There are plenty of storylines for MLB DFS players to navigate on Saturday, June 29, with all 30 teams in action. Yankees vs. Red Sox has the first pitch of the day at 1:10 p.m. ET from London. Manager Mickey Callaway, meanwhile, could be running out of chances as he leads the struggling Mets against the Braves at 4:10 p.m. ET. And a trio of World Series contenders — Dodgers, Astros and Brewers — will take the stage at 8:15 p.m. ET with Los Angeles playing the Rockies, Houston taking on the Mariners and Milwaukee battling the Pirates. Before entering any kind of MLB DFS tournament on a site such as FanDuel or DraftKings for Saturday’s action, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s a DFS pro with almost $2 million in career winnings, and his top MLB DFS picks, optimal lineups, advice and player pool can help you make all the right calls.
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 Friday, he put Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy in his optimal lineup on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Muncy went 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBIs — returning nearly 40 points and over 9x value on FanDuel. Anybody following him has seen huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Saturday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Saturday is Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson $4,100 on FanDuel and $5,000 on DraftKings. Pederson, a lefty, thrives against right-handed pitching, which is what he’ll see from Colorado starter Jon Gray on Saturday. Pederson has hit all 20 of his home runs this season against righties, and he also has two career homers against Gray, so you can lock him in with confidence.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for Saturday includes stacking Pederson with Cody Bellinger ($5,100 on FanDuel, $5,800 on DraftKings) as the hot-hitting Dodgers look to continue to pile on the runs at Coors Field. Los Angeles has already scored 21 runs through two games in this series, and Bellinger has had a hand in several of those already. He’s hit a home run and scored three times. The National League All-Star starting outfielder is slashing .350/27/64 on the season, and with numbers like those hitting at Coors, there’s a tremendous chance that he’ll return huge value.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Saturday. 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.
