FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (4/11)

The Angels and Rangers could score 15+ runs combined tonight

We’ve got just 7 games to work with and the pitching selection is abysmal. It shouldn’t matter all that much, however, because there is so much hitting available to us. In fact, one game as an 11.5 over/under and it isn’t even being played in Coors. I’ll tell you all the players who I think are worth consideration today from all main-slate games, my favorite stacks, then my current cash game lineup.

  • Chance of delay in PIT @ CHC – 35%, PPD odds = 5%
  • 18 MPH wind from RF in LAA/TEX game (avoid lefty power)

I tell myself the same thing every day when I build a lineup. This is your weekly reminder as well: “Don’t be an idiot”

It is simple, but entirely necessary. This is your hard earned cash, and you don’t have to throw it away. Think out your player selection and make the single smartest lineup you can put together. That includes watching as starting lineups roll in before lock. If a player you loved is batting 7th instead of 2nd like you were anticipating, maybe rethink things. If the opposite is true and there is a player you like, but expected to bat near the end of the order, turns up in the heart of the order, then don’t hesitate to get him plugged in. Most importantly, don’t get cute. Just play to win, period.

As always, be sure to pay close attention to the lineups when they are released and monitor the weather leading up to game time. For reference throughout the season, be sure to bookmark our overview of MLB Park Factors and how to Use Weather to Your Advantage in MLB DFS.
