MLB DFS for June 24: 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, June 24, 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 last week, McClure rostered Indians first baseman Yonder Alonso for $3,800 on DraftKings. The result: Alonso exploded for a grand slam and a single -- returning 23 points and 6x value on DraftKings. Anyone who rostered him was well on their way to a profitable day.
For Sunday's loaded MLB DFS slate, McClure loves Indians outfielder Brandon Guyer at $2,100 on FanDuel and $3,000 on DraftKings.
Guyer will benefit from a favorable pitching matchup against Tigers starter Matthew Boyd, who allowed five earned runs, six hits and three walks in only four innings of work during a 9-5 loss to the Reds in his last start. Roster Guyer with confidence on Sunday.
McClure is stacking Guyer with Indians first baseman Edwin Encarnacion, who is $3,900 on DraftKings and $4,800 on FanDuel.
On Saturday, batting clean-up behind slugger Jose Ramirez, Encarnacion knocked in a run and scored on a hit by Guyer. Encarnacion has the potential to be a big run producer on Sunday against Detroit, whose 4.35 ERA is the ninth-worst in baseball.
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.
So who is DFS pro Mike McClure putting in his optimal lineup on Sunday? Visit SportsLine now to see the full optimal tournament lineups for Sunday from a professional DFS player who has nearly $2 million in career winnings and has crushed his DFS picks in multiple sports.
