NBA DFS: Giannis Antetokounmpo and top picks for Dec. 9 FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups

The 2018-19 NBA DFS season rolls on Sunday, December 9 with three games on the main slate that gets underway at 6 p.m. ET. There's no shortage of star power available with players such as Kemba Walker, Kawhi Leonard and DeMar DeRozan among the top-priced options. FanDuel is running a $150K Sunday NBA Shot, while DraftKings is hosting a $150K Pull Up Jumper that awards $50K to the winner. Before you enter these NBA DFS tournaments or any others for Sunday evening, you'll want to see the top NBA DFS picks and lineups from Mike McClure. He's a professional DFS player who has won almost $2 million in his career.

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 matchups, statistical trends 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 off to a blistering start, cashing his first five lineups on DraftKings to open the season, as well as recommending multiple other optimal lineups that have led to huge returns for followers such as his Monday night picks that produced a whopping 40x return for tournaments on FanDuel and 15x on DraftKings. He followed that up with more easy cashes on both sites on Wednesday.

For Sunday's slate, McClure is banking on Hornets guard Jeremy Lamb at $6,600 on FanDuel and $6,200 on DraftKings. Lamb is averaging over 17 points and six rebounds in his last 10 games and enters Sunday having scored 30 or more points on DraftKings in seven of his last nine outings. He's a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in for Sunday's slate.

Another pick he loves: Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo ($12,400 on FanDuel, $11,200 on DraftKings), who has recorded a double-double in nine of his last 10 games. DFS owners who have played Antetokounmpo have seen some big rewards recently, including 50 or more points on DraftKings in 10 of his last 11 outings. Lock him in as one of the top overall plays on Sunday.

McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to return 50, even 60 points on both sites, and he comes at a great price. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
