Well, folks. Here it is. The final game of the MLB season. The last chance to play MLB DFS for five months. Of course, we still have plenty of DFS coverage for the NHL and NFL, but let’s take a look at some values and see if we can finish the 2019 MLB season on a winning note.
The Washington Nationals took Game One of the World Series from the Houston Astros last night 5-4. Tonight we get another great pitching matchup as Justin Verlander and Stephen Strasburg will take the bump. Let’s check out our options for the Showdown.
The Fall Classic is finally upon us. The Houston Astros and Washington Nationals will face off in this year’s World Series. This is the second time in three years for the Astros and the first-ever appearance by the Washington Nationals. The Astros finished off the Yankees in six games in the ALCS and the Nationals swept their way past the Cardinals in the NLCS.
Pitching has mostly had the upper hand in the Astros/ Yankees Championship Series so naturally, because of the distinct edge in their starters, we have to side with the stronger pitching team, the Houston Astros. Justin Verlander will be going on regular rest. The Yankees send left-handed starter James Paxton to the bump who has strikeout upside, but the Astros hit lefties very well. Let’s quickly go over a few players to help build your showdown lineups. It’s Game Five of the ALCS and it’s about time to go for a rip Around the Horn!
Last night didn’t exactly go the way I thought it would. But that’s what makes baseball so great, right? We just never know what’s going to happen. The St. Louis Cardinals are on the verge of elimination and the Washington Nationals are one game away from childhood dreams. Before that, the New York Yankees will host the Houston Astros for what will be Game Three of the ALCS. The series is currently tied at one game apiece and this sets up to be a critical swing game. As the title reads, these picks are more for GPPs/tournaments. For cash games, you may want to use a different strategy and take a safer approach. Without further ado, let’s get to the picks.
Today we have both Championship Series going. The Washington Nationals will play Game Two in St. Louis today after shutting down the Cardinals last night. The Houston Astros will host the New York Yankees as their series gets started. Let’s see who should get the nod in your MLB DFS lineups today.
