Description: NBA DFS And Fantasy Team Picks, Studs, Values, Projections, Match Centre on August 6: Lakers and Rockets takes centrestage today as either side looks to return to winning ways
The bubble is treating us in some absolutely unprecedented and maverick results. With players opting out, injuries striking clubs, teams looking to navigate the gruelling schedule and sides resting players, we have been immersed in some unforeseen results to add spice to the seeding round of the marquee league.
Its not just the clamour for the 8th playoff spot in the Western Conference which has seen the league go off but encounters at the top of the two conferences which are setting the competition alight as well. And today’s slated five games promise to be no different with the Rockets and Lakers befittingly wrapping up an intriguing day of basketball action.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Reggie Jackson, 5,800
With Patrick Beverly out for the Clippers, Reggie Jackson is set to be deployed over atleast half of today’s encounter. And with a reasonable 10 points and 6 rebounds and a role in the side’s starting rotations, the points guard offers sublime value for us today.
Dion Waiters, 3,700
Although he’s set to feature as a substitute for his side today, Dion Waiters is still set to play a majority of the Lakers’ outing against the Rockets. With the Lakers looking to scour their way past two games on the bounce, Waiters who posted the 14 points against Oklahoma yesterday comes across as a reassuring pick for the Western Conference leaders.
Duncan Robinson, 5,00
With Jimmy set to miss out and Dragic being listed as questionable as well, Duncan Robinson is someone who makes for a must have pick today. The Miami Heat shooting guard is coming across a Milwaukee Bucks side that has gone onto register two defeats on the bounce, a stuttering side against whom he can emulate his 21 point showing from the foregone skirmish.
Troy Brown, 5,500
Brown’s fixture against Philadelphia is what really enticed us today. The player is up against a side which has shipped in a harrowing 123 points, a number which alluded towards how the side has faltered in its bid to chalk its way past troubled waters.
It’s a backline Troy is going to absolutely love playing against, a defence he can easily clobber with his ability to line up filed points with a high conversion rate.
Luka Doncic, 11,300
There’s just no stopping the imperious and immensely talented Luka Doncic at the moment. He’s fasting making a place for himself in his side’s folklore with the player raking up yet another record after becoming the youngest player to record over 30 points and 20 rebounds in his 34-20-12 triple-double from the bygone contest.
Marcus Morris, 4,200
With 16 points and the 4 rebounds for him in the side’s last outing, Marcus Morris showed what he’s capable out on the court. And up against a defensively vulnerable Mavericks side today, we envision him coming up with a spitting display of that electric display to make the Lakers’ man our pick in this ambit.
Dorian Finney-Smith, 4,700
Dorian might just end up being the best value for us today. The player dropped one of his best performances in the league to guide the side to a closely fought win the last time around as his double-double of 16 points and 16 rebounds saw him take centrestage for the side in both the facets of the game.
Anthony Davis, 10,300
Davis was held back for the Lakers yesterday, a discourse which asserts him of a usual main role for the side against Houston Rockets today. And with the player being in such fluent touch this season for the Lakers with his behemoth 27 ppg and 9 rpb guiding the side towards the top of the Western Conference.
Kelly Olynyk, 4,800
With 15-6-8 in his bygone contest, Kelly has more than made up for Butler’s absence. The power forward has nonchalantly roped in the reverse scoops and spin and slams, a skill set which is set to see him get over 30 minutes yet again for the side.
