NBA DFS: Giannis Antetokounmpo and best picks for April 28 FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups

The 2019 NBA playoffs heat up Sunday with two highly anticipated second-round matchups that feature some of the league's hottest teams. Sunday's main slate provides another opportunity for NBA DFS players to cash big. And with big time playmakers peppering Sunday's NBA DFS main slate, you'll want to identify the players who present the best value before entering your NBA DFS lineups. That will help you afford more expensive, less risky NBA DFS options like Warriors forward Kevin Durant or Rockets guard James Harden. Before entering a Sunday NBA DFS tournament such as the $300K Sunday NBA Shot on FanDuel or the $350K Fadeaway on DraftKings, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. His top NBA DFS picks for April 28, optimal lineups and advice can help you navigate Sunday's slate. 

McClure is 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 statistical trends, matchups 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.

McClure is absolutely rolling through the 2018-19 NBA season, producing multiple optimal lineups that have led to huge returns for followers, including as much as 40x on FanDuel and 84x on DraftKings.

For Sunday's playoff slate, we can tell you McClure is banking on Celtics guard Jaylen Brown at $5,100 on FanDuel and $4,700 on DraftKings. Brown averaged 18 points, six rebounds and 2.5 steals against the Bucks in the regular season and he'll look to put up big numbers again on Sunday. He enters this Eastern Conference clash having returned over 4x value on DraftKings in six of his last eight contests. He's a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in for Sunday's slate.

Another pick he's all over: Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,500 on FanDuel, $10,000 on DraftKings), who averaged 31 points, 10.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists against the Celtics in the regular season. Antetokounmpo also averaged a double-double in Milwaukee's fist round series against the Pistons, which resulted in him scoring 50 or more points on DraftKings in three of the four games against Detroit. Lock him in your Sunday NBA DFS lineup and look for a big return against Boston at home. 

McClure is also targeting an overlooked player who has a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to return 40, even 50 points on both sites, and he comes at a much lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
