The 2019 MLB Playoffs continue on Saturday with Game 2 of the NLCS between the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals and Game 1 of the ALCS between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros. Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning of a 2-0 win for the Nationals in the first game of the NLCS while Miles Mikolas also threw six solid innings of one-run ball with seven strikeouts. On Saturday, pitching options will include Adam Wainwright, Max Scherzer, Zack Greinke and Masahiro Tanaka for MLB DFS players looking to win big on FanDuel and Draftkings. All four are capable of anchoring MLB DFS lineups when they’re at their best, but they’ll have to outwit playoff lineups that are looking to keep their teams alive with the World Series just around the corner. So before you make any Saturday MLB DFS picks, be sure to check out the optimal MLB DFS strategy from daily Fantasy millionaire Mike McClure first.
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’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.
He’s crushed his MLB DFS picks in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x. He also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice in the first half of the season. He cashed huge in three consecutive tournaments in mid-June, which included a top 2 percent finish when his DraftKings lineup generated a whopping 185.9 points. He also had an optimal lineup on FanDuel that cashed 8x for followers the Friday before the All-Star break. Since then, he’s had multiple lineups cash between 5x and 10x.
And on Thursday, his optimal lineup on DraftKings for Astros vs. Rays, Game 5, returned a massive 30x value. Anyone who has followed McClure has seen some huge returns. Now, McClure has set his sights on Friday’s NL Championship Series 2019 Game 1 between the Cardinals and Nationals.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Saturday is Wainwright at $8,000 on FanDuel and $6,100 on DraftKings. Wainwright threw 7.2 innings of shutout ball against the Braves in his first postseason start of the year, allowing just four hits and striking out eight despite the Cardinals losing the game 3-1. He’s now given up one run or fewer over at least six innings in five of his last seven starts and Nationals hitters have a career OPS of just .738 against Wainwright in their collective careers.
McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy Saturday also involves rostering Houston Astros outfielder Yordan Alvarez ($3,800 on FanDuel, $4,700 on DraftKings). After posting an astronomical 1.067 OPS and hitting 27 home runs in just 313 at-bats since his June call-up, Alvarez went 6-for-19 in his first-ever playoff series against the Rays and posted a solid .824 OPS with three doubles. Alvarez posted a mind-blowing 1.289 OPS against the Yankees this season with three home runs in 18 at-bats and he’ll look to continue punishing the Yankees on Saturday at home.
McClure is also targeting a player that is undervalued in DFS 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. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
So what are the optimal MLB DFS lineups for the League Championship Series games on Saturday? Visit SportsLine right now to see DFS millionaire Mike McClure’s complete optimal tournament and cash game lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings, and cash in big on MLB DFS.
