DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Thursday (March 4, 2021) night’s NBA game between the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons
Welcome all, I’m back with more NBA DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) DraftKings showdown tournament picks. Thursday night March 4th, the (10-25) Pistons take on the (18-18) Knicks at 7:30PM ET airing on NBA League Pass.
Latest line has the Knicks -7.5 & the Over/Under is 209.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Pistons and the Over.
New York Knicks at Detroit Pistons DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Immanuel Quickley, Knicks PG (DK $6,400)
Derrick Rose is questionable and likely won’t be returning for this final game before the All-Star break. Quickley has had some big games when he gets minutes. Like last game, where he scored 41 DK FPTS in 29 mins.
For anyone new, this is usually my strategy for most large tournament showdowns. 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 a huge amount of other players if you win or place high in a big tourney.
Showdown Tourney Utility/Value Picks
Alec Burks, Knicks SF ($5,400)
Burks has been held below 12 DK FPTS in two out of his last three games. His ownership should be low and maybe he gets hot tonight.
Wayne Ellington, Pistons SG ($3,600)
Ellington has played over 20 minutes in nine of his last eleven games. He’s scored over 20 DK FPTS in three out of his last six, including 36.8 FPTS last night.
Svi Mykhailiuk, Pistons SG ($2,200)
Due to injuries, Svi played 37 minutes last night and scored 28 DK FPTS. It was the third time in five games he’s scored over 19 DK FPTS. He’s really cheap and could see a lot of minutes again tonight depending on injuries.
