DraftKings MLB one-off picks:

BvP is one of the most polarizing things among statheads, especially when it comes to daily fantasy games. What it means is going by a batter’s past stats against the night’s pitcher.

I am one of those that closely follow this. Of course it doesn’t tell the whole story. That is especially true in small sample sizes. However, this is a good way to weed through some of the one-off plays aside from your core stack that can help you take down a large pool GPP.

Tonight’s massive GPP will likely be taken down by a crazy lineup that none of us could have imagined. It could be a lineup without a core stack at all. One of my entries will be based almost solely on BvP stats. Here are the ones that stand out over the rest.

Which one-offs should you use around your core stack? Should you just go one-offs all around? It’s viable on a two game slate. We are all expecting two lower scoring games, but some players have really hit the other pitcher well. Here are some options:

Starlin Castro ($3,700) vs. Gerrit Cole: 6/17, 4 RBI, 1 SB
Giancarlo Stanton ($4,600) vs. Max Scherzer: 4-18, 2 HR, 5 RBI
Corey Seager ($4,400) vs. Johnny Cueto: 12/34, 3 HR, 6 RBI
Cody Bellinger ($5,100) vs. Johnny Cueto: 6/17, 1 HR, 1 RBI
Justin Turner ($4,100) vs. Johnny Cueto: 11/31, 1 HR, 2 RBI
Hunter Pence ($4,700) vs. Clayton Kershaw: 18/89, 1 HR, 7 RBI
Wilmer Flores ($3,800) vs. Clayton Kershaw: 5/16, 1 HR, 3 RBI

Seager will be in every lineup for me tonight. He is the closest I’ll get to a core player. Even if I run Cueto, Seager will be in there against him. Good luck out there!
