With the 2020 MLB season still on hold in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, daily Fantasy players have flocked to action in the Korea Baseball Organization. The 10-team KBO, South Korea's top professional league, has five matchups most days, and sites like FanDuel and DraftKings are offering some big-time contests for the early-morning action. For Sunday's slate at 1 a.m. ET, DraftKings is hosting a KBO $100K Bat Flip, while FanDuel has a $25K Sunday KBO Squeeze.
Some of the names in the KBO might be familiar to baseball fans, but some expert advice can go a long way if you're looking to build the perfect KBO DFS lineups. Before finalizing your KBO DFS strategy, be sure to see what SportsLine's Mike McClure has to say. He's a daily Fantasy pro who has won almost $2 million, and his top KBO DFS picks, advice and Sunday KBO DFS player pool can help you nail your rosters for any daily Fantasy baseball contests.
When it comes to daily Fantasy baseball, 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.
His model led him to some massive returns from his MLB DFS picks in 2019, producing daily Fantasy baseball lineups on SportsLine that returned as much as 30x. He also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice last season.
Now, with the MLB season on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, McClure has turned his attention to the KBO. Head to SportsLine now to see his top daily Fantasy baseball picks for May 17.
McClure's top KBO DFS picks for May 17
One of McClure's top KBO DFS picks for Sunday's action is Eui Ji Yang of the NC Dinos. One of the top-hitting catchers in the KBO, he's batting .312 on the season with seven RBIs. The Dinos are off to a hot start this season with a 9-1 record, and they are heavily favored against last-place SK Wyverns, making him a must-roster for this exploitable matchup on Sunday.
McClure is also high on ByungHo Park of the Kiwoom Heroes. His .205 batting average on the season isn't impressive, but he's already hit a couple home runs and six RBIs. And with his price set at an affordable $5,200 on DraftKings and $14 on FanDuel, McClure likes the value of the hard-hitting first baseman who has hit at least 30 home runs in his last six professional seasons.
How to set your KBO DFS lineups for May 17
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Sunday. 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.
