The Wednesday, June 19 MLB schedule features 16 games, with a Nationals vs. Phillies double-header accounting for the extra matchup. Five games begin at 3:40 p.m. ET or earlier, with the rest at 6:40 p.m. ET or later. That means MLB DFS players will have multiple slates throughout the day to study and some big-time players such as Blake Snell, Charlie Blackmon, Mike Trout and Cody Bellinger available as potential top MLB DFS picks. Before entering an MLB DFS tournament such as the $115K Wednesday MLB Rally on FanDuel or the $250K Wednesday Web Gem on DraftKings, first see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million in career, and his top MLB DFS lineups, stacks, advice and player pool can help you crush all your selections for Wednesday’s slates.
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’s proprietary MLB DFS 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.
He’s off to a hot start in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. He cashed huge in three consecutive tournaments over the past weekend, including a top 2 percent finish on Sunday when his DraftKings lineup finished with a whopping 185.9 points.
Then on Tuesday, he put Jason Kipnis in his optimal lineups on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result? Kipnis recorded two hits, three RBIs, a run and a walk — returning over 9x value on FanDuel. Anybody following him has seen some huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Wednesday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting Wednesday is Angels outfielder Justin Upton at $3,800 on FanDuel and $4,100 on DraftKings. Upton (toe) returned from the injured list this week and quickly provided a lift for the Angels, recording two hits, including a home run, on Monday against Toronto. He’ll look to go deep again on Wednesday against the Blue Jays and starter Aaron Sanchez (3-8, 5.04 ERA).
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for Wednesday includes rostering Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor ($4,100 on FanDuel, $5,500 on DraftKings), who has nine hits over his last seven games. And once he gets on, he can get over, entering play on Wednesday in the top 10 in the American League in steals (9) on the season. McClure’s model indicates Lindor is a huge value on Wednesday against a struggling Texas Rangers staff and starter Joe Palumbo, who gave up four earned runs in as many innings in his only action of the season.
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 price that won’t break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
