MLB DFS: Aaron Judge and top picks for March 31 DraftKings and FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball lineups
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Sunday promises plenty of excitement for MLB DFS players, with 10 games featuring an over-under of eight or more. With high-scoring matchups likely translating to huge offensive outputs, you'll want to identify the players who present the best value before entering your MLB DFS lineups. That will help you afford more expensive, less risky options like Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich and Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado. With FanDuel hosting a $125K Sunday MLB Monster and DraftKings running a $150K Rally Cap that awards $25K to the winner, there are plenty of difficult decisions for MLB DFS players to make. Before you enter these MLB DFS tournaments or any others on Sunday, you'll want to see the top MLB DFS picks and lineups from SportsLine's Mike McClure.
McClure is a DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings. And 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 rolled through the 2018 season, producing multiple lineups that cashed in huge.
On Saturday, McClure was all over Cubs OF Kyle Schwarber at $3,300 on FanDuel. The result: Schwarber went 3-for-5 with a home run, one run scored and two RBIs, returning over 8x value. Anybody who followed his advice was well on their way to a big day.
For Sunday, we can tell you McClure is high on Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge at $5,100 on FanDuel and $5,400 on DraftKings. Judge was a tough out on Opening Day, going 2-for-3 with two walks and three runs scored in Thursday's win over Baltimore. Now, he gets a juicy matchup against Orioles starting pitcher Dylan Bundy, who finished last season with a 5.45 ERA. Lock in Judge as one of the top MLB DFS picks for Sunday.
McClure's optimal MLB DFS strategy also involves rostering Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi at $4,200 on FanDuel and $4,900 on DraftKings. Mondesi is off to a hot start this season, having recorded at least one hit, run, and RBI in every game this season. On Sunday, he gets a mouthwatering matchup against White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito, who has a career ERA of 5.48. Plus, Giolito gave up at least four earned runs in four of his last five starts last season.
McClure is also targeting a player with a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to go for 20, even 30 points on DraftKings and FanDuel, and he comes at a price that won't break the bank. The pick could be the difference between cashing big or going home with nothing.
