FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Helper: Friday 10/25/19

Already down two games in the series, will Zack Greinke be able to help the Astros get one back from the Nationals in Game 3?

With the Washington Nationals impressively taking a 2-0 series lead on the road -- besting both Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander -- the Houston Astros are arguably already in a "must-win" situation to avoid going down three games tonight. Friday's pitching matchup pits Zack Greinke against Anibal Sanchez, with an over/under of 8.0 runs and the Astros coming in as -136 road favorites. According to OddsFire, 65% of the bets and 70% of the money are for Houston.

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.
