MLB DFS Stacks, Pitching, & Hitting Targets | DraftKings & FanDuel MLB Picks 8/6

MLB DFS Strategy Study Hub Session 8/6

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 14-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.

**I didn’t use the “Less than 10% Owned” filter because no players would’ve qualified.**

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 Last 7 Days Hot Hitters

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 Atlanta Braves (Austin Riley, Dansby Swanson, and Joc Pederson), Colorado Rockies (Trevor Story, Elias Diaz, and Sam Hilliard), and San Francisco Giants (Mike Yastrzemski, Kris Bryant, and Wilmer Flores) are the only teams with three players on the hot list.

The Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Guardians, Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, and Philadelphia Phillies have two players on the seven day hot hitters club list.

This is a 14 game slate and as you’ll see in the section below over half of today’s teams are projected for 4.5+ runs. In my opinion as always, I see no reason to try and stack every team on the slate. I like to take a stand on some teams. If I’m right I’ll have a good to awesome night. If I’m wrong, well, there’s always tomorrow. A quick glance at our MLB DFS Study Hubs shows the DraftKing side ranking Arizona and Houston as the 2nd and 3rd best stacks on the slate. The FanDuel side shows the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics in the 2nd and 3rd spots.

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. Milwaukee (22%) is the only city out of the 14 on the slate with a double digit chance of rain. No worries there though because the American Family Field roof is retractable.

*The Athletics with Chris Bassitt (-274), The Padres with Ryan Weathers (-211), and the Dodgers with David Price (-194) are the three biggest favorites on the slate. The Astros with Zack Greinke (-184), The Braves with Kyle Muller (-180), and the Reds with Wade Miley (-175) are all decent favorites.

*The Yankees, Rays, Reds, Guardians, Braves, Astros, Rockies, Athletics, Padres, and Dodgers are all projected for 5+ runs.

*The Mets, Phillies, Mariners, Blue Jays, and Cardinals  are all projected for 5 runs if you round up their implied total.

*The Yankees, Blue Jays, Angels, Phillies, and Braves are the only teams on winning streaks of 3+ games on the slate.

*The Guardians, Rangers, Nationals, and Cardinals are the only  teams on the slate with a losing streak of 3+ games.
