Fifteen games are on the MLB schedule for Tuesday evening, and it’s a loaded main slate for MLB DFS players with every single game beginning at 7 p.m. ET or later. There’s a huge matchup in the National League East as the Braves take on the Phillies in a battle of postseason contenders. Elsewhere, the Astros travel to Coors Field to take on the Colorado in a matchup that should see plenty of offense, especially with Trevor Story (thumb) returning from the injured list. Before locking in any kind of MLB DFS lineup on a site such as FanDuel or DraftKings, first be sure to check in with Mike McClure. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a DFS pro, and his top MLB DFS picks, optimal lineups and advice can help you make all the right calls on Tuesday, July 2.
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 three weekends ago, which included a top 2 percent finish when his DraftKings lineup finished with a whopping 185.9 points.
Then on Monday, he put Pirates third baseman Colin Moran in his optimal lineup on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: He went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBIs — returning almost 13x value on FanDuel. Anybody following him has seen huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Tuesday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Tuesday is Astros outfielder Michael Brantley at $4,200 on FanDuel and $4,500 on DraftKings. The American League All-Star enters play on Tuesday with a .313 batting average, good for sixth in the league. And he has at least one hit in eight of his last 10 games. He’ll look to take advantage of a matchup at hitter-friendly Coors Field on Tuesday.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for Tuesday includes rostering Rockies first baseman Daniel Murphy at $3,400 on FanDuel and $4,600 on DraftKings. Murphy (.282/6/42) has at least one hit in six of his last seven games, a span than includes three multi-hit games. He’ll look to exploit a matchup against unproven Houston starter Jose Urquidy on Tuesday.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Tuesday. 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.
