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 15-game slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, 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 Detroit Tigers (Robbie Grossman, Akil Baddoo, Eric Haase, and Zack Short) are the only team with three players on the hot list.
The Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Diego Padres, and St. Louis Cardinals have two players on the seven day hot hitters club list.
I like to take a look at a team with three or more players on the list as a possible stack for the day. Our MLB DFS Study Hub for DraftKings projects the Tigers as the #1 stack on the day and the highest owned. In our FanDuel Study Hub the Tigers come in at 2nd and 5th in those categories. The Tigers are a home favorite (-150) against the Baltimore Orioles. Looking at the numbers I would prefer to use Detroit stacks on FanDuel where they’ll be slightly less popular. This isn’t to say “Don’t stack Tigers on DK.” We want to use the best teams or the highly projected teams. It does mean we’ll have to work a little harder at getting unique with our mini stacks and one offs. We definitely don’t want to roll out a super chalky lineup and tie with a bunch of people for 150th place.
*At the time of writing there doesn’t appear to be any major weather concerns on the slate. Don’t start celebrating yet because we’ve seen things change in the blink of an eye. But still so far, so good.
*The Toronto Blue Jays with Ross Stripling (-214), the Chicago White Sox with Lance Lynn (-210), and the San Diego Padres with Ryan Weathers (-206) are the biggest favorites on the slate.
*The Blue Jays, Tigers, White Sox, Dodgers, and Padres are all projected for 5+ runs.
*The Cubs, Nationals, Phillies, and Rays are all projected for 5 runs if you round up their implied total.
*The Tigers, Brewers, and Reds are all on winning streaks of 3+ games.
*The Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates are the only teams on the slate with a losing streak of 3+ games.
