WNBA DFS: Sylvia Fowles and top picks for July 18 FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups

Before you set your DFS lineups for WNBA action on Wednesday, July 18, 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 sports.

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 WNBA picks only over at SportsLine.

On Sunday, McClure rostered Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner at $8,500 on FanDuel. The result: She had a massive night with 36 points and 12 rebounds. Anybody who had her in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable night.

For Wednesday's two-game slate, McClure likes Minnesota Lynx guard Tanisha Wright at $3,400 on FanDuel and $3,500 on DraftKings. 

Wright has seen close to 20 minutes per game on the floor recently and showed some scoring ability when she put up nine against Chicago earlier in the month. She's a value pick that can provide a nice return on Wednesday afternoon.

McClure is stacking Wright with center Sylvia Fowles, who is $8,500 on FanDuel and $12,900 on DraftKings.

Fowles just earned a WNBA All-Star nod after a strong first half of the season that included 16.7 points per game and 11.9 rebounds per contest. And both players get a nice matchup tonight against the Indiana Fever, a team that gives up 85.1 points per game -- tied for second worst in the entire league. Taking advantage of this matchup is key to cashing in huge on WNBA action on Wednesday afternoon.

McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup on Wednesday. The stars are aligning for her to go off for 30, even 40 points on both sites, and she comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
