Fifteen games are on the MLB schedule for Tuesday evening, highlighted by Zack Greinke making his debut for the Astros as they host the Rockies at 8:10 p.m. ET. Braves vs. Twins, a battle of division leaders, Cubs vs. Athletics and Dodgers vs. Cardinals are among the other intriguing matchups with plenty of implications for the MLB playoff picture. MLB DFS players, however, will be more interested in the individual battles as they make the call on players like Charlie Blackmon, DJ LeMahieu, Francisco Lindor and Zack Wheeler this evening on daily Fantasy sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings. Before finalizing your own MLB DFS lineups, be sure to see what DFS pro Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career and his top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday, advice and player pool can help you navigate this loaded schedule.
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 his top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday is 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 with 22.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLD DFS strategy for Tuesday includes rostering Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius at $3,500 on FanDuel and $5,000 on DraftKings. Gregorius has done most of his damage away from Yankee Stadium this year, hitting .333 with five of his seven home runs on the road. He’ll be at Camden Yards on Tuesday to take on the Orioles, a team with the worst ERA in all of baseball (5.59). Baltimore has also given up a whopping 223 home runs total on the season, so Gregorius has a great chance to return value with just one swing of the bat on Tuesday.
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.
