Wednesday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Regular Season wraps up tonight with 12 games on the schedule. Here’s some NBA Daily Fantasy plays to consider for today’s finale.
*Be sure to check your lineup before the start of the 8PM ET games. There have been some guys pulled due to rest lately that we can’t plan for.
Point Guard – T’Wolves’ Jeff Teague (vs. Denver, 8PM ET) $7,200
The Timberwolves and Nuggets are playing for the final spot in the West tonight in what should be a great game. Teague will need to be at his best and he has been strong lately, scoring 46.5/47 over his last two contests. He has been playing good money and I like him to have a good showing tonight.
Shooting Guard – Pistons’ Luke Kennard (at Chicago, 8PM ET) $4,300
Kennard has been getting the starts for Detroit lately and he has produced in that role. He has over 33 fantasy points in each of his last two games while getting starts. He also is 7 of 10 from 3-point land in those two games. Tonight he gets to play big minutes against a bad Bulls’ defense.
Small Forward – 76ers’ JJ Redick (vs. Milwaukee, 8PM ET) $5,800
Redick has been playing well lately, scoring over 33 fantasy points in three of his last four, including two games over 40 fantasy points. Tonight he should continue to see a lot of minutes against the Bucks in a game where the 76ers can lock up the third seed in the East. Look for Redick to fire up plenty of shots. If he gets hot, he can push for 50 fantasy points.
Power Forward – Pelicans’ Nikola Mirotic (vs. San Antonio, 8PM ET) $6,500
Nobody has been hotter than Mirotic. He has three straight games with over 50 fantasy points and tonight he is in another big game for the Pelicans. The Spurs offer a tough opponent for him, but he should continue to find ways to produce. While expecting 50 points may be much, I think he can push for over 40 again with a really cheap price.
Center – Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic (at Minnesota, 8PM ET) $10,600
As we mentioned, this is a huge game for the Nuggets and T’Wolves, so I like Jokic to have another of his monster games. He has put up over 63 fantasy points in two straight and over 50 in seven straight. A triple-double threat most nights, I could see Jokic getting those numbers again against a weaker Minnesota defense.
