MLB Thoughts – 4/02/17 by DraftCheat

OPENING DAY!!! Sort of. Tomorrow may be the real opening day with nearly every team on the schedule and wire-to-wire baseball on the schedule. I am really f——— excited! If you missed the MLB lesson in the Premium Chat yesterday, make sure to check it out. We should have it posted on the site and trimmed down to a manageable level. Just follow along with the links and my instructions. It goes a long way toward showing how I evaluate a matchup. Tomorrow, we’ll have our projections live along with our flagship MLB breakdown article and of course an MLB show in the morning before the games start! For today, I’m simply going to give you a points-per-dollar breakdown of my favorite plays on DraftKings. If you’re looking for a lineup to play today, well, you should be able to figure it out (wink face). LET’S BASEBALL!!!
