On Tuesday, McClure rostered Dallas Wings guard Allisha Gray as a value pick on FanDuel. The result: She had one of her strongest performances of the year with 15 points and six assists. Anybody who had her in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable night.

For Thursday’s single-game slate for Sparks vs. Wings, McClure likes Dallas guard Allisha Gray at $5,000 on FanDuel and $8,700 on DraftKings.

Gray has scored in double-figures in three of her last five games and can put up strong numbers in other categories. She had five rebounds in her last outing against Phoenix and six assists in the prior game against New York, so lock her in as a value pick and watch the points rain down. 

Another pick McClure loves for Thursday: Sparks forward Candace Parker at $11,000 on FanDuel and $18,900 on DraftKings.

Parker is one of the most balanced forwards in the league and she’s a threat to go off for a triple-double on any given night. She was one rebound shy of a triple-double earlier this week against Seattle. Look for her to put up big numbers against a Dallas defense that gives up 81 points per game.

McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream individual matchup Thursday. The stars are aligning for her to score 30, even 40 points on both sites, and she comes at a price that won’t break the bank. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
