NBA DFS: LeBron James and top picks for March 24 FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups

With just over two weeks remaining in the 2018-19 NBA regular season, every game has a vastly different storyline. Some teams are battling for their playoff lives, while others are looking to improve seeding. And in some situations, teams are either resting starters to stay fresh for the postseason or possibly even looking to next year if the playoffs are out of reach. That's a lot to evaluate for NBA DFS players. And before entering a Sunday, March 24, NBA DFS tournament such as the $200K Sunday NBA Shot on FanDuel or the $250K Fadeaway on DraftKings, first check in with Mike McClure. He's a professional DFS player who has won almost $2 million in his career, and his optimal NBA DFS lineups, top picks 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 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. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

An NBA DFS pick McClure loves for Sunday: LeBron James at $10,700 on FanDuel and $10,100 on DraftKings. It hasn't been the season James and the Lakers envisioned in L.A. They're now officially eliminated from the Western Conference playoff picture. But James still has plenty of value from a DFS standpoint, and he showed that on Friday when he recorded 25 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds against Brooklyn. James, who is listed as probable with a knee contusion, gets a strong matchup against the Kings on Sunday, so you can confidently lock him in as a top NBA DFS pick.

Part of McClure's NBA DFS strategy includes targeting Rockets point guard Chris Paul ($8,200 on FanDuel, $7,000 on DraftKings) who comes at a very affordable price in what should be a high-scoring matchup against the Pelicans.

McClure is also targeting an undervalued 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 lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
