 Recommended first line of though: Vegas Odds:

What we are going to do for today is make sure everything is in conjuction with our vegas odds for the day. This is the best cheat code there is. Vegas is right more than half the time in MLB baseball as well, not just football. The odds makers have these games ranked highest today:

Anything over 9 runs total for the game is fine. We don’t need to really consider other stacks with other games unless we still have a high IRT or implied run totoal for a team. Check back at regularly to see the 5 major odds makers lines, consensus O/U’s (Over Unders) as well as some IRT total projections I will show you at a later time. We are especially looking at games over 10 runs as they many times have been running up to 20 runs! These are the teams we want to stack with per below. Another thing you can do to cut to the chase quickly is to check the prop bets for the day in MLB, which can best be found at many sports betting sits for the individual player O/U’s.

Pitcher Advice for today:

The higher up in the list, you can actually use for cash, as the lower down in the list, the risk increases for tournaments.

  1. S. Beiber

What to Use for Statistical analysis for hitters. 

Here’s what we measure. wOPS

Here’s what it looks like basically on screen with the worst pitchers on top, that is reverse optimized order for the day.

This picture does not show today’s slate but rather just an example of what to look for in any type of contest. Click on the picture below to get the DraftDashboard to use in keeping track of the players you want to play, using the optimizer to save lots of time.

MLB algorithm dfs 6/29

The wOPS is the Weighted On base + Slugging % so that you know how well a pitcher and/or batter is expected to perform verses the handedness average lineup of the day. If you hover over the L or R-X% you can also see a breakdown of the amount of lefties, the amount of righties, and swich hitting players they are facing today. It will give you the wOPS for each. Something to play around with and once you get the hang of using it, it becomes a lot easier to sort this information.

Ok, so here’s our hitter we need to try and balance out today, watching those players on our draftdashboard or writing them down.

As for pitchers let’s take a look at something borrowed from the dfsarmy and their research team found here: DFS Army Articles

Trending Players to Watch: Low Cost, Possibly low owned

10 thoughts on “MLB DFS Picks Today for 10/12/20”

  1. Are you a professional gambler? This is a ton of information with quality research to give yourself the best odds to come out on top. Do you offer the same advice for football? I enter a lot of tournaments throughout the season and having this information all ready sorted through would be beneficial for me coming up with my picks.

    1. Absolutely, will give a heads up for NFL and College throughout the season, taking in a lot of data and eye ball test preparation too!

  2. You introduced me to a whole new world of Fantasy Sports. It was interesting that you introduced fantasy baseball in a site created for fantasy football. That caught my attention. 

    I had no idea that this is a huge area of interest. Just for the heck of it I clicked the FanDuel tab and was astounded to see how much money changes hands in this field. Almost 3 million winners and more than $4.5B involved? This is quite amazing.

    There is one aspect that I have a question about. I’m not sure of the odds making process. Since I am ignorant of most players names, can I assume that the players are real people? 

    Thanks for alerting me to something new. I will have to check this out further. 

  3. Great post! You are spot-on when saying that on any given day there are too many games to keep track of so this is definitely is a valuable process for the avid fantasy player. Great link to and consideration about weather as it definitely has an impact. Baseball is filled with so many metrics and I really like your wOPS measurement, Weighted On Base + Slugging Percentage. Not all people take into consideration the impact that a right-handed vs. left-handed pitcher has in any given game, so again thank you for pointed out these metrics and providing a reference point for the reader. I will definitely be bookmarking this page and recommend that others so as well.

  4. Never really done anything pertaining to this but I heard that there are some great betting odds on baseball and American football too which means that I can make some good money from betting on games. I also know that the best way to be even sure of games to play.

    1. Hey Payton, it would be great to get more people playing fantasy baseball particualarly DFS. Your always welcomed to ask more questions as well as anyone else. There are more things coming I did not even mention here or in my video. There is a lot of info in general to go over. 

  5. hello there. amazing review you have here it really dragged my attention as i was glancing through it i just could not ignore   it i really think that that this article is going to help a lot of people as it is going to help me also I had no idea that this is a huge area of interest.
