MLB DFS for July 15: Best DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball picks
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Before you enter a DFS tournament for MLB action on Sunday, July 15, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has nearly $2 million in career winnings and has cashed huge on tournament rosters for NFL, NBA, NHL, golf and NASCAR in the past year.
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 off to a hot start this season thanks to some spot-on picks.
To close out the week, McClure rostered Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon for just $4,200 on FanDuel and $5,500 on DraftKings The result: Blackmon had a spectacular game, smashing a home run and a double -- returning 24.7 points and nearly 6x value on FanDuel. Anyone who rostered him was well on their way to a profitable night.
For Sunday's loaded MLB DFS slate, McClure loves Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt at $2,700 on FanDuel and $3,600 on DraftKings.
Holt will benefit from a very favorable pitching matchup against Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman, who in his July 4 start was lit up for six earned runs and six hits in less than five innings of work. Roster Holt, who can generate points in multiple stat categories, with confidence on Sunday.
McClure is also eyeing Nationals first baseman Matt Adams, who is $3,900 on DraftKings and $3,200 on FanDuel.
On Saturday, batting fifth behind slugger Bryce Harper, Adams hit a two-run bomb off Zack Wheeler. Adams has the potential to be a big run-producer on Sunday against Mets starter Corey Oswalt, who enters play with an unwieldy 6.75 ERA.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up explosive numbers on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings, all for a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
