NBA DFS: Top Jazz vs. Clippers DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy basketball picks for June 12, 2021

News Post || News Now

The 2021 NBA Playoffs continue on Saturday as the Los Angeles Clippers take on the Utah Jazz in Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Clippers vs. Jazz is the only show in town, but with big money on the line in NBA daily Fantasy tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on FanDuel and DraftKings, NBA DFS players are studying the rosters closely in search of value. Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has been dominating this series, averaging 41.0 points while shooting 52.5 percent from the floor in guiding Utah to a 2-0 series lead.

But as the series shifts to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, is Mitchell still the highest-upside option for your NBA DFS lineups, or will Kawhi Leonard and Paul George show up to get the Clippers back into the series? A single-game slate means that the NBA DFS player pool is shallow on Saturday night, so you have to nail absolutely every NBA DFS pick you make. Before locking in any NBA daily Fantasy basketball lineups for Saturday’s NBA DFS action, be sure to see the core lineup selections, player pool and NBA DFS strategy from SportsLine’s Mike McClure

McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He’s 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.


And on Friday, McClure included Nuggets center Nikola Jokic as one of his top picks. The result: the MVP had a monster night with 32 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists to return 78 points on DraftKings. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Saturday, June 12 NBA DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Saturday, June 12

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Saturday is Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic. The 32-year-old has become one of the NBA’s most elite shooters during his seven-year career and he’s coming off a regular season where he averaged 17.0 points per game while shooting 39.0 percent from the 3-point line.

Bogdanovic, Mitchell and Jordan Clarkson have all been shooting phenomenally so far this series, with Bogdanovic knocking down 54.5 percent from the 3-point line, while Mitchell is hitting 44.4 percent from beyond the arc and Clarkson is shooting 52.2 percent from deep. With the Clippers having to focus so much attention on those other two dynamic scorers, look for Bogdanovic to continue getting a lot of clean looks and presenting a lot of scoring value for NBA DFS.

Part of McClure’s NBA DFS strategy for Friday also includes rostering Leonard. After an absolutely sensational series where he essentially carried the Clippers past the Mavericks, Leonard has been relatively quiet the first two games against Utah, averaging 22.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists.

However, Leonard produced at least 55 points on DraftKings in six of the seven games he played in the opening-round series against Dallas and the veteran will know that he’ll have to take over again if the Clippers are going to get back into this series. Leonard is shooting 58.2 percent from the floor this postseason, and when the Clippers were down 0-2 against the Mavericks, Leonard had 36 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal while shooting 13-of-17 from the floor. With the sense of urgency ramped way up, this is a great spot to use Leonard in NBA DFS lineups.
