NBA DFS: Tobias Harris and top FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks for March 7, 2020

The NBA might not have a marquee matchup on its Saturday NBA schedule, but there will still be hundreds of thousands on the line in NBA DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on FanDuel and DraftKings and an intriguing NBA DFS player pool should make for some varied NBA DFS lineups in all formats. The Grizzlies and Hawks are going head-to-head on Saturday night in a game where the over-under is 234.5. That’s the highest of the night and stars like Trae Young, Ja Morant and John Collins will be undoubtedly popular options because both teams rank inside the top seven in the NBA in possessions per game.

But affording Young and Morant in a game where we’re expecting the two teams to get up and down the floor will require that you find value further down the NBA DFS price list. So before you identify NBA DFS stacks to target and make your NBA DFS picks, be sure to check in with daily Fantasy pro Mike McClure. His optimal NBA DFS advice and strategy can help give you a huge edge on Saturday.

  • Nikola Jokic ($9,700 on FanDuel, $9,400 on DraftKings)
  • Hassan Whiteside ($9,600 on FanDuel, $8,900 on DraftKings)
  • Damian Lillard ($9,400 on FanDuel, $9,600 on DraftKings)

McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Saturday

For Saturday, McClure is high on Sixers forward Tobias Harris ($7,300 on FanDuel, $8,300 on DraftKings). Harris is enjoying another solid season with Philadelphia, averaging 19.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. And he’s had his shooting stroke dialed in of late, scoring 25 points or more in four of his last six games while shooting 48.6 percent from the 3-point line and 50.4 percent from the floor.

On Saturday, Harris has a solid matchup against a Warriors defense that ranks 24th in the NBA in points per game allowed. And Harris should be one of the top scoring options for the Sixers offense with Joel Embiid (shoulder) and Ben Simmons (back) both expected to be out of the lineup.

McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy also includes Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas ($7,100 on FanDuel, $7,300 on DraftKings), who is shooting an impressive 68.4 percent from the floor in his last four games. Valanciunas is averaging 14.5 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game now for the season and expanded range (37.2 percent 3-point shooter) has helped make him more difficult to defend.

Valanciunas had 15 points and 15 rebounds against the Hawks the last time the two teams went head-to-head on Monday. He’s now posted double-doubles in five of his last six games and he’s a good bet to get another on Saturday.

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.
