Ben’s Daily MLB DraftKings Plays – 8/25/23

Ben's MLB Daily DraftKings Plays


What’s up, 4Deep!? I’m covering for Aber tonight, and boy, do we have a loaded 12-game slate on our hands.  If I get off work in time Tx and myself are going to break down the slate live in discord.  I’m excited for this slate and really feel good about some guys. See you all at the top! STACKS UPDATED: 5:30pm Eastern


  1. Spencer Strider DK $12,800 – Blew his load last start and now gets the same matchup.  He’s so expensive I’m fine fading because he needs 35+ to really kill you. I plan to go him in one of my three teams.
  2. Kodai Senga DK $9,600 – The Angels did all but throw in the towel and Senga has been good all season long.  Love him tonight and should cruise through this lineup as long as his command is there.
  3. Dylan Cease DK $8,900 – Will be chalky, but I don’t love it. This feels like a trap to me and Oakland has been blowing up pitchers left and right the last few weeks.
  4. Dane Dunning DK $7,400 – Good price and matchup against the Twins.  Dunning goes deep into games and the Twins’ high K rate should help Dunning rack up a few more K’s.
  5. Cole Irvin DK $5,000 – Super cheap price tag and I love attacking the Rockies with lefties.  Will likely pair with Strider, so I can still get some decent bats.


  1. Orioles – Top stack of the night. Rutschman, Mountcastle, Henderson, Santander, and Mateo are my favorites.
  2. Phillies – 1-7 all in play with Schwarber, Bryce, Casty, and Turner being the top plays.
  3. Dodgers – Love this stack, but the weather is a big issue here. If you take the risk, Betts, Freeman, Muncy, Peralta, and Kike are who you want.
  4. White Sox – Love this stack today. Anderson, Robert, Jimenez, Vaughn, and Lee all in play.
  5. Mariners – Singer got the best of this lineup last time around, but I don’t see that happening two times in a row. The righties are who we mainly want, like Julio, Suarez, France, and Hernandez. But don’t be afraid to round the stack out with Raleigh, Canzone, or Crawford.
