Last Updated: 5/19/2017 9:39 AM ET
If you are getting a different line than our projection or you are interested in parlays or other exotics that use different lines, we've got you covered. Simply access the Play Analyzer, which allows you to run the games again while being able to input your own book's lines.

Our MLB simulations are run with any lineups that are already confirmed at the time of these picks being posted, otherwise, they are run using our projected lineups for the day.
