MLB Fanduel Picks for 9/4 and Picks Against the Spread

Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

As expected, the series between baseball's two best teams with the Dodgers and Giants was an instant classic. Expect another great game in San Francisco today. Around the rest of the league, multiple teams with playoff aspirations look to even or get ahead in their series.

Daily Fantasy Lineup:

P: Joe Musgrove $9200

C/1B: Max Muncy $4000

2B: DJ LaMahieu $3600

3B: Joey Wendle $2800

SS: Willy Adames $2900

OF: Eric Haase $2700

OF: Adolis Garcia $3500

OF: Dylan Carlson $3100

UTIL: Ty France $3200

New York Mets @ Washington Nationals 1:05 PM ET (Game 1)

Stroman (9-12) vs Fedde (6-9)

The Mets have won 5 in a row and the Nat’s have lost 6 in a row. With the Mets having Stroman going game 1, he should go the distance and get a win.

Pick: Mets

Daily Fantasy picks:

Pete Alonso (1B)

Javy Baez (2B/SS)

Marcus Stroman (SP)

Juan Soto (OF)

New York Mets @ Washington Nationals 4:05 PM ET (Game 2)

Megill (2-3) vs TBD

In the second game of today’s doubleheader, the Nat’s have yet to name a starter. If they avoid their bullpen in game 1, they may go with an opener in game 2.

Pick: Mets

Daily Fantasy picks:

Pete Alonso (1B)

Javy Baez (2B/SS)

Marcus Stroman (SP)

Josh Bell (1B)

Baltimore Orioles @ New York Yankees 1:05 PM ET

Ellis (1-0_ vs Montgomery (5-5)

Don’t overthink this, take the Yankees at home against one of the leagues worst teams as New York is still hanging onto first place in the wild card.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ryan Mountcastle (1B/OF)

Aaron Judge (OF)

Giancarlo Stanton (OF)

Anthony Rizzo (1B)

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Chicago Cubs 2:20 PM ET

TBD vs Hendricks (14-6)

The Cubs have won 4 in a row and have their best starter going in Kyle Hendricks.

Pick: Cubs

Daily Fantasy picks:

Colin Moran (3B)

Patrick Widsom (3B)

Frank Schwindel (OF)

Oakland Athletics @ Toronto Blue Jays 3:07 PM ET

Blackburn (0-1) vs Berrios (9-7)

The A’s bullpen absolutely imploded in yesterday’s game, blowing an 8-2 lead, then giving up a walk off 3 run homerun to their ex shortstop Marcus Semien.

Pick: Blue Jays

Daily Fantasy picks:

Matt Olson (1B)

Jed Lowrie (2B)

Marcus Semien (2B)

Teoscar Hernandez (OF)

Minnesota Twins @ Tampa Bay Rays 4:05 PM ET

Albers (1-0) vs Archer (0-1)

Expect this game to go to the bullpens midway through as both starters are likely to go just 4-5 innings. The Rays have the better bullpen and are one of baseballs best at home.

Pick: Rays

Daily Fantasy picks:

Josh Donaldson (3B)

Miguel Sano (3B)

Joey Wendle (SS)

Randy Arozarena (OF)

Cleveland Indians @ Boston Red Sox 4:10 PM ET

Morgan (2-6) vs Houck (0-3)

Tanner Houck is still searching for his first MLB win. The two starters do not go deep into games yet, so we will see both bullpens early. Take Boston who has won 3 in a row.

Pick: Red Sox

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ahmed Rosario (2B)

Jose Ramirez (3B)

Kike Hernandez (2B)

Rafael Devers (3B)

Philadelphia Phillies @ Miami Marlins 6:10 PM ET

Suarez (6-4) vs Rogers (7-6)

The Marlins crushed the Phillies in game one of this series behind a big game from rookie Jesus Sanchez. Today should have a lot less scoring as both starting lefties have kept runs at a minimum this season.

Pick: Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Andrew McCutchen (OF)

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Jesus Sanchez (OF)

Detroit Tigers @ Cincinnati Reds 7:10 PM ET

Boyd (3-7) vs Mahle (10-5)

The Tigers walloped the Reds in game 1 and today could see a lot of runs as well. As good as Tyler Mahle has been this season, he does struggle at home, with a 6.00 era. Matthew Boyd is making just his second start off the IL.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Eric Haase (C/OF)

Jonathan Schoop (1B/2B)

Jonathan India (2B/3B)

Nick Castellanos (OF)

Chicago White Sox @ Kansas City Royals 7:10 PM ET

Lopez (3-1) vs Lynch (4-3)

Rookie Daniel Lynch has not given up more than 1 run in each of his last 3 starts. The Royals jumped on the White Sox starting pitching yesterday and could do so again today.

Pick: Royals

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jose Abreu (1B)

Eloy Jimenez (OF)

Salvador Perez (C)

Whit Merrifield (2B)

St Louis Cardinals @ Milwaukee Brewers 7:10 PM ET

Kim (6-6) vs Houser (7-6)

The Cardinals blasted the Brewers in game 1 yesterday but have struggled against Adrian Houser this season. The same goes for the Brew Crew against Kwang Hyung Kim. I like the Brewers bullpen to win even the series.

Pick: Brewers/Under 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Paul Goldschmidt (1B)

Dylan Carlson (OF)

Willy Adames (SS)

Avisail Garcia (OF)

Seattle Mainers @ Arizona D-Backs 8:10 PM ET

Gonzales (6-5) vs Castellanos (1-1)

Game 1 of this series saw the D-Backs come back from a 5-run deficit only to lost 6-5. This game should see the over again as it’s hard to trust either starter limiting runs.

Pick: Over 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Mitch Haniger (OF)

Ty France (2B/3B)

Ketel Marte (2B/OF)

Carson Kelly (C/OF)

Atlanta Braves @ Colorado Rockies 8:10 PM ET

Anderson (6-5) vs Marquez (11-10)

German Marquez is outstanding at home, with an 8-2 record and 3.13 era, yes that’s in Colorado; crazy! Ian Anderson is coming off an outstanding start and win against the leagues best Giants. Runs should be limited.

Pick: Rockies, under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Freddie Freeman (1B)

Austin Riley (3B)

Brendan Rodgers (2B)

Connor Joe (1B/OF)

Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants 8:40 PM ET

Urias (15-3) vs TBD

Game one of this rivalry started out with an instant classic. Down 0-1 in the 9th, the Dodgers tied the game, only to have both teams tie again in the 10th at 2-2 then the Giants win on a 2 out error in the bottom of the 11th. The Dodgers used their entire bullpen and need Urias to go deep into this game. Look for the Dodgers to even the series.

Pick: Dodgers

Daily Fantasy picks:

Max Muncy (1B/2B)

Corey Seager (SS)

Kris Bryant (3B/OF)

Wilmer Flores (3B)

Houston Astros @ San Diego Padres 8:40 PM ET

Valdez (9-4) vs Musgrove (9-8)

Both pitchers have been incredible over their last several starts, so taking the under might be the best way to go. Joe Musgrove is coming off a complete game shutout while Framber Valdez has 5 straight Quality Starts.

Pick: Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Framber Valdez (SP)

Yordan Alvarez (1B)

Joe Musgrove (SP)

Fernando Tatis Jr (SS)

Texas Rangers @ Los Angeles Angels 9:07 PM ET

Allard (3-11) vs Suarez (5-7)

Kolby Allard has progressed this season but still hard to trust, especially on the road. Jose Suarez has had a rough stretch, going 1-5 over his last 6 starts with a +6 era.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Nick Solak (2B/OF)

Adolis Garcia (OF)

David Fletcher (2B)

Phil Gosselin (3B)
