Daily Fantasy Sports MLB Picks, Previews – May 13

DFS911.com has what we believe should be some hot daily fantasy sports picks for Wednesday’s MLB games. 

Series: Pirates vs. Phillies

It’s a perfect time for Francisco Liriano to redeem himself going up against the Philadelphia Phillies. 

He’s only permitted the current Phillies roster to bat .136 against him. 

Liriano is looking for his second win of the season despite having allowed no more than 2 runs in four of his six starts, with 3 in another.  He hasn’t allowed more than 3 hits in four of those starts.  And Liriano has pitched 6 or more innings in five of his first six starts. 

His only poor start of the season was his last and Philadelphia offers the perfect medicine to forget that 6-run nightmare. 

Liriano is priced at $8600 and he should get some consideration this day for one’s daily fantasy roster. 

He’s going up against Cole Hamels, who allowed no more than one run in four of his seven starts this season.  That includes his last start against the Mets.

Hamels has also enjoyed great success against Pittsburgh, allowing .220 hitting versus the current roster. 

Six of the seven games Hamels have started have not gone OVER 7. 
Hamels has pitched at least six innings in his last six starts. 

The Pirates will play on the road so we anticipate Pittsburgh to be betable with a dime line under -150.  They beat Philadelphia in 6 of 7 games last season and won the first game of this current season as we were going to press Monday night.

If this one has a total of 6.5 or higher, check to see if our sister site Gambling911.com pulls the trigger on the UNDER.

Starling Marte – The Pirates outfielder is batting well of late and is 3-for-7 against Hamels with a double.  He has the potential to be on a hot streak going up against Aaron Harang tomorrow, for whom he has hit 5-for-12 against.  He’s a little pricey though at $4100. 

Series: Cardinals vs. Indians

Cardinals starter John Lackey has had two dominant performances in his last two starts, going six innings or more in each of those, but has fared poorly versus two of the Indians hottest hitters right now, David Murphy and Michael Brantley.  This is certainly let down territory we are entering.

Corey Klubber comes into this game having given up 6 or more runs in his last four starts.  He’s also winless on the season. When it comes to betting on this game, it’s tough to go against a starting pitcher we know is good who comes into this game with his back against the wall whether it be a play on the opposing team or the OVER.  Stick to the fantasy plays here folks. 

David Murphy of the Cleveland Indians killed it the other night going 4-for-4 against Minnesota.  That brilliant performance helped bring his ERA up to .298.  He’s 11-for-25 against the Cardinals John Lackey and that includes three extra base hits. 

Michael Brantley – Not only has this Indians outfielder hit well against Lackey (4-for-11 with 2 extra base hits and 2 RBIs), he’s been superb in recent performances as well.  Brantley has 9 runs and 15 hits over his last ten games.  He doesn’t come cheap though at $4300.  Consider building a roster around the Indians star if you think you can afford it.

More Considerations:

Bryce Harper – The Nationals outfielder is priced around $5300, a little steep perhaps but he is on fire of late.  In his last six games, Harper has enjoyed 13 hits (7 home runs), 16 RBIs, and 11 runs.

Alex Rodriguez – He is 1-for-4 against Nathan Karnes with a homer.

Robinson Cano – Cano went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in the 7-2 win over the A’s Saturday. (Sat May 9).  His SLG is of .390 is well below his career average of .497 but Cano is also 34-for-84 against San Diego’s James Shields with 15 RBIs over that time.  This equates to an average just over .400.  In four of his last ten games, Cano has had two or more hits.

Kyle Seager has hit in 7 of his last 8 games and has had at least one run in six of those.  He’s 5-for-11 against James Shields of the Mariners with two homeruns. 

Marcus Semien – The Athletics Marcus Semien hit his sixth home run of the season last night and has hit well against left-handed pitching. He draws a favorable matchup against Wade Miley.

Adam Jones has had success against right-handers this season and will face one today in Toronto’s Aaron Sanchez.  Jones is priced at $3800. 

Thursday May 14

DFS911.com has your Giants vs. Reds series daily fantasy MLB picks for May 13. 

Series: Giants vs. Reds

Tim Lincecum may be just what the doctor ordered with Joey Votto’s mini-slump having gone 5-for-14 with a homer against him, though his $3700 price does leave a bad taste in our mouths.

Overall, Lincecum has not fared well vs. San Francisco, allowing 32 hits off of 101 bats to the current Reds lineup.  

Lincecum has not permitted any runs in his last two starts encompassing a total of 14 innings.

The last time he faced the Reds in 2014, Lincecum allowed eight runs in just over 4 innings.  He allowed 8 the previous year as well.  See a trend?

Reds starting pitcher Joey Cueto has gone 7 or more innings in all but one game this season.  That May 3 start he allowed 9 hits and 5 runs, the most runs of any game he has started this season.

Last year against San Francisco, Cueto pitched 8.1 innings and permitted just four hits and two runs over that time. 

Angel Pagan – He has hit in 7 of his last 10 games and presents an excellent opportunity for daily fantasy sports players Thursday having gone 4-for-7 with a triple against Cueto. 

Marlon Byrd is 3-for-8 with a triple against Lincecum. 

Joey Votto – See above.

Todd Frazier is 2-for-5 vs. Lincecum with three RBIs.

Watch our sister site Gambling911.com to see if they will be on Cincinnati in this game Thursday.

More Considerations:

Prince Fielder – You will want to build your roster around Fielder today.  He’s batting at .336 currently and has gone 11-for-23 against the Royals Jeremy Guthrie for an average of nearly .500.  He’s had four extra bases, four RBIs and a homerun over this time.  He’s hit in nine of his last ten games coming into Tuesday.  Fielder is a bargain at $3300.

Jose Bautista is another given going 6-for-15 vs. Houston’s Roberto Hernandez with 5 extra bases.  He rested his injured shoulder on Monday.  Bautista had four hits in his previous three games leading up to Monday’s break.  Three of his last ten starts featured games with two hits. 

Starling Marte – He has hit 5-for-12 against Aaron Harang but is priced high at $4300.  A hot performance against Cole Hamels Wednesday could be enough to pull the trigger.

Elvis Andrus – Liking his price of $25K.  He’s hit in 7 of his last 9 and is 9-for-25 against Jeremy Guthrie. 

Friday May 15

Prince Fielder – Once again Fielder is in play having gone 7-for-22 against Cleveland’s Bruce Chen.  That includes 2 homeruns, 3 doubles and 6 RBIs.

Adrian Beltre – The Texas Rangers third baseman is 9-for-25 against Chen with 3 homers.  He has hit in eight of his last nine games.  He’s had two hits in each of his last three starts coming into Wednesday night’s game.  Two of those were homeruns.  Solid value at $3100.
