Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings 5/1/16
P- Rich Hill (vs. Houston Astros): $8,900. Rich Hill has been on fire in 2016. In his first 5 starts, he has thrown 26 innings, with a 2.42 ERA, and 37 strikeouts. His strikeout rate in 2016 is what makes him such an attractive choice for daily fantasy. Well, tomorrow is quite possibly the best match-up for Hill when it comes to potential strikeouts. The Houston Astros rank as the worst team in Major League Baseball in the strikeout category. They have struck out a whopping 233 times in 2016. Needless to say, Hill could put up a lot of points in Draft Kings tomorrow.
P- Danny Salazar (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $10,800. Salazar has been quite the workhorse for the Cleveland Indians this year. In his first 4 starts, he has thrown 23 innings, with a 2.35 ERA, giving up only 11 hits, and 26 strikeouts. He has always been known for his impressive strikeout rate, which should be great on Sunday, considering he is facing the Philadelphia Phillies, whom is ranked 21st in that category. He comes at a steep price, but there are many other elite pitchers throwing on Sunday who are more costly and have tougher match-ups. Keep a close eye on this match-up, as there is some potential issues with the weather forecast.

Dutch Hoofdklasse: Saturday, April 30
On day two of round three, Curacao Neptunus hosted HCAW, L&D Amsterdam faced UVV, De Glaskoning Twins took on DSS and Kinheim played against Vaessen Pioniers.
HCAW was no match for Neptunus as was UVV for Pirates. Twins proved to be too strong for DSS and Kinheim clinced a come-back-from-behind victory.
HCAW 0 – 10 Curacao Neptunus
Neptunus took an early 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning.
A six run second made HCAW starting pitcher Sander Helmendach exit the game early. It all started that inning with a fielding error by shortstop Jelle Blaauw, followed by Dwayne Kemp who got on base on a HBP. Benjamin Dille’s single then loaded the bases before Raily Legito walked in a run. Back-to-back ground outs drove in a run each and Rien Vernooi’s double, Shaldimar Daantji’s single and Daniel Fernandes’ single drove in three more runs for Neptunus.
