The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the hottest teams in the NBA, winning five of their last six games. The trio of Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and James Harden have gelled faster than many pundits expected and have the Clippers looking like a serious threat in the Western Conference. George, Leonard, and Harden will be popular NBA DFS picks in the Wednesday NBA DFS player pool. Should any of the the three be a part of your NBA DFS strategy and NBA DFS lineups on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings?

Wednesday’s NBA DFS player pool also includes top options such as Nikola Jokic, Victor Wembanyama, Kevin Durant, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, so finding values will be crucial for daily Fantasy basketball players to include some top options in NBA DFS lineups. Before making your NBA DFS picks, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks, and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Jimmie Kaylor.

Kaylor is a DFS and betting expert for SportsLine, who won a DraftKings Millionaire Maker contest in 2022. He uses a combination of his background as a former college and professional athlete and his keen eye for statistical trends when making his picks and locking in his DFS lineups. Kaylor enters the 2024 calendar year with multiple five-figure tournament cashes on his DFS resume.

Kaylor’s approach allows him to find the best NBA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he only shares on SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NBA DFS player.

Last Friday, Kaylor highlighted Mavericks guard Luka Doncic as one of his top picks in his NBA DFS player pool on both sites. The result: Doncic erupted for 73 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists, easily going down as the top scoring player on both sites Anybody who included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Kaylor has turned his attention to NBA action on Wednesday and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Wednesday, January 31

For Wedneday, one of Kaylor’s top NBA DFS picks is Nuggets center Nikola Jokic ($11,300 on DraftKings and $11,900 on FanDuel). Jokic is coming off a triple-double against the Milwaukee Bucks where he totaled 25 points, 16 rebounds, and 12 assists. He is early averaging a triple-double for the season at 26.3 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 9.0 assists per game. 

Jokic and the Nuggets face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. The Thunder allow 112.9 points per game, and they don’t match up particularly well with Jokic. In his last 10 games against OKC, Jokic is averaging 23.6 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 8.1 assists per game. Kaylor suggests paying up for Jokic on Wednesday, with his hefty price tag not deterring him from rostering the two-time MVP. 

Another part of Kaylor’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard ($8,200 on DraftKings and $9,200 on FanDuel). Leonard had 30 points, eight rebounds, and three assists in his last outing against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. He has scored 25 or more points in three of his last four games.  

The 32-year-old is averaging a team-high 23.8 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists, and 1.7 steals per game this season. The Clippers are playing the Wizards, who are allowing a league-worst 124.0 points per game this season. In his last 10 games against the Wizards, Leonard is averaging 27.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. See Kaylor’s other NBA DFS picks right here.
