MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/22/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

There are a couple of trends that come to mind when looking at Monday’s MLB props on Monkey Knife Fight. The first is that young rising stars offer potential value.

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/19/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

We are at the stage of the baseball season in which some players are getting opportunities that weren’t necessarily there for them early in the season. No player in baseball has responded to a brief trip to the minors like Lourdes Gurriel Jr. who is slugging .681 with 17 home runs in 46 games since... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/16/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Getting on base is the name of the game. It may have been popularized by Moneyball but the idea remains central to generating offense in Major League Baseball. The top players when it comes to getting on base are a who’s who, for the most part. Mike Trout, Christian Yelich, Cody Bellinger, Carlos Santana. Wait,... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/15/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

While the tendency this season has been to side with pitchers going over on strikeouts because home runs and strikeouts are the way to play these days, but it’s not a given that every pitcher is going to mow down hitters. That is relevant for today when it looks like there could be some value... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/12/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Venue matters in any sport, but certainly in baseball, where home-road splits can reveal some fascinating tendencies. It’s not a big deal if a star can put up numbers both at home and on the road or if a backup catcher can’t hit at home or on the road, but there are players who lose... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/11/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

In the past two months, Lance Lynn has been the most effective pitcher in the American League. Pardon? Since May 11, Lynn has gone 7-1 with a 2.81 ERA and 2.12 FIP, with a 1.02 WHIP while striking out 10.6 per nine innings. He’s a dominant ace now. The same Lance Lynn who had a... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/5/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

There are 26 starting pitchers today and it looks like, give or take a few, there could be about four – Jacob de Grom, Justin Verlander, Zack Greinke, and Clayton Kershaw – that look like good bets to suppress the offense from the other side. Otherwise, it looks there should be opportunities for the hitters... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/3/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

As much as I have touted overs on pitcher strikeouts, with some justification, it’s not something to accept blindly. Sometimes the number is just too big to bank on for that day, or maybe it’s a pitcher who doesn’t – even in this environment – pick up a lot of Ks. With a full slate... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 7/2/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 6/25/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

One of the things that is fascinating as we approach the midpoint of the MLB season is that there has been enough time for trends to not only emerge, but change!

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 6/24/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

The game is strikeout ball. As baseball gets ever closer to being a three-true-outcome sport, finding pitchers that are putting up strikeouts means finding sources of potential value. That goes for Monday’s seven-game MLB slate, too. Start with CC Sabathia, who has been around forever, it seems, but is still missing bats. He gets the... Read More

MLB DFS Prop Picks for 6/21/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Friday brings a 15-game Major League Baseball schedule and with the full schedule there are some trends in play.
