The 2018-19 NBA DFS season rolls on Monday, Jan. 14 with six games on the main slate that gets underway at 7:30 p.m. ET. James Harden, Anthony Davis and Blake Griffin are among the most expensive options this evening, and the NBA injury news is headlined by Kyrie Irving’s quadriceps issue that has him listed as questionable for this evening. With FanDuel running a $333K NBA Shot tournament and DraftKings hosting a $400K Bounce Pass Celebration contest, finding the best value picks will be the key to cashing in this evening. Before locking in any NBA DFS lineups of your own, be sure to check out what DFS pro Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career, and his optimal lineups, picks and advice can help your roster separate from the pack on Monday.

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 is off to a blistering start, cashing his first five lineups on DraftKings to open the season, as well as producing multiple other optimal lineups that have led to huge returns for followers, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 15x on DraftKings. 

For Monday’s slate, McClure is banking on Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis at $12,700 on FanDuel and $11,600 on DraftKings. Davis is the second most expensive player on both sites, but a closer look at his recent production shows why he can easily be worth the price. He’s gone off for 80 or more points on FanDuel in three of his past seven games, and that’s the type of production you can expect this evening in a matchup against the Clippers, a team ranked 24th in the league in scoring defense.

Part of his NBA DFS strategy for Monday includes targeting Trail Blazers small forward Evan Turner ($4,500 on FanDuel, $4,400 on DraftKings), who has returned at least 5x value on both sites in consecutive games and gets an extremely favorable matchup against the Kings this evening. As Portland forward Moe Harkless continues to deal with knee soreness, Turner is a top NBA DFS value pick you should be all over. 

McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup on Monday. The stars are aligning for him to return 40, even 50 points on both sites, and he comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
