We have a split slate on Thursday with a five-game afternoon slate and a five-game night slate. Here is the Industry Expert Consensus for the afternoon slate that is pretty limited with pitching options (just wait the night slate might be worse). Of course, when we have a lot of bad pitchers on the mound it also opens up a lot of good hitter stack opportunities and this afternoon is no different including three games with Vegas run totals over 10. So, there should be plenty of fireworks this afternoon.

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 experts 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.

The MLB Weighted Consensus article will be part of the premium content every day expect Wednesday and the weekend this season. Sign up now for a FREE 7-day trial so you don’t miss any of the content here at DailyOverlay.
