Fanduel MLB Picks for 9/3 and Picks Against the Spread

Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

A full set of games to kickoff the Labor Day Holiday Weekend. The must-watch game and series is in San Francisco between the top two teams and records in baseball with red-hot Dodgers taking on the Giants. It’s been over 30 years since these two teams were at a first-place tie for the division this late in the season.

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Chicago Cubs 2:20 PM ET

Brault (0-3) vs Mills (6-6)

Alec Mills is coming off a strong start and the Cubs have won 3 in a row. I like them at home today in their Friday morning game.

Pick: Cubs

Daily Fantasy picks:

Colin Moran (3B)

Patrick Widsom (3B)

Ian Happ (OF)

New York Mets @ Washington Nationals 

Hill (6-6) vs Nolin (0-2)

The Mets have won 4 in a row and the Nat’s have lost 5 in a row and have a winless rookie starter going today.

Pick: Mets

Daily Fantasy picks:

Pete Alonso (1B)

Javy Baez (2B/SS)

Carter Kieboom (3B)

Baltimore Orioles @ New York Yankees 7:05 PM ET

Means (5-6) vs Cortes (2-2)

The Yankees win streak hit a halt but being back in the Bronx against the AL’s worst team should get them back on track.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ryan Mountcastle (1B/OF)

Aaron Judge (OF)

Giancarlo Stanton (OF)

DJ LeMahieu (1B/2B)

Oakland Athletics @ Toronto Blue Jays 7:07 PM ET

Manaea (8-9) vs Manoah (5-2)

Both of these teams are struggling to find consistency at a time when they need it most. Sean Manaea has struggled the second half while Alex Manoah is coming off 2 straight quality starts.

Pick: Blue Jays

Daily Fantasy picks:

Matt Olson (1B)

Jed Lowrie (2B)

Marcus Semien (2B)

George Springer (OF)

Cleveland Indians @ Boston Red Sox 7:10 PM ET

Quantrill (4-2) vs Eovaldi (10-8)

This is a sneaky good pitching matchup as Cal Quantrill has been one of the biggest surprises this season. He has a 1.43 era over his last 7 starts. Meanwhile Nate Eovaldi continues to dominate at Fenway. I like the underdog Indians who have won 4 in a row and 7 of 10.

Pick: Indians

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ahmed Rosario (2B)

Jose Ramirez (3B)

JD Martinez (UTIL)

Bobby Dalbec (1B)

Detroit Tigers @ Cincinnati Reds 7:10 PM ET

Alexander (2-2) vs Gutierrez (9-5)

Vladimir Gutierrez has been one of baseball's best rookie pitchers this season but has struggled a bit at home compared to the road. That said, I will like the Reds bats to get to Tyler Alexander.

Pick: Reds -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Robbie Grossman (OF)

Vladimir Gutierrez (SP)

Jonathan India (2B/3B)

Nick Castellanos (OF)

Minnesota Twins @ Tampa Bay Rays 7:10 PM ET

Dobnak (1-6) vs Wacha (2-4)

This game has a very unpleasing pitching matchup as the Twins recalled Randy Dobnak who has an era over 7 while Michael Wacha has a 6.75 era his last 7 starts. This game looks like the over.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jorge Polanco (SS)

Josh Donaldson (3B)

Brandon Lowe (2B)

Wander Franco (SS/3B)

Philadelphia Phillies @ Miami Marlins 7:10 PM ET

Gibson (10-5) vs Luzardo (5-7)

This one seems too easy to pick. Kyle Gibson is 4-2 with a 3.16 era as a Philly while Jesus Luzardo is now 3-3 with a 7.62 era with the Marlins. He is however coming off his best start this season where he threw 6 innings of 1 hit shutout ball against the Reds. Still not enough for me to pick the Marlins.

Pick: Phillies -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Odubel Herrera (OF)

Andrew McCutchen (OF)

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Chicago White Sox @ Kansas City Royals 8:10 PM ET

Keuchel (8-7) vs Hernandez (4-1)

These two teams are heading in opposite direction right now but Dallas Keuchel has really struggled his last 2 starts by giving up 12 runs in just 6 innings pitched. Carlos Hernandez was won 3 in a row with a 2.77 era over his last 7 starts.

Pick: Royals

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jose Abreu (1B)

Eloy Jimenez (OF)

Salvador Perez (C)

St Louis Cardinals @ Milwaukee Brewers 8:10 PM ET

Wainwright (13-7) vs Peralta (9-3)

This might be the pitching matchup of the day between these two division rivals. Adam Wainwright is 6-1 over his last 7 starts with a microscopic 1.59 era. As good as Peralta has been too, it’s hard to pick against Wainwright right now.

Pick: Cardinals 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Adam Wainwright (SP)

Nolan Arenado (3B)

Christian Yelich (OF)

Atlanta Braves @ Colorado Rockies 8:40 PM ET

Ynoa (4-4) vs Senzatela (3-9)

Antonio Senzatela has 3 straight quality starts but I don’t think it’ll be enough to outlast the Braves offense as the Braves are still trying to hold off the hot Phillies.

Pick: Braves 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Freddie Freeman (1B)

Austin Riley (3B)

Trevor Story (SS)

Charlie Blackmon (OF)

Texas Rangers @ Los Angeles Angels 9:38 PM ET

Otto (0-0) vs Ohtani (8-1)

Shohei Ohtani should have no trouble with this Rangers lineup but on the other side, rookie Glenn Otto has outstanding strikeout numbers in the minor leagues. This game could see runs at a limit.

Pick: Angels/Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Nick Solak (2B/OF)

Shohei Ohtani (SP)

Jack Mayfield (SS)

Jared Walsh (1B)

Seattle Mainers @ Arizona D-Backs 9:40 PM ET

TBD vs Bumgarner (7-9)

The Mariners are the much better team and still fighting for a playoff spot. Madison Bumgarner has been outstanding at home this season and overall the last 2 months.

Pick: D-Backs 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Mitch Haniger (OF)

Ty France (2B/3B)

Ketel Marte (2B/OF)

Dalton Varsho (C/OF)

Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants

Price (4-2) vs DeSclafani (11-6)

This is the game of the day and series of the weekend. The Dodgers and Giants are tied for the best record in baseball and first place in the NL West Division. It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to this historic rivalry. Anthony DeSclafani has been crushed by the Dodgers this season so take the Dodgers in game 1.

Pick: Dodgers

Daily Fantasy picks:

Max Muncy (1B/2B)

Corey Seager (SS)

Will Smith (C)

Buster Posey (C)

Kris Bryant (3B)

Houston Astros @ San Diego Padres 10:10 PM ET

Urquidy (6-3) vs Arrieta (5-12)

Jose Urquidy makes his return for the Astro’s against a struggling Padres team. The Astro’s offense should have no trouble with Jake Arrieta who has a +7 era this season and a 13.50 era with the Padres.

Pick: Astro’s -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Carlos Correa (SS)

Alex Bregman (3B)

Kyle Tucker (OF)

Fernando Tatis Jr (SS)

Daily Fantasy Lineup:

P: Adam Wainwright $9600

C/1B: Max Muncy $3800

2B: Jed Lowrie $2500

3B: Josh Donaldson $3200

SS: Jack Mayfield $2500

OF: Ahmed Rosario $3400

OF: Ian Happ $3000

OF: Andrew McCutchen $2800

UTIL: Nick Castellanos $4200
