Chicago Cubs Monthly Review

Joey Ricotta | May 3rd, 2019

Technically, the MLB season started in March, but I thought it would be a good idea to do a review at the end of April. On March 28, the Chicago Cubs won their opening day game in Texas against the Rangers. Then proceeded to lose their next six games. During those six games, the pitching staff allowed 55 runs. That equals an opposing run per game average of over 9. Brutal. God awful. All hell was about to break loose in Chicago. Continue reading

MLB DFS: Locks and Stacks for 4/30/19

Joey Ricotta | April 30th, 2019

A huge slate of games tonight, 15 to be exact. There are some games that look to be in trouble weather-wise, so 15 games barring postponements. There will be a ton of variance and spread out ownership. This is what makes DFS fun. Along with the making money part. That’s kind of the best part. Without further ado let’s get right into some players I will be targeting in hopes of cashing in. Continue reading

Chicago Bears 2019 Draft Review

Joey Ricotta | April 30th, 2019

Not having a pick until the third round of the draft can change the way a fan views that particular draft. That’s been the case for most Bears fans as they were expecting to wait until pick number 87 before they made their first selection. Instead, fans only had to wait until pick 73 because the Bears decided to trade up to get their guy. Nothing new for GM Ryan Pace, but how should we value this year’s picks? Continue reading

MLB DFS: Spend Up, Value, and Stacks for 4/29/19

Joey Ricotta | April 29th, 2019

Sometimes we need to look at DFS like we are putting together a puzzle. The top-notch players are usually the highest priced ones. The lower priced guys can be serviceable, given the right matchup. My goal with the article today is to give you some pieces, both high and low, to give you the best chance of putting together the perfect puzzle. Take a ride with me as I lay out some spend up options, value and BvP plays, and stacks. Continue reading

MLB DFS – Locks, Value, and Stacks for 4/23/19

Joey Ricotta | April 23rd, 2019


Welcome in. Hopefully you were able to cash last night with some of the plays provided in yesterday’s article. Stephen Piscotty and Jonathan Lucroy came up huge for me and I was able to turn in a decent profit, cashing in 84% of cash games last night. Hopefully we can strike gold again. Let’s take a look at some players to target for tonight’s 13-game slate.

MLB DFS – Locks, Value, and Stacks for 4/22/19

Joey Ricotta | April 22nd, 2019

Mondays after a holiday weekend can be brutal. If you had as much fun as I did, I probably don’t have to tell you that. Making money can make anyone feel slightly better. Let’s dive into the options for today with some lineup locks, value, and stacks. Continue reading

MLB DFS: Locks and Stacks 4/16/19

Joey Ricotta| April 16th, 2019

Well, hope you all had a great Jackie Robinson Day and were able to make some money last night. I hope you played Christian Yelich. I also hope you didn’t play either of the pitchers I mentioned. That might be the last time I roster Kikuchi and who knows about Cahill. Either way, the best part about MLB DFS is we get to bounce-back the next day. So, that’s exactly what we’ll do. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for tonight’s huge 13-game slate. Continue reading
