MLB DFS: Christian Yelich and best picks for June 23 DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball lineups
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
MLB DFS players have a full day of action on Sunday, June 23, with some of the league's top pitchers such as Jacob deGrom, Justin Verlander and Cole Hamels among the expected starters. And there are some big-time matchups such as Yankees vs. Astros, Dodgers vs. Rockies and Braves vs. Nationals on the schedule. The key to cashing in on MLB DFS tournaments on sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings is figuring out which stars are worth their price and which overlooked players will surprise. Before locking in any MLB DFS lineups of your own on Sunday, be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He's a DFS pro with almost $2 million in career winnings, and his top MLB DFS picks, player pool, advice and optimal lineups can help you make all the right calls.
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 MLB DFS 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's off to a hot start in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x. 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 over the past weekend, including a top 2 percent finish last Sunday when his DraftKings lineup finished with a whopping 185.9 points.
Then on Friday, he put Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo in his optimal lineup on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result? Choo recorded three hits and stole a base -- returning almost 6x value on FanDuel. Anybody following him has seen some huge returns. Now he's set his sights on Sunday's MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks.
One of the top MLB DFS picks McClure is targeting for Sunday is Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich. The 2018 National League MVP is absolutely rolling again this year, entering play on Sunday in the top two in the National League in almost every major batting category, including average (.349), home runs (29) and RBIs (62). He'll go up against the Reds and pitcher Anthony DeSclafani, who he has a .467 career average against.
Part of McClure's optimal MLB DFS strategy for Sunday includes rostering Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario, who entered the weekend sixth in the American League in home runs (19) and third in RBIs (55). He'll look to exploit a matchup against the struggling Royals and starter Homer Bailey (6-6, 4.82 ERA).
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 huge 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.
So what are the optimal MLB DFS lineups for Sunday? Visit SportsLine right now to see DFS millionaire Mike McClure's complete optimal tournament lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings, and cash in big on MLB DFS.
