MLB DFS Prediction: Top DraftKings and FanDuel Picks for June 12 Featuring Juan Soto, Walker Buehler, and more

Today's MLB schedule has 15 games on it, which means there are no teams off on June 12 for Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS). Many MLB superstars should be playing and can be added to your lineup. There are also more than a few reliable pitchers tabbed to take the mound. Here's who needs to be on your radar.


Top MLB DFS pitchers for June 12

Walker Buehler ($8300 on DraftKings, $7800 on FanDuel)

Walker Buehler has had an up-and-down time since his return from the Injured List this year, expected after about two years of being hurt. However, he's still a talented pitcher and the Los Angeles Dodgers are often good to get their pitchers a win.

Nick Lodolo ($9600 on DraftKings, $10800 on FanDuel)

Nick Lodolo has been fantastic for the Cincinnati Reds. He's currently 6-2, which is no small feat for a team that's three games under .500. He also has a 2.92 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. Pick him up for June 12's lineup.

Chris Bassitt ($8000 on DraftKings, $8500 on FanDuel)

Chris Bassitt has been solid for the Toronto Blue Jays, posting six wins and a respectable 3.80 ERA. He does face the Milwaukee Brewers today but is one of the best picks for starting pitchers.


Top MLB DFS hitters for June 12

Juan Soto ($6200 on DraftKings, $4500 on FanDuel)

Juan Soto has been one of baseball's best hitters. The New York Yankees slugger is one of only a few MLB players with an OPS over 1.000, and he's hitting over .300 as well. Pick him for the series finale with the Kansas City Royals.

Jose Altuve ($5400 on DraftKings, $3800 on FanDuel)

Jose Altuve is hitting .295 with 10 home runs and a .791 OPS. He is one of the few Houston Astros players who is not in a slump right now, and that means he should be in your DFS lineup on June 12.

Fernando Tatis Jr. ($5800 on DraftKings, $4100 on FanDuel)

Fernando Tatis Jr. is on a hot streak. He's raised his season batting average to .283 and has 13 home runs, 35 RBI, and an .835 OPS. The San Diego Padres get the Oakland Athletics again, so pick Tatis up.


Budget picks for MLB DFS June 12

Alec Burleson ($3700 on DraftKings, $2700 on FanDuel)

Alec Burleson has nine home runs for the St. Louis Cardinals and is hitting .283. There aren't many better options at the low price of $2700 on FanDuel. He's been solid in 2024 and could provide good value on June 12.

Bryson Stott ($5000 on DraftKings, $3100 on FanDuel)

Bryson Stott has been decent for the Philadelphia Phillies this year, but he's a good pick today with the struggling Boston Red Sox on deck. Pick him up for DFS and reap the rewards.

Maikel Garcia ($4800 on DraftKings, $3300 on FanDuel)

Maikel Garcia is hitting leadoff for the Kansas City Royals and has 16 stolen bases this season. He can easily get on and get into scoring position for Bobby Witt Jr. and Salvador Perez, meaning he's a good run-scoring option for DFS.
