Some survivor baseball leagues start this coming Monday, April 8, as MLB Opening Day fell on a Thursday this year. We still came out with Opening Week picks for the extended Week 1 and went 2-for-3 with those selections. The New York Yankees and San Diego Padres pulled off over-.500 weeks, and we're deeply sorry if you took the Toronto Blue Jays, who had a rough 3-8 start to the season.

As your friends at The Duel want to make sure you advance as far as you possibly can, we will come out with weekly picks to give you some info on potential picks for each week on the 2019 MLB season. And if you aren't sure how survivor baseball works, click here for a simple rundown of how you can do it.

Here are three survivor baseball picks for Week 2 of the MLB season.

The Chicago Cubs are off to a slow start this season, but that could be in part due to the fact that they haven't yet played a home game. The Cubs get six home contests this week, with three against the Pittsburgh Pirates and three versus the Los Angeles Angels. Six straight home games should do the Cubs some good and lead to at least three wins this week.

The New York Mets are lined up to have a positive Week 2, with Jacob deGrom having two starts this week. The Mets do have a four-game series at Atlanta, but with deGrom and Noah Syndergaard starting off the week with a two-game home set against the Twins, the Metropolitans should be in a good spot to at least split their six games this week.

The Philadelphia Phillies are off to a great start to the Bryce Harper era, going 6-2 through their first three series of the season. With six games this week, including three at home versus the Nationals, Philadelphia will luckily miss Max Scherzer and Patrick Corbin's next turn in the rotation. After that three-game set, the Phillies head to Miami to take on the cellar-dwelling Marlins to close out the week. At least a split of this week's six contests should be doable for a team vying for the NL East title this season.

New customers will get 40/1 on any of the Final Four teams to win the tournament.
