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

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Joel Embiid, C, PHI @ BOS O/U 221.5

The Process looks to be recovered from his knee injury, though he was held out of Sunday’s game as a precaution he is not listed on today’s injury report and I see nothing concerning a minutes limit. Embiid seems to enjoy going against the Celtics. In the two times, they faced this season he’s put up 63 and 58.3 DraftKings points. The Celtics have no one to really match up with Embiid and he should be able to feast again tonight against the Celtic’s smaller defenders.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Talen Horton-Tucker, LAL @ TOR O/U 209.5

The second-year man is providing a nice boost off the bench for the LeBron-less and AD-less Lakers. He’s seen an uptick in minutes in LeBron’s absence and is making the most of his opportunities. Over the Lakers’ last 5 games THT is averaging 23 minutes a game, scoring in double figures (10.6 points), while getting those other peripherals as well – 2.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.6 steals. On a night filled with studs feel free to take the salary savings THT provides.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Pascal Siakam, PF, TOR @ LAL O/U 209.5

Pascal Siakam was part of my write-up yesterday and he’s in again today. He’s in a similar situation in that it appears as if Kyle Lowry and Fred Van Vleet are out again, he’ll be the main beneficiary. The Raptors are on the second night of a back-to-back so it may be something to be cautious of. Last night Siakam played 36 minutes, put up 16 shots, and had those a combined 3 steals and blocks. Take advantage of the usage he soaks up if Lowry and Van Vleet are out.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Danilo Gallinari, SF, ATL vs NO O/U 228

Atlanta’s wings seem to be struggling with injuries at this point in the season. De’Andre Hunter had a procedure done to his knee on Monday, Cam Reddish is still dealing with his Achilles issue, and John Collins looks like he’ll miss extended time due to the ankle injury he sustained. So while he isn’t the sexiest of names we’ve seen him break slates with his shooting ability. He’s seen 29 and 36 minutes over the Hawk’s last two games while shooting 45% in his last two. I love the salary saving only $5,200 on FanDuel.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Trae Young, PG, ATL vs NO O/U 228

I’m going back to the Hawks with Trae Young as my favorite tournament play of the night. On top of all the other injuries, Clint Capela showed up on the injury report with a sore hand. If Capela is out on top of all those other injuries I’m expecting Young to have carte blanche on the court. He’s already the main facilitator of the offense and this should allow him to be a bit more aggressive on the offensive end of the floor and shoot until he can’t shoot anymore.
