After a thrilling start in Orlando on Thursday evening, the NBA returns for its first full day of action inside the bubble at Walt Disney World on Friday. Six matchups are on the schedule with Magic vs. Nets tipping the action off at 2:30 p.m. ET and the schedule concluding at 9 p.m. ET with Rockets vs. Mavericks. NBA DFS players have some big names in the NBA DFS player pool with James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic all set to take the floor.

But do their prices match the value needed to building winning NBA DFS lineups? And which overlooked players can provide surprising returns for daily Fantasy basketball tournaments on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings? Before making your NBA DFS picks for Friday, be sure to check out the optimal NBA DFS strategy and advice from daily Fantasy millionaire Mike McClure.

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 rolled through the 2018-19 NBA season, producing multiple lineups that led to huge returns for followers, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 84x on DraftKings. He saw multiple huge cashes again early in the 2019-20 NBA season and got 2020 off to a blistering start with his optimal lineup returning at least 7x on DraftKings on three of the first five days of the new year. He’s returned 4x or more multiple times since that point. Anybody following him has seen huge returns.

And on Thursday, McClure was all over Paul George as one of his top picks. The result: George exploded for 30 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals, returning almost 50 points and 7x value on DraftKings. Anybody who built lineups around him was well on the way to a strong return. 

Now, he’s turned his attention to Friday’s NBA schedule. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks

McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Friday

For Friday, McClure is high on Kings forward/center Richaun Holmes at just $5,100 on DraftKings and $3,900 on FanDuel. Holmes averages 12.8 points and 8.3 rebounds per game, making him a solid candidate for a double-double on any given day. He was also extremely impressive in his last matchup against San Antonio, his opponent on Friday.

In that game, Holmes scored 13 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and added five assists, two blocks and three steals. That performance returned almost 50 points and over 7x value on DraftKings. Despite that productivity, Holmes is well down the NBA DFS price list at his position on both sites, so confidently add him to your NBA DFS lineups.

McClure’s Friday NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Grizzlies guard Ja Morant at $6,300 on FanDuel and $7,000 on DraftKings. He faces the Blazers, a team that ranks 27th in the league in defensive rating. The rookie out of Murray State is a top-tier distributor, ranking 13th in the NBA with 6.9 assists. He’s also a very capable scorer, shooting 49.1 percent from the floor as he averages 17.6 points per contest.

Morant provided daily Fantasy players with strong returns before the coronavirus shutdown as well. He returned 6x or higher on DraftKings in three of his final seven games before the break, including a whopping return of almost 10x against the Lakers on Feb. 29. With a juicy matchup and a track record of providing value, Morant is one of the must-roster NBA DFS picks for Friday’s slate. 

How to set your NBA DFS lineups on Friday

McClure is also targeting another player who has a dream matchup on Friday. The stars are aligning for him to return 50, even 60 points on DraftKings and FanDuel. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
