The MLB schedule for Monday, June 3, has just four games, and MLB DFS main slates will focus on the late games — Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks (9:40 p.m. ET), Phillies vs. Padres (10 p.m. ET) and Astros vs. Mariners (10 p.m. ET). Even with the smaller slate, there are some intriguing options such as Bryce Harper, Cody Bellinger, Rhys Hoskins and Andrew McCutchen available for MLB DFS rosters. And before figuring out which big names will come through, and looking for value picks others might not be thinking about, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a DFS pro, and his top MLB DFS picks, optimal lineups and advice can help you crush your selections for tournaments such as the $200K Swing For the Fences on DraftKings or the $100K Monday MLB Squeeze on FanDuel.
When it comes to MLB, McClure is at his best. Recognized in the book “Fantasy Football (and Baseball) for Smart People: How to Turn Your Hobby into a Fortune” as a top MLB DFS player, McClure rolled through last season, producing multiple lineups that cashed in huge.
He’s off to a hot start in 2019 as well, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments multiple times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. Anybody following him has seen plenty of huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Monday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks. You can only see them at SportsLine.
For Monday’s MLB DFS slates, we can tell you McClure is targeting Alex Bregman at $4,400 on FanDuel and $4,900 on DraftKings. He’s been playing third base and shortstop for the short-handed Astros, but regardless where he’s been defensively, his bat has been a huge factor for Houston.
He leads the American League in home runs (17) and is in the top 10 in several other categories including RBIs (40), walks (41) and slugging percentage (.553). He’ll look to continue to build on those numbers in what is an extremely favorable matchup against the Mariners and starter Wade LeBlanc, who has a sky-high 6.99 ERA.
Part of McClure’s MLB DFS strategy for Monday includes rostering Dodgers outfielder Chris Taylor ($2,400 on FanDuel, $3,400 on DraftKings), who returned almost 9x value on FanDuel on Sunday. Despite his .233 average for the season, he’s hitting .300 with a home run and three RBIs over his last seven games, and he has a .348 career average against Arizona starter Robbie Ray, so you can confidently lock him in at an affordable price on Monday.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Monday. The stars are aligning for him to return huge value and he comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
