MLB DFS Picks & Lineup Advice: July 31st
Reminder: the 2023 MLB Daily Plug ended on July 31st. The MLB Model will still update every day through the end of the World Series.
The Daily Plug is our daily MLB DFS Picks & Strategy write-up that highlights the top plays from our Occupy Model.
We’ll start by looking at betting odds and weather situations, then the Plug will provide actionable information for the main slate by making specific recommendations on how much of your bankroll to allocate and exactly which types of contests to play -- all depending on the type of player you are. Note: Plug only written for main slates with 5+ games; not usually fully updated until 6:00pm EST for evening slates.
Consider the Daily Plug an in-depth road map for the main slate. Let’s get to it!
Midday updates are posted in BLUE.
