Grab a cup of coffee and let’s dive into my MLB GPP picks for the main slate on DraftKings and Fanduel.

I’m going to highlight plays that have tournament winning upside. Let’s get into it.
Jack Flaherty- At $9,400 on DraftKings and $9,800 on FanDuel, Flaherty is priced up for a matchup against Milwaukee. Flaherty has been solid in 2020 posting a K/9 of 9.23 and an xFIP of 3.59. Milwaukee has struggled all season posting a wRC+ of 87, which is towards the bottom of the league. I expect Flaherty to dominate in this spot and comes at a discount compared to other studs on the slate.
Deivi Garcia- At $6,800 on DraftKings and $8,900 on FanDuel, Garcia is at varying price points for a matchup against Toronto. This is more of a DraftKings play than a FanDuel play for me. Garcia has gotten off to a strong start in his MLB career posting a K/9 of 9.17 and an xFIP of 4.21. The Blue Jays have been good offensively but, they do have guys in their lineup that will strikeout above the average rate. I look for Garcia to have a quality start and smash value on today’s slate.
Yu Darvish- At $11,300 on DraftKings and $11,200 on FanDuel, Darvish is priced up for a matchup against Cleveland. Darvish has dominated all season posting a K/9 of 11.57 and an xFIP of 2.62. Cleveland has been pedestrian on offense all season posting a wRC+ of 84. I expect Darvish to have a double-digit strikeout game and he will be a cornerstone of my pitching exposure on today’s slate.

Oakland Athletics- The A’s have a matchup against Antonio Senzatela with an implied run total of 6.38. Not much to say besides Senzatela is a pitch to contact pitcher against a powerful A’s lineup at Coors Field. I’m anticipating Oakland putting up multiple crooked numbers in this spot and I don’t think Senzatela lasts 4 innings in this spot. Focus on Matt Olson, Tommy LaStella, Ramon Laureano, and Marcus Semien.
Los Angeles Angels- The Angels have a matchup against Madison Bumgarner with an implied run total of 5.41. Bumgarner has been atrocious posting a K/9 of 5.81 and an xFIP of 7.17. The Angels have been in the top third in the league offensively posting a wRC+ of 106 and an ISO of .177. Bumgarner has struggled all season and I look for that to continue on today’s slate. Focus on Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon, Shohei Ohtani, and Albert Pujols.
New York Mets- The Mets have a date with Jake Arrieta with an implied run total of 4.87. Arrieta has struggled in 2020 posting a K/9 of 6.46 nd an xFIP 4.42. The Mets have been elite offensively posting a wRC+ of 123 and an ISO of .185. I expect the Mets to score early and often in this spot. Focus on Jeff McNeil, Michael Conforto, Pete Alonso, and Dominic Smith.
