MLB DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on FanDuel or DraftKings for Wednesday’s slate have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in Mookie Betts, Ketel Marte or George Springer is a great way to guarantee production, but all three come with a hefty price tag on both sites. They’ll eat up a large portion of your MLB DFS salary cap right off the bat, so making the right call on the value of players such as them will be critical when evaluating tonight’s MLB DFS slate. And before you enter an MLB DFS tournament like the $125K Wednesday MLB Rally on FanDuel or the $200K Wednesday Web Gem on DraftKings, first be sure to check in with Mike McClure. He’s a professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings and his top picks, optimal lineups and MLB DFS advice can help you build the perfect roster.
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 got off to a hot start in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x in the first half of the season. 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 in mid-June, 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 on the last Friday before the All-Star break.
Then on Tuesday, he rostered Giants outfielder Alex Dickerson at $3,800 on FanDuel. The result: Dickerson went 4-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored — returning over 28 points and 7x value. Anybody who followed his advice was well on their way to a huge day. Now McClure has set his sights on Wednesday’s MLB DFS slates.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Wednesday is Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger at $4,800 on FanDuel and $5,800 on DraftKings. Bellinger is seeing the ball extremely well at the plate, having recorded eight hits, six RBIs, seven runs scored and four homers over his last five games. Bellinger has returned over 4x value on FanDuel in three of his last four outings and he has a great chance to produce big numbers again on Wednesday against Phillies starter Nick Pivetta, who has a 6.99 ERA in his last five starts. Lock him in as one of the top overall MLB DFS plays on Wednesday.
Another pick he loves: Nationals outfielder Juan Soto at $4,000 on FanDuel and $5,500 on DraftKings. Soto is hitting .342 with three homers, nine RBIs and eight runs scored in July and he has a great chance to produce big numbers again on Wednesday against the Orioles, who have an accumulative team ERA of 5.70, which ranks dead last in the league.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Wednesday. 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.
