With the NBA playoffs just around the corner, teams that have secured a spot in the postseason are being extremely cautious. That could create plenty of value for NBA DFS players on Tuesday. The Sixers, for example, already have Joel Embiid (ankle) and Ben Simmons (knee) out, and they’ve also listed Tobias Harris (ankle) and Al Horford (knee) as questionable. Josh Richardson is also sitting out to get rest. Who should you target on the 76ers in Tuesday’s NBA DFS lineups?
Philadelphia’s injuries could open the door for role players like Shake Milton, Alec Burks and Matisse Thybulle. But which of those players could be top NBA DFS picks, and which other players around the league should be in your daily Fantasy basketball lineups? Before locking in your NBA daily Fantasy picks on Tuesday on sites like FanDuel or DraftKings, check out the NBA DFS advice, player pool and core lineup plays from Mike McClure, a daily Fantasy pro has won almost $2 million.
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 Monday, McClure was all over Mavericks small forward Tim Hardaway Jr. as one of his top picks. The result: Hardaway, who was only $4,900 on FanDuel, exploded for 27 points — returning well over 7x value. Anybody who built lineups around him was well on the way to a strong return.
Now, he’s turned his attention to Tuesday’s NBA schedule. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks.
McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday
For Tuesday, McClure is high on Mavericks guard Luka Doncic at $10,500 on FanDuel and $10,800 on DraftKings. Doncic sat out of Monday’s game with an ankle injury, but that appeared to be more of a precautionary move to get him some rest as the playoffs approach. McClure projects that he’ll be back in the lineup on Tuesday against the Blazers.
The second-year pro continues to show why he’s one of the NBA’s elite players. He’s averaging 29.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game this season, ranking inside the top 20 in the league in all three categories. Daily Fantasy players have seen some big numbers from him in Orlando as well because he’s produced at least 6x value in four of his five games in the bubble.
McClure’s NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Kings guard Cory Joseph ($3,700 on DraftKings, $3,600 on FanDuel).The Kings don’t have anything left to play for in Orlando and will be without De’Aaron Fox (shoulder) on Tuesday. Guard Kent Bazemore (calf) is listed as questionable.
That should open up plenty of minutes for Joseph, who has already returned at least 5x value on DraftKings twice in Orlando. Joseph’s scoring upside is somewhat limited, but he’s been a steady source of assists in the NBA bubble, averaging 4.2 per game. He’s also collected four or more rebounds three times in Orlando. The Pelicans rank 27th in the league in scoring defense (117 ppg), so this is an ideal spot to roster Joseph as one of your core NBA DFS picks and look for a big return.
