Dallas’ Luka Doncic gave the basketball world an incredible ending to the Mavericks‘ game against Boston on Saturday, when he hit his third career buzzer-beater in a 107-104 win. Following a big performance with an emotional finish, should you pay a premium for selecting Doncic in Monday’s NBA DFS player pool on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings? He is the most expensive player at his position on both sites but averaged nearly 40 points per game in two meetings with Monday’s opponent, the New Orleans Pelicans, last season.

Following his other two game-winning shots, Doncic shot a combined 39 percent from the field and 3-for-15 from three. Choosing between whether or not Doncic will reproduce his success against the Pels last season or come back with a weaker effort following Saturday’s dramatic outcome makes him one of Monday’s top NBA DFS start-sit decisions. So, before making your NBA DFS picks, start your search by checking 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 Sunday, McClure listed Giannis Antetokounmpo as a must-play on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Antetokounmpo blew up against the Wizards, and scored 29 points with 18 rebounds and five assists to return 67 points on both FanDuel and 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 Monday, November 8 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 Monday, November 8

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Monday is Lakers guard Russell Westbrook at $9,400 on FanDuel and $10,400 on DraftKings. For a few seasons now, Westbrook has managed to stay productive despite his inefficiency, and that should continue being the case on Monday. The Lakers host the Charlotte Hornets, who are just outside of the bottom-third of Fantasy points allowed to point guards on FanDuel and DraftKings.

LeBron James is still out of the lineup due to an abdomen ailment, and Anthony Davis is questionable heading into Monday’s game with a finger injury. Westbrook is going to have to continue to shoulder more of the offensive burden for better or worse. The Hornets have made the second-most field goals in the league so far this season and taken the most attempts. Westbrook should be in for a high-volume night for the Lakers to keep pace.

Another key in McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Memphis forward Jaren Jackson Jr. ($5,800 on FanDuel and $6,300 on DraftKings). The 22-year-old has recovered from a slow stretch of games to close out October with three straight November starts in which he’s put up a combined 46 points, 21 rebounds and six blocks.

Memphis hosts Minnesota on Monday, and the Timberwolves have been one of the league’s lowest-scoring teams when it comes to points in the paint. Minnesota has also been blocked an average of six times per game over its last three. Jackson missed most of last season with a torn meniscus, but has been a top-15 Fantasy power forward on FanDuel and DraftKings this season. Minnesota has also been a top-three matchup for opposing power forwards on both sites and should give Jackson plenty of chances to scoop up Fantasy points on both ends of the floor.

How to set NBA DFS lineups for Monday, November 8

McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
