MLB DFS Stacks, Pitching, & Hitting Targets | DraftKings & FanDuel MLB Picks 8/12

MLB DFS Strategy Study Hub Session 8/12

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 slate that begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 PM PST on DraftKings and 7:15PM EST/4:15 PM PST/ on FanDuel and SuperDraft.

Hot Hitting Teams

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.

MLB DFS LINEUP BUILDING BLOCKS

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.

Hot Hitters Club MLB DFS

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 Colorado Rockies are all over this list. They have a tough assignment against the Giants tonight but definitely worth noting where they stand on both hot hitters lists.

This isn’t advice or a suggestion but simply a look into how I handle the smaller slates. I go in on a few teams. We have eight teams to choose from tonight so I’d only want to stack three of them. Four if there was a tie for the third slot that couldn’t be broken. Overall I’m looking to hone in on a few teams and then try to stack them every way possible. Not stacking at the expense of building good lineups, but fishing for that combination of players that I believe can land me in the top spot.

The smaller slate size means ownership will be higher than normal and it should still be of no concern to us. We can make that up with a one off or by mixing in a 7th hitter here and there. We’ve laid out a good amount of information above. Now it’s your turn to open the MLB DFS Study Hub and dig a little more. The answers are in there if you look hard enough.

Here are a few things that catch my eye for today’s slate:

*At the time of writing there doesn’t appear to be any major weather concerns on the slate. There’s four games on the slate and we’ve got one game with the roof closed (San Diego-Arizona) and another game in sunny southern California (Toronto-Los Angeles Angels). The only real concern is if some storms kick up in the Midwest and cause problems for the Yankees-White Sox game.

*The Padres with Yu Darvish (-285) are the biggest favorite on the slate.

*The White Sox and Padres are projected for 5+ runs.

*The Blue Jays  are projected for 5 runs if you round up their implied total.

*The Giants are the only team on a winning streak of 3+ games on the slate.

*The Diamondbacks are the only  team on the slate with a losing streak of 3+ games.
