Hello all. Most of you know me from my twitter account @DFSClutchBoy . I have been playing DFS since spring of 2015 and have had mild success in MLB DFS since them. My MLB DFS reputation was best showcased when I cashed 17 straight slates during the summer of last year all while posting my lineups for free publicly. Also on the early slate 5 days ago (4/19) I was able to take down a few GPP’s for myself and subscribers. That’s enough about me lets talk about pitching on…
The time is finally here – the return of baseball! While I’m always thrilled to have basketball on the TV, there’s nothing like some Major League Baseball. The signal that Summer is around the corner and who doesn’t love the sound of bat cracking as it rips a baseball?!
With the first half of the MLB season officially in the books, I find it quite appropriate to share my lineup building process and, essentially, my strategy when it comes to MLB DFS. As many providers, ourselves included, have experienced, MLB DFS is a completely different animal. The season is an absolute grind and inconsistency should be expected. Baseball is a tough sport to predict, but if you’re analyzing the right trends and tools, you should be able to come out with a profit.
With a lot of newcomers in the DFS world for the 2016 MLB season and with the new Fanduel scoring system that has drastically altered the amount of points that people put up, we thought it would be appropriate to share our insight on how to find success in MLB DFS this season.
MLB Daily Fantasy can be a daunting endeavor when you first get started. There are a lot more things that you have to pay attention to, from the weather, the Batter vs Pitcher matchup, hot/cold streaks, and especially the ballpark.
