Saturday’s MLB schedule has a whopping 17 games with double-headers between Red Sox vs. Rays and Athletics vs. Rangers adding two games to an already-packed day that features every team in the league. That means MLB DFS players will have plenty of action to take in throughout the day with daily Fantasy sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings running numerous tournaments and cash games for different slates. Before making the call on high-priced pitchers such as Lucas Giolito, Kyle Gibson or Julio Teheran, or figuring out which hitters such as Christian Yelich, Josh Bell or Gary Sanchez you can count on, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a professional DFS player and his top MLB DFS picks, optimal lineups and advice can help you crush your DFS selections for Saturday, June 8.
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 Saturday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks. You can only see them at SportsLine.
For Saturday’s MLB DFS slates, we can tell you McClure is targeting Athletics outfielder Khris Davis at $3,800 on FanDuel and $4,200 on DraftKings. Davis is hitting .242 on the season, but most of his MLB DFS value comes from his power. He can return value in just one swing, and McClure’s model likes his chances to do that because he’s hit 12 home runs in just 49 games played this year. And he brings his .462 slugging percentage to hitter-friendly Globe Life Park in Arlington on Saturday, further helping his chances of going deep.
Part of McClure’s optimal Saturday MLB DFS strategy includes rostering Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager ($3,800 on FanDuel, $4,300 on DraftKings), who enters Saturday’s matchup against the Giants with three consecutive multi-hit games. Despite his hot bat, he’s still significantly cheaper than other shortstops like Trevor Story and Javier Baez, so he’s one of the top MLB DFS value picks you can count on for Saturday.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player with a dream matchup who is set to explode for huge numbers on Saturday. 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.
