5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/14

NBA DFS has 11 games on DraftKings, FanDuel, and nine on 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 – Bradley Beal, SG, WAS @ SAC, O/U 240.5

Beal is underpriced for the game environment he’ll be in. He was on a minutes limit last game and ended up playing 37 minutes. The pace in this game is going to be a furious one. Washington plays at the fastest pace in the league, while Sacramento isn’t far behind as the 9th fastest. This game does have the highest implied Vegas total on the slate and has the benefit of being a late hammer. I have no issues with locking Beal in this spot.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Facundo Campazzo, PG, DEN vs MIA, O/U 211

There are quite a few studs on this slate that I’d like to fit into my lineups and to get there we need some value. Facundo Campazzo fits that description to a tee. At only $3,700 on DraftKings, he’ll give you salary flexibility to fit some higher-priced pieces. You’ll have to see where the news leads but I’d prefer to play him if he’s starting over Monte Morris ($3,800), either of which would be a fine play for the price.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Stephen Curry, PG, GSW @ OKC, O/U 222

I’m a Curry stan. I live in the Bay Area so you could say this is just a homer pick – so be it. Steph went off for 53 last game without Kelly Oubre (who is listed as doubtful for tonight’s game). The young Thunder don’t match up very well with the Warriors (or anyone for that matter) but without some key pieces Curry will have the green light to let shots fly and when he’s on, he can score in bunches.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Harrison Barnes, PF, SAC vs WAS, O/U 240.5

I want another piece of the fastest, highest-total game on the slate and I want that exposure in the form of Harrison Barnes. Richaun Holmes is doubtful for tonight’s game but the Wizards lack a true game-changing center so it wouldn’t surprise me to see both teams go small. Barnes is familiar with play the 4 and 5 from his days with the small-ball Warriors. He’s playing 35+ minutes in the month of April and I don’t see that letting up anytime soon.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN vs MIA, O/U 211

The Big Honey is my favorite tournament play on the night. It’s almost weird to say that with Murray’s season-ending injury, Jokic may have more ball-handling responsibilities. He already acts as a point/center and he runs the offense in the half-court. This will be the Nuggets’ first game without Murray so it’ll be interesting to watch how the rotations are going to work and who will absorb the usage left behind by the star point guard.
