MLB Playoffs 2019 – DFS Strategy for the October 8, 2019 single game slate.
Breaking down some of the top plays and strategies for attacking the MLB Playoff DFS slate on FanDuel & DraftKings.
The Tuesday slate features one game – with the Astros visiting the Rays for game 4 of their series.
The Rays have forced a game 4, but in all likelihood this is going to have them going up against Justin Verlander on short rest – or perhaps Jose Urquidy if they want to save Verlander (and Gerrit Cole) for a possible game 5. That said, I expect they’ll roll Verlander out there to have Cole in the back pocket in case game 5 comes around.
Here are the SP splits you need to know about.
Extreme split towards RHBs against Urquidy – they have a .344 wOBA and 1.4 HR/9 against him this year.
Yonny Chirinos has a pretty significant split against RHBs as well; .310 wOBA and 1.44 HR/9.
Yarbrough has been pretty effective the last 2 years against both RHBs and LHBs – with LHBs actually having higher HH% splits and a slightly higher HR/9. Don’t sleep on lefties against him today, especially with the light tower power of Yordan Alvarez.
On DK for the captain spot, I really like Altuve ($12,000) – and I don’t think it’s crazy to spend down there to have a well-rounded lineup if you want to make sure you roster a guy like Kiermaier or even Willy Adames who is hitting the ball extremely well these days (3 for 3 yesterday with a HR; on base 6 times in his last 2 games).
Best of luck!
