Six games are on the NBA DFS main slate for Thursday, March 14, and some of the league’s top defenses will be taking the floor as the action gets underway at 7 p.m. ET. The Pacers, Magic, Jazz and Nuggets are among the teams playing and they are all in the top-10 in scoring defense. That presents some challenges for NBA DFS players setting their rosters as they search for value in some potentially low-scoring matchups. Before entering an NBA DFS tournament such as the $300K Thursday NBA Shot on FanDuel or the $400K Thursday Special on DraftKings, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s a professional DFS player who has won almost $2 million in his career, and his top NBA DFS picks, optimal lineups and advice can help you navigate Thursday’s challenging slate.
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 absolutely rolling through the 2018-19 NBA season, producing multiple optimal lineups that have led to huge returns for followers, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 84x on DraftKings.
For Thursday’s NBA DFS slate, McClure is banking on Thunder forward Paul George at $10,000 on FanDuel and $9,700 on DraftKings. George is coming off a win over the Nets where he stuffed the stat sheet with 25 points, nine rebounds, three assists and a pair of blocks and steals. That led to around 50 points and 5x value on both sites. He has that kind of upside again on Thursday as he takes on his former team, the Indiana Pacers.
Part of McClure’s NBA DFS strategy for Thursday also includes targeting Kings forward Nemanja Bjelica ($5,200 on FanDuel, $4,900 on DraftKings), who has gone off for at least 8x value on both sites in his last two matchups. It’ll be important to keep an eye on the NBA injury report for Thursday, because Bjelica’s value could fluctuate if Marvin Bagley (knee) is able to play. But with Bagley considered very questionable, Bjelica has great upside as he comes off consecutive double-doubles.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup Thursday. The stars are aligning for him to return 40, even 50 points on both sites, and he comes at an extremely affordable price. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
