NBA DFS: Stephen Curry and top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy basketball picks for Dec. 27

News Post || News Now

Finding the right matchup to exploit in NBA DFS tournaments can be the difference between winning big or going home with nothing. And Sunday’s main NBA DFS slate on DraftKings and FanDuel is offering contests with big-time prizes like the $450K Sunday Shootaround on DraftKings and the $400K Sunday NBA Clutch Shot on FanDuel. Whether it’s a guard who has a favorable matchup against a porous defense, or a center who’s capable of putting up a monster stat line, finding the right NBA DFS value picks is key.

Which high-end players can you turn to as lineup building blocks for tournaments on daily Fantasy sites like FanDuel or DraftKings? And which undervalued players can give the salary cap flexibility needed to build a stacked roster?

Top NBA DFS picks for Sunday, Dec. 27

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for his Sunday NBA daily Fantasy lineups is Hornets center Bismack Biyombo at $3,800 on DraftKings and $4,500 on FanDuel. Biyombo is expected to see his minutes increase for the Hornets with Cody Zeller (hand) sidelined four-to-six weeks. 

In Charlotte’s loss to the Thunder on Saturday, Biyombo filled the stat sheet with five points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks. He averaged 7.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 19.4 minutes per game over his 53 appearances last season. Biyombo is a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your NBA DFS lineups for Sunday’s slate.

Part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Warriors guard Stephen Curry ($9,300 on DraftKings, $8,300 on FanDuel), who’s averaging 19.5 points, 8.0 assists and four rebounds thus far this season. Curry posted a double-double in Golden State’s opener, finishing with 20 points and 10 assists against the Nets

He followed that up with a 19 point performance against the Bucks. Curry’s 19 points were enough to lead the Warriors in scoring, and the return of Draymond Green (foot) to Golden State’s lineup should provide a boost for Curry’s daily Fantasy value on Sunday. In addition, Curry gets an enticing matchup against the Bulls on Sunday, a team that’s giving up 124.5 points per game, which ranks 27th in the NBA. Lock him in as one of the top overall NBA DFS picks and look for a big return against Chicago.
