Not generally known as an offensive juggernaut, the Utah Jazz have been supplying tournament-winning NBA DFS performances while they've built a 2-1 series lead over the Nuggets. Donovan Mitchell boosted NBA DFS lineups with a whopping 57 points in Game 1. Jordan Clarkson came off the bench for a surprising 26 points in Game 2, then Mike Conley scored 27 in his return to the NBA bubble in Game 3. Should you look to Utah again on Sunday for your top daily Fantasy basketball picks?
Which players from Celtics vs. Sixers, Clippers vs. Mavericks and Raptors vs. Nets should be part of your NBA DFS strategy? Before finalizing any picks on sites like FanDuel or DraftKings for Sunday, be sure to see the NBA DFS advice, player pool and core lineup picks from Mike McClure, a daily Fantasy pro who has won almost $2 million.
McClure is 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. He saw multiple huge cashes again early in the 2019-20 NBA season and got 2020 off to a blistering start with his optimal lineup returning at least 7x on DraftKings on three of the first five days of the new year. He's returned 4x or more multiple times since that point. Anybody following him has seen huge returns.
On Saturday, McClure was all over Heat center Bam Adebayo as one of his top picks. The result: Adebayo erupted for 22 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Anybody who built lineups around him was well on the way to a strong return.
Now, he's turned his attention to Sunday's NBA DFS slate. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks.
McClure's top NBA DFS picks for Aug. 23
For Sunday's NBA Playoff slate, McClure is high on high on Mavericks guard Luka Doncic at $10,800 on DraftKings and $10,500 on FanDuel. He's the most expensive player in the NBA DFS player pool on Sunday for both sites, but McClure's projections say he's well worth the price as a centerpiece for NBA DFS lineups.
Through three games in the Clippers vs. Mavericks series, Doncic has returned well over 4x value each time on DraftKings. And while his shot wasn't falling in the Game 3 loss, he still managed to record a triple-double, salvaging an otherwise frustrating night. That type of versatility gives him a high DFS floor, and with the ability to go off for 40-plus points in a given night as well, he's a smart choice for your Sunday NBA DFS picks.
McClure's NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Nets guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot at $5,000 on DraftKings and $4,700 on FanDuel. With Brooklyn missing multiple key pieces from its roster in Orlando, the third-year pro has been seeing over 30 minutes on the floor regularly. In Game 1 against Toronto, he scored 27 points and grabbed seven rebounds.
That performance returned over 10x value on DraftKings. While those numbers can't be banked on every game, he has been consistently returning at least 4x value since he's scoring double-digits on a regular basis. At a price of $5,000 or less on DraftKings and FanDuel, he's one of the top value NBA DFS picks on Sunday's slate.
How to set your NBA DFS lineups for Aug. 23
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. You can only see who it is here.
