It has been a busy week as teams in contention are trying to finalize deals before the 4PM trade deadline today.  The Dodgers are looking to make a major splash by finalizing a deal for one of baseball's top pitchers, Max Scherzer.

Below are the top DFS picks for today:

Chicago Cubs @ Washington Nationals 7:05 PM ET

Williams (4-2) vs TBD

Cubs starting pitchers Trevor Williams is simply too risky to take in this matchup, even after both teams just traded away many of the core players they’ve had for several seasons. With both teams most likely busting out new lineups with many new players, lean towards the home team with Juan Soto.

Pick: Nationals Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Juan Soto (OF) $4000

Philadelphia Phillies @ Pittsburgh Pirates 7:05 PM ET

Velasquez (3-5) vs Crowe (2-5)

A matchup of two pitchers with very high ERA’s, this game has runs written all over it. Take the Phillies and the much more powerful lineup on the road.

Pick: Phillies -1.5, Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Bryce Harper (OF) $4200

Andrew McCutchen (OF) $3500

JT Realmuto (C/1B) $3300

Ke’Bryan Hayes (3B) $2700

Kansas City Royals @ Toronto Blue Jays 7:07 PM ET

Lynch (1-2) vs Stripling (3-6)

Another matchup of below average starters going against two teams hitting the ball really well right now. It’s just too tough of a task for rookie Daniel Lynch to take on this Blue Jays lineup on the road. You could pick just about anyone from the Blue Jays lineup in this one.

Pick: Blue Jays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Marcus Semien (2B/SS) $3700

Vlad Guerrero Jr. 1B/(3B) $4500

George Springer (OF) $4200

Teoscar Hernadez (OF) $3400

MLB Ball

Jorge Soler (OF) $3300

Whit Merrifield (2B/OF) $3100

Baltimore Orioles @ Detroit Tigers 7:10 PM ET

Harvey (5-10) vs Skubal (6-9)

Somehow after a dismal season thus far, Matt Harvey has back-to-back shutout wins. Tarik Skubal has been good for the Tigers but I’d stick with the hot hand here with Harvey and the Orioles on the road.

Pick: Orioles Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Trey Mancini (1B/OF) $3700

Cedric Mullins (OF) $3100

Akil Baddoo (OF) $3600

Eric Haase (C/OF) $3500

Robbie Grossman (OF) $3200

Cincinnati Reds @ New York Mets 7:10 PM ET

Gray (2-6) vs Carrasco (0-0)

Joey Votto’s homerun tear continues, another game, another homerun. Making that 6 straight games with a homerun. It’s basically mandatory he be in your lineup. However, Sonny Gray has been awful his last two starts. This is a tough game to bounce back since Carlos Carrasco returns and makes his Mets debut. Too much emotion for the home team here, take the Mets.

Pick: Mets Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Joey Votto (1B) $4200

Tyler Naquin (OF) $2700

Pete Alonso (1B) $3500

Dominic Smith (1B/OF) $2800

Boston Red Sox @ Tampa Bay Rays 7:10 PM ET

Perez (7-6) vs Fleming (7-5)

Tough to like anything in this one besides offense. Martin just pitched his first quality start in two months while Josh Fleming normally goes no longer than 4 innings but has been giving up plenty of runs in his few innings he starts. Take the over

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Xander Bogaerts (SS) $3400

Rafael Devers (3B) $3900

Bobby Dalbec (1B) $2200

Kike Hernandez (2B/OF) $3300

Yandy Diaz (1B/3B) $2800

Brandon Lowe (2B/OF) $3200

Wander Franco (SS) $2700

New York Yankees Miami Marlins 7:10 PM ET

Taillon (6-4) vs Thompson (2-3)

Jameson Taillon has been absolutely outstanding for the last month. Winning 5 of his last 6 starts. That combined with the Yankees adding Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo plus the Marlins trading away their best batter and reliever, Yankees should cruise.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jameson Taillon $7900

Anthony Rizzo (1B) $3600

Joey Gallo (OF) $3000

Gleyber Torres (2B/SS) $3600

Milwaukee Brewers @ Atlanta Braves 7:20 PM ET

Burnes vs Toussaint (1-1)

This has the makings for one great pitching duel. Cornin Burnes has a ridiculous 0.99 era the last month and Touki Toussaint has a 1.32 era the last month. Will something finally give on offense against either of these two? Unlikely.

Pick: Under  

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tyrone Taylor (OF) $2300

Austin Riley (3B) $3100

Ozzie Albies (2B) $3400

Seattle Mariners @ Texas Rangers 8:05 PM ET

TBD vs Allard (2-8)

Mariners are still playing well despite the deflating feeling after their recent questionable trades. The Rangers however gave up their biggest bat and have Kolby Allard on the bump who is having a very difficult season.

Pick: Mariners -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Mitch Haniger (OF) $3400

Dylan Moore (2B/OF) $2600

Abraham Toro (3B) $2500

Cleveland Indians @ Chicago White Sox 8:10 PM ET

Mejia (1-6) vs Lynn (10-3)

The records of each of these pitchers should be enough to predict this one. The White Sox having lost 2 straight and 6 of 10 are in a good spot for a bounce back game coming home behind Lance Lynn.

Pick: White Sox -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Andrew Vaughn (1B/OF) $2900

Yoan Moncada (3B) $2900

Minnesota Twins @ St Louis Cardinals 8:15 PM ET

Berrios (7-5) vs LeBlanc (0-2)

Jose Berrios is one of the biggest names left on the trade market, and being that this is the final day of the trade deadline, I’d be surprised to see him start this game. Take the hot hitting Cardinals at home.

Pick: Cardinals Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Dylan Carlson (OF) $3900

Harrison Bader (OF) $3400

Paul Goldschmidt (1B) $3900

Oakland Athletics @ Los Angeles Angels 9:38 PM ET

Bassitt (10-3) vs Sandoval (3-4)

Patrick Sandoval is coming off a near no hitter and continues his outstanding month. Chris Bassitt has been declining of late but still has a great track record against the Angels. Tough one to choose besides taking the under in what should be a low scoring game.

Pick: Under 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ramon Laureano (OF) $3100

Straling Marte (OF) $3900

David Fletcher (2B/SS) $2900

Max Stassi (C) $3100

Justin Upton (OF) $2700

Houston Astros @ San Francisco Giants 9:45 PM ET

Valdez (6-2) vs Gausman (9-4)

Framber Valdez is coming off a strong start while Gausman seems to have been figured out by the league since the All-Star Break. The Giants get a boost with the return of Brandon Crawford but may still be without Buster Posey. The Astros have significantly boosted their bullpen, making late innings extremely difficult to score.

Pick: Astros Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Michael Brantley (OF) $3300

Kyle Tucker (OF) $3700

Brandon Crawford (SS) $2500

Mike Yastrzemski (OF) $3100

Colorado Rockies @ San Diego Padres (10:10 PM ET)

Gray (6-6) vs Weathers (4-2)

John Gray is another name in heavy trade talks and may not end up making this start. That sided with the Rockies being awful on the road, take the Padres easily in this one.

Pick: Padres -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Adam Frazier (2B/OF) $2700

Jake Cronenworth (1B/2B) $2900

Manny Machado (3B) $4000

Wil Myers (OF) $2400
