NBA DFS 2-19-21 DraftKings Picks

on

Welcome to the NBA DFS 2-19-21 DraftKings picks article!

Last night there were just three games in the NBA, but tonight we have a nine-game main slate.

The Denver Nuggets vs Charlotte Hornets game was postponed earlier in the week. The San Antonio Spurs had four players test positive for COVID-19 and the Hornets played them this past Sunday.

The Dallas Mavericks vs Houston Rockets game has also been postponed due to the damage left behind by abnormally cold weather in Texas.

Making the right picks will be crucial tonight with so many games to choose from. And if you want to have some more fun tonight, you can bet with William Hill.

These are the higher-priced players I expect to pay off.

Guards

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns ($8,100)

The All-Star guard has been cooking lately, averaging 30.2 points per game over the past five games, scoring at least 30 points in three of those games.

He should be able to take advantage of the Pelicans’ weak perimeter defense, currently giving up the most 3 pointers to SGs so far.

Last week I recommended Luka when he faced the Pelicans and he exploded with 80.50 DK points.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Book ended the night smashing value as well.

Donovan Mitchell, Utah Jazz  ($8,300)

The Jazz are first in the West and a lot of that has to do with All-Star Donovan Mitchell.

Spida is having a breakout year, averaging a career-best in points (24.2) and assists (5.1) per game.

Particularly I like this matchup if Paul George (toe) and Kawhi Leonard (lower leg) are out again, they are currently questionable.

Not only are these injuries important, but the Clippers are also giving up about 26 points per game to PGs, 4th worst in the league.

Micthell had 52 DK points against them on Wednesday and should have a similar stat line if Mike Conley is out again with right hamstring soreness (currently questionable).

Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors ($10,100)

The former MVP has been playing lights out so far, tying his career-high in ppg (30).

Over the past 4 games, Steph is averaging 53 DK points per game.

The Magic defense is giving up the sixth-most DK points and fifth-most threes to point guards this season, both giving a recipe for success for Curry.

Chef Curry dropped 40 points last week when the teams faced off and he should repeat against the depleted backcourt.

Forwards

Giannis Antetokounmpo Milwaukee Bucks, ($10,800)

The reigning 2 time MVP has played his self again into the MVP conversation. Over his past 4 full games,  Giannis is averaging a ridiculous 70.85 DK ppg.

Giannis had a triple-double when they faced off last Sunday, scoring 24 points,17 rebounds, and 10 assists.

The Thunder are giving up about 50 DK points per game to power forwards, third-most in NBA.

With all this being said, the Greek Freak easily has the highest ceiling on the slate and should continue this tear with Jrue Holiday out (COVID-19).

Jerami Grant, Detroit Pistons ($7,500)

Grant has been playing at a level no one expected and looks like he will grab the Most Improved Player award in a landslide.

Averaging 23.8 points per game, Grant has nearly almost doubled his previous career-high in points. A big factor of this is his usage rate which is a career-high 26%

With Blake Griffin sitting out games until he gets traded, look for the offense to revolve around Grant. Further evidence of this is his last game, where he scored a career-high 43 points against the Bulls.

The Grizzlies allow 48.32 DK points per game to PFs which is the fifth-most in the NBA. He should be in every lineup at this price.

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics ($8,800)

The All-Star forward has improved his game even more with Gordon Hayward being out of the picture, averaging a career-high in points and rebounds at about 26 points and 7 rebounds per game.

Tatum has been getting himself back in rhythm since he was forced to miss some time last month due to COVID.

However, he has scored less than 40DK points in only 3 games since his return on Jan 25., scoring at least 30 points twice in the last four games. This includes 35 points against this Hawks defense on Wednesday.

Jaylen Brown is currently questionable and if he misses tonight’s game then Tatum becomes a must-start.
