MLB DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on FanDuel or DraftKings for Wednesday’s slate have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in Mike Trout, Christian Yelich or Anthony Rendon 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 $115K Wednesday MLB Rally on FanDuel or the $250K 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, 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 Tuesday, he put Indians shortstop Mike Freeman in his optimal lineup on FanDuel. The result: Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run — returning 9x value. Anybody following him has seen huge returns. Now, he’s set his sights on Wednesday’s slate and locked in his MLB DFS picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Wednesday is Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper at $4,100 on FanDuel and $4,600 on DraftKings. Harper enters Wednesday’s matchup against the Mets having recorded a hit in five of his last six games. He’s also been extremely patient at the plate, recording a walk in three of his last four outings, which will give Harper plenty of opportunities to score runs — a valuable DFS asset. Lock him in your MLB DFS lineups and look for a big return against New York on Wednesday night.
Another pick he loves: Tigers outfielder Nicholas Castellanos at $2,900 on FanDuel and $3,700 on DraftKings. Castellanos comes at an extremely affordable price on Wednesday, which will allow you to load your MLB DFS roster with big-time playmakers. Plus, Castellanos, who’s recorded at least one hit in eight of his last nine games, gets an ideal matchup against Rangers starting pitcher Mike Minor, who enters Wednesday’s tilt with a 6.63 ERA in two career starts and six relief appearances against Detroit. Castellanos is 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 price that won’t break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
