DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Wednesday (March 3, 2021) night’s NBA game between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers
Hello all, I’m right back at it with more NBA DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks. This time it’s for the Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trail Blazers game at 10PM ET airing on NBA League Pass. Check out the latest line and my picks below.
Latest line has the Warriors -2.5 & the Over/Under is 234 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Blazers and the Under.
Golden State Warriors at Portland Trail Blazers DFS DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Kelly Oubre Jr., Warriors SG/SF (DK $8,400)
Oubre has been held below 24 DK FPTS in two out of his last three games, which could keep his ownership down a bit. (Last game was a blowout where he only played 26 minutes) He’s been great lately other than a few games, scoring over 38 DK FPTS in seven out of his last ten.
Update– Oubre is now questionable. If he sits, I’ll go with Wiggins.
For anyone new, this is basically my strategy for most large showdown tournaments. Taking a player who isn’t one of the top options at captain and hope they have a big game. It leaves enough DK $ to stack the rest of your team. Obviously it’s risky, but you won’t end up tying tons of other players if you win or place high in a big tourney.
Derrick Jones Jr., Blazers SF/PF ($6,600)
Jones is coming off his worst game in weeks with just 13 DK FPTS. Carmelo Anthony was incredible and played over 30 minutes, but that’s not going to happen every night. Jones ownership shouldn’t be high and he’s usually solid with some upside.
James Wiseman, Warriors C ($4,600)
Wiseman has been held below 20 DK FPTS in three of his last four games. Again his ownership likely won’t be very high and he’s got a lot of upside, averaging 22.8 DK FPPG in just 20 minutes a game this season.
Nassir Little, Blazers SF/PF ($1,600)
Little has played over 12 minutes in four straight and scored over 17 DK FPTS in two of those games. Worth a look at that price with low ownership.
