NBA DFS 5-12-21 DraftKings Value Picks

Welcome to the NBA DFS 3-31-21 DraftKings Value Picks article! We’ve got a ten-game slate tonight with some great value picks and some great pairings.

The cheap pairing is the Nets’ Joe Harris ($5,400) and Blake Griffin ($5,000). Harris is averaging 12.5 points in his last ten games, and Griffin had a spectacular Nets debut with 17 points.

The intermediate pairing is the Knicks’ Alec Burks ($6,200) and Derrick Rose ($4,800). Burks has scored over 20 points in four of his last five games, and Derrick Rose is averaging 13.5 points this season. They are playing the Timberwolves, who allow the most fantasy points to all positions.

The expensive pairing is the Bulls’ Nikola Vucevic ($9,100) and Coby White ($5,200). Vucevic destroys DeAndre Ayton, and he averages 21.2 points when guarded by Ayton. White is 11.6 points in his previous five games.

10-Game Slate

  • Miami Heat @ Indiana Pacers
  • Portland Trail Blazers @ Detroit Pistons
  • Dallas Mavericks @ Boston Celtics
  • Houston Rockets @ Brooklyn Nets
  • Utah Jazz @ Memphis Grizzlies
  • New York Knicks @ Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Toronto Raptors @ Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Sacramento Kings @ San Antonio Spurs
  • Milwaukee Bucks @ Los Angeles Lakers
  • Chicago Bulls @ Phoenix Suns

Point Guard

Tyler Johnson, Brooklyn Nets $3,300

Tyler Johnson is going to be a long shot value play. He is only averaging 6.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in his previous five games, but he is averaging 21.7 minutes, so he’ll have a chance to have a big scoring night against the terrible Houston Rockets defense.

The Rockets allow 22.9 points, 8.2 assists, and 7.1 rebounds per game to point guards.

There is a good chance that this game turns into a blowout, so it should give Johnson more minutes and opportunities to have a double-digit game.

Shooting Guard

Derrick Rose, New York Knicks $4,800

Derrick Rose is back after a 10-game absence due to health and safety protocols. He had a solid outing against the Bucks with 13 points, two steals, one assist, one rebound, and one block. He had 16 points, two rebounds, two assists, and one block against the Heat.

Before he had to leave due to protocol, Rose averaged 12.5 points, 4.9 assists, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in his previous ten games. Rose will get another tremendous easy matchup against Minnesota to shake off the rust and regain his offensive prowess.

The Timberwolves allow sixth-most fantasy points to shooting guards this season. They allow 23.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game to shooting guards.

Small Forward

Bojan Bogdanovic, Utah Jazz $4,800

The Utah Jazz leads the league in percentage of points off three-pointers, and Bojan Bogdanovic is one of the team’s best three-point shooters. He is averaging 6.3 three-pointers attempts this season, so Boogie is just a hot streak away from a 20-plus point game any night.

Tonight should be the night for Bogdanovic since he faces off against the Grizzlies, who allow the most fantasy points to small forwards. Memphis allows 23.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game to small forwards.

Power Forward

Robert Covington, Portland Trail Blazers $6,000

Covington has scored double-digit points seven out of his last ten games. He is averaging 11.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, two assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.7 steals during that stretch. Plus, he is coming off a double-double against Toronto Raptors, and now he has a great matchup against the consistent rebuilding Detroit Pistons.

The Pistons allow the fourth-most fantasy points to power forwards. They allow 21.6 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to power forwards this season. Covington can easily record his second consecutive double-double tonight.

Center

Jakob Poeltl, San Antonio Spurs $5,800

 

Poeltl is back in the saddle again and once again has a great matchup, so you can save money and spend elsewhere.

He is averaging 10.2 points, eight rebounds, 2.4 blocks, and one assist in his previous five games. His recent production isn’t too surprising since Poeltl is averaging 10.2 points and nine rebounds since the All-Star break.

Tonight, he is going against the Kings, who allow the fourth-most fantasy points to centers this season. The Kings allow 23.5 points, 16.9 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game to centers this season.
