MLB DFS: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks, strategy for June 19, 2021

News Post || News Now:

The 2021 MLB season is rapidly approaching the halfway point and MLB daily Fantasy players are feeling more confident in their selections with a larger sample size to base their decisions on. Shohei Ohtani went yard twice on Friday to bring his season-long home run total to 21, and the two-way superstar is making a compelling case for MVP. He should also be in serious consideration for your MLB DFS picks on Saturday with four home runs in his last four games.

Meanwhile, Reds outfielder Jesse Winker continues to be one of the most pleasant surprises in baseball as he enters Saturday having hit safely in 14 of his last 15 games. But does Winker have a matchup you can exploit tonight, and who else in the MLB DFS player pool should you be targeting? Before locking in any MLB DFS lineups for Saturday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a daily Fantasy pro who has won almost $2 million in his career. And when it comes to daily Fantasy baseball, 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’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site.

On Friday, McClure recommended Angels pitcher Alex Cobb as one of his top options on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Cobb threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings and struck out eight on his way to a win over the Tigers, putting up 47 points on FanDuel in the process. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, with the 2021 MLB season rolling on Saturday, McClure has locked in his top MLB daily Fantasy picks. Head to SportsLine now to see them

McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for June 19, 2021 

One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Saturday is Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts at $5,700 on DraftKings and $4,200 on FanDuel. It hasn’t exactly been a banner year statistically for the 2018 AL MVP and last season’s NL MVP runner-up, as Betts is slashing .251/.366/.450.

However, Betts has a .935 OPS with two homers and four RBIs over the last seven days and Diamondbacks starter Matt Peacock has struggled immensely this season. The 27-year-old right-hander carries a 5.26 ERA into Saturday’s start and the Diamondbacks are already a staggering 31 games under .500 with a run differential of -100.

Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy also includes rostering Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. at $6,100 on DraftKings and $4,700 on FanDuel. With five home runs in his last seven games, Tatis enters Saturday with 22 home runs and 50 RBIs.

Both totals lead the National League and he also leads the league in slugging (.677) and OPS (1.036). Tatis had a .591 OPS through the first two weeks of the season but had a staggering 1.264 OPS in May and has a 1.361 OPS over the last week with the five dingers and 11 RBIs.

How to set your MLB DFS lineups for June 19, 2021 

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Saturday. The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value and he comes at a price that won’t break the bank. You can only see who it is here.
