th highest owned stack on Draftkings, and the 3rd best stack and 5th highest owned stack on FanDuel. That seems like an excellent spot for a sneaky stack.
The Boston Red Sox (Rafael Devers and Enrique Hernandez) and the Chicago White Sox (Adam Engel and Leury Garcia) both have two players on the seven day hot hitters club list. The Boston stack is 14th and 17th in stack rank and ownership rank on DraftKings while the White Sox stack comes in at 16th and 15th. Our Study Hub is telling you we’re not too high on the stack overall but maybe you grab a few pieces from those teams to go with your main stacks.
I’ve said a lot of times that I’m a huge fan of “hot players” or you could say I suffer from recency bias when it comes to MLB DFS. The All-Star break throws us a curve and breaks the players’ rhythm so my personal strategy is to play light until the teams have been back for a week. In my opinion it allows players to get back in the groove, and it allows us to identify those players.
Here are a few things that catch my eye for today’s slate:
*The San Diego @ Washington, New York Mets @ Pittsburgh, and Boston @ New York Yankees games all currently have weather issues. The game in Washington leads the way with a 48% chance of precipitation. I’m not saying these games will be postponed but it’s something to monitor throughout the day.
*The Los Angeles Dodgers (-246) are the only huge favorite on the slate. The next biggest favorite on the slate is the Mets (-164).
*The Padres, Mets, Royals, and Dodgers are all projected for 5+ runs.
*The Nationals, Astros, White Sox, Rockies, and Angels are all projected for 5 runs if you round up their implied total.
*The Dodgers and Giants are the only teams on the slate with winning streaks of 3+ games.
*The Baltimore and Washington are the only teams on the slate with losing streaks of 3+ games.
