NBA DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on FanDuel or DraftKings for Sunday's main slate have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo or Anthony Davis is a great way to guarantee production, but all three come with a hefty price tag on both sites. They'll eat up a large portion of your NBA DFS salary cap right off the bat, so making the right call on the value of players such as them will be critical when evaluating Sunday's NBA DFS slate. 

Meanwhile, Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will be among popular NBA DFS stacks as the Celtics take on the Charlotte Hornets at home, a team that's giving up 110.6 points per game.

McClure's top NBA DFS picks for Sunday

For Sunday, we can tell you McClure is high on Lakers guard Rajon Rondo ($4,600 on FanDuel, $4,300 on DraftKings). Rondo comes at an extremely affordable price on Sunday, which will allow you to load your NBA DFS roster with big-time playmakers. Plus, Rondo has scored 25 or more points on DraftKings in four of his last seven games. He's a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in for Sunday's NBA DFS slate.

Part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy Sunday also includes rostering Clippers forward Paul George ($9,000 on FanDuel, $8,500 on DraftKings). George has been virtually unstoppable in recent outings, averaging 28.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists across his last five games. Now he gets an ideal matchup on Sunday against a Thunder squad that has given up an average of 111.5 points per game over their last four contests. DFS owners who have rostered George have also seen some big rewards recently, including 35 or more points on DraftKings in four of his last five outings. Lock him in as one of the top overall NBA DFS plays on Sunday.

How to set your NBA DFS lineups on Sunday

McClure is also targeting another player who has a dream matchup on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to return 50, even 60 points on DraftKings and FanDuel. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
