NBA DFS players have several injury updates to monitor on Saturday, Jan. 12 with Karl-Anthony Towns (ankle), Devin Booker (back) and Steven Adams (ankle) among the notable players listed as game-time decisions as the six-game main slate gets underway at 7 p.m. ET this evening. If you’re eyeing a big-time NBA DFS tournament such as the $150K Human Highlight Shot on FanDuel or the $200K Pull Up Jumper on DraftKings, making the right call on players such as those and finding the best value picks will be the key tonight. Before locking in any NBA DFS rosters of your own, be sure to check out the optimal lineups and advice from Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million 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, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 15x on DraftKings.
For Saturday’s slate, McClure is banking on Thunder forward Paul George at $9,700 on FanDuel and $9,500 on DraftKings. George logged 47 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday, scoring 30 points and recording eight rebounds — good for around 5x value on both sites. He faces the Spurs again on Saturday, this time in OKC, so lock him in and look for another massive performance from one of the league’s best players who comes at a great price on Saturday.
Another pick he loves: Jazz forward Royce O’Neale ($3,500 on FanDuel, $3,900 on DraftKings), who went off for almost 10x value on DraftKings on Wednesday and gets an extremely favorable matchup against a porous Bulls defense this evening. Forward Thabo Sefolosha (hamstring) is also expected to be out for Utah, so expect big minutes and valuable production from O’Neale at a near-minimum price on Friday.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup on Saturday. 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.
