DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Sunday’s (June 27, 2021) NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoffs game 3, between the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks
Welcome basketball fans, gamblers, and anyone else out there. These are my NBA DraftKings showdown tournament picks for the Bucks at Hawks conference finals playoffs game 3 on Sunday, June 27th. The series is currently tied 1-1, game 3 airs on TNT at 8:30PM ET.
Bucks at Hawks NBA DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Khris Middleton, Bucks SG/SF (DK $10,000)
Middleton has struggled early on in this series. He’s averaging just 34.3 DK FPPG and has shot 2-16 from three point range. In the last two games against Brooklyn, he averaged 62.75 DK FPPG. His ownership will likely be lower than normal due to his recent struggles, but he’s due to turn it around.
In terms of the other top captain plays, I like Young, Holliday and Capela. I’ll def be starting Giannis, just not at captain. I think he’s too expensive and he’ll likely be the highest owned.
Kevin Huerter, Hawks SG/SF ($7,400)
Similar to Middleton, Huerter’s struggled in this series, after having two big games to close out the last one. He’s averaging just 15.5 FPPG over the first two compared to 43 FPTS over his last two games vs Philly. I expect his ownership to be low (for a showdown), and he can easily heat up again at home here.
Bobby Portis, Bucks PF/C ($3,200)
Portis has looked great in limited action this series. He scored 22.5 DK FPTS in game one in 15 mins, then 17.3 FPTS in game two in 18 mins. So the playing time has gone up a bit and maybe that continues here.
