The 2018-19 NBA season rolls on Sunday, November 4 with six 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 Joel Embiid, LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan and Damian Lillard among the top-priced options. FanDuel is running a $200K Sunday NBA Shot, while DraftKings is hosting a $200K Excellent 8's 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 producing multiple other optimal lineups that have led to huge returns for followers. On Saturday, McClure was all over Heat forward Justise Winslow. The result? He recorded 15 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists -- returning almost 50 points on both sites.
For Sunday's main slate, McClure is high on Timberwolves shooting guard Jimmy Butler at $9,600 on FanDuel and $8,100 on DraftKings. Despite the drama swirling around Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves, he continues to put up solid numbers. In fact, he's averaging over 22 points and five rebounds per game this season. He's also returned over 45 points four times this year to players on DraftKings.
Another pick he loves: Portland Trail Blazers forward Al-Farouq Aminu at $5,100 on both sites. Aminu has recorded a double-double in two of his last four games, and he has a great chance to produce big numbers again on Sunday against a Timberwolves team that gives up 118 points per game. He's a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in for Sunday's slate.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up massive numbers who has a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to score 30, even 40 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.
