NBA DFS: Marc Gasol and top picks for March 14 FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups
NBA DFS players will be paying special attention to a pair of games on Thursday, March 14. Celtics vs. Kings (226) and Lakers vs. Raptors (231) have the highest projected over-unders this evening, according to oddsmakers. That means those matchups can supply big-time offense across the board. And before breaking down those games or any of the other four on the NBA schedule for 3-14-19, first check out the top NBA DFS picks from Mike McClure. He’s studied tonight’s NBA DFS main slate and has made optimal lineups for daily Fantasy sports sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings. His NBA DFS advice can help give you an edge in any cash game or tournament on Thursday evening.
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 Raptors center Marc Gasol at $6,500 on FanDuel and $5,900 on DraftKings. He comes at an extremely affordable price on both sites, but has big upside this evening in a potentially high-scoring shootout with the Hawks, one of the league’s worst defensive squads. While he doesn’t play quite the same volume of minutes in Toronto as he did for Memphis, Gasol is a solid producer of rebounds. And he’s shown the ability to pay off huge for DFS players, like when he returned over 6x value in back-to-back games earlier this month.
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 50, even 60 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.
