The 2019-20 NBA season resumed on Thursday after a more than four-month layoff and the action from the NBA bubble has already been intense. Anthony Davis had 34 points, eight rebounds and four assists as the Lakers edged the Clippers, and Zion Williamson had 13 points in just 15 minutes of action as the Jazz beat the Pelicans. NBA DFS owners will be hoping to get more of the same from Davis and to see a larger dose of Williamson with both teams back in action on Saturday. Should you target either with your NBA DFS picks?

Meanwhile, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and the Sixers will make their bubble debuts on Saturday, and Simmons’ newfound confidence shooting jump shots could lead to high ownership in NBA DFS lineups. It’s a loaded NBA DFS player pool, but there are new variables in play with every team playing inside the bubble and without fans. Before making your NBA DFS picks for Saturday, 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 Friday, McClure was all over Russell Westbrook as one of his top picks. The result: Westbrook absolutely went off for 31 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, returning over 60 points and almost 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 Saturday’s NBA schedule. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks

McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Saturday

For Saturday, McClure is high on Clippers forward Paul George at $7,900 on DraftKings and $7,700 on FanDuel. George looked right at home in the bubble on Thursday, scoring 30 points, grabbing five rebounds and recording three assists and steals against the Lakers. That led to a strong return for daily Fantasy basketball players of around 50 points on FanDuel and DraftKings. 

The Clippers draw a juicy matchup against the Pelicans, a team that ranks No. 27 in the NBA in scoring defense (116.8 ppg). George averaged 25.5 points and seven rebounds, both above his season averages, in two previous matchups with New Orleans this year, making him a strong choice to build NBA DFS lineups around on Saturday. 

McClure’s Saturday NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Jazz guard Mike Conley at $5,400 on DraftKings and $5,700 on FanDuel. The veteran point guard has returned at least 5x value on DraftKings in his last seven games, including a steady debut in Orlando with 20 points and four assists against New Orleans on Thursday.

Despite his recent track record, Conley is just the 14th-most expensive option at point guard on DraftKings for Saturday as he takes on the Thunder, a team that ranks 20th defending him position. Lock him in as one of your top NBA DFS picks as the Jazz look for their seventh win in their last eight games. 

How to set your NBA DFS lineups on Saturday

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