MLB DFS Playbook: Opening Day 2019
Howard Bender pores over all the data and all the match-ups for MLB Opening Day 2019 and offers up his favorite plays for Thursday DFS contests.
Happy Opening Day!!!
The long, cold winter has finally passed. The blanket of snow has lifted, the frozen tundra has thawed and like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, baseball is back, baby!
Now the question is -- is that moist, green organic that our feet tread upon simply the springtime grass or giant stacks of cash just waiting to be frolicked in by savvy DFS players?
Eloquent enough for you? Good. Now let's get down to business.
For MLB Opening Day, FanDuel is offering a juicy 14-game slate while Draft Kings is breaking things up into an early 5-game slate with a 9-game main slate. Sorry to those wanting to get in one that Red Sox/Mariners game, but if you really want it, you can do the Showdown thing. Today's Playbook will cover the 14 games FanDuel is offering, so you'll have some options for both the early and main slate on Draft KIngs as well, though we may have to go outside the actual Playbook for DK lineups. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it, though, so for now, let's get to the top plays at each position.
