FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Tuesday 10/8/19

As heavy favorites over the Rays in Game 4, will the Astros wrap up their series on Tuesday night?

With the Yankees completing a sweep of the Twins on Monday, we have a single-game slate on our hands in the remaining American League series between the Rays and Astros. Tampa Bay is rolling with a bullpen game as they try to avoid elimination against Justin Verlander. As you might expect, Houston is heavily favored to win this one, and most of the bets and money are leaning their way, per oddsFire.

For those unfamiliar with the single-game daily fantasy baseball format, scoring is identical to its full roster cousin, except you only roster hitters and lineups consist of five flex spots. The one twist? One of the five roster spots is your designated "MVP," who receives 2-times his total fantasy points, along with an "All-Star" slot that gets 1.5-times the points. Naturally, it's crucial that you choose your MVP and All-Star carefully if you want to be at the top of the leaderboards when it's all said and done.

On that note, let's highlight some of the top options for today's FanDuel single-game slate.
