NBA DFS: Rudy Gobert and best FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks, advice for March 6, 2022

Memphis Grizzlies small forward Desmond Bane is coming off of his best game since February 16 with a 24-point, six-rebound performance against the Orlando Magic on Saturday night. He also had his best shooting night since February 10, knocking down 66.7 percent of his shots in the 28-point victory. Bane and the Grizzlies are back in action on Sunday against the Houston Rockets, but is he a smart option to include in NBA DFS lineups in the second game of a back-to-back?

Like Orlando, Houston has been one of the league’s weakest teams, but the Rockets have been a reasonably tough Fantasy defense against opposing small forwards on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. Bane has actually played some of his best basketball this season in the second games of back-to-backs, averaging 20.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists on the quick turnarounds, while hitting 47.3 percent of his 3-pointers. Before you make your NBA DFS picks for Sunday, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks 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.

On Saturday, McClure listed Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray as one of his top NBA DFS picks on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Murray finished as the top-scoring point guard in Saturday’s main slate of games, finishing with 25 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds, and three steals to return 57.75 points on DraftKings and 57.8 points FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Sunday, March 6, 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 Sunday, March 6

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks on Sunday is Jazz center Rudy Gobert, who is listed at $8,500 on DraftKings and $8,400 on FanDuel. Gobert has been building his game back up slowly but surely after missing nine games beginning at the end of January due to a calf injury. He was eased back into action on Feb. 14, and in the five starts since then, he’s averaged 14.4 points, 14 rebounds and 2.2 blocks.

On Sunday, Utah takes on Oklahoma City, which has been getting production out of its younger frontcourt players, but shouldn’t pose an intimidating matchup. In his last game against the Thunder on November 24, Gobert scored 15 points, grabbed 17 boards and blocked five shots for the second time this season. Gobert had a bit of a quiet night in his last game on Friday, but only played 25 minutes, so he should come into Sunday’s game well-rested and ready to roll.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes stacking Gobert with Utah guard Jordan Clarkson ($5,000 on DraftKings and $4,900 on FanDuel). The team announced Mike Conley will be out for Sunday’s game against Oklahoma City (injury management), which could land Clarkson in the starting lineup for the second time this season. In his previous start against Phoenix on January 24, he recorded 22 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals.

In Utah’s game against the Thunder in November, Clarkson had one of his better games this year, scoring 20 points while knocking down 58.3 percent of his shots. Oklahoma City is a mess right now when it comes to injuries, and the player that would pose the biggest defensive problems for Clarkson, Josh Giddey (hip), is among those that will miss Sunday’s game. Giddey is one of three players that make up the top four rebounders in OKC’s backcourt rotation who will be out, so Clarkson should see an uptick with his production on the boards as well.

McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Sunday because of a dream matchup. 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.
