The 2018-19 NBA season rolls on Thursday night with four games on the NBA DFS main slate that begins at 7 p.m. ET and features some big-time matchups such as Rockets vs. Thunder, Warriors vs. Bucks and Celtics vs. 76ers. That means Steph Curry, James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo are among the big stars available this evening. And if you want to load your roster up with players such as these, finding the right NBA DFS value picks is key. With big prizes on the line in NBA DFS tournaments for Thursday, Nov. 9 such as the $400K Shot Machine on FanDuel and the $425K Big Jam on DraftKings, be sure to check out the top NBA DFS picks and lineups from Mike McClure. He’s a professional DFS player who has won almost $2M in his career. 

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. On Wednesday, McClure rostered Derrick Rose at just $5,500 on FanDuel. The result? He exploded for 31 points, five assists and three rebounds — returning almost 40 points and 7x value for owners.

For Thursday’s main slate, McClure is high on Warriors forward Kevin Durant at $10,800 on FanDuel and $10,200 on DraftKings. A proven DFS stud who regularly hits 50 points on both sites, Durant is worth paying up for this evening as he battles Antetokounmpo and the Bucks in a nationally-televised game between teams that are off to hot starts this season. 

He’s stacking Durant with forward Alfonzo McKinnie, who is $6,500 on FanDuel and $6,000 on DraftKings. McKinnie went off for 14 points in his last outing, and he has big upside again tonight in this matchup that has an Over-Under of 237 points. He’s the type of NBA DFS value pick that can make your roster stand out in big-money tournaments. 

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