The 2020 NBA Playoffs continue on Tuesday with another two-game slate in Orlando. Game 2 of Celtics vs. Raptors tips the action off at 5:30 p.m. ET, while the deciding Game 7 of Nuggets vs. Jazz begins at 8:30 p.m. ET. All four teams stocking the NBA DFS player pool on Tuesday have rated well defensively this season.There are still plenty of big names, however, like Donovan Mitchell, Nikola Jokic, Jayson Tatum and Pascal Siakam to build NBA DFS lineups around on daily Fantasy sites like DraftKings or FanDuel. 

Which stars should be your top NBA DFS picks on this slate? And where is the value lower on the NBA DFS price list? Before setting your NBA DFS strategy for Tuesday, be sure to see the top daily Fantasy basketball picks, NBA DFS advice and player pool from Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.

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. 

On Monday, McClure was all over Rockets forward Robert Covington as one of his top picks. The result: Covington, who was under $6,000 on both sites, erupted for 18 points, five rebounds, five steals and three blocks — returning over 7x value on FanDuel and DraftKings. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a winning day.

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

McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Sept. 1

For Tuesday’s NBA playoff slate, McClure is high on Celtics guard Marcus Smart at $6,000 on DraftKings and $5,700 on FanDuel. Smart was a big part of Boston’s Game 1 win over Toronto. 

He piled up 21 points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal. From a daily Fantasy standpoint, it was his most productive game in the bubble as he accounted for close to 40 points and 7x value on DraftKings. With Gordon Hayward (ankle) still out and Kemba Walker (knee) perhaps less than 100 percent, McClure expects big numbers from Smart again on Tuesday. 

Part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy for Tuesday includes rostering Jazz guard Mike Conley at $6,800 on DraftKings and $6,600 on FanDuel. The veteran point guard has returned at least 5x value on both sites every game he’s played against the Nuggets in this series.

He’s posted big numbers in the postseason as he’s averaged 22.8 points and 4.8 assists thus far. At under $7,000 on both sites, McClure thinks he’s a great choice for NBA DFS lineups on Tuesday. 

How to set your NBA DFS lineups for Sept. 1

McClure is also targeting another player who has a dream matchup on Tuesday. 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.
