MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Picks For FanDuel – 7/8/16

fanduel

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

One of the biggest blunders made by many gamblers is betting against themselves.  We are going to simplify the process, so if you win, you can really win – none of this barely break even nonsense.

Our new Draft Strategy is now here.  Please read after the post.  You can use our formula for your own wanted and given stacks and pitchers.  This process wheels them all in alignment.

Now here is what we are going to do for today’s MLB DFS FanDuel style.

We Will Give You – Daily

3 – 7 team stacking options ( We are going to draw most of our players from these squads).

3 – 5 Pitching candidates (High level, midlevel and budget). 

We enter another 4 days before the  ALL Star Break where we have 4 straight slates that will carry Coors Field on them.  We are always going to advise doing a bunch of team stacks wheeled with each other, including Colorado, and we are also recommending you enter all single entry (or low entries max tournaments.)

You at least have a fighting chance to won some money playing FanDuel, with a heavy emphasis on HRs and pitcher wins.  Forget about playing against all of the sharps and rosters on DraftKings. Below we have a full write up on Coors Field for you to read.

Read our latest article about playing against Coors Field nights.

If you decide to play, we have you covered.

July 8, 2016: All 15 Games on the main slate (We Don’t Advise Playing Coors Field Slates In Either FanDuel or DraftKings for just a few rosters in GPP’s, and if you want to avoid the sharps, please head to www.fanpicks.com – and use the PROMO CODE: HELP25  – to start playing against normal players that are just looking to play a few dollars)

Stacking Options  – Todays Rankings

Colorado Rockies vs Vincent Velasquez

Philadelphia Phillies vs Jon Gray

Toronto Blue Jays vs Mike Pelfrey

Boston Red Sox vs Chris Archer

Miami Marlins vs Dan Straily

Chicago White Sox vs Matt Wisler

San Diego Padres vs Scott Kazmir


5 Pitchers to use

We believe the Jake Arrieta (who has owned the Bucs) and Chris Sale will be vying to be the AL and NL Starters Tuesday and throw great games on Friday night.  Since we are playing 7 team stacks – and need some cheap options, we are also implementing Jeff Samardzija, Hisashi Iwakuma and Andrew Cashner to help pay for those bats.  This will be our first ever 7 team stacks and 5 pitchers wheeled rosters for 105 total entries.

We are also fading Stephen Strasburg and Noah Syndergaard, as we think they both will cancel each other out, and both have battled minor injuries of late, while the other guys have a much easier task to pick up that all important Win for 12 FPP.

Jake Arrieta, CHC @ PIT, $11, 300 (NLWC game last year, and this year combined,  has only allowed 2 ERA in his last 4 GS vs Pittsburgh over his last 4 starts).)

Chris Sale, ATL @ CWS, $11, 000 ( A club that has the worst record in the Majors, vs a flamethrowing LHP, that is 14 – 2.)

Jeff Samardzija, ARI @ SF, $9100 (Samardzija always throws a lot of innings, and the Giants have the best record in baseball, which is a perfect recipe for this mid-tier pitcher)

Hisashi Iwakuma, SEA @ KC, $8500 (The Royals couldn’t hit Marcus Stroman the other night, and are barely putting out a representative offense with the injuries they have currently.

Andrew Cashner, SD @ LAD, $6300 (The play here is to use this guy, but also have Adrian Gonzalez face him in several of your 105 rosters.  AG has crushed 4 HRs and walked 5 times – with a 1.182 OPS vs the Padres RHP.  At $6300, and San Diego scoring a lot of runs of late, and killing LHP, this is your best cheap option.)


Team Stacks will most likely have 3 – 4 players on each club and is preferred if they are in order of the batting lineup.  In some case ministacks of 2 – with them back to back in the Batting Order can be used in expensive player picks.
