FanDuel Daily Fantasy MLB picks for Friday, May 5th

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Let’s play some DFS!

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

My pitching picks have been on fire lately! I even made some money last night with my lineup. I am hopeful you grabbed a few of the players as well. Andriese was dominant in his start against Miami. 7 shutout innings and 8 K’s with a W and QS for 55 FanDuel points.

Pitcher to Target – Wade Miley BAL ($8,200) vs. CWS

The White Sox are bad. They are setting up to be a popular streaming team similar to the Royals. They are near the bottom of the league in hits, BA, OBP, SLG, and OPS. They may have solid minor leaguers, but in the show one-third of their wins are against Kansas City. In 27 games, they tallied 3 runs or less 14 times! It really makes for a juicy matchup for Wade Miley. His 2.0 K/BB ratio leaves some desire, but this is a case of his walks being up rather than the strikeouts being low. He has 38 K’s is 31 innings this year. This is great value for the price.

Pitcher to Stack Against – German Marquez COL vs. ARI

Arizona has been one of the best hitting teams in the league this season. They have a lineup that is full of top value bats right now. They were not very sharp against Marquez last week, but they will be seeing him a second time around tonight at Coors Field. This has the potential to be devastating to the young pitcher. Load up on those Diamondbacks!

Potential Lineup

SP – Wade Miley

C – Matt Wieters

1B – Hanley Ramirez

2B – Jose Altuve

3B – Jake Lamb

SS – Aledmys Diaz

OF – Corey Dickerson

OF – Hernan Perez

OF – Ben Gamel


I know I only have one D’Back, but if any of these players are not in the lineup I will be looking to replace them with Arizona players!
