With four games on the MLB DFS main slate on Thursday, August 23, there are plenty of options, like the $200,000 Ridiculous Rally on FanDuel and the $200,000 Extra Inning on DraftKings. Before setting your MLB DFS lineups, you’ll want to see the top MLB DFS picks and lineups from Mike McClure. He’s a predictive data engineer and professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings who has been 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.
On Wednesday, McClure called Cubs second baseman Javier Baez a “core” target for his matchup against the Tigers. The result: Baez went off for a home run and three RBIs — returning 28.7 points on FanDuel and almost 8x value for owners. Anyone who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a profitable day.- Advertisement -
For Thursday’s main slate, McClure is again going with Baez, this time at $3,900 on FanDuel and $4,700 on DraftKings.
Baez has been red hot recently, recording six hits in his last three games. He leads the National League in RBIs with 92 and is fifth with 20 stolen bases, so he’s a top MLB DFS pick you should be all over for Thursday.
McClure is stacking him with first baseman Anthony Rizzo at $4,100 on FanDuel and $4,700 on DraftKings.
Rizzo is another big bat (.267/20/80) who hit a home run on Wednesday to help the Cubs break out of their offensive slump with eight runs against the Tigers. And both are primed to go deep Thursday against Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani, who has given up 15 home runs in 74 innings this season.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up explosive numbers on Thursday. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings, and he comes at 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.
