We have a great week of games on tap as teams begin to make their push for the playoffs.

Here are the MLB DFS picks for today;

Cleveland Indians @ Toronto Blue Jays 3:07 PM ET

Morgan (1-3) vs Ray (9-5)

The Jays are on fire right now, especially since returning to Toronto. This is too much to ask of the rookie Eli Morgan to go into Toronto against this lineup. Keep rolling with George Springer and Marcus Semien in this one.

Pick: Blue Jays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

George Springer (OF)

Marcus Semien (2B/SS)

Philadelphia Phillies @ Washington Nationals 7:05 PM ET

Suarez (5-3) vs Gray (0-0)

The Phillies got back into the win column with a shellacking of the Pirates on Sunday behind JT Realmuto’s 5 hit day. As high as Josiah Gray’s upside is, side with the Phillies against the rookie making his debut for his new team.

Pick: Phillies -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

JT Realmuto (C/1B)

Jean Segura (2B/SS)

Didi Gregorius (SS)

Baltimore Orioles @ New York Yankees 7:05 PM ET

Lopez (2-12) vs Heaney (6-7)

The Yankees simply own the Orioles and going against Lopez should continue that trend. Back Andrew Heaney and the Yankees in his pinstripe debut.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Anthony Rizzo (1B)

Gleyber Torres (2B/SS)

Joey Gallo (OF)

Seattle Mariners @ Tampa Bay Rays 7:10 PM ET

Flexen (9-5) vs Wacha (2-2)

The Rays are coming off a big series win against the Red Sox while the Mariners come in having lost on two straight Walk Off Homeruns. That combined with the Mariner’s travel, take the Rays.

Pick: Rays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Mitch Haniger (OF)

Brandon Lowe (2B/OF)

Austin Meadows (OF)

Nelson Cruz (UTIL)

Wander Franco (SS)

New York Mets @ Miami Marlins 7:10 PM ET

Megill (1-0) vs TBD

Tylor Megill has been pitching well. Monday should be no different facing a depleted Marlins lineup who struggled to score all weekend against the other New York team.

Pick: Mets -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Javy Baez (SS)

Los Angeles Angels @ Texas Rangers 8:05 PM ET

(TBD) vs Dunning (4-7)

Well the Rangers had a fun weekend, winning back to back games via walk off homeruns from Jonah Heim. With the Angels still deciding who to start this game, and Dunning having a rough last several starts, I’m leaning with the over.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

David Fletcher (2B/OF)

Max Stassi (C)

Jack Mayfield (SS)

Jonah Heim (C)

Eli White (OF)

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Milwaukee Brewers 8:10 PM ET

Wilson (2-3) vs Lauer (3-4)

Bryce Wilson is making his debut for the Pirates against Eric Lauer who has been pitching well this season in his spot starts. Look for the Brewers to take this one at home.

Pick: Brewers -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ke’Bryan Hayes (3B)

Tyrone Taylor (OF)

Willy Adames (SS)

Rowdy Tallez (1B)

San Francisco Giants @ Arizona D-Backs 9:40 PM ET

DeSclafani (10-5) vs Widener (1-1)

The Giants just took the series against the Astro’s so there’s no way the D-Backs are slowing them down, especially after their latest crushing from the Dodgers. Giants roll.

Pick: Giants -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Lamont Wade (OF)

Kris Bryant (3B/OF)

Mike Yastrzemski (OF)

Brandon Crawford (SS)

Ketel Marte (2B/SS)

Daily Fantasy Lineup:

P: Anthony DeSclafani $8700

C/1B: JT Realmuto $3000

2B: Gleyber Torres $2900

3B: Kris Bryant $4200

SS: Javy Baez $3500

OF: Joey Gallo $3500

OF: Mike Yastrzemski $3500

OF: Tyrone Taylor $2900

UTIL: David Fletcher $2800
