Finding the right matchup to exploit in MLB DFS tournaments can be the difference between winning big or going home with nothing. Monday’s main MLB DFS slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, which features seven games, features contests with big-time prizes like the $250K Swing for the Fences on DraftKings and $120K MLB Rally on FanDuel. Whether it’s an outfielder with a favorable matchup or a pitcher who’s capable of putting up a monster stat line, finding the right MLB DFS value picks is key. But before you lock in your MLB DFS lineups, you’ll want to see the top MLB DFS picks and lineups from SportsLine’s Mike McClure. He’s a professional DFS player who has won almost $2 million in his career.
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, 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 two weekends ago, which included a top 2 percent finish when his DraftKings lineup scored a whopping 185.9 points.
On Sunday, he put Braves third baseman Josh Donaldson in his optimal lineup on FanDuel. The result: Donaldson recorded two hits, a home run and an RBI — returning over 7x value. Anybody following him has seen huge returns. Now, he’s set his sights on Monday slate and locked in his MLB DFS picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Monday is Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo at $3,900 on FanDuel and $4,600 on DraftKings. Rizzo enters Monday’s matchup against the Braves having recorded a hit in three of his last four games. He’s also been patient at the plate, recording a walk in four of his last six outings, which gives him plenty of opportunities to score runs, a valuable DFS asset. He’s a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your MLB DFS lineups and look for a big return on Monday.
McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy also involves rostering Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge at $4,300 on FanDuel and $5,000 on DraftKings. Judge and the Yankees have an enticing matchup against Rays starter Aaron Sanchez, who’s given up 21 hits, 19 earned runs and five homers in his last three starts. Lock Judge in as one of the top overall plays on Monday.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for tournament-winning 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.
