Saturday, January 14: Best Daily Fantasy Basketball Bets

One of McClure’s top NBA daily fantasy selections for Saturday is Pacers guard Ben Mathurin. He can be had for $4,900 on DraftKings and $5,600 on FanDuel. The 2022 NBA Rookie of the Year candidate is the No. 6 overall choice in the draft and is averaging 17.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game heading into Saturday’s game.

In the most recent game, Mathurin scored 26 points. He has scored at least 19 points in five of the last six games. After Haliburton’s injury, Mathurin saw his second-most playing minutes of the season (39:13) versus Atlanta and took on a more prominent attacking role.

Guard Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks, $12,800 on DraftKings and $12,500 on FanDuel) is another key aspect of McClure’s ideal NBA DFS approach. The young Slovenian is averaging a career-high 34.2 points with 9.0 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game while shooting a blistering 50.1% from the field.

Thursday’s win over the Los Angeles Lakers at home was Doncic’s 10th triple-double of the season. He scored 35 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, and dished out 13 assists. He exploded for 75 points, 19 boards, and 19 dimes against Portland in two meetings this season, while he averaged 40 points, 11 rebounds, and 9.2 assists over his previous 10 games.
