NBA DFS Picks: It’s a much longer night with a ten-game slate for Wednesday’s NBA schedule tipping off at 7:00 pm EST. The Sacramento Kings at the Washington Wizards, the Toronto Raptors at the Detroit Pistons, the Brooklyn Nets at the Indiana Pacers, the Milwaukee Bucks at the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics at the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Golden State Warriors at the Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs at the Chicago Bulls, the Miami Heat at the Memphis Grizzlies, the Charlotte Hornets at the Denver Nuggets, and lastly the Los Angeles Clippers at the Dallas Mavericks.
These are my NBA FANDUEL DFS picks for this Wednesday.
De’Aaron Fox $9,100, Kyle Lowry $8,300
The Kings are dealing with quite a few injuries and Fox hasn’t disappointed this year. He has been on an absolute tear since Jan. 30 scoring at least 20 points in 17 of 20 games while getting five or more assists during that span. His statistics show that he is averaging 26.2 PPG, 9.0 APG, 3.7 RPG, and 1.1 steals per game during this stretch.
If Pascal Siakam is out this game against the Detroit Pistons, it is a good option to play Lowry because his usage rate will continue to stay high.
Derrick White $5,000, Tomas Satoransky $3,900
White burned a lot of DFS players against the Detroit Pistons due to foul trouble. With Demar DeRozan out, he should be more productive.
He had 13 points and seven assists. His price is very low and has paid off nicely if you need a cheap player.
Paul George $7,800
George and Kawhi Leonard are always the main players to go after on the Los Angeles Clippers. There are not that many stars in the shooting guard position that separates from the rest.
Caris LeVert $4,400
LeVert will be playing against his former team, the Brooklyn Nets. This is a good matchup for him and has been playing a decent number of minutes since coming back from his injury two games ago. He is very cheap on FanDuel compared to other DFS sites.
The Nets are not a good defensive team and are not that fast-paced of a team.
Kevin Porter $6,300
The Houston Rockets are in shambles as they cannot buy a win. The Rockets have a ton of injuries and essentially have a G-League roster. With John Wall and especially Victor Oladipo out Porter should play like he did last night even if it becomes a blowout.
Will Barton $5,500
Coming out of the All-Star break, Barton has been getting big minutes and he notched his third straight game where he averaged 20+ points Over his last three games, Barton has been a valuable asset to the Denver Nuggets and is averaging 21.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and 3.7 APG over that span.
If you are going to pay up for a stud, Antetokounmpo is the way to go. He had 73 FP last night against the Washington Wizards. He should take advantage of Joel Embiid out once again. He has recorded three straight triple-doubles to begin the second half of the season.
Can’t go wrong with Harris again as he will have a high usage rate once again. He had 30 points and six rebounds against the New York Knicks last night.
Jae’Sean Tate $5,000/ Daniel Theis $4,400
If Christian Wood does not make his return today, Tate will be a value play as he got 45.2 FP last game against the Atlanta Hawks.
There is a good chance that Tristian Thompson, Kemba Walker, and Marcus Smart will sit today. Theis had a solid game against the Utah Jazz with 15 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists in 26 minutes of action.
Richaun Holmes $6,900
With Marvin Bagley and potentially Whiteside sitting out against Washington, look for him to get a ton of playing time. Last game he had 17 points, 15 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 blocks against the Charlotte Hornets. This will be a fast-paced game against the Washington Wizards.
Dwight Howard $5,000
If you are looking for a cheap center, Howard is probably the best option with Embiid not playing as mentioned. There isn’t much value that stands out for the center position in tonight’s slate.
