DFS DraftKings tournament picks for tonight’s (February 22, 2021) NBA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Washington Wizards
Welcome or welcome back, I’m at it again with more DFS picks. This time it’s for the NBA, which I haven’t done in a while. The (22-9) Lakers take on the (10-17) Wizards at 10PM ET tonight on NBA TV. 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 enough of that bs, check out the line and picks below.
Latest line has the Lakers -7, Over/Under is 227 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Wizards and the over.
NBA DFS Lakers vs Wizards DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Russell Westbrook, Wizards G ($12,600)
Westbrook, Lebron & Beal are the top $ options by far in this game on DraftKings, and rightfully so. Choosing which one to start at captain and which to fade tonight is tough. I decided to go with Westbrook, he’s coming off a great shooting game and hopefully he keeps that going.
In terms of a risky and cheaper captain, I’d take a shot with Wizards PF/C Rui Hachimura or Harrell.
NBA DFS Lakers vs Wizards DraftKings Showdown Tournament Utility Picks
Montrezl Harrell, Lakers C ($7,400)
Harrell was expected to see more minutes with Anthony Davis out, but that hasn’t been the case. He did see 24 mins last game vs Mia, where he scored 37 DK FPTS. It’s a good matchup for him tonight, hopefully he gets enough playing time.
Talen Horton-Tucker, Lakers SF ($3,800)
Similar to Harrell, THT usually puts up a good amount of fantasy points when he gets playing time. He’s seen over 25 mins in 2 of his last 4 games, including 28 mins against Brooklyn.
Alex Len, Wizards C ($3,400)
Len only played 5 minutes last game vs Portland, and didn’t see the floor in a few recent games. But he’s scored over 22 DK FPTS in six of the last eight games he’s played in.
Deni Avidja, Wizards SF/PF ($3,200)
Similar to Len, Avidja only played 11 mins last game, but he’s been playing around 25 mins per game recently. He’s scored over 15 DK FPTS in eight out of the last eleven games.
That’s it for now, best of luck out there and see you on the next edition of…
