MLB DFS – World Series Game Six: Showdown Picks

Joey Ricotta | October 29th, 2019 

Heading back to Houston for Game Six of the World Series, the road team has won every game thus far. It’s the first time the road team has won every game through five games of the World Series since 1996. The Washington Nationals look to make it six straight games and force an always exciting, must-see, winner take all, Game Seven. But in order to do so, they’ll need to get a great outing from Stephen Strasburg and be able to put a dent into Justin Verlander. Continue reading

MLB DFS – NLCS Game Three: Showdown Slate

Joey Ricotta     | October 14th, 2019

Well, the first two games of the series were very much in favor of the Washington Nationals, as they stymied the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense and held them to only one run and four hits in the first two games combined. Things won’t get any easier for the Redbirds tonight. They’ll have the difficult task of attempting to barrel up Stephen Strasburg. The one thing going for them that they didn’t have in the first two games is Jack Flaherty. Whenever you can send your ace to the mound, you have to feel like you have a shot. Continue reading

MLB DFS – ALDS Game Four: Showdown Slate

Joey Ricotta | October 8th, 2019 

The Tampa Bay Rays were able to stave off elimination yesterday by knocking the baseball all around the yard and defeating the Astros 10-3. But today will be even more challenging as they get the daunting task of trying to hit the timeless ace, Justin Verlander. Will they be able to do it? Who knows. What I do know is I have some top-notch options for you to use in your DFS lineups tonight. At least I hope they are top-notch.

Locks, Stacks, and Barrels: MLB DFS for September 20th, 2019

John Lepore | September 20th, 2019

Aside from one afternoon game today, there is a full 14-game slate tonight. With so many choices for our lineups, the task of picking the right players can seem daunting. Have no fear. Baseball DFS is every day and sticking to what your research tells you will work out over the long haul. Last week my picks didn’t turn out exactly how I would’ve liked. We are back at it again though to hopefully win a little cash. Let’s get to it.

MLB DFS: Arms, Bats, and Stacks for September 17th, 2019

Joey Ricotta | September 17th, 2019

With the MLB season winding down, we won’t have many more opportunities to take advantage and make some money playing DFS. We need to capitalize on the remaining opportunities. That brings us to tonight’s slate of 14 games, starting a little later than normal at 7:05 ET. On the docket, we have a game at Coors Field which we always have to prioritize one way or the other, as well as some pitchers in good spots. To save you time and research, I went ahead and put some work in for you. The daily grind keeps rolling and we aren’t slowing down for anything or anyone. It’s time to get right back to it. Here are some of my favorite DFS plays for tonight’s games. Continue reading

MLB DFS – Make That Money Monday, Targets and Stacks for 9/9/19

Joey Ricotta| September 9th, 2019 

There are two NFL games on tonight after the big opening Sunday yesterday. There was baseball on yesterday and a slate of games that not many paid attention to. Tonight, however, there are eight games on the main slate on DraftKings. The perfect sized slate following a crazy, yet enjoyable Sunday of football. Just enough games to be able to differentiate your lineups from your opponent’s. Also, not too many games which allow us to fully dive into each game. Let’s take a look at what we have on tap for tonight. Continue reading

Two-Start Pitchers: Week 23 and Streamer of the Week

Matt Bishop | September 9, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK

Mitch Keller, SP PIT 

(37% CBS, 4% ESPN, 9% Yahoo)

9/10: @ San Francisco Giants (69-74) 3rd in NL West

9/15: @ Chicago Cubs (76-66) 2nd in NL Central

I know this is cheap and a bit lazy being that I used Mitch Keller last week, but he was hit on the hand by a line drive in his outing on 9/03 and was forced to leave the game after only 1,2 innings and striking out 3 batters. This forced him to miss most of his first start and all of his second, but he is slotted back into the rotation and on track for Tuesday 9/10 and Sunday 9/15, so why not?

Firmly solidified as the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect and ranked as the 25th best prospect in baseball, Mitch Keller carries an electric skill set and an array of plus offerings. But since his callup on 5/27, the results have been lack-luster, pitching to a butt clenching 8.62 ERA 1.98 WHIP. While his 11.86 K/9 is encouraging, Keller has never really been known for his control, which is evident from his 3.45 BB/9. This is slightly higher than his 2.83 BB/9 minor league career mark, but not terrible for his first exposure to major league hitters. Continue reading
