Friday’s 14 game slate promises plenty of excitement for MLB DFS players, with nine games featuring run totals of eight or higher. With high-scoring matchups likely translating to huge offensive outputs, you’ll want to identify the players who present the best value before entering your MLB DFS lineups. That will help you afford more expensive, less risky options like Brewers OF Christian Yelich or Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon. With FanDuel hosting a $115K Friday MLB Rally and DraftKings running a $250K Friday Frozen Rope that awards $25K to the winner, there are some difficult decisions for MLB DFS players to make. Before you enter these MLB DFS tournaments or any others for Friday evening, you’ll want to see the top MLB DFS picks and lineups from 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 finished with a whopping 185.9 points.
Then on Thursday, he put Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy in his optimal lineup on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Muncy went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, three runs scored, and a walk — returning over 12x value on FanDuel. Anybody following him has seen huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Friday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Friday is Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger at $5,100 on FanDuel and $6,000 on DraftKings. Bellinger is seeing the ball extremely well at the plate, having recorded seven hits, four RBI, seven runs scored and three homers over his last six games. Bellinger has returned over 4x value on FanDuel in four of his last six outings and he has a great chance to produce big numbers again on Friday against Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela, who owns a 5.29 ERA at Coors Field. Lock him in as one of the top overall MLB DFS plays on Friday.
Another pick he loves: Astros second baseman Jose Altuve at $4,000 on FanDuel and $3,900 on DraftKings. Altuve is a complete steal at this price point, which will allow you to load your MLB DFS roster with big-time playmakers. Plus, Altuve has been extremely productive in his most recent outings, recording at least one hit in seven consecutive games.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Friday. 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.
