NBA DFS Top Plays for Wednesday 4/5/23
With Dallas fighting for their playoff lives, expect the All-Star to leave it all on the line in what might be his final game of the year. Doncic is already leading the league in usage rate and fantasy points, averaging 61 DraftKings points per game. His established 45-point floor makes him a reliable pick, and he could play 45 minutes in this must-win game.
The Kings’ defense has been a weak point this season, ranking tied for 24th in defensive efficiency. Coupled with their above-average pace, they’ve been one of the best matchups in DFS all year. The Mavericks are currently projected to score 123.75 points, which is the top mark on Wednesday’s slate. Despite the Mavs losing three straight games, they are still in contention for a spot in the play-in tournament. A win on Wednesday could force a tie for the No. 10 spot with the Thunder in the loss column.
Doncic is a proven fantasy stud, leading the NBA with over 60 DraftKings points per game. His usage rate has been astronomical, leading to an absurd average. If he receives the 40 minutes, 25 shots, and 40 percent usage rate that he’s accustomed to, he will be an excellent bet for the top-scoring player on this slate.
Domantas Sabonis is a top pick for Wednesday’s NBA DFS slate. The big man has been consistently producing elite fantasy numbers over the past three months, with a 51-point average in that span. He has scored at least 42 DraftKings points in all but four games, and his nightly triple-double flirtations make him a high-upside option.
Sabonis has been overlooked by many despite his incredible season. He has scored at least 36 DraftKings points in all but two of his last 62 games, an outstanding feat. The team has been running their offense through him out of the post, which has led to Sabonis flirting with triple-double averages.
Sabonis faces a favorable matchup against Dallas, with the Mavericks possessing the worst defensive rating since acquiring Kyrie Irving. Sabonis has also been productive against the Mavericks in the past, scoring at least 46 DraftKings points in eight of his last nine meetings with the team, despite facing better defenses.
Since joining the Nets, Mikal Bridges has been averaging an impressive 27.4 points per game over 24 games, resulting in an average of just under 41 DraftKings fantasy points. His average of 1.13 DraftKings fantasy points per minute over the past month is one of the best marks among shooting guards on Wednesday’s slate. While Bridges had a subpar performance in his last game, he has returned positive value in his six previous games.
Bridges faces a favorable matchup against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. The Pistons have a low defensive efficiency ranking of 28th this season, and Bridges has excelled in good matchups recently. The Nets are still fighting to clinch a guaranteed postseason spot in the Eastern Conference, so Bridges can be expected to receive a heavy workload and plenty of opportunities to score big in this game.
In summary, Bridges is a great pick for Wednesday’s NBA DFS slate. With his high scoring potential and favorable matchup against the Pistons, he should be strongly considered for shooting guard positions in fantasy lineups.
Leonard has been on a tear in the second half of the season, scoring at least 36 DraftKings points in 34 of his last 36 games. His average of nearly 50 DK points per game in that span is simply incredible. He’ll have an opportunity to add to those numbers in a pivotal matchup against the Lakers.
With Paul George out, the Clippers will lean heavily on Leonard to secure a win and maintain their playoff positioning. The Lakers have struggled defensively this season, ranking 20th in total defense, so expect Leonard to have an upside game on Wednesday. In their last meeting, Leonard put up 48 fantasy points.
