1674597762 368 NBA DFS Top DraftKings FanDuel daily Fantasy basketball picks for

We’re past the halfway point of the 2022-23 NBA season and daily Fantasy basketball players have largely dialed in their NBA DFS strategies. But every night throws curveballs your way and with seven games on the NBA schedule for Tuesday, you’ll still want to be on the lookout for those late scratches that smart players feast on. So who are some of the cheaper options in the NBA DFS player pool tonight that can help you spend big elsewhere?

Jayson Tatum, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard and Julius Randle are all scheduled to be in the action on Tuesday and will be popular options for NBA DFS lineups. So how much exposure should you have to those superstars and how can you strike the right balance to win big in NBA DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on FanDuel and DraftKings? Before you make your NBA DFS picks for Tuesday, 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 Timberwolves wing Anthony Edwards as one of his top NBA DFS picks on DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Edwards had 31 points, five assists, four steals, three rebounds and a blocked shot to return 52.25 points on DraftKings and 51.1 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, January 24

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday is Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, who is listed at $7,000 on DraftKings and $8,100 on FanDuel. After tearing an ACL in the middle of a dominant run following the NBA playoff bubble two seasons ago and missing all of last year, Murray returned to action this season and seems to be finding his rhythm since the calendar turned.

Since the start of 2023, Murray is shooting 48.0% from the floor and 45.3% from the 3-point line while averaging 20.9 points, 5.6 assists and 4.9 rebounds over 11 games. And with Nikola Jokic out the last two games, Murray turned in a 17-14-10 triple-double on Friday and then followed that up with 26 points, nine assists and five rebounds on Sunday. Jokic is questionable for Tuesday night and Murray figures to have a major role whether the two-time MVP plays or not.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Mavericks guard Luka Doncic ($12,600 on DraftKings and $11,900 on FanDuel). It’s been an up-and-down season on the whole for Dallas at 25-23 but Doncic is seemingly willing it into the playoffs at times. He had an eight-day stretch to end 2022 where he had three 50-point outings, including a 60-21-10 triple-double, and his 32 games with 30 or more points lead the NBA.

Doncic is averaging 33.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 8.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game, and he’s had 25 double-doubles and 10 triple-doubles this season. Now he’ll take on a Wizards squad that just traded away Rui Hachimura and that will be without Kristaps Porzingis (ankle). Expect Doncic to spend a lot of time playing with his back to the basket on Tuesday and to put in another big performance at home, where his plus/minus jumps from -1.4 to +8.2.
