Damn, what a crazy start to the MLB season so far! We started the season just a week ago and already have seen some big game upsets kind of like the Tampa Bay Rays absolutely destroying the Atlanta Braves yesterday and then we get news that basically the entire Miami Marlins team now has tested positive for Covid-19…..Every single say seems to be an adventure into the unknown at this point, but hey, what the hell, at least we still have actual sports to watch and bet on!! So now let’s dive into today’s slate before something else blows up, hahahaha.
Today, we had another 10 game main slate scheduled, but as stated before, the Miami team is not playing now, which means the Orioles/Marlins game is off the schedule as well as the Yankees/Phillies game that was originally scheduled, so now we have a 9 game main slate and luckily there are no weather concerns for today!!
Ok, Let’s get right down into the dirty……I am going to keep this article short and sweet so that you have less reading to do and more time to work on lineups!
All of my picks are based on DraftKings Main Slate pricing and rosters, so if you play on Fanduel, Yahoo or elsewhere, be sure to check and see if the players are actually on the list to pick from and correlate their pricing to make them fit. You will also find a breakdown of the scoring for DraftKings below to help you understand where the points come from and this is especially helpful if you are new to MLB DFS.
The picks will consist of players per position that I believe (According to past data and matchup) have the best overall chance to score high. I will also be giving out my top teams to use as a stack and for those of you that do not know alot about MLB stacking, please read my article below:
