World Cup DFS for July 15: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy soccer picks for France-Croatia
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Before you set your DFS lineups for the 2018 World Cup final on DraftKings or FanDuel on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure is a DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he has crushed his DFS picks this season, cashing on multiple NBA, MLB and PGA tournament lineups in a big way.
And he's been crushing his 2018 World Cup DFS lineups as well thanks to some spot-on picks.
Earlier in the knockout round, McClure rostered Antoine Griezmann of France on both sites. The result: Griezmann scored the insurance goal that lifted France to the 2-0 quarterfinal victory over Uruguay. Anyone who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a profitable day.
For Sunday's 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia, McClure is again going with Griezmann, this time at $16 on FanDuel and $13,000 on DraftKings.
Griezmann is among the top goal-scorers in the 2018 World Cup with three thus far. He likely won't be able to catch England's Harry Kane for the Golden Boot, but he has a prime opportunity to score at least one in the final because he takes penalty kicks for France -- significantly boosting his odds of scoring. He's a reliable finisher who absolutely needs to be in your lineups on Sunday.
McClure is stacking Griezmann with Paul Pogba, who is $11 on FanDuel and $7,900 on DraftKings.
That's because Pogba is an attacking midfielder with nine career international goals. Croatia's defense is worn down from three consecutive games that have gone into extra time. Look for France to find weaknesses and for players like Pogba to put plenty of shots on target with the 2018 World Cup title on the line.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of producing big numbers who has a strong chance of finding the back of the net on Sunday. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
