MLB DFS players have 16 total games to study on the Tuesday schedule. Game 1 of the Astros vs. White Sox doubleheader is at 4:40 p.m. ET in the afternoon, but most of the MLB DFS action will focus on the other 15 games at 7 p.m. ET or later. Five games, including Nationals vs. Reds (10.5) and Rockies vs. Diamondbacks (12) have an over-under of 10 runs or more, so MLB DFS players will certainly be focusing on those matchups looking for top picks that can provide big numbers for tournament on daily Fantasy sites such as FanDuel or DraftKings. But with such a large player pool available on Tuesday, there are intriguing options all over the place. Before finalizing your own MLB DFS lineups, be sure to check out what Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million as a professional DFS player and his top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday, advice and strategy can help you nail your selections.
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 was all over Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette at $4,000 on FanDuel. The result: Bichette went 4-for-6 with two doubles, an RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base — returning 37 points and over 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 slates.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday is Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant at $3,800 on FanDuel and $4,800 on DraftKings. The 2016 NL MVP has put up solid numbers this year, entering the evening with a .292/23/58 line. And he had one of his better days of the season in his last outing on Sunday, recording two hits, a home run and three RBIs against the Reds — a performance that returned around 8x value on FanDuel. He’ll look to keep it rolling against Jason Vargas and the Phillies on Tuesday.
Part of his optimal MLB DFS strategy includes roster Diamondbacks second baseman Ketel Marte ($4,200 on FanDuel, $5,700 on DraftKings), who is riding a nine-game hitting streak overall and has a whopping .397 average at Coors Field this season. Marte (.317/24/68) ranks in the top 10 in the National League in average, OPS (.939) and slugging percentage (.562), so he’s a must-roster 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.
