MLB DFS players have 12 games to evaluate on Monday’s schedule. And with every game beginning at 7:05 p.m. ET or later, the action on the main slate will be heavy, as FanDuel is hosting a $222K Monday MLB Supreme Squeeze and DraftKings is holding an MLB $400K Mega 8’s. Before entering those MLB DFS tournaments or any others and making the call on potential top MLB DFS picks like Christian Yelich, Cody Bellinger, Mike Trout, Mike Soroka or Jose Berrios, you should see what SportsLine’s Mike McClue has to say. He’s a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million in his career, and his MLB DFS optimal lineups, picks and advice can help you nail your rosters on Monday.
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.
McClure’s proprietary MLB projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site. Now, he’s set his sights on Monday and locked in his optimal MLB DFS picks. You can only see them at SportsLine.
For Monday, we can tell you that one of McClure’s top MLB DFS plays is Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson at $3,200 on FanDuel and $4,600 on DraftKings. He’s been slumping recently, but McClure’s model says Monday’s matchup against Giants righty Tyler Beede (0-2, 8.06 ERA, 2.06 WHIP) is a bounce-back spot where he can return plenty of value. Pederson is hitting .244 with 18 home runs on the season against righties and he’s listed at a price that’s a fraction of some of the other top power-hitting outfielders on Monday. That makes him a complete steal.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for Monday also includes targeting Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis ($2,300 on FanDuel, $2,700 on DraftKings), who returned a whopping 15x value on FanDuel on Sunday when he went off for three hits, one home run and three RBIs. He has three multi-hit games in his last six outings and five RBIs during that span as well, making him a strong value as he takes aim at the Rangers, a staff ranked near the bottom of the American League in ERA (4.89).
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 price that won’t break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
