James Harden, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Chris Paul are among the most expensive players in the NBA DFS player pool on Wednesday as the 2020 NBA Playoffs roll on with a three-game schedule. Adding one of them to your NBA DFS lineups is a great way to almost guarantee big numbers. But their cost means you’ll need to find value elsewhere on the NBA DFS price list.
Players like Eric Gordon, Dennis Schroder and Danny Green have great matchups, but come at a much cheaper price. Are they NBA DFS picks you can bank on, or are there better values elsewhere? Daily Fantasy pro Mike McClure has won almost $2 million in his career, and his NBA DFS advice, strategy and top daily Fantasy picks can help you crush your selections on sites like FanDuel or DraftKings on Wednesday.
McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best NBA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NBA DFS player.
McClure rolled through the 2018-19 NBA season, producing multiple lineups that led to huge returns for followers, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 84x on DraftKings. He saw multiple huge cashes again early in the 2019-20 NBA season and got 2020 off to a blistering start with his optimal lineup returning at least 7x on DraftKings on three of the first five days of the new year. He’s returned 4x or more multiple times since that point. Anybody following him has seen huge returns.
On Tuesday, McClure was all over Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard as one of his core lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Leonard filled the stat sheet with 32 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal — returning over 50 points on DraftKings. Anybody who built lineups around him was well on the way to a strong return.
Now, he’s turned his attention to Wednesday’s NBA DFS slate. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks.
McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Aug. 26
For Wednesday’s NBA playoff slate, we can tell you McClure is high on Lakers guard Alex Caruso at $3,400 on DraftKings and $4,100 on FanDuel. With Rajon Rondo (back) not expected to play in Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Blazers, Caruso should continue to see big minutes for Los Angeles. Caruso has played 21 or more minutes in three of the first four games against Portland in this series.
Caruso played a major role in Los Angeles’ Game 3 victory over Portland, finishing with 10 points, seven assists, four rebounds and one block. And with Damian Lillard (knee) out of the lineup for Portland on Wednesday, Caruso has a chance to return big numbers. He’s a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your NBA DFS lineups and look for a big return against the Blazers.
McClure’s NBA DFS strategy for Wednesday also includes rostering Blazers guard CJ McCollum at $8,100 on DraftKings and $7,200 on FanDuel. Despite the tough matchup on paper, McClure loves McCollum’s upside against the Lakers. McCollum is averaging 23 points, 6.5 rebounds, three assists and two steals in his last two matchups against Los Angeles. And with Lillard out of the lineup on Wednesday, most of Portland’s offense is going to go through McCollum, so confidently lock him in your NBA DFS lineups.
