The experts came out in full force to start the week. We have a big Consensus for you this evening including a few big stacks. In all, there are six stack options but half of the six feature 5 or more hitters. Do you stack or go for the aces on the bump? That will be an interesting questions considering we have Klubot and Mad Max both toeing the rubber this evening. Good luck!

The Weighted Consensus for the MLB is where we publish an in-depth version of 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 8.0.

The MLB Weighted Consensus article will be part of the premium content every day except 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.
