Best MLB DFS Picks Today (3/31/23)

Hello there! Today’s a great day to enjoy some Major League Baseball action as we have a 5 game slate on our hands.

As always, our team is committed to delivering the most valuable insights and picks to help you create the best DFS lineups for DraftKings and FanDuel today.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the MLB DFS Daily Breakdown and see what’s in store for us today!

Best FanDuel Pitchers Today – MLB DFS Lineup Picks

1. Cristian Javier (HOU) vs. Chicago White Sox

Astros pitcher Cristian Javier, priced at $10,100, is set to make his first start since his impressive performance in Game 4 of the World Series, where he threw six innings in Houston’s combined no-hitter.

In 2022, Javier made a significant leap in his young career, finishing with a record of 11-9 and boasting an impressive 2.54 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and a 33.2% strikeout rate in 148 2/3 innings pitched. It’s clear that the talented Javier will be an exciting player to watch this season.

Cristian Javier will certainly be a popular pitching option today with only 5 games on the slate and limited viable pitchers available.

2. David Peterson (NYM) at Miami Marlins

David Peterson ($8,300) had an impressive spring training performance for the Mets and has earned himself a spot in the starting rotation to begin the year. His dominant ability to strike out batters was on full display in the preseason, where he struck out 13 in 12 innings of work across four appearances.

While his tendency to walk batters is a concern, with 101 walks in 222 innings pitched throughout his career, Peterson’s youth and potential for improvement make him an exciting player to watch this season.

Despite the Marlins’ mixed offense of young and veteran players, with the additions of Jean Segura and Luis Arraez to the infield, Peterson should be able to find opportunities for strikeouts in their batting order.

Best FanDuel Team Stacks Today – MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Our picks for top stacks to target on FanDuel (both stacks of 3 and 4 players).

1. New York Mets (4.0)

The New York Mets have around 4.0 implied runs tonight as they face Jesus Luzardo and the Miami Marlins. Look to target the middle of the batting order, Pete Alonso ($3,800), Francisco Lindor ($3,800), and Mark Canha ($2,500). Eduardo Escobar ($2,500) could also be worth considering as well as Starling Marte ($3,700) who has a ton of stolen base upside.

2. Seattle Mariners (4.1)

The Seattle mariners have a 4.1 implied team total today. They will be facing the Cleveland Guardians and Hunter Gaddis. The Guardians have a lot of power up and down the batting order and should be able to attack Gaddis at the plate. Look to build around guys like Josh Bell ($2,800) and Jose Ramirez ($4,000). Lots of other pieces of this batting order should be able to fit nicely price wise.
