Slate Summary

  • Today, we’ve got a big lineup with 11 main games to consider. First up on DraftKings, Yusei Kikuchi. He’s had a strong year and is up against the Royals who are bottom 5 in runs scored. At $8,200, he’s a solid choice for cash games. There are spend up options but paying down for a pitcher who is the 2nd best value play on the slate is hard to pass up on, especially at that price tag.
  • Another pitcher worth your attention is Kyle Harrison. He’s shown promise in his first few games and has a favorable matchup against the Rockies. This is good news if you’re looking to save a bit on pitching. This way, you can spend up on hitters like Aaron Judge on FanDuel, listed at $4,300, and Anthony Santander on DraftKings for $4,500.
  • If you’re looking to stack a team, the Baltimore Orioles are my top pick today with a implied team total of 5.22 against RHP Tanner Houck.

These are the top MLB DFS picks for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups for September 8, 2023.
