MLB DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on FanDuel or DraftKings for Wednesday’s eight-game slate have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in Freddie Freeman, Christian Yelich or Marcell Ozuna is a great way to guarantee production, but all three come with a hefty price tag on both sites. They’ll eat up a large portion of your MLB DFS salary cap right off the bat, so making the right call on the value of players such as them will be critical when evaluating tonight’s MLB DFS slate. And before you enter an MLB DFS tournament like the $125K Wednesday MLB Rally on FanDuel or the $200K Wednesday Web Gem on DraftKings, first be sure to check in with Mike McClure. He’s a professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings and his top picks, optimal lineups and MLB DFS advice can help you build the perfect roster.
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 Wednesday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks. You can only see them at SportsLine.
For Wednesday, we can tell you McClure is eyeing Twins outfielder Nelson Cruz at $3,600 on FanDuel and $4,800 on DraftKings. A veteran power bat who is still piling up home runs at age 38, Cruz has been red hot in his most recent outings. He’s hit a home run in four of his last five games, while recording seven hits, six RBIs and five runs scored during that span. He’s returned over 5x value on FanDuel in four of his last five outings, and he’ll look to exploit a favorable matchup against Seattle’s starting pitcher Tommy Milone. Milone has given up at least one home run in every start this season, so Cruz has a great chance to go deep and return value on Wednesday’s slate.
Part of his optimal MLB DFS strategy for Wednesday includes stacking Cruz with Twins C/1B C.J. Cron ($3,600 on FanDuel, $4,500 on DraftKings), who’s recorded at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games. Cron has hit .333/.397/.596 over his last 14 contests and he has a great chance to produce big numbers again on Wednesday against the Mariners, who’ve given up 46 runs to Minnesota in their past five meetings. He’s a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in for Wednesday’s slate.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Wednesday. 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.
