It’s a packed day of action for MLB DFS players with 16 total games on the MLB schedule. All but one of them begins after 7 p.m. ET. The evening main slate, especially, should draw a ton of interest with DraftKings running a $400K Grand Slam and FanDuel hosting a $300K Tuesday MLB Supreme Squeeze. Clayton Kershaw, Jose Berrios and Jon Lester are some of the big names projected to be on the hill this evening, while top-priced hitters include Nelson Cruz, Christian Yelich, Mike Trout and Cody Bellinger. And before making the call on these players or any others for Tuesday’s action, first be sure to see the optimal MLB DFS lineups from Mike McClure. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a DFS pro and his top picks, advice and player pool can help you build the perfect lineup on Tuesday.
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.
Then on Monday, he said Yelich was worth it at $4,600 on FanDuel. The result: Yelich exploded for a 4-for-5 day with two home runs — returning over 40 points and 9x value. Anybody who followed his advice was well on their way to a huge day. Now, McClure has set his sights on Tuesday’s MLB DFS slates. You can see his full roster at SportsLine.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday is Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge at $4,100 on FanDuel and $4,900 on DraftKings. The power-hitting right fielder has 12 home runs in just 57 games played this season and he enters play on Tuesday riding a six-game hitting streak, helping him to a .333 average in August. He’s in a great position to return value against the Orioles, a team with the worst ERA in the league.
Part of his optimal MLB DFS strategy includes rostering Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez ($3,500 on FanDuel, $4,800 on DraftKings), who is riding an impressive five-game extra-base hit streak entering play this evening. He’ll look to exploit a matchup against the Rangers and starter Ariel Jurado, who has a 4.92 season-long ERA and has given up 16 earned runs in his last 20 innings pitched. Ramirez is also strong on the basepaths, ranking fifth in the American League in stolen bases on the season.
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 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.
