Jalen Brunson hasn’t disappointed in his debut season in the Big Apple, and he’s really amped his game up as of late. Brunson’s three highest-scoring games with the Knicks have come in his last three as he’s hit at least 30 points in each. That certainly puts him on Tuesday’s NBA DFS radar against a Pistons team already down Cade Cunningham and could be without Jaden Ivey as well as the rookie is listed as questionable.
With the injuries to Detroit’s starting backcourt, there are minutes for the taking. Savvy NBA DFS owners will jump on these unsung players who could see more playing time such as Killian Hayes and former Knick, Alec Burks. Which other value finds can you pluck from Tuesday’s NBA DFS player pool? Before making any NBA DFS picks, 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 over $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 Monday, he highlighted Pelicans forward Zion Williamson as one of his top NBA DFS picks on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Williamson scored 23 points to go with eight rebounds, eight assists and three blocks to return 51 points on DraftKings and 52.6 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to NBA action on Tuesday and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday, November 29
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks is Mavericks guard Luka Doncic who is listed at $12,600 on DraftKings and $12,000 on FanDuel. Doncic was the preseason favorite to win the NBA MVP award and his candidacy hasn’t disappointed. He leads the league with 33.1 points, while also adding 8.7 rebounds, 8.4 assists and 1.7 steals per game.
On Tuesday, Doncic and the Mavs will face the Warriors for the first time since the two matched up in the Western Conference Finals last season. Across those five games, Doncic averaged 32 points, 9.2 boards, 6.0 assists and 1.6 steals. Across four regular-season contests against Golden State last season, Doncic had a triple-double in one game and a 41-point night in another. This year’s Warriors squad ranks 27th in points allowed per game, so Doncic is a must-start for Tuesday.
Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Clippers guard Amir Coffey ($3,600 on DraftKings and $3,900 on FanDuel). Coffey has started each of the last three games for LA, and he’s in line for another start on Tuesday with the Clippers sitting Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, John Wall and Luke Kennard.
While Coffey hasn’t lit up the stat sheet across his three starts, he has provided solid production with averages of 10.0 points and 5.0 assists. Perhaps just as important is that he averaged nearly 30 minutes a night over those games, but he’s still priced as an end-of-the-bench guy who is scraping for playing time. That presents value for Coffey in Tuesday’s NBA DFS player pool as he has the looks of someone whose production should far exceed his price tags.
