McClure's top NBA DFS picks for Sunday
For Sunday, we can tell you McClure is high on Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant ($6,200 on FanDuel, $6,300 on DraftKings). Morant scored a team-high 15 points, dealt six assists, and grabbed three rebounds in Friday's loss to the 76ers. The leading Rookie of the Year candidate has scored in double-digits in eight straight games, averaging 16.9 points, 7.0 assists, 3.1 boards and 0.9 steals over that span while shooting 54.1 percent from the floor.
Morant and the Grizzlies face the Wizards on Sunday, a team he went for 18/4/5 against earlier this season and that ranks 27th defending his position.
Part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy on Sunday also includes rostering Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Paul George ($8,600 on FanDuel, $8,100 on DraftKings). George went for 21 points, five rebounds, three steals, two blocks and two assists in Saturday's blowout loss at Minnesota. George stuffed the stat sheet despite playing four fewer minutes than his season average, and he's gone over 20 points in three of the Clippers' last four games.
George is averaging 22.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 31 starts this season, and he does his best work this season on Sundays, scoring 25.2 points per game on the seventh day of the week. He faces the Cavaliers, who are dead last in the NBA in scoring differential.
How to set your NBA DFS lineups 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.
