MLB DFS Stacks, Pitching, & Hitting Targets | DraftKings & FanDuel MLB Picks 8/5

MLB DFS Strategy Study Hub Session 8/5

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 on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. The slate begins at 7:05 PM EST/4:05 PM PST on all sites.

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.

The wOBA/ISO Hot Hitters Club

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.

FanDuel Targets for MLB DFS

**There are less FanDuel Targets because of the ownership factor. As you can see, the majority of the players are owned more than 10%.**

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.

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.

MLB DFS Hot Hitters Club Last 7 Days

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 Cincinnati Reds (Jesse Winker, Joey Votto, and Kyle Farmer), Houston Astros (Jose Altuve, Kyle Tucker, and Martin Maldonado), and Toronto Blue Jays (George Springer, Bo Bichette, and Santiago Espinal) are the only teams with three players on the hot list.

The Minnesota Twins have two players on the seven day hot hitters club list.

We’re looking at a six-game slate so things get a little condensed when it comes to our lineups. We can see that the Astros and Reds both have multiple players in the DraftKings targets section and the last 7 days Hot Hitters club. Those look like some good spots to dig deeper into via our MLB DFS Study Hubs. I’ll go ahead and spoil the surprise: Cincy (#2) and H-Town (#1) are the two top rated stacks on DraftKings. It’s a little different on FanDuel where Houston ranks 3rd overall and the Reds are 4th overall.

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. Don’t start celebrating yet because we’ve seen things change in the blink of an eye. But still so far, so good.

*The Houston Astros with Framber Valdez (-230), Cincinnati Reds with Sonny Gray (-225), New York Yankees with Nestor Cortes (-198), Chicago White Sox with Dallas Keuchel (-188) and Toronto Blue Jays with Ross Stripling (-178) are all huge to decent favorites. There’s only six games today and five of them are heavily weighted to the favorites. Seems like a contrarian type of day. I’m not advising that you stack all of the underdogs. What I’m saying is there’s only six games and we’re going to have to get creative if we want to take down a tournament. The best way to do that is by attacking some of the “favorites.”

*The Blue Jays, Yankees, Reds, Astros, and White Sox are all projected for 5+ runs.

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

*There are no teams on winning streaks of 3+ games on the slate.

*There are no teams on the slate with a losing streak of 3+ games.
