NBA DFS: Anthony Davis and top FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks for Sunday, Nov. 3
Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2 million in career earnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Without Kawhi Leonard in the lineup on Wednesday, both NBA DFS players and the Los Angeles Clippers didn't fare so well against the Utah Jazz – as Los Angeles absorbed a 110-96 road loss. But unlike Wednesday's game, the Clippers expect to have their superstar on the court Sunday for a second meeting in four days between the teams at 9 p.m. ET. Leonard, who's averaging 29.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 2.2 steals per game, will certainly be among the most popular NBA DFS plays on Sunday, but who else can return tournament-winning value for NBA DFS players? With FanDuel hosting a $200K Sunday NBA Shot, and DraftKings running a $200K Excellent 8's that awards $50K to the winner, there are some difficult decisions for NBA DFS players to make. Before you enter these NBA DFS tournaments or any others for Sunday evening, you'll want to see the top NBA DFS picks and lineups from Mike McClure. He's a professional DFS player who has won almost $2 million in his career.
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 on Wednesday. Then, he cashed on every lineup he gave SportsLine members on Thursday and Friday, and cashed with ease again on Monday and on Halloween. Anybody following him has seen HUGE returns. Now, he's turned his attention to Sunday's NBA DFS slate.
For Sunday's slate, we can tell you McClure is rostering Knicks forward Frank Ntilikina at $3,800 on FanDuel and $3,100 on DraftKings. The three-year veteran earned his first start of the season and played 38 minutes Friday against the Celtics – scoring 10 points with three rebounds and three steals along with hard-nosed defense. Ntilikina has averaged 29.7 minutes in his last three games with Elfrid Payton (hamstring) and Dennis Smith Jr. (personal) out. Now Ntilikina will look to exploit a Sacramento Kings team that has given up 113 or more points in four of their first six games this season. Ntilikina is a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your NBA DFS lineups and look for a big return against Sacramento.
Part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy Sunday also includes rostering Anthony Davis ($11,600 on FanDuel, $10,200 on DraftKings). He ranks fourth in scoring at 29.2 points per game for the 4-1 Lakers. His points-per-game average is up almost six over his career numbers, and his 11.6 rebounds per game are 1.1 higher than his career mark. Keep riding his hot streak and include Davis as part of your Sunday NBA DFS strategy.
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.
