The 2019 MLB All-Star Game will unfold on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. ET from Progressive Field in Cleveland. The Midsummer Classic presents unique challenges for MLB DFS players as they build rosters for single-game tournaments and cash games like the $100K Tuesday MLB All-Star Game Special on FanDuel and the $250K All-Star Showdown on DraftKings. With the best of the best playing for the AL and NL, and players often only logging a few innings of work, expert help will go a long way in helping you make the best MLB DFS picks possible. So before locking in any 2019 MLB All-Star Game DFS lineups of your own, be sure to see the top picks, optimal lineups and advice from SportsLine’s Mike McClure, 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’s proprietary 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 generated a whopping 185.9 points. He also had an optimal lineup on FanDuel that cashed 8x for followers last Friday.
To wrap up the first half of the season, he rostered Indians outfielder Greg Allen on FanDuel at just $2,000. The result: Allen exploded for four hits, including a home run, and two RBis on Sunday, returning a whopping 43.6 points and almost 22x value. Anybody who followed his lead was well on their way to a lucrative day.
Now he’s set his sights on the 2019 MLB All-Star Game DFS slate and locked in his picks.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for the All-Star Game 2019 is Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The most well-rounded player in the game hasn’t disappointed in All-Star Game appearances, recording at least one hit every time he’s appeared. Overall, he’s 7-for-15 in the Midsummer Classic with two home runs, four RBIs and four walks. He’s often pitched around when playing for the Angels, but the National League staff won’t have that luxury on Tuesday, so confidently lock in Trout and look for huge returns.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for the All-Star Game includes rostering Cubs shortstop Javier Baez, who slashed .289/22/62 in the first half of the season and enters the break on a six-game hitting streak, a span that has included four RBIs. He recorded a hit in his only All-Star Game appearance last year.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for tournament-winning 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.
