Become a Millionaire: SportsTradex Hosts Their Millionaire Maker Pick'Em Contest
If youâ€™re growing tired of the typical salary-driven daily fantasy sports game, weâ€™ve got an alternative for you. Our friends at SportsTradex are hosting their August Millionaire Maker pickâ€™em contest tomorrow where you, the average Joe with an unhealthy amount of baseball knowledge, have a chance to win one million dollars.
Perhaps youâ€™re new to the pickâ€™em contest at SportsTradex, and if you are, youâ€™re missing out. Each pickâ€™em matchup consists of three players on each side, and your goal is to choose the side that you think will score the most fantasy points. Tomorrowâ€™s contest will have 20 different matchups to choose from, and if you get all 20 correct, youâ€™re an instant millionaire. Even if you miss one, youâ€™re still walking away with up to $50,000.
But the great part about the contest is that, no matter what happens, $20,000 is being paid out. It's guaranteed. Itâ€™s not as though this is only a high-risk game, folks.
You still, however, shouldnâ€™t go into tomorrowâ€™s big game without an idea of how to win. So letâ€™s run through two strategies that can help you bring home some cash.
Winning the Million
Youâ€™ve obviously got an uphill battle to win the million, but that doesnâ€™t mean you shouldnâ€™t go for it. There are a couple of strategies that you may want to incorporate when choosing your matchups tomorrow.
1. Pick the dominant pitcher.
There arenâ€™t a ton of aces on the mound for tomorrowâ€™s games, but pinpointing the hurlers you like most is the top way to win these pickâ€™em matchups. Quite simply, pitchers score the most points, and finding the largest variance between their scores is a surefire way to ensure a victory for the matchup.
The matchups themselves wonâ€™t be posted on SportsTradex until tomorrow morning, but when they are, feel free to take a look at our projections to see where the biggest discrepancies lie.
2. Pick teams, not players
Most daily fantasy players know what stacking is all about â€“ you choose players from the same team in order to maximize your opportunity to win if that team ends up going bonkers. Itâ€™s especially big in baseball, as each player in a lineup is tied to one another in some way â€“ if three guys have a big night, chances are the rest of the lineup will benefit.
And when you stack, you should be looking at opposing pitchers to stack against. In tomorrowâ€™s matchups, a total of 10 probable pitchers have ERAs above 4.00. Target the teams theyâ€™re playing against, and consistently choose those players in the pickâ€™em contest. Itâ€™s a go-big or go-home way of playing, but if youâ€™re wise with your decision-making, it could lead to a lot of cash in your pockets.
