5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/10

NBA DFS has a seven-game slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. These are the early morning Top 5 NBA DFS Picks for DraftKings and Fanduel. Be sure to dive into the NBA DFS Rankings, Cash Picks, and Player Pool or the GPP Picks and Player Pool afterward. And of course, the Rise or Fall NBA DFS Projections, ownerships, player ratings, and data are a good place to start for daily fantasy sports.

Top 5 NBA DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Kyrie Irving, PG, BKN vs LAL O/U 226.5

Kyrie and the Nets take on the hobbled Lakers tonight. LeBron won’t play but that’s not going to stop Kyrie from wanting to cook his former teammate’s current team. 

Durant is back but judging by Brooklyn’s last game, they’re slowly working him back into action. Kyrie should carry the load for the team and put up some nice fantasy numbers along the way.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Norman Powell, SG/SF, POR vs DET O/U 224.5

Powell is averaging 30 DK points over his last three games, and he’s averaging 42 DK points over his last three games against Detroit. He’s also averaging 31 minutes per game over his last three games.

This is a price play as much as it is a “I think he’ll smash” play. Powell carries a salary of 5.5K on DraftKings tonight. He needs to score 33 fantasy points to hit 6x value. There’s no guarantees in life but I’m liking Powell’s chance of reaching that number tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS @ PHX O/U 228

Westbrook’s salary is 11.3K on FanDuel and rightfully so. He’s a walking triple double. The Wizards are outside of even an expanded playoffs so Russ is going to get his. Washington may or may not win along the way.

Russell is averaging 56 FD points over his last three games, and he’s averaging 61 FD points in his last three games against Phoenix. The only negative is that Washington is on a back to back but I’m not sure if that affects cyborgs like Russell Westbrook.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Enes Kanter, C, POR vs DET O/U 224.5

Kanter comes into tonight’s action with a 5K price tag on FanDuel. He’s averaging 33 FD points over his last three games, but just 22 FD points in his last three against Detroit. That changes tonight.

Jusuf Nurkic is out for Portland tonight so there’s more minutes available to Kanter. If Enes scores 35 FD points tonight, he hits 7x value. I think there’s a very good chance that happens tonight.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS @ PHX O/U 228

When Russell Westbrook is in one of his zones it’s best to just roster him and figure out the rest of your lineups from there. Russ is 10.9K on DraftKings and 11.3K on FanDuel. The double double and triple double bonuses on DK make him more valuable there, but he could drop over 60 fantasy points on either site.

NBA DFS GPP Pivots (Slate Breakers)

The NBA DFS GPP Pivots is for those chasing glory in DFS tournaments on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The goal here for our staff is to identify a GPP pivot, often a price point pivot away from a chalky player, that could potentially break the slate and win you a tournament. Have you ever seen the guy that is lower-owned and went nuclear in tournaments and you think to yourself, “I should have pivoted to him?”. Our goal is to identify those GPP Pivots.

NBA DFS Picks Rankings

The NBA DFS Picks Rankings will be a staple to your daily fantasy basketball research. This list of players is compiled by a staff member while they are making a player pool for DraftKings and FanDuel. These players then get ranked in the form of Tiered Rankings, which you often see in Fantasy Basketball or Fantasy Football. These Tiered Rankings will help you identify the value in both NBA DFS Cash Games and NBA DFS GPP’s as it shows you who they value more at each position than other players.

NBA DFS Picks and Pools (Cash Games)

The NBA DFS Picks and Pools for Cash Games is clutch for anybody who wants to play those on either FanDuel or DraftKings. These are identified in the Tiered Rankings and player notes. This small list of players gives you a road map to putting together an NBA DFS Lineup each and every night.

NBA DFS Picks and Pools (GPP Priority Picks)

The NBA DFS Picks and Pools for GPP’s is crucial for Single Entry players. This list of priority picks are players with slate winning upside each night. They aren’t just the top projected players, they are picks that take into consideration the Rise or Fall ownership projection, tournament leverage, and daily fantasy basketball roster construction.

NBA DFS Strategy and Player Notes

In the NBA DFS Picks Rankings, there is a section for strategy and player notes. These are written up in the form of analysis for the player and best use of the player for DFS. In addition to the notes, being a part of the Rise or Fall Discord Chat is a fantastic way to discuss Draftkings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft with both members and staff. Everyone is in there picking each other’s brains all day long and enjoying DFS together.
