Today’s Consensus does not have near the volume of last night’s; however, it still offers up some solid values and stacks. There are ten games on the evening slate tonight. Good luck!

The Weighted Consensus for the MLB is where we publish a more in-depth version of the MLB Consensus rankings every day that considers each expert’s current DailyOverlay score to generate a Weighted Consensus ranking. To calculate the Weighted Rank Score, each expert’s DailyOverlay score for hitters and pitchers is weighted on a sliding scale from 1 to 5 with the top expert in the current standings being weighted with a five while the last place expert is weighted with a one. This method gives the higher rated expert’s picks more weight when compiling the overall player rankings for the day. We will include all players that generate a Rank Score of at least 6.0.

As a reminder, most of our MLB content will be part of our premium membership. Now is a great time to sign up for our premium content at only $9.99 per month so you are all set for the MLB season, in addition to getting our fantastic Golf content.

Scroll to the bottom of the article for the “Top Stacks” section that lists out the teams with the most hitters being recommended by the experts today. Also, be sure to check each team’s lineup when it is released and watch the weather before finalizing your lineups.

Let’s play ball!
