MLB DFS Picks Today: Top Targets, Values on DraftKings for Saturday, April 30
With a full 15-game slate scheduled for Saturday, it should very well be an exciting day for baseball. It also means that there are a ton of options to create the perfect lineup on DraftKings Daily Fantasy.
Here are some of the players we think you should consider for today’s schedule:
Eric Lauer, Brewers vs. Cubs ($9,600) — So far this season, Lauer has improved with every start. In his last start, against the Phillies, he allowed no runs on five hits and added 13 strikeouts. This Cubs lineup is also much weaker than the Phillies. The Brewers will be looking to go six or seven innings in this game and secure their second win of the year.
Gerrit Cole, Yankees vs. Royals ($10,000) – Cole had major difficulties at the start of the season and it drove some DFS users away from him. However, in his last outing against the Guardians, Cole threw 6.2 scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and one walk. In Kansas City, Cole has had some success in his career as he has a 1.17 ERA with 17 strikeouts in two outings there. Look for another stellar outing from Cole tonight.
Francisco Lindor, Mets vs. Phillies ($5,400) – After a difficult 2021, Lindor seems to be getting back to normal this season. Lindor is hitting .284 with four home runs and 13 RBIs. In his career against Kyle Gibson, in 49 at bat, Lindor hit .349 with two RBIs. He also had a ton of success against the Phillies this season. In four games, Lindor is averaging .313 with two RBIs and two runs. Look for a big game out of Lindor tonight.
Bryce Harper, Phillies vs. Mets ($6,100) – After a tough night, Harper should have a ton of success tonight. He homered against Taijuan Walker during his career. Harper is hitting .266 with three home runs and 14 RBIs this season. It’s not a great value pick, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if Harper puts one over the fence tonight.
Pitcher of value
Chad Kuhl, Rockies vs. Reds ($7,900) — It’s a choice you can’t go wrong with. This season, Kuhl is 2-0 with a 1.10 ERA and 13 strikeouts. It will also help that he faces the worst baseball team the Reds. In his last two outings, against two powerhouse lineups in the Tigers and Phillies, Kuhl has thrown 12 innings allowing just six hits with one run and eight strikeouts. Kuhl at $7,900 on DFS is a must play.
Austin Hays, Orioles vs. Red Sox ($2,700) — This season, Hays has swung the bat very well. He’s hitting .296 with two home runs and nine RBIs. In his career against Eovaldi, Hays is hitting .375 with two RBIs in 16 at-bats. Chances are Hays will visit the base multiple times on Saturday night and it wouldn’t be a shock if he was one of them. best outfielders on DFS.
