Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Aug 18

Welcome back to another week of our Daily DraftKings Picks! We only have about six weeks of baseball left, so it’s time to make our picks count. I didn’t get a chance to do that last Friday as I only entered one $2 contest on the day (I knew I wouldn’t be able to update my lineups before gametime) which ended up being a smart decision.

What makes it so hard to grok is that the Angels had the best offense in baseball...
