NBA DFS, All-Star Game: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy basketball picks
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with more than $1M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Before you enter a Single Game on FanDuel or a Showdown on DraftKings for the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, February 18, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and is off to a red-hot start this season, already cashing multiple tournament and cash game rosters.
He has been able to do all that thanks to some spot-on picks.
He finished off the first half of the NBA season on Thursday by putting Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris in his FanDuel lineup at just $6,000. The result: Harris scored 28 points on 5-of-7 shooting behind the arc -- returning 31.2 points on FanDuel, one of his best performances of the season.
Anybody who had him on their roster was well on their way to a huge NBA DFS night.
For Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game, McClure loves Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, a member of Team Curry who's $14,000 on FanDuel and $10,400 on DraftKings.
Antetokounmpo posted a 36-point triple-double in his last outing against the Nuggets. That was his ninth triple-double of his career, which set a Bucks franchise record. He thrives in fast-paced, high-scoring games like what's anticipated in Team LeBron vs. Team Stephen, so expect the Greek Freak to pile up huge points.
Roster Antetokounmpo and you'll have plenty of room to add another huge star like Russell Westbrook, who is playing for Team LeBron and is $14,500 on FanDuel and $11,000 on DraftKings.
Westbrook erupted for 41 points and seven rebounds in last year's All-Star game and will look to duplicate those numbers this year. He'll be one of the top overall plays on Sunday night.
He has scored at least 50 points on DraftKings and FanDuel in his last four games and is coming off an impressive performance against the Grizzlies that saw him produce 23 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds.
McClure is also targeting a player who is perfectly suited for this type of up-tempo exhibition. Picks like this could be the difference between winning big or going home with nothing.
