Finding names in Sunday’s NBA DFS player pool that will reward you with production at both ends of the floor is one of the keys to a tournament-winning lineup. On Sunday, the Sacramento Kings host an Indiana Pacers side that is tied with Brooklyn for giving up the sixth-most opponent steals so far this season, with 8.6 per game. Sacramento’s Tyrese Haliburton leads the Kings in steals this season with 1.3 per game, and he’s recorded six over his last three outings.
Haliburton will be matched up against Indiana’s Malcolm Brogdon, who is tied with two others for the 20th-most turnovers per game in 2021 with 3.33 per game. Can Haliburton, who had 20 points, seven assists and four steals on Wednesday, turn in another huge performance to provide value for your NBA DFS lineups on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings? Before finalizing any of your NBA DFS picks for Sunday, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.
McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He’s 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.
On Saturday, McClure listed Suns point guard Chris Paul as one of his top NBA DFS picks on both sites. The result: Paul lit up the Atlanta Hawks with 16 points, 13 assists, six rebounds with a steal and a block to return 46.7 points on FanDuel and 48 on DraftKings. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Sunday, November 7 NBA DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NBA DFS picks for Sunday, November 7
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Sunday is Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo at $11,400 on DraftKings and $11,300 on FanDuel. The matchup-proof superstar has a bigger matchup against Washington on Sunday than meets the eye, as Milwaukee has underperformed and Washington has been one of the NBA’s early success stories.
Washington allows the second-fewest fast-break points per game which is tough for a player like Antetokounmpo, but the Wizards also give up the second-most points in the paint per game, at 50.9. More than half of Antetokounmpo’s field goal attempts this season have come within 10 feet of the basket and 37 percent have been at the rim. Antetokounmpo may not have his highest shooting volume night, but he should be getting plenty of looks in Washington’s defensive blind spot.
Another key in McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes adding Spurs forward Thaddeus Young ($4,600 on FanDuel and $5,700 on DraftKings). Young is coming off of his biggest game of the season against the Orlando Magic on Friday. The veteran big man put up 12 points with five assists, four rebounds, three blocks and two steals.
Young was included in McClure’s picks for that November 5 matchup against Orlando, and he expects to capitalize on another quality showing from him on Sunday against Oklahoma City. In two games against the Thunder last season, Young didn’t log as much time on the floor compared to other opponents, but he was efficient. He shot 60 percent from the field and finished with 10 assists in just over 35 total minutes played. He also had his fifth-highest usage rate against all opponents versus OKC, and scored 17 points in the game that he started against the Thunder on March 16.
