The NBA trade deadline led to massive changes around the league that NBA DFS players will need to quickly study before setting lineups on Saturday evening. The Feb. 9 main slate begins at 7 p.m. ET with eight games on the schedule. Kawhi Leonard (knee) is the biggest name listed on the NBA injury report for Saturday. And with rotations changing around the league as new players settle in after trades, some expert help can go a long way in helping set rosters on Saturday. Before entering any contests on a daily Fantasy site like FanDuel or DraftKings, you’ll want to see the top NBA DFS picks, advice and optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million in his career.
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 is absolutely rolling through the 2018-19 NBA season, producing multiple optimal lineups that have led to huge returns for followers, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 84x on DraftKings.
Now McClure has studied all eight games on the Saturday schedule, and we can tell you he’s high on Wizards forward Bobby Portis at $6,500 on FanDuel and $5,400 on DraftKings. He’s stacking him with Jabari Parker ($3,900 on FanDuel, $4,800 on DraftKings) as this duo takes aim at the Bulls, the team that just traded both of them and also a squad that is just 13-42 on the season and gives up 111.2 points per game.
This NBA DFS strategy gives owners plenty of exposure to that Wizards vs. Bulls matchup, but also leaves plenty of salary cap room on both sites. With a Saturday NBA DFS player pool that includes James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis, that’ll come in extremely handy as you look to build the perfect NBA DFS roster.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup on Saturday. The stars are aligning for him to return 40, even 50 points on both sites, and he comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
