NBA DFS: Eric Bledsoe and top FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks for March 9, 2020


Trae Young has been one of the most electrifying players in the NBA this season, and he is a part of the Monday NBA DFS player pool. The second-year Atlanta Hawks point guard is fourth in scoring this season at 29.4 points per game and second in assists with 9.2 per outing. And he torched Monday’s opponent, the Charlotte Hornets, for 30 points, seven rebounds and nine assists earlier this season.

Meanwhile, Pascal Siakam, Donovan Mitchell and Kyle Lowry will be one of the more intriguing NBA DFS stacks when the Toronto Raptors take on the Utah Jazz. Before entering any NBA DFS lineups for tournaments such as FanDuel’s $350K Monday NBA Shot Machine or the $350K Fadeaway on DraftKings, be sure to check out the optimal NBA DFS picks and strategy from daily Fantasy pro Mike McClure, who has won almost $2 million in his career.  

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. 

Now, he’s turned his attention to Monday’s NBA schedule. Head to SportsLine to see his optimal NBA DFS picks. Here are five of the most expensive players in Monday’s NBA DFS player pool:

  • Nikola Jokic ($9,700 on FanDuel, $9,500 on DraftKings)
  • Trae Young ($9,600 on FanDuel, $10,300 on DraftKings)
  • John Collins ($8,600 on FanDuel, $9,000 on DraftKings)
  • Rudy Gobert ($8,400 on FanDuel, $7,900 on DraftKings)
  • Pascal Siakam ($7,900 on FanDuel, $8,700 on DraftKings)

McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Monday

For Monday, McClure is high on Young at $9,600 on FanDuel and $10,300 on DraftKings. In his return from missing a game due to illness, the Atlanta superstar notched 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals on Saturday at Memphis. That outing is an aberration of Young’s form this season, as he is fourth in scoring this season at 29.4 points per game and second in assists with 9.2 per outing.

Young’s last 10 games have been strong, as he has pumped in 27.7 points, grabbed 3.6 rebounds and dished 9.6 assists in that span. And he torched Monday’s opponent, the Charlotte Hornets, for 30 points, seven rebounds and nine assists earlier this season. Combine that with Charlotte being 27th in the NBA in point differential, and it is easy to see why McClure loves Young in all NBA DFS formats Monday.

Part of McClure’s optimal Monday NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe ($6,200 on FanDuel, $5,700 on DraftKings). Bledsoe went for 28 points, seven assists, three rebounds and one steal on Sunday against Phoenix. Bledsoe’s recent shooting woes are apparently a thing of the past, as he connected on 63.2 percent from the field Sunday in the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee).

Antetokounmpo will miss Monday’s game against the Nuggets as well, which means Bledsoe will be relied upon again to step up his offense. Bledsoe is averaging 15.4 points per game this season, and went for 15 points against the Nuggets earlier this season. McClure sees Bledsoe posting a game more like Sunday’s effort, and recommends him for your Monday NBA DFS roster.

How to set your NBA DFS lineups on Monday

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