5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/13

NBA DFS has a six 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 – Paul George, SG, LAC @ IND, O/U 232

No Kawhi tonight means I’m loading up on Paul George. Take advantage of his elite usage while Kawhi is off the floor. PG13 is underpriced for the role he’ll play tonight. He’s the alpha on the team, he’ll take the most shots and add peripheral stats to go along with his scoring. In 5 games without Kawhi Leonard this season George is seeing an elite 36.8 usage rate.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG/SF, ATL @ TOR, O/U 224.5

Early news is saying Trae Young may miss tonight’s game which should lead to more usage all across the board for the Hawks. One beneficiary should Young miss tonight’s game is Bogdanovich. He’s seen an uptick in production since the beginning of April. He’s seeing well over 30 minutes a game has not seen a game where he scores in single digits and it shooting the three at an absurd clip.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Jimmy Butler, SF, MIA @ PHO, O/U 217

It’s hard not to like Jimmy Butler for tournaments tonight. Jimmy Buckets does a little bit of everything – He scores, rebounds, passes and plays stellar defense. This month he’s averaging 22.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and a whopping 3.4 combined steals and blocks. Small Forward is typically a tough position to fill on FanDuel so why not just pay up for the best player at the SF spot tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Devonte’ Graham, SG, CHA vs LAL, O/U 206.5

The Hornets are missing a lot of key pieces tonight. They’ll be without LaMelo Ball, Gordon Hayward, PJ Washington, Malik Monk, and even Terry Rozier is doubtful. Someone is going to have to pick up the slack and my thought goes directly toward Graham. He will go against a tough Lakers defense but without so many of Charlotte’s offensive weapons out one has to assume he’ll step up and take more shots.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Domantas Sabonis, PF/C, IND vs LAC, O/U 232

We’re heading back to the Clippers/Pacers game with big man Domantas Sabonis. The Pacers will be without center Myles Turner which should allow Sabonis to play some more minutes as the five. He seems to be looking healthy after dealing with a knee and ankle injury. I feel he’s priced correctly on FanDuel but on DraftKings, he does present a decent value. We were paying north of $9k on DraftKings for his production. He poses a threat to triple-double which makes him even more valuable on DraftKings where you are awarded bonus points for the milestone.
