MLB DFS players have a full day of action to evaluate on Saturday, June 15, with first pitch of Rays vs. Angels coming at 1 p.m. ET, followed by 14 other games that begin at 4:05 p.m. ET or later. Daily Fantasy sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings have tournaments and cash games for a variety of slates throughout the day such as the $120K Perfect Game on on DraftKings or the $100K Saturday Squeeze on FanDuel. Cashing in contests such as these means making all the right calls on top MLB DFS picks such as Christian Yelich Alex Bregman, Chris Sale and Stephen Strasburg, and finding overlooked value picks that make the salary cap numbers work. And before locking in any MLB DFS lineups of your own for Saturday, 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 picks, optimal lineups and advice can help you crush your selections on Saturday.
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, we can tell you McClure is targeting Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado at $4,800 on FanDuel and $5,500 on DraftKings. Arenado is putting together yet another All Star-Caliber season as he enters play on Saturday in the top 10 in the National League in batting average (.326), RBIs (57), runs scored (50) and slugging percentage (.592). His average jumps to .383 and his slugging percentage goes up to .664 at Coors Field, which is where the Rockies will take on the Padres on Saturday.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for Saturday includes rostering Dodgers outfielder Alex Verdugo ($2,700 on FanDuel, $3,700 on DraftKings), who is hitting .316 over his last seven games. He’s already reached base four times in this series against against the Cubs and has six hits in his last three games overall, so he has a great chance to return value at a very affordable price on Saturday.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player 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.
