DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Wednesday (April 14, 2021) night’s NBA game between the Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets
Hello again, I’m literally right back at it and this time with NBA DraftKings showdown tourney picks. I just finished MLB picks for tomorrow night’s games if anyone is interested. Ok, so tonight at 10PM ET, it’s the (28-26) Miami Heat heading to Denver to take on the (34-20) Nuggets.
I usually don’t mention the obvious top players, but Nikola Jokic is must-start for me and Jimmy Butler is close. Alright, check out the line and then on to the picks.
The latest line has Denver -4 and the Over/Under is 214. If I were a betting man, I’d take Denver and the over.
Miami Heat at Denver Nuggets DK Showdown Tourney Captain Pick
Will Barton, Nuggets SG/SF ($7,200)
Barton was just held under 10 points for the first time in six games, it happens. But now Jamal Murray is going to be out for a while, which should lead to more opportunities for Barton. The Heat have struggled against SG’s this season.
For anyone new to these, taking a player that isn’t one of the top options is basically my strategy in all large NBA tourneys. Obviously it doesn’t work as much as playing the top options at captain. But it pays off nicely when it does, you won’t be tied with a huge amount of people if you win or place high.
Kendrick Nunn, Heat PG ($5,600)
Nunn is inconsistent, but that could be good for tourneys if you get him on the right night. He’s scored over 28.8 DK FPTS in three of his last five games, including a 39 FPT game with Oladipo out (he’s out again this game).
Facundo Campazzo, Nuggets PG/SG ($4,000) or Monte Morris, Nuggets PG/SG ($4,200)
Both started in games when Murray was recently out and both played pretty well. I don’t know which one is starting at this point, but that’s who I’ll be going with.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
