MLB DFS picks today: top targets, values on DraftKings for DAY’s slate
MLB has scheduled every team to take to the field on Friday night, and DraftKings’ main DFS has a 13-game roster with a sizable pool of players to choose from as you prepare to submit your rosters. Below is an overview of some of the best players available in addition to some value games.
Max Scherzer, NYM vs. SEA ($10,400) – The Mets pitcher got off to a good start early on with a 2.92 ERA in six starts. He allowed 10 hits and 3 runs in his last outing, but he’s proven to be a pitcher you can count on throughout his career as one of the best in the game as he takes on the roster. of the Seattle Mariners.
Clayton Kershaw, LAD vs. PHI ($10,200) – Kershaw has been as good as it gets at the start of 2022 as the Dodgers ace will register with a 1.80 ERA starting No. 6. He has allowed 1 run or less in four of his first five starts before a matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Byron Buxton, MIN vs. CLE ($6,300) – The Minnesota Twins’ designated hitter is one of the best home hitters in MLB, despite going without a hit in his last three games, covering a total of 9 at-bats. He’ll get a matchup with Cleveland Guardians starter Aaron Civale, who arrives with a 9.45 ERA in five starts.
Mike Trout, LAA vs. OAK ($6,200) — The Los Angeles Angels hitter remains a machine who is one of the best players you’ve ever seen in the sport. He will enter with a .337 batting average and in his last two starts he has recorded 5 hits in 7 at bats with 3 homers. He will see Oakland Athletics starter Daulton Jeffries, who has a 5.22 ERA and has struggled in his previous three starts.
Pitcher of value
Jordan Lyles, BAL vs. DET ($5,400) – The Baltimore Orioles starter has done well on the mound so far this season, and betting against the Detroit Tigers offense has been a very profitable route. Detroit scored 3 or fewer points in all but one game in May and ranks dead last in the league in points.
Jared Walsh, LAA vs. OAK ($4,300) – The Angels first baseman has been fantastic at the plate lately, and that should continue Friday night. Walsh went 0-for-4 last night, but before that he had a seven-game hitting streak with a .448 batting average with 4 homers in that span.
