DFS DraftKings Showdown tournament picks for tonight’s (February 24, 2021) NBA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz
Welcome or welcome back, I’m at it again with more NBA DraftKings Showdown tournament picks. Tonight (February 24th) the (22-10) Lakers face (25-6) Jazz at 10PM ET airing on ESPN.
For anyone new, I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right. Ok, check out the line and my picks below.
Latest line has the Jazz -9, Over/Under is 218.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Lakers and the over.
NBA DFS Lakers at Jazz DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Rudy Gobert, Jazz C ($9,000)
I’m looking for Gobert to have a big game tonight with Anthony Davis out. Starting Gobert at captain allows me to also start Lebron & Mitchell if I want, with a decent amount of DK $ left over.
NBA DFS Lakers at Jazz DraftKings Showdown Tournament Utility Picks
Montrezl Harrell, Lakers C ($7,800)
Harrell has stepped it up over his last two games, averaging 40 DK FPPG. I’m thinking he keeps that going here with Davis out.
Wesley Matthews, Lakers SG/SF ($3,000)
Matthews played 26 minutes last game and 31 the game before, where he scored 26.5 DK FPTS. I’m not expecting that again, but I’d be happy with 15-20 DK FPTS at that price.
Derrick Favors, Jazz C ($2,400)
Favors is averaging just 16 mins this season but he’s averaging a solid 17.3 DK FPPG. Could be helpful at that price.
That’s it for now, best of luck out there and see you on the next edition of…
