DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Donovan Mitchell, 9,200
From 8,800 in game one to 9,200 credits for game 2, Donovan Mitchell’s escalated price tag comes in the wake of a scrumptious display of shooting from the deep. The point guard delivered a career high 57 points against Denver Nuggets the last time around, a wordclass display which took his side extremely close to a win on the day.
Monte Morris, 3,700
With 16 points and 6 rebounds to his name the last time he took on Utah, Monte Morris will earn a place in our setup for the impending affair. At just 3,700 credits and 30 minutes on the court the last time around, the shooting guard’s ability to deliver from the corners saw him rise to the occasion for the club.
Fred VanVleet, 7,600
Game 1 against the Nets showed that the side is completely inept when it comes to defending. The team ended up conceding a staggering 137 points in 100 possession moments the Raptors had, a horrendous figure which ultimately lead to them being routed on the day.
And making the most of the paper thin defence infront of him was Fred VanVleet. He’s been in the form of his life ever since the league’s restart with him only further upping the ante to stamp his authority on the court with both triples and dimes.
Torrey Craig, 3,100
Although he got a limited outing on the court the last time around, Torrey craig still managed to register a neat showing. At a measly 3,100 credits, the shooting guard is someone who makes for a must have pick for us today with him having the ability of pulling off points in the paint for his side.
Luka Doncic, 11,00
42 points in game 1 and Luka Doncic yet again showed why he’s been the talk of the talk this season. The Dallas Mavericks player yet again waged a lone battle for the side as he thrust everything he had into the encounter in a bid to take his side to a 1-0 lead against the Clippers.
Markieff Morris Sr., 4,800
19 points,6 rebounds and the 4 steals to go with them see us make the Clippers man an instant pick today. He played a crucial role in helping his side curb a rampant Dallas side as he broke apart their plays with his rebounds and deflections.
Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, 4,700
Timothe is truly enduring a pathbreaking moment in his career at the moment. The seeding round has seen him make massive inroads into the Nets side with the player registering a gargantuan 26 points for himself against the Raptors the last time around, a performance which alluded to the breakthrough he’s made in the last couple of months.
Serge Ibaka, 5,700
With the Nets failing to occult Raptors’ forays into the attacking docket, Serge Ibaka ended up having the time of his life on the court. The centre was finally able to find his groove in the bubble as he rang up a slew of reverse scoops and spin and slams for the club.
