DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Tuesday’s (July 6, 2021) NBA Playoffs Finals game 1, between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns
Welcome basketball fans, gamblers, and whoever else. These are my DraftKings showdown tournament picks for the Bucks at Suns game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, July 6th. The game will air on ABC at 9PM ET.
Bucks at Suns NBA DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Deandre Ayton, Suns C ($8,400)
Ayton stepped it up in the conference finals, with three games scoring over 43 DK FPTS. That includes one where he went off for 19 points, 22 rebounds, 4 blocks and 3 assists (61 FPTS). I’m surprised he’s just $8,400, and that plus his recent play could lead to high ownership at captain. I don’t think he’ll be as highly owned as Holiday, Middleton, Paul, Booker and maybe Giannis, but we’ll see.
As of this writing, Antetokounmpo is questionable and it sounds like he’s going to be a game-time call. Normally he’s too expensive/highly owned for me at captain, but I like him here if he plays. I’m thinking his ownership won’t be as crazy high as it normally is.
Cameron Johnson, Suns SF/PF ($2,800)
Johnson missed the last playoff game with an illness, but he’s good to go here. He scored over 20 DK FPTS in three out of his last five, and his price dropped over 1K for this game.
Bryn Forbes, Bucks PG/SG ($2,400)
Forbes is a three point shooter who hasn’t shot it well since the opening series against Miami. His playing time has gone down, but he just needs to hit his shots. In the final game of the opening round, he hit seven 3’s for 28 DK FPTS.
