Fifteen games are on the MLB schedule for Sunday, July 7. The action gets underway just after 1 p.m. ET, with the final start time coming at 4:10 p.m. ET as teams get set to head into the All-Star Break. FanDuel is offering a $125K Sunday MLB Squeeze, while DraftKings is hosting a $200K Medium 7th Inning Stretch. And before making the call on big names such as Christian Yelich, Josh Bell, Mike Trout or Freddie Freeman in MLB DFS tournament on Sunday, first check out what Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a professional DFS player, and his top MLB DFS picks, player pool, advice and optimal lineups can help you crush your selections on Sunday.
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.
On Friday, he put Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar in his optimal lineup on FanDuel at just $2,500. The result: Aguilar exploded for two hits, including a home run, and three RBIs — returning almost 30 points and over 11x value. That pick helped McClure’s FanDuel optimal lineup return 8x for followers on Friday. Now he’s set his sights on Sunday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Sunday is Astros second baseman Jose Altuve at $3,600 on FanDuel and $3,900 on DraftKings. The 2017 MVP has seen his numbers (.259/10/25) fall this season, but he’s still capable of big DFS returns, like when he went off for almost 8x value on FanDuel against the Rockies earlier this week. And Altuve has crushed left-handed pitching this year (.348 average/1.131 OPS), which is what he’ll see from Angels starter Jose Suarez (5.40 ERA) on Sunday.
Part of his optimal MLB DFS strategy for Sunday includes rostering Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, who went off for over 25 points and around 6x value on FanDuel in the opener of Boston’s series against Detroit this weekend. Betts (.268/13/38) entered the weekend with at least one hit in eight of his last 10 games, a span that includes three multi-hit games. Confidently lock him in as a top MLB DFS pick for Sunday as he looks to exploit a matchup against the Tigers and struggling starter Gregory Soto (0-2, 8.06 ERA).
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Sunday. 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.
