MLB DFS: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks, lineups, advice, stacks for June 11, 2024

A tried-and-true MLB DFS strategy is to target games with high totals, while many daily Fantasy baseball managers will offer MLB DFS advice to zero in on contests with weak starting pitchers. Well, Angels vs. Diamondbacks falls into both of those categories as no game on Tuesday’s MLB schedule has a higher Over/Under (9.5), while the projected starters in Jose Suarez and Jordan Montgomery both have ERAs north of 6.00. So, the likes of Ketel Marte, Christian Walker, Corbin Carroll and Luis Rengifo look appealing for Tuesday’s MLB DFS lineups.

A potentially undervalued option in this matchup could be Angels catcher Logan O’Hoppe. He’s coming off a four-hit game, with eight total knocks over his current four-game hit streak. He’s not among the top eight most expensive catchers on either FanDuel or DraftKings, so rostering him would then allow more MLB DFS salary cap space for other players. Before locking in any MLB DFS picks for Tuesday, 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 more than $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 Monday, McClure Twins pitcher Chris Paddack in his MLB DFS player pool on both sites. The result: Paddack threw 6.1 scoreless innings and struck out six batters, returning 47 points on FanDuel and 26.7 points on DraftKings. Anybody who included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, with the 2024 MLB season rolling, McClure has locked in his top MLB daily Fantasy picks for Tuesday, June 11. You can head to SportsLine now to see them

McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday

One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Tuesday is Yankees outfielder Juan Soto at $4,400 on FanDuel and $6,200 on DraftKings. After missing three games due to forearm inflammation, Soto had a successful return to the lineup on Monday. He reached base twice, with one hit and one walk, while also scoring a run in New York’s 4-2 win over Kansas City. Soto enters play Tuesday on an 11-game on-base streak, reaching safely 25 times over that stretch and posting a slash line of .371/.521/.771.

Soto’s contract year is going about as well as he could have hoped for as he boasts a 1.024 OPS. He ranks second in the AL in batting average (.324), third in RBI (53), fourth in total bases (145) and fifth in home runs (17). An on-base machine, as evident by his current streak reaching base, Soto also ranks second in both walks and on-base percentage, so he can do damage even without swinging a bat. With Soto batting second on a team that leads the league in OPS, he’s in an advantageous position nightly, so you can see why McClure is high on him.

McClure is also rostering Angels outfielder Jo Adell ($3,600 on DraftKings and $2,700 on FanDuel). Formerly the No. 2 prospect in all of baseball in both 2019 and 2020, Adell is finally getting a full-time opportunity in his fifth MLB season. While his average is low, he has 11 home runs, which is tied for the team-lead, as well as nine stolen bases, which ranks second on Los Angeles. Adell is discernibly better versus lefties (1.068 OPS) than against righties (.538 OPS) as he readies to face southpaw Montgomery.

The former Ranger has gotten absolutely lit up over his last two starts, giving up 14 ER over the 6.0 innings pitched. He’s also allowed 17 hits and six walks over these starts, and things won’t get any better once Arizona turns the ball over to its bullpen. The Diamondbacks’ 4.59 bullpen ERA ranks third-worst in the NL, so Adell should have favorable matchups from start to finish. Additionally, Adell ranks second in the majors in defensive runs saved amongst rightfielders, so he’s not one who will be replaced late in games, which further raises his MLB DFS potential. See McClure’s full MLB DFS player pool at SportsLine.
