5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/9

NBA DFS has a nine-game slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, and an eight-game slate 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 – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS @ GS O/U 240

Westbrook has been a triple double machine and tonight he draws a matchup against the Warriors in a game with a 240 implied total. That means Vegas believes the two teams will fly up and down the court. And that’s just what Russell loves.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, HOU @ LAC O/U 221.5

Olynyk is averaging 40.5 DK points over his last three games. If he’s playing around 30 minutes he’s worth a roster spot. If we find out his minutes are reduced tonight then I can’t recommend him as strongly.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Steph Curry, PG, GSW vs WAS O/U 240

I’m looking for a high-scoring, close game from the Warriors and Wizards tonight. This is good because Steph should play the whole game which gives him a solid chance to hit value. Obviously avoid Curry if you’re worried about a blowout or there’s news that the tailbone is flaring up.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, HOU @ LAC O/U 221.5

I like Kelly on both sites tonight. He’s 6K on FD and DK so I like him a little more on FanDuel. Like I said above, I think he’s a good play if he’s projected for around 30 minutes or more. If he’s only going to play 25 minutes then I’m not as interested.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS @ GS O/U 240

Vegas is projecting a shootout in the Bay Area and I’m gonna trust them on this. If the game goes as Vegas is predicting then I don’t see how Westbrook doesn’t put up a triple double tonight.

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.
