"Due to" modifies nouns (not clauses).
Be careful with how you use "due to" - it can only be used in very defined ways.
The "due to" clause must modify a noun, and the pairing must make sense!
+ Also, "because of" modifies the entire clause/idea/etc.
+ "Due to" does modify nouns, but it's typically used after the verb "to be."
For example, "The team's win today was due to better conditioning."
