MLB DFS: Christian Yelich and best picks for September 15 DraftKings and FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball lineups
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
There are plenty of opportunities to cash in on MLB DFS Saturday evening with daily Fantasy sports sites hosting multiple tournaments such as the $60,000 MLB Rally on FanDuel or the $150,000 Extra Inning on DraftKings as the MLB pennant races enter the final weeks. Before entering these or any other MLB DFS tournaments on Saturday, Sept. 15, check out the top MLB DFS picks and optimal lineups from Mike McClure. He's a professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings and a predictive data engineer at SportsLine.
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 is rolling this season thanks to some spot-on MLB DFS picks.
On Friday, McClure advised DFS players to roster Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario at just $3,200 on FanDuel. The result? He went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs -- returning 28.2 points on FanDuel and almost 9x value for owners. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.
For Saturday's main slate, McClure is banking on Angeles outfielder Kole Calhoun at $2,900 on FanDuel and $3,700 on DraftKings. He has 18 home runs on the season and has a great chance to return value against the Mariners and starter Erasmo Ramirez (5.31 ERA).
Another pick he loves: Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich at $4,300 on FanDuel and $5,600 on DraftKings, who has returned almost 25 points on FanDuel in his last two outings.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up explosive numbers on Saturday because of a dream matchup. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings, and he comes at an extremely affordable price. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
