Before locking in your MLB DFS lineups for Saturday, be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s a professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings, and his top MLB DFS picks, optimal lineups and advice can help you make all the right calls on Saturday.
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 right before the All-Star break.
Earlier this week, he rostered Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts on FanDuel. The result: Bogaerts had a massive day on Thursday, going 4-for-4 with two home runs and three RBIs — returning almost 50 points and over 12x value. Anybody who followed his advice was well on their way to a huge day. Now, McClure has set his sights on Saturday’s MLB DFS slates. You can see his full roster at SportsLine.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Saturday is Astros third baseman Alex Bregman at $4,000 on FanDuel and $4,400 on DraftKings. Bregman has been one of the top hitters in the American League this season, ranking fifth in home runs (27), sixth in runs scored (78), second in walks (84) and sixth in OPS (.921). He’s taking on the Mariners and starter Marco Gonzales, who he has absolutely crushed with a .545 average and 1.402 OPS against in his career.
Part of his optimal MLB DFS strategy includes rostering Giants second baseman Scooter Gennett ($3,400 on FanDuel, $3,600 on DraftKings). Gennett has appeared in just 22 total games this season due to a groin injury and was traded from Cincinnati to San Francisco before the deadline this week. He got off to a solid start for the Giants, hitting a double in his first game. And he’s in great position to return value as he takes on the Rockies at hitter-friendly Coors Field, where he has a .472 average over the past three years.
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 tournament-winning 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.
