WNBA DFS: Candace Parker and top picks for August 12 FanDuel and DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball lineups
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with more than $1M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Before you set your WNBA DFS lineups for action on Sunday, August 12, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has nearly $2 million in career DFS winnings and has cashed huge on numerous tournament and cash game rosters in NBA, MLB, NFL, golf, NASCAR and other DFS games.
A predictive data engineer specializing in player projections and advanced statistical analysis, McClure is the go-to authority when it comes to optimal DFS lineups, and now he's sharing his top WNBA DFS picks only over at SportsLine.
Earlier this week, McClure rostered Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker on both sites. The result? She went off for 20 points, four rebounds and three assists on Thursday. Anybody who had her in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.
For Sunday's WNBA main slate on FanDuel and DraftKings, McClure again likes Parker.
That's because she's one of the most balanced players in the league with 18.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. She also puts up strong numbers on defense, including 2.2 blocks and 1.2 steals per contest. She'll have a great chance to top some of those numbers against a Phoenix Mercury squad with a mediocre defense that gives up 83 points per game.
Another pick he loves for Sunday: Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart, who is averaging 22.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up massive numbers who has a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for her to put up 30, even 40 points on FanDuel. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
So who is DFS pro Mike McClure putting in his optimal WNBA DFS lineup on Sunday? Visit SportsLine now to see the full WNBA tournament lineups for Sunday, all from a professional DFS player who has earned nearly $2 million in career winnings.
