MLB DFS for Oct. 20: Best DraftKings and FanDuel daily Fantasy Baseball picks for Dodgers-Brewers, NLCS Game 7
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
The National League pennant will be on the line on Saturday night as the Milwaukee Brewers take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 of the NLCS. First pitch is scheduled for 8:09 p.m. ET, and in addition to being the culmination of an exciting series with a trip to the World Series on the line, there will also be thousands of dollars up for grabs in MLB DFS tournaments and cash games. FanDuel has a $55,000 prize pool for their Game 7 Special, while DraftKings is putting $60,000 on the line for their Elimination Game Special. But before you set your MLB DFS lineups, you'll want to see Mike McClure's MLB DFS picks for Brewers vs. Dodgers.
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, already producing multiple tournament lineups that have won big thanks to some spot-on picks.
In Game 6 of the NLCS on Friday, McClure rostered Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar on FanDuel. The result? Aguilar went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored, three RBI and a walk. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.
For Saturday night's single-game slate featuring Game 7 of the NLCS between the Dodgers and Brewers, McClure is banking on Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger. He has absolutely hammered scheduled Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin in his career. In 16 plate appearances, Bellinger is slashing .357/.438/.939 with two home runs against Chacin.
McClure also likes Brewers third baseman Mike Moustakas.
Moustakas doesn't have a lot of history against expected Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, but he's done well against him the couple times he has seen him. Moustakas has three hits in six at-bats against Buehler and the left-hander has an OPS that is nearly 80 points higher against right-handed pitching this season.
McClure is also targeting a player with a dream matchup on Saturday. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points, and he comes at a great price. The pick could be the difference between cashing in or going home with nothing.
So, what are the optimal MLB DFS tournament lineups for Saturday's playoff action? Visit SportsLine now to see DFS millionaire Mike McClure's complete optimal tournament lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel.
