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.
Now, he’s turned his attention to Saturday’s NBA schedule. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks. Here are five of the most expensive players in Saturday’s NBA DFS player pool:
LeBron James ($11,000 on DraftKings, $10,400 on FanDuel)James Harden ($10,900 on DraftKings, $11,200 on FanDuel)Trae Young ($10,300 on DraftKings, $10,000 on FanDuel)Anthony Davis ($10,200 on DraftKings, $10,700 on FanDuel)Russell Westbrook ($10,100 on DraftKings, $10,600 on FanDuel)McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Saturday
For Saturday, McClure likes Spurs guard/small forward DeMar DeRozan at $7,500 on FanDuel and $7,600 on DraftKings. Daily Fantasy players who have invested in the San Antonio wing have seen some big returns recently, including 5x or more on DraftKings four times in February. His best performance came on Wednesday against the Mavericks when he posed 27 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, returning a whopping 51.5 points on DraftKings. That led to over 7x value on DraftKings.
DeRozan, who ranks 18th in the league in scoring (22.8 ppg), takes on the Magic on Saturday. He has a similar price to players such as Spencer Dinwiddie and Jimmy Butler, but McClure’s model indicates that there’s a lot of value on DeRozan in this spot, so confidently insert him into your NBA DFS lineups for Saturday.
Part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy for Saturday includes rostering Pacers point guard Malcolm Brogdon ($5,900 on FanDuel, $7,000 on DraftKings), who faces the Cavaliers, a team he’s averaged 27.5 points, 8.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds against this season.
That’s no surprise because Cleveland has struggled to defend point guards all season, giving up an average of 25 points and 9.2 assists per game to that position. At a very affordable price, Brogdon is a must-roster for this exploitable matchup.
