NBA DFS: Anthony Davis and optimal FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks for Sunday, Nov. 10
Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2 million in career earnings, gives optimal lineup advice
NBA DFS players have plenty to look forward to on Sunday. The Los Angeles Lakers have won seven straight games and play host to the surprising 6-2 Toronto Raptors at 9:30 p.m. ET, as LeBron James and Anthony Davis take on Pascal Siakam. One player who won't be a target in the NBA DFS player pool is Kyle Lowry, who fractured his left thumb on Friday. James and Davis are coming off a combined 51-point effort in beating the Heat to improve to 7-1 on Friday, while Siakam tied a career-high with 44 points to go with 10 rebounds in a win against the Pelicans on Friday. Not only will the Raptors be without Lowry, but Serge Ibaka severely sprained his ankle and is out indefinitely. Which players should you target with your NBA DFS picks? And who from the Raptors should you target with your optimal NBA DFS strategy? Before locking in your daily Fantasy basketball lineups for any tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings on Sunday, listen to what SportsLine's Mike McClure has to say.
McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He's 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. Now, he's off to a blistering start to the 2019-20 NBA season, cashing on both sites on Tuesday's Opening Night 2019 and then following that up with returns as high as 20x on DraftKings the next night. Overall, his lineups have cashed a whopping 80 percent of the time so far on DraftKings and 60 percent on FanDuel. Anybody following him has seen huge returns. Now he's turned his attention to Sunday's NBA DFS slate.
For Sunday, we can tell you McClure is high on Davis ($11,300 on FanDuel, $9,900 on DraftKings). Davis ranks eighth in the NBA with 26.5 points per game. Part of his value lies in his versatility, as he has been relied on to score (40 points against the Grizzlies on Oct. 29) and rebound (20 boards in that same game and 10.5 rebounds overall). Davis has hit 35.25 points in every single game on DraftKings this season.
Part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy Sunday also includes rostering Indiana Pacers point guard Aaron Holiday ($4,100 on FanDuel, $4,700 on DraftKings). Holiday exploded for 18 points on Wednesday night against the Wizards, his highest point total since putting up 19 on the Jazz in November of his rookie season. The Pacers are using Holiday more in 2019 than they did last season, as he already has two starts in seven games after coming off the bench for all 50 games he appeared in during his rookie campaign. With the Pacers enduring a rash of injuries – shooting guards Victor Oladipo, Jeremy Lamb and Edmond Sumner are all out – Holiday should get plenty of minutes against the Magic on Sunday.
McClure is also targeting another player who has a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to return 50, even 60 points on DraftKings and FanDuel. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
