DraftKings showdown tournament picks for Saturday (February 27, 2021) night’s NBA game between the Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks
Welcome or welcome back, I hope you’re all having a fine day or evening. I’m right back at it with more NBA DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks. Satuday night February 27th, the 22-12 Nets take on the 15-16 Mavericks at 8:30PM ET airing on ABC.
For anyone new, I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right. Enough of that bs, check out the latest line and my picks below.
Latest line has the Nets -4 & the Over/Under is 226.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Nets and the Over.
Dallas Mavericks at Brooklyn Nets DFS DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Kyrie Irving, Nets PG/SG ($10,600)
Harden and Doncic will both likely be incredibly highly owned in the captain spot. So I’m gonna go with the cheaper and likely lesser owned Irving. Kyrie has averaged 46 DK PTS over his last 5 games with Durant out.
Update- Irving is not playing tonight due to injury.
Ok that sucks, hopefully he’ll be back soon. Now I’ll likely be going with Kristaps Porzingis at captain instead. He’s returning tonight after missing three games so his ownership should be lower than usual.
DraftKings Showdown Tourney Utility/Value Picks
DeAndre Jordan, Nets C ($7,000)
Jordan is inconsistent with upside, which is perfect for tourneys, if you happen to start him when he has a big game. His ownership shouldn’t be too high and just this week he scored 43 DK FPTS against the Clippers. I’d like this pick better if I knew he was starting tho.
Josh Richardson, Mavericks SG/SF ($5,800)
Richardson is also inconsistent, so the same thing goes about ownership and all that. He’s scored over 32 DK FPTS in 4 out his last 11 games.
Willie Cauley-Stein, Mavericks C ($2,600)
WCS has scored over 10 DK FPTS in 6 straight. He’s played at least 15 mins in 5 out of the last 6 games.
Nicolas Claxton, Nets C ($2,000)
Claxton is coming off a huge game vs Orlando where he had 27 DK FPTS in just 15 mins. Jeff Green is currently questionable, I’d give Claxton a shot if Green sits.
Update #2- Jeff Green is playing tonight.
That’s it for now, best of luck out there and see you on the next edition of…
